Fashion Focus: Sleek & Chic Headbands

While necklaces, earrings and bracelets all have their place in my collection, it’s the headband that’s hands down become my favorite accessory over the years. Just how much do I love these stylish and functional pieces? So much that you might typically find me sporting one no matter what I'm up to. 

For instance, I just love a headband while enjoying a summer's afternoon of wine tasting...


Or admiring the fall foliage in DC's Rock Creek Park...


Or taking in the sights and sounds of a peaceful Caribbean butterfly farm... 


Or posing for springtime engagement photos at the Old Town waterfront...

...or partaking in countless other activities I could easily include but won't, since I'm sure you get the picture! All in all, I've got headbands at the ready in tons of different textures and fabrics, each one a unique and welcome touch to not only help keep my long hair out of my face, but also add a little something extra to my look. And while my styles are undoubtedly pretty casual, I'd love to someday rock a more formal band just like the lovely picks seen at last weekend's Golden Globes.

What's your signature accessory, and what did you think of the stars' sleek and chic headbands?

  1. I like the headband look but can't really seem to pull it off myself. I rarely wear my hair pulled back, so maybe it has something to do with that. Michelle Williams looked amazing at the Globes!

  4. I love headbands too, although sometimes they give me headaches!

    My favorite accessory is earrings though, I just feel naked going out without at least earrings dangling from my ears!

  5. I love headbands, although I can never make them stay in place. They always slip off. What is your secret?

    My favorite accessory is my wedding ring/engagement ring, but second to that, I love a nice pair of earrings. A versatile enough pair will go with everything.

  6. I do love a good headband, I use really thin ones and sometimes I have to be careful because they start to hurt my head..but I agree..they can jazz up any outfit!

  8. My signature accessory is probably a scarf. My mom has taught me many ways on how to tie them and how to fashion them :) I should get into headbands as I do have a lot of them..
