With Spring racing carnival fast approaching, its time to flick through the magazines, google the latest trends and work out YOUR “it” look for the season.

Fascinators may be present but are a risk in a year when we really don't know what we are going to be able to attend and Fashion Weeks and catwalks are telling us that Headbands are again the number 1 accessory. Pearl, rhinestone & sparkly hairpins, Headbands and Hats are versatile enough for a race lunch at home, a garden party or to wear to the pool or beach.

1. The Embellished Headband

2. Dainty Hair Jewellry

In 2021, there is a decided focus on dainty hair jewellery and pearls, rhinestones and gems. For both headbands and bobby pins, it’s all about layering. Bobby pins are more elegant, dainty grips, perfectly styled in groups and dainty headbands are often layered one behind the other. Halo versions and Tiaras also feature. Don't be afraid to style something ornate with more understated simple varieties. Examples below with our full range on our website
