Head Gear: The Best Summer Accessories For Your Head

Summer is a time of the year where?we like to step outside our comfort zones; almost as if the sun’s rays contained a hidden fashion-focused power. It’s a time where we swap the subtle for the audacious and embrace changing trends with confidence and?poise. While minimalism will forever remain a favourite in our hearts, it’s time to break out the big spangly earrings, the oversized hat, and the bejewelled sunglasses because this year it’s all about?accessorising from the neck up, and more is more. Here are some of the most covetable accessories for your head this year.

The Neo-Scarf

No longer just for your neck, scarfs are an easy and chic way to keep your summer tresses off of your sun-kissed face. As seen on the catwalks of Gucci, Anya Hindmarch, Christopher Kane, it’s a creative and easy way to tie up your hair for days at the beach and sophisticated updo’s for evening time.

ICYMI: 4 Ways To Wear A Scarf For Summer

Peaky Blinders

Fedoras. The trilby. Boaters. Wide-brims, ?peaked caps, sun hats, flat caps, baseball?caps, beanies, the bucket,?Panama’s. Hats are now a frivolous accessory that, in an instant, have the ability to morph a simple outfit into an entire thought-out and chic ensemble. Sported by fashion brands Sophie Webster, Moncler Gamme Rouge, Miu Miu, and Max Mara to name a few, hats are a simple and cost-effective way to renew and reenergize a look or style. Tie hair into a ponytail with a corner of your silk scarf. Wrap the rest of the scarf around your ponytail and then twist into a top knot. Secure it with pins and you’re ready to go.

Royalty-Worthy Head Jewels

Nothing says you’re summer ready quite like dazzling your hair with jewels and crystals. It adds a whimsical element to your summer wardrobe and it’s a nostalgic throwback that brings your hair from basic to bold in the best way. Head jewels are not isolated to festivals and occasion-wear, but ideal for everyday summer sophistication.

All Eyes On Ears

There is?no room for subtlety here: massive earrings are a key feature for this summer.?Alexander McQueen, Proenza Schouler and Giorgio Armani were just a few who lead the way on SS17 catwalks with giant bejewelled spheres, dangly bouquets of flowers, abstract shapes, and striking colours. Remember; no pain, no gain.

Also making an appearance is the one earring look. Don’t be fooled, we didn’t forget the other one…it’s fashion, dah-ling.

The Fan

Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele is showing us how to kill the heat in the chicest way possible: with a fine silk Gucci fan complete with ebony handle with a silk tassel. For a cool €400, it doesn’t come cheap; but will?keep you?fully shaded all summer long. If you’re looking for a slightly more affordable alternative, Gucci has too, a paper fan that is going for??220 too.
