Red Bow

Headband changes the 'mood' of our outfit and adds interest to our hair when we need them the most. #badhairdaysarereal
Here goes a few tips on how to wear headbands when you're a grown up without looking like an overaged Didi. Anyone? Dexter Didi?

.01 Pick the right colour.
You are more likely to not-go-wrong with rich colours from the classic palette.
I'd say, go with colours that you are most comfortable with and in my case it would be Black, Navy and Beige.
However, since deciding on wearing more colours for summer, luscious Ruby Red fits the bill.

.02 Pick the right pattern and fabric.
Satin, silk and tweed could easily make an accessory look 10 times more expensive and more appropriate for formal occasions.
Do venture out on classic patterns (Dots, Stripes & Mini-Florals) for a cute pin-up look. 
I normally stray away from patterns because most of them weigh down my complexion. 
Which is why 90% of my wardrobe consist of plain pieces with just a few stripe-y ones in between. 

.03 Pick the right band size.
There are so many out there for you to choose from.
From thin slinky ones to thicker ones and even double braided ones. Possibilities are endless!!
Mine is about an inch wide which is great for making a soft statement.
Consider getting slimmer ones for a more minimal, effortless & chic look. 
They are more comfortable to have on for a full day of work and errands too. #girlboss

Headbands have always been a timeless head piece for women in the past centuries. 
I hope you are now ready to play with headbands at any beautiful age.
