Your Must-Have SS17 Accessory? The Humble Hairband

Louis Vuitton showcased them on the catwalk and?Irish contemporary luxury brand Stable is currently stocking them – hairbands are the new IT item for right now. For less than the price of lunch you can refresh an outfit so it instantly says SS17 – that is the power of the hairband this season.?Here’s how designers styled them on the runways and where you can find yours?on the high street.

This pretty floral hair?piece?from Accessorize requires a lot of irony to pull off, but I like it.

An easy way to incorporate this season’s key colour into your look, this pink hairband from H&M has a nice knotted detail at the front which adds texture and interest.

Knotted hairband, €4.99 at H&M?

It may be spring, but given the way the weather has been this week, I can’t think of anything I’d like to wear more than this gorgeous furry headband from & Other Stories.

Moscow headband, €25 at & Other Stories

For a more individual look, use these pretty steel hairpins from Cos to create a subtle hairband effect.

A?beautiful silk scarf will double up as a hairband and a turban. Take inspiration from Undercover and knot at the front for a retro 1950s housewife feel.
