You Said: Yes to Headbands

Spunky Feather HeadbandWe asked: Would you wear Headbands?

You said:  Overwhelmingly - Yes to Headbands, which were voted in 74% to 26%.

Style tip? Gossip girl’s Leighton Meester may have single-headedly launched the modern headband movement, but you don’t have to be an Upper East Sider (or a Hollywood starlet) to wear the trend.  If you’re unsure about headbands, why not give them a try with a solid colored style with a thin band?  If you’re feeling more adventurous, we recommend going after this trend head-on with an ornamented headband.  Think brooch-style jewels, oversized silk flowers, dainty ribbons, or even spunky feathers.  After all, bold is beautiful.

Next question: Velvet is a classic cold-weather fabric, but its sheen makes it somewhat difficult to wear.  But what do you think?   Tell us, would you wear Velvet?  Cast your vote on the sidebar!

    I agree. It’s interesting to see a classic accessory like the headband make such a stylish comeback! The idea to embellish with flowers, feathers and jewels ups the feminine factor by a lot.

    I just found some feathered headbands at Urban Outfitters.. they are nice elastic-style feathered headbands that range from styles like the one in the post, and more subtle ones where little feathers line the top of the band. They’re remarkably comfortable, too.

    I’ve seen a number of girls wearing Axel-Rose style headband-anas. What is Omiru’s take on this style? I find it tragic and begin to understand the psychology underlying arson.

    Thanks for the heads-up about Urban Outfitters’ headbands, Christa! I’m really loving the feathered headbands – both the bold ones and the more sophisticated ones (like,-product.startDate&navCount=324&navAction=jump&color=).

    Also, thanks for the link to Interesting how they format their links to products when they do their outfits :)

    Its really cool, the hair band is stylish which looks really good with feathers.If the hairband is with flowers it also suits so good.

    You should check out the Free People website or catalog. Headbands worn across the top of the head is an old fad now that’s been out for a couple years. Free People features the softer headbands that are worn across the forehead. Hot new trend!
