I feel it in my fingers, I feel it in my toes. 4 From Prada over Miu Miu to Louis Vuitton: major brands are going nuts about tiaras, hair brooches (does that even exist?) and girly, glittery hair slides. And, as you might have guessed, it is a trend not too easy to style. I mean: who doesn’t automatically associate tiara with hen parties, brooches with our elegant 90-year old great-aunts and hair slides with growing up in the 90s?
To help you mastering this tightrope walk between ridiculous and extremely fashionable, here are 4 indispensable rules to wearing hair jewelry:
- Keep it simple: when wearing hair jewelry, simplicity is key. Refrain from any other kind of jewelry and save those 15 cm high, glitter Louboutin pumps for another occasion. As Saint Laurent did for SS16, pairing a glitter princess tiara with slip dresses, wellies and a wide coat in menswear fabric is not only fashionable but radiates real coolness.
- Diamonds let you sparkle – by night: as already mentioned lately, it is an absolute no-go to show off sparkly stones by day – real or false doesn’t matter. There are other options for the day: cloth, plastic, feathers, whatever really. Just keep bragging around for the night!
- Treat yo’ hair: all eyes are fixed on your mane, so make sure it’s a freshly washed, shiny eye-catcher rather than an unbrushed breeding place (please excuse the picture).
- Shine bright like a diamond and smile! Generally, there’s no better way of wearing jewelry than with a smile. When daring – in fashion and anywhere else – there will always be haters. Smile and stay above such unnecessary malevolence. It’s not worth it!
And last but not least, check out the gallery to see examples of correctly-worn hair jewelry. Because: it can be incredibly cool!
