Spring 2014 Must-Have Accessories

Dear Luminaries,

It’s about time we stop hiding our hair underneath hats and scarves considering spring is amidst us. And while we put away the winter accessories let’s pull out a few replacements. Warmer weather doesn’t necessarily mean brighter colors because let’s face it, for some (like us!), neutrals are the bread and butter to our wardrobe, but it definitely means that there are more options! Here’s a list of our must-have spring hair accessories and why we chose each one:

Batik Chic Headscarf— $48

Accessories #1This headscarf made our top list because it’s a perfect transitional piece for the unexpected weather between winter and spring. The piece can be styled in multiple ways. It can either be tied across the hairline to create a bohemian flair or wrapped around the middle portion of the head similar to a traditional headband. Tying the extra fabric of the scarf into a bow at the nape of the neck also provides a classic style with an edge. Find the Batik Chic Headscarf here.

 


Accessory #2Missoni Zigzag Knit Headband— $95

The pattern of the Missoni headband is to say the least elegant. The lightweight fabric in addition to the easy tie strings make it an ideal spring accessory for the sunny days that feel like summer. The flirty colors can make any outfit look and feel effortless and not to mention accentuate the tan that’s in progress.

 

Solid Vintage Hair Tie Set— $36 

Accessory #3

Let’s not forget about the basics. Humidity returns in spring and sometimes the easiest solution is to throw your hair into a quick ponytail or braid. Hair ties are one of the most heavily used accessories, yet up to this point the least stylish. But these hair ties stand out because of their unique color, fabric texture, and non-gripping material. They also function as bracelets for when you need one on the go. Find the full hair tie set here.

 

Mini Couture Jaw, Paisley Punch— $18Accessory #4

The quirky design of these hair clips make them one of the most                    unique accessories we’ve included in our spring must-haves. The clips can be used for all different types of up-dos as well as just pulling back a few loose strands that never seem to stay put. The lighthearted patterns embody a timelessness and vintage undertone that we love!

 

Mrs. President & Co. Beauty S Barrette— $48  #9

Barrettes are a way to pull back layers. This season try going asymmetrical. The shape of the Mrs. President & Co. Barrette is sleek and strays away from the common rectangular barrettes we’re accustomed to seeing. It’s bound to receive compliments or at least a few double takes while walking through the city because everyone loves an original twist to a classic.

 

 Silk Head WrapL. Erickson Silk Head Wrap— $40

 This head wrap gives every shopper exactly what they want—options. The        accessory comes in seventeen different colors ranging from bright spring tones to the neutrals we can’t bare to give up. The material is soft and won’t give you a headache after a long day   out. Find the L. Erickson Silk Head Wrap here.

 

Classic Rectangle Barrette, Itsy Daisy— $18

#7

This is the second barrette included in our spring must-haves because the accessory can accomplish a wide range of styles. Unlike the sleek style of the Mrs. President & Co. Beauty S Barrette, this classic rectangular barrette is differentiated by its simple and bright flower patterns. The pieces are an easy way to pull back the hair and keep it secure throughout a full workday.

 

Love,

Parlor
