Louis Vuitton showcased them on the catwalk and Irish contemporary luxury brand Stable is currently stocking them – hairbands are the new IT item for right now. For less than the price of lunch you can refresh an outfit so it instantly says SS17 – that is the power of the hairband this season. Here’s how designers styled them on the runways and where you can find yours on the high street.
