When it comes to accessories, there is one niche trend that has been utterly unavoidable in 2018: hair clips. This hair-clip trend started at Simone Rocha last season, with the designer's pearl-and-crystal slim slides that have become Alexa Chung's new favourite accessory. But this season, we saw them everywhere—from Rejina Pyo to Ashish, and the high street very quickly caught on.
If you can't justify spending £300 on a Gucci hair clip, there's one high-street place in particular that has very strong hair game: Accessorize. (I know lots of fashion editors who have been buying their barrettes from here.) The best thing is that the store's clips are all under £10, meaning you can stack up those clips. This party season, we think the hair-clip trend will really come into its own, as a pearl or crystal barrette makes any outfit look a little more festive.
Style Note: We love how this crystal-embellished Gucci slide is placed on the top of a plait.
