Trending: The Velvet Headband

Dress: House of Lancry | Headband: Zara (Out of StockSimilar) | Shoes: Barney’s New York | Curling Iron: Babybliss 1.5 inch barrel

If you haven’t already picked up on it, the #1 trend to have right now is a chic black headband. Mark my words, the Jennifer Behr headband will be this year’s Cult Gaia bag…. all of the A-List bloggers have it, and renditions of this sleek staple are already trickling their way down to high streets. Its 100% a Blair Waldorf statement, but I’m all for a little upper east side vibe…. Just insert the steps of the met!

It’s a nice change of pace if you’re like me and tend to always go for the same hairstyle. I do my 1.5 inch barrel usual curls (clamp half way, curl away from the face, and roll up). Spritz in a very generous amount of Oribe texture spray, slip the velvet headband on, and pull/fluff just the right amount of front pieces out. The hair in the front keeps the vibe chic > cutesy, and these days the bigger the better when it comes to headband volume.

This one’s soldout from Zara, but I linked quite a few options below— I’ve already worn it a handful of times — To Claridge’s tea with a black top and tweed skirt, during my family Christmas with a sweater dress, and OTK boots. One of my favorite ways I’ve styled it is with this House of Lancry Dress. Minus the Barney’s platforms, I felt very Kate Middleton…. The ultimate leading trendsetter who always knows how to wear a headband.
