Accessories are always a crucial part of any amazing outfit in my humble opinion. They can sometimes be the difference between just your average everyday look and Lordy, she looks amazing and confident!
I could talk FORVER about different accessories (which 100% include jackets and shoes in my book) and the power they can have to transform your style, but for this blog, I just wanted to focus on one – the headscarf.
Zara headscarf (last season) | Moolk Clothing “Mia” dress (nursing friendly) $79 | Kmart slides (still in store)
This little number has slowly been working its way into mainstream style for a few seasons now, but prepare for a head wrap/scarf/tie explosion this autumn/winter.
Mainly, I just love them because they are great at hiding dirty hair haha (that and copious amounts of dry shampoo).
I wear my headscarves quite a bit when I just want my outfit to feel a little extra, a little more standout than usual.
But I know a few people have already asked how to wear them so here are my little pieces of advice on how to rock the headscarf as part of your everyday style.
This is the way I usually rock my headscarf. Often my hair has some wave in it, and had added volume and texture thanks to a rich helping of texture powder and dry shampoo.
I just pull the headscarf down over my hair, and make sure the fabric is covering my hairline.
Top knot style.
Again, dry shampoo is my friend here. A good amount is added, then I whip my hair up in a messy top knot (don’t worry, it usually takes me three goes as well) and then I add the headscarf, again, around the hairline.
I love adding a bright colour when I wear it this way. It adds an extra statement next to your face.
Tie it up.
For this style, you can use any old scarf (the smaller the better though), the one I”m using is just a little square from Rubi shoes.
I’ve folded it in half diagonally (into a triangle), twisted it on itself, then tied it around my pony. I’ve knotted it at the top of the pony to create that extra fall down the sides.
Again, it just adds a little extra fun and colour to any look.
I just love the way a little addition like this can add another level to your look, and for me it just gives me that extra boost of confidence, especially if I’m heading into an important meeting or want to really play the “stylist” look up.
So how to choose what colours/prints?
Go with your first instinct is my best tip. If you love print, then you’ll be sure to wear it. I also choose a bold block colour (the magenta one) to wear when I feel like making an extra-bold statement.
You know me, I love a bit of print on print – and I usually just make sure there are similar colours when I’m clashing prints together (like the floral pink headscarf and the galah print dress).
Here are a few of my faves to get you started.
SHOP THE HEADBANDS: 1. Top Knot Girl “Golden Rainbow” print $18 & “plum leopard print” headband $20 (available in newborn to adult sizes) | 2. Gerty Brown pink olive palm girlband $15 | 3.
