In case you haven't noticed, statement headbands are having a moment right now. Stars like Hilary Duff and Kate Middleton have endorsed the trend, proving that the bold accessory is here to stay. If you're loving it too, you'll be happy to know that bridal headbands also exist, and it's the perfect accessory to complete any wedding-related outfit—even your wedding dress. "A headband shines attention on the bride and frames her face," says designer Jennifer Behr. "It also creates a regal aura, and is the perfect confluence of tradition and modernity… A headband allows a bride to make her look totally her own. They can read a bit fashion-forward and modern, while still maintaining the tradition of wearing a bridal headpiece. We even love combining a headband with a veil for the wedding ceremony."

Not only does the accessory add an elegant touch, it serves as a way to personalize your wedding look. "Jewels and accessories elevate any outfit, and a headband is the ultimate accessory for your big day," says designer Lele Sadoughi. Wearing a headband can also help keep your hairstyle in place all day, from your ceremony to the after-after-party. Or, it can complete a bachelorette party or rehearsal dinner outfit. To make your bridal headband stand out, consider wearing it over a low bun or ponytail to let it shine. "A knotted headband looks very polished over sleek hair," Sadoughi advises. "A headband helps to keep it set all day."

For those who prefer relaxed hairstyles, Behr suggests allowing a headband to accent loose waves or a laid-back updo. "You can incorporate a headband into your look, regardless of which hairstyle you find most flattering," she says. "Headbands can definitely loan themselves to more 'undone' and romantic looks, or even different types of chignons."
