Trending in Fashion: The Statement Headband
If the previously discussed princess-esque headchains were a little out of your comfort zone but you still want to play with a headpiece trend this fall, you need to go out and get yourself a statement headband.
Dolce and Gabana really hit it out of the park in their fall 2012 show when they put gloriously baubled headbands on model's heads (yes, gloriously baubled is a thing). The baroque influence with pearls, gold details and just the right amount of gaudiness and extravagance. Chanel pulled a bit of headband and a bit of headchain together to come up with their strings of pearls and jewels wrapped around the models' hair.
Celebrities have recently taken the headpiece trend to the red carpet as well. Singer Lana Del Rey is a fan of the statement floral crowns. Kristen Dunst pulls off a very feminine and pretty up do with jewels and Keira Knightly does a bit of both with a boho milkmaid braid.
I adore this look. I think it's so pretty and sweet. Plus, it's a quick way to give an extra something to a messy bun or otherwise plain up do. I'm not totally convinced it can be pulled off in everyday life. I found a few options online that look great in theory, but again, I don't know if I have the face or hair to work them. I actually own a very large flower headband that I've always been too nervous to bust out but I'm considering it now!

I LOVE headbands!! They make a messy updo look dressy and feminine! Can't wait to get some of these!
Headbands look fun. But am not sure if it would suit me. Maybe I should try it sometimes and see how it goes.
I like # 1 and #4.They look wearable for everyday use.
really liked #3 until i saw how much it was...on sale o_o
I go for weeks without headbands and then I get back into them. I love these and I can see myself spending more money on headbands again
I love wearing headbands and can't wait to get some of these ornate ones.
I love headbands! I wear them everyday. Usually they are to hold up my bangs when my hair is in a pony, but sometimes I wear more "fashion" ones for a night out. Love them!
I used to wear headbands a lot, they are an easy way to deal with frizz. Nowadays I have kind of strayed away because they tend to look a bit childish in my opinion. While most of these don't look childish, they still just aren't my style, though I do kind of like #4 in your set.
