I’m not sure if I genuinely love padded hairbands or if the fact that I’m rewatching Gossip Girl is clouding my judgement. Either way, I really love wearing them and think they’ll be just as much of a style staple in the winter as they have been all summer. Started by Prada a year ago, the padded hairband has exploded into something big, just like slogan hair clips. Hair accessories have been a major theme for the last four seasons and as that doesn’t set to change anytime soon, they make for a good investment.
Like most of the hats I post on Instagram, the version I’m wearing here was made by my friend and insanely talented milliner Andrea. She’s created a few versions for winter in lighter satins but also some tartan versions with studs that are perfect with a chunky knit jumper. She can also make bespoke headbands in literally any fabric if you’re looking for something different.
I paired mine with some loose waves but I saw blogger Leonie Hanne wearing hers with a sleek bun and sunnies. They’d also look amazing with a low pony that’s sleek on top with loads of volume through the lengths, I definitely need to try that for a picture…
