Although for the past two winters, the alice band hairband has been a regular, it seems that the start of a headband trend could put a true end to it's reign. The first thing you need to know is that there may be a lot of confusion surrounding what to call it. But no matter what anyone else tries to tell you, it's a headband god dammit. Worn just below (but over) your hairline. Think the thin gold headband that Sienna wore with her pink Matthew Williamson dress, back whenever it was. But before you are put off my memories of the Sienna boho era, this is new, and free of gypsy skirt and gilet assosiations.
The look is sleek hair (blunt fringe or mid parting; whatever floats your boat) with maybe a little hint of Cory K straggle to it (but hey, the key is sleek!), with a thin metallic band worn either just below your hairline, or stretched around the crown of your head. Worn with a floral tee dress, battered trainers (from that party in a field last summer) and a cable knit cardigan. Or for a more wintery look, with a tux jacket, opaques and french stretchy mini (I hate to say it, but like the skirt that Whitney wore to her interview in The Hills) OK, OK, maybe things are veering a little into the (don't say it, don't say it!...) boho direction, but this is fresh boho. This is Kennedy LA boho, minus the posers and grease. This is Olsen-esque. This maybe even french vogue intern... oooh.
