When I was younger, hair accessories were my thing. I had boxes of them, lovingly sorted into slides, clips, barrettes, bows and flowers. There wasn’t a day I went out without something clipped in, but somewhere between school, extra curriculars, and general growing up, I left them behind. As a rule I’m not the glitziest dresser – I don’t tend towards patterns, bright colours or embellishments, but I’ve been loving the recent trend towards the statement hair accessory.
They make even the simplest outfit look considered – whether I’m wearing a shirt or sweatshirt, a statement barrette slid into a ponytail makes it look like I’ve put in far more effort than I actually have. If you’re not ready to launch fully into the statement look, a subtle tortoiseshell slide looks chic, and I love adding a little colour with pink resin options. For evening I’ve been absolutely loving the pearly clips. Over-sized and a little whimsical, they add a dash of glamour without too much effort.
Will you be wearing hair accessories this summer?
