You should wear a headband too.

Lately, I realized how much accessories have became necessary to fashion in general. You can wear the most stylish chino pants or the most amazing flowered dress it will never look that good if you do not accessorize it. Of course you think of earings, necklaces, bracelets…

Well me, what comes immediately to my mind is headbands. Once upon a time, it was the number one accessorie for hippies, but that was the sixties. By now, you cannot put a toe on the sidewalk without seeing a fashionista wearing a headband. It is not suprising then if even Mischa Barton recently launched her own headband line.

Celebrities such as Paris Hilton, Keira Knightley, Natalie Portman, Mary Olsen, Nicole Richie, Jessica Alba, Eva Longoria and many others are wearing it on a daily life basis as well as on the red carpet or to the most hyped parties. This is what Frenchies call “Hippie Chic” and this is how women from all over the globe want to look like: glamorous and stylish with a simple item.

I personnally bought my first one in New York City in the famous Henri Bendel Shop (this is all about Gossip Girl…) where the saleswomen taught me how to wear it: above your fronthead, with or without plaits, or traditionnally “It all looks amazing anyway”.

Of course Bendel’ headbands aren’t truly affordable, luckily every ready-to-wear shops such as Topshop, New Look, Zara, Mango… became aware, just like me, of the necessity of having it in their wardrobe, so they followed the wave… Just as the most famous celebrities, and the most world-renowned fashion designers.

So, girls, you better surf on it as well !
