4 ways to dress up your 'do
We’ve seen some great trends emerge from the Fashion Week catwalks lately, but the one I’m particularly obsessed with and can be be easily incorporated into any look, especially during the cooler autumn and winter weather months is leather. After Gucci, Saint Laurent and Louis Vuitton sent models down the runway sporting leather mini-skirts, trapeze dresses and patent Mary-Janes we’ve been hooked. Chic, versatile and unexpected, the leather-look has the added bonus of being simple to master.
So what’s the easiest way to get on-trend with leather without having to spend a fortune or resembling Morpheus from the Matrix? With accessories, of course! The Lady Jayne Minimalistic Leather hair accessories range is perfect for recreating your favourite looks from the catwalk, without going overboard. Because after all, accessories are what really make an outfit...
Ignore any preconceived ideas you have about headbands, because they’re back in a big, big way. Valentino, Victoria Beckham and Proenza Schouler are just a few of the designers leading the way in leather headbands, proving this hair accessory is not just a one hit wonder.
Recreate the look: Whether your hair is up or down, add a touch of glam with the Lady Jayne Minimalistic Leather Headband. Its textured leather detailing makes it seriously versatile hair accessory that can be worn day or night. If you’re going for an updo, team the headband with an elastic from the Lady Jayne Minimalistic Leather Hair Elastic Ball for extra leathery goodness.
Don’t be fooled - these aren’t just reserved for the little ones. Bows can be worn - stylishly - by adults. From sweet and girlie to uber sultry, there are a few types of bows to choose from - and they’re perfect for everyday wear. If you need convincing, look no further than fashion icons Brigitte Bardot, Sarah Jessica Parker and Alexa Chung, and big names like Lanvin, Louis Vuitton and Dior. This year, Betsy Johnson put a retro spin on the trend, Moschino decorated their models with printed, oversized bows and Giles finished off imperfect plaits with cute bowties.
Recreate the look: We love the subtle bows spotted at Giles. Copy this look by tying Lady Jayne Minimalistic Leather Hair Bows to the bottom of your plait, or give your ponytail a schoolgirl twist - the choice is yours!
#3 BOBBY SLIDES
It’s the little details that matter, and Taoray Wang and Cacharel left no doubt about that with their use of bright bobby pins. Once used to expertly (and stealthily) hold hair in place, bobby pins now have a starring role. Stick to popping them in side-swept styles, and as for colour? Let the occasion be your guide.
Recreate the look: For a punchier take on things, grab the Lady Jayne Minimalistic Leather Bobby Slides and clip your hair into a style that’s both chic and practical. What’s better than that?
#4 PONY CUFF
Ever since Dries Van Noten, Jason Wu and Derek Lam put sweeping locks into low-slung ponytails with leather cuffs, we’ve been waiting for the cooler days to settle in so we can do this to our own hair.
Recreate the look: Forget the simple pony. Make a sleek, head-turning statement with the Lady Jayne Minimalistic Leather Semi Pony Cuff and say hello to on-trend tresses!
