Classic, Ladylike Headbands Are Spring 2019’s Hottest Accessory


It’s finally time to replace our knit winter caps with spring’s nostalgic hair accessories. Headbands, specifically, will be 2019’s must-have topper, as seen on the runways of Prada, Miu Miu, and Simone Rocha. Over the years, headbands have crowned everyone from Olympians and royalty to flappers and ’60s fashion icons, and this season, in a departure from the recent trend of more sporty headband styles from the likes of Fendi and Gucci, hair accoutrements for spring take a more ladylike approach, complete with silk, crystals, beads, and studs. For those who prefer a more subtle approach to this straight-off-the-runway trend, a visit to Fivestory will do the trick—they’ve just launched their own in-house collection of covetable accessories, complete with a classic black, Jackie O-worthy headband. Shop the best of these on-trend headpieces, below.
