SoCal Fashion Column: Headbands are back in style

WOS Wrestling commentator and MK fashionista SoCal Val talks about an accessory that’s a perfect finishing touch for your outfit…

Spring has sprung, fashionistas!

Well… sort of. After living in Milton Keynes for a couple years now I’ve found English weather to be a bit unpredictable. Inconsistent weather is also a little troublesome when trying to stay on top of seasonal trends.

But here’s my solution: keep it timeless! I recently read a quote from Julia Roberts that says trends are “a game I don’t have time to play” and I couldn’t agree more.

When you implement more sophisticated, timeless pieces into your wardrobe you have the freedom to wear whatever
you want, whenever you want!

But as the temperature rises here in beautiful MK it’s fun to add a few shocking pops of stark white into your ensemble and/or perhaps a punchy orange-y red hue insouciantly thrown here and there. And why not add a classic polka dot print for good measure?

In styling the outfit shown here I decided that a wrap style headband was the perfect finishing touch. This particular style of headband, and even more elaborate versions are actually VERY on trend, believe it or not!

Remember when headbands were a fashion no-no? Well they’re back and can be seen on fashionistas worldwide as a street style staple.

I’ve included a photo of a few of my favorite affordable styles that are available right now from my beloved Primark. Leopard should be treated as a neutral and will match just about everything, a cheerful yellow will perk up any outfit and the red floral style I chose would be adorable with a messy updo and oversized sunglasses.

The perfect brunch look! These headbands start at just £2 and up so I encourage to grab all three and start your
very own headband drawer now. You’ll thank me later.

Speaking of Primark, if you need to find me just go to the centre:mk and peruse the aisles of the brand new threestorey Primark that opened just a few weeks ago!

It is my style haven and my happy place! I cannot express how much I love their selection and inexpensive prices.

After all, style is something you have… not something you can buy (but if you could, you’d certainly get the best deal at Primark).

Until next time, happy spring to you! Embrace headbands to make this season your most stylish yet.
