We didn’t think this trend would actually take off. It’s just so–strange. But then Nicole Richie was spotted wearing one…and then Peaches Geldof was spotted wearing one…and then Charlotte Ronson…
It seems sequined headbands (a 20s style inspiration) are the new IT item for the indie fashionista set…the kind that reads Nylon magazine and wears fringe vests over loud Pucci multiprints.
But for most celeb stylistas, these crystalized motifs are just the right kick needed to vamp up an otherwise basic outfit of solid colors and classic dress (Basic in the indie style sense of the word.) Let’s see what I mean.
Although the Marc Jacobs leather tulip skirt is a bit va-va voom, the outfit still has a classic twist of black pencil skirt over white tank. Fortunately, Nicole kicks it up a notch with the silver headpiece.
Wondering if pretty Peaches took a cue from Nicole at the Preen show in NYC? The form fitting leggings and black blazer look work for basic, but sophisticated elegance and we like that she didn’t match her headband to her outfit (black instead of silver) and chose to pull it back more on her hair so that it wasn’t quite so eccentric. It simply worked!
Ever the fashionista, designer Charlotte Ronson topped her purple dress with a silver headband. Although we love the fact that Charlotte chose the dress in a hot color for Fall and the black buttons add some panache, we still think it’s a pretty basic look and the headwear adds some true glam!
