We tend to look fashionable through rosy, unpleasant little sunglasses. The spread of influencers, coupled with the addictiveness of browsing covered by the intoxicating immediacy of fast fashion, means that we are consuming trends faster than ever. We participate before common sense kicks in. We are ready to buy dubious shoes, drop over the impractical bags, and wear things blindly just for a worthy flexibility, only to shrink in the months that follow. Rarely do we think "will I regret in ten years?"
The affirmative answer should not stop you from experimenting because it is the funny part of partial fashion. We are proudly and unashamedly the Felt Cute Might Delete Later generation. Today's OOTD selfies are just the TBT's of tomorrow, but there is one unavoidable accessory trend that just doesn't stop. We seem to have reached maximum capacity, yet the headbands refuse to die.
The world was first exposed to the puffy toppers on Prada's runway in the spring of 2019. As soon as the runway began, editors knew that we would witness the rise of a trend. That summer, Prada headbands sold out everywhere, and similar styles spread like wildfire. We have seen stuffed headbands in every iteration: cut in velvet, rolled up in gems, and at such heights high, we question gravity.
Unlike the jerk around Ashley Williams crystal bars or other short-lived trends, the padded headbands did not complete the predictable trajectory of fashionable fashion moments, as outlined below.
Step 1: Runway premiere
Step: Effective: You can buy it at any quick fashion decor
Step 3: Your mother is coming
Step 4: Fini.
Prada's show is in September 2018 with first place, which is in fashion for about seven decades. By now, it would have had to die a long, painful death, and yet it would only get stronger. Just when we thought it was reaching a climax, Chanel showed off their Metiers de Arts runway, ripped with Gigi Hadid, a Sofia Coppola design, and the decomposing headband trend. So it lives on.
The thing is, I get their appeal. I tried it, and I immediately felt like a royal widow. The millions of photos I took stand in a Zara with a bloated snake on my head Would looks good on my grid. I understand how stuffed headbands make you feel, but as my therapist constantly reminds me: feelings are not facts. I have to dig deep and find the spiritual strength to remove it physically and psychologically from my life. It is a struggle that perhaps speaks more to my complicated relationship with a popular trend. Am I just a hypocrite who brings something down to uplift myself?
Nah. Like, I understand: wearing crowns is really fun. As a blind supporter of Grandpa Slacks and infantilizing myself in baby clothes, I understand the fleeting and fun nature of style greed. There is, however, a warning: it must feel natural for the wearer and stuffed headbands rarely look & # 39; cold & # 39 ;. Ballowns have an inborn cold direction. Or maybe it's an I thing. (It's not. I asked about four people and they didn't approve of it either.) I have an aversion to things that literally give me a headache, I struggle with it being glorified Bumpit is, and I'm uncomfortable with, the association with Tudor headscarves, and we all know what happened to Anne Boleyn. However, I am naturally in the minority as the trend begins to rise with or without me. I want you to be satisfied with your hair accessories. I'm just going to choose from this one.
But … you know how I am know without a doubt that there is something inherently wrong with stuffed headbands? Rihanna has never worn one. Thank you for coming to my TED talk.
