The Headband Trend You'll Either Love or Hate
A simple flip of this ubiquitous accessory turns it into high-tech hardware with a stylish edge
When we first spotted the look at Balenciaga's spring 2013 ready-to-wear show, we weren't quite sure what to make of it. Headbands worn around the back of the head? On first glimpse, it felt like an effect that was trying too hard. Also, it reminded us a lot of those behind-the-head headphones that had a moment about a decade ago.
But then, we started seeing it around, and we kind of liked it. Chanel not only embraced but one-upped the trend by giving it a structured and chic element that's completely wearable. Then we started seeing the behind-the-head headbands on risk-taking celebs and fashion bloggers, and we couldn't help but admire their style.
It's a simple twist on a classic look -- with a bit of a modern edge. We haven't exactly tried it out yet, but we're not saying we won't, either.
