Blake Lively has been doing a cracking job of making the humble hairband an adult-friendly accessory for SS14.
While we’re all comfortable rocking a festival-friendly floral head garland at Glasto, the Alice band still remains slightly unchartered territory due to its strong connotations with our 7-year-old selves.
But thanks to Blake and faithful headband devotee Taylor Swift, this cutesy retro accessory is now getting some serious grown-up attention.
While former Gossip Girl actress Blake worked her thick gold Barbie band with a spangly sequin Michael Kors frock for a super girly red carpet look at the CFDAs, Taylor is often seen rocking her dainty headbands with ladylike tea dresses and preppy shirt-and-skirt combos.
Whichever way you go, we reckon it’s time to embrace the Alice band and get girly with your hair accessories.
