8 Headbands We're Loving

Our ultimate style-envy award goes to 12 Years a Slave Actress Lupita Nyong’o, who dazzled the red carpet at the Oscars last night. Parading in Prada, Lupita starred an elegant, elongated v neckline, floating to the floor in powder-blue pleats, synched in at the waist of her slim-lined figure. The icey-blue hue shone against her dark skin tone, looking absolutely ravishing.

Yet what really completed the look was the use of her subtle accessory. One that is rarely seen gracing its presents on the red carpet, and one that’s rarely seen past the age of 8…the headband.

Although Lupita won the best supporting actress, we think her crown should definitely win best supporting accessory. The Fred Leighton diamond and gold headband added that extra sparkle to her outfit, complimenting her finer jewellery.


This charming look got us all wanting in on the act, so here are my 8 favourite headbands of the moment:

1. The Black River Island crown (£25) is perfect for glamming up an evening look.

2. The Topshop flower band (£12.50) is great for a sophisticated, Gatsby-esque look.

3. Definitely one to save up for, or maybe just dream about, the Valentino nude studded headband (£135) can be worn with any outfit, a timeless piece.

4. Add some sparkle to your hair on a budget with this shimmering green, bow headband from Topshop (£6).

5. A statement bow with a pop of colour added to a delicate silver band, the Eugenia Kim headband (£235) - Let’s hope to find a Primark replica in the near future!

6. Gemmed headbands will make your hair look super pretty with a modern twist, both of which are from Topshop.

7. The orange hue band is £23.

8. And lastly, the pink diamante band is at a sale price of £17 reduced to £7, you can’t go wrong!
