It's no secret that hair accessories have made a comeback of epic proportions over the last year, and they're not going away any time soon. In fact, Olivia Culpo's leather headband should be the next piece you add to your stash. A step up from the classic '90s trend, this elevated version will take even the most basic look to a new level of high-fashion elegance.
All eyes have been on Paris as the fourth leg of fashion month marches on, and Culpo's looks continue to impress. Amongst the crowd of A-list celebrities that attended Prada's presentation on Weds., Culpo's ensemble definitely stood out. The model sported a full look from the designer's spring collection, consisting of a knee-length, pleated skirt with black seams and a sheer button-down blouse layered over a form-fitting tank top.
Although the clothing was stunning, it was her use of accessories that truly stole the show. Culpo opted for a pair of knee-high socks that effortlessly complemented her Mary Jane-style pumps in black patent leather and a matching striped bag. The outfit-making final touch? A padded leather headband with gold studs that sat at the crown of her head, giving off the vibe of an edgy tiara.
Headbands come in all shapes and sizes, ranging from bohemian floral pieces to embellished jewels. However, this thick leather version made for an elevated, on-trend addition to Culpo's black-and-white getup.
While your tray of hair accessories is likely already overflowing, this new style may be the perfect excuse to make more room. Fix a bad hair day in the most polished way by placing a padded headband on the crown of your head before stepping out the door, or use it to upgrade your beautifully styled curls.
Headbands work on every hair length and type, whether you have hip-length waves or a choppy pixie. Channel your inner royal (minus the diamond-encrusted heirloom) with one of these statement hair accessories, ahead.
