You know the feeling when you open your closet doors and sigh at the fact you have nothing to wear, even though your rails are likely full with delights? We all fall out of love with our existing wares from time to time, but that doesn't mean you should start frivolously spending. Sometimes all it takes is a small addition to your outfit to make even your oldest clothes feel fresh again. Well, we think we've found just the thing.
Over the last couple of weeks, we've clocked countless influencers and Fashion Month showgoers wearing an accessory that had previously been left on the sartorial back burner. As you've probably guessed, we're talking about hair scarves, which are fast becoming the essential extra amongst the style set. In fact, searches for them are up 157% on Pinterest, so it's no coincidence as far as we're concerned.
Thankfully, we're not talking about '00s-esque bandanas. Instead, those in the know are now opting to tie silk or twill-blend hair scarves around the base of their ponytails or buns akin to a grown-up scrunchie, and the outcome is impossibly pretty.
You might not think so, but hair scarves are multitasking heroes. Of course, you can wear them in your tresses as intended, but they also work hard to jazz up your trusty handbags. Simply tie one around the strap of yours, et voilà—an instant (and free) update. Or try wrapping one around your wrist and finish with a chunky bracelet over the top for a standout jewellery look.
