These Hair Accessories Will Make Any Wedding Outfit Look So Much Better

Hair accessories, like floral garments, have cemented their place within the occasionwear realm. Remember the plush-velvet-headband trend in 2019? Or the oversized pearl hair clip? They’ve now firmly settled into the wedding guest market.

Once your wedding outfit is finalised, it’s all about the finer details, and hair accessories work well to add intrigue and exuberance. The small (albeit mighty) accessory has the power to pull an outfit together. Long gone are the days when fascinators were the singular accessory choice for weddings. Now there’s something for all, whether you’re looking for an accessory to integrate into your hairstyle or you want something to be the star feature.

Wedding guest hair accessories:



Unlike many other styles of dressing, occasionwear is overtly intentional. You’ll want the light to beckon each jewelled shimmer and headwear to be over-pronounced and bold. If you’re fashioning a braided style, you may opt for clips, and if your style is free-flowing, pinned tresses always look elegant on long and short hair. This is the time to go all out, so wear a floral garland or a padded crown.

There’s no better way to prettify an outfit (not that wedding guest attire much needs prettifying), but it’s all in the subtle but deliberate details. Keep scrolling for some beautiful hair accessories.
