With the summer heat on full blast (but honestly, this New England weather is cray), our beloved hair can be our worst enemy. Thankfully, with a new summer comes new trends and the headpiece is in! Headpieces are a perfect way to keep your hair up and out of your face in the summer sun.
The headpiece has been recycled, like many different trends, from the 70s. The 70s inspired look has brought back bell bottoms and a more hippie and bohemian vibe for the summer. The flower garland headpiece is especially popular now during festival season.
The headpiece is great for looking polished even though you may have just rolled out of bed or plan to venture to the beach; they have flowers, beads, pearls and even rhinestones making each accessory unique in its own style that can be super extravagant or very simple. The 2013 Bridal Fashion Week was all over statement headpieces on the runway and it wasn’t long until other designers followed. Alexander McQueen’s headpieces were seen on the runway at Paris Fashion Week. The honeycomb, as McQueen’s headpiece was called, intricately used textural details to set one apart from the next.
Regardless of the season or decade, when wearing a headpiece, the key is to OWN it. Be fashion forward and try something new. Try a more subtle, crochet headpiece to do some day shopping and a jewel or stone-encrusted headpiece for a night on the town. For the crafty ones out there, try a DIY flower garland headpiece.
