And that’s the beauty of this trend: The versatile accessory adds interest while serving a practical purpose – keeping your hair out of your face. (It’s also a great way to distract from dirty strands.)
Add some bling to your workwear, dress up a casual outfit with a playful print, or choose one with feminine charm for date-night. No matter what you’re wearing, you can accessorize with a headband and little else. So, channel your inner Gossip Girl and shop some the chicest styles below.
