Salty air, sun kissed hair
Endless summer, take me there”

The weather is warm and the sky is clear, atlas summer is here! Those who live in a coastal state will undoubtedly make their way to the beach – if they haven’t already that is. Whether you leave your beach blanket in the trunk of your car because you head to the beach every weekend, or you are excitedly planning ahead for the beach trip you have this summer, you should most definitely test out the waters with some of the super cute beach worthy hair accessories below!

Starfish Hairpins
These are perfect for the days when you want nothing other than to throw your hair in a messy bun, find your favorite pair of flip flops, and set your sights straight to the shore. When you crave the beach this badly, you probably aren’t too interested in how your makeup and hair look, but that’s no reason to skip these delicate hairpins! Not only will your inner mermaid be subtly on display, but you won’t have to repeatedly re-do your bun because the hairpins will hold everything in place.

Jeweled Barrettes
For those who are all about the bling, but chose to leave your glam accessories at home with the understanding (and maybe past experience?) that jewelry can leave some pretty strange tan lines you should absolutely get yourself some jeweled barrettes. You can use them to pull your hair out of your eyes, and you’ll be thrilled that you’re rocking your glam style at the beach!

Seashell Bobby Pins
No matter what your hair length or type, bobby pins always manage to make themselves useful. Why not accessorize your tresses with seashell accented bobby pins?! If you can’t find them at a local boutique or hair salon, you can easily DIY in less than five minutes! All you need to do is use a hot glue gun to adhere a tiny seashell (or a few) the end of a clean bobby pin. Just be careful not to glue it too close to the rounded edge, as the shells are more likely to fall off when they’re on that edge.

Floppy sun hats are not just cute, but they are totally in right now! If you are worried about the sun getting to your hair color, or if your just having a bad beach-hair day, grab a big floppy sun hat!

Minimalism Inspired Broach
Gilded inspired accessories are super hot this season. The simplicity of a bronze or brushed silver broach allows the accessories to match virtually anything. A cute way to wear this is by securing it slightly above your ponytail holder.

Cuff Ponytail Holder
Similar to a minimalist broach, cuff ponytail holders can be worked into any style, from preppy to boho. Simply pull your hair up into a ponytail. Then slip your hair through the cuff, and slide it all the way up until the accessory hides the elastic holding your ponytail in place.

Romantic Pony Bow
Perfect for a moonlit beach walk, a romantic ponytail bow is simply made by tying a long piece of ribbon around a pony or half pony.

Hats, Headscarves and Neckerchiefs

All winter long, you’ve probably been bundling up with scarves and hats to keep warm during the big chill. But now that the weather is rounding the corner toward warmer days, you may think that you’ll soon have to hang up your headwear. Not so. You can still wear hats and scarves throughout the spring and even the summer, depending on the material and the way you wear them. Here are some of the hottest trends in hats, headscarves and neckerchiefs for the next season that you may want to try:

Skinny Scarves
Long, skinny scarves are a fresh update on classic neckerchiefs, which have a slightly retro feel. Tie the scarf around your neck like you would a neckerchief, and let the tails hang down. Choose an extra long scarf to wear with a maxi dress or pant-suit for an on-trend look. Shorter scarves pair best with cocktail dresses.

Oversized Neckerchiefs
You can also opt to go big or go home. Oversized neckerchiefs are also on trend right now, all colors, textures and patterns. Choose a huge neckerchief to tie into a bow with a cute top and skirt. It will be an updated take on a retro style. Tie the bow tight or leave it hanging loose – this look is just coming into its own! This style looks great with a dress or skirt, but it can also be chic with a silk blouse and a pair of trousers or jeans.

Colorful Head Scarves
You aren’t limited to wearing scarves around your neck. Head scarves are on trend right now also. Roll up the scarf into a skinny band and tie it around your head near the crown. Tie it in a knot with loose ends at the top of your head for a Rosie the Riveter look, or knot it under your pony at the back for a more classic look. Head scarves are ideal when you want to create a retro look, but you can glam them up for a punk or rockabilly edge. Have fun with the different tying styles, colors and patterns to create a look that is all your own.

Bucket Hats
Bucket hats were big in the 90s — think Jennifer Aniston a la Friends. But they are back in a big way. You can wear bucket hats with casual looks, such as with a pair of boyfriend jeans or cargo pants and a slouchy shirt. However, you can also wear a bucket hat with a flowing dress or skirt. Choose hats in solid colors or in romantic, floral prints. Leave your hair loose under the hat to create a boho-chic look.

You may have to put away your chunky knits and woolen hats as the cooler temperatures begin to warm, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up your scarf and hat fashions. Try out one of these on-trend looks with your spring and summer wardrobe for a funky and fresh style. You can pick up some vintage finds that will be right in fashion now.

Lionesse Recommends Fashion Accessories for the Holidays

One of the best things about the holiday season, aside from giving and receiving gifts, and all of the wonderful food, is building a stockpile of accessories that complement the season. From scarves and hats, to purses and shoes, and of course jewelry – this is the best time of the year to accessorize!

Lionesse Flat Iron would love to give you some ideas on fashion accessories for the coming holidays so you can build up your accessory closet in time for all of the special days and occasions.

Watches

There are many holiday themed and seasonally themed watches available for the upcoming Holidays. From watches with faceplates adorned with beautifully colored leaves, to seasonally colored wristbands such as rusty orange, browns, gold, and reds, a watch is a great accessory to have – especially for those times when you lose your phone and need to check the time!

Scarves

Scarves are the absolute perfect go-to accessory, no matter the season. You can pick up a cute scarf and use it throughout the year if you get neutral colors that work well with different colored outfits. Opt for colors such as tan, brown, yellow, red, green, and even gold to look your best and accent any outfit.

Hats

This time of year, the hats that are in season can vary by location. For instance, winter hats with pom-poms are adorable, but might not work well if you live in Florida. Opt for seasonal, location appropriate hats that would accent your outfit and that you can wear more than once and for more than one occasion. Remember to buy pertaining to the season! Beach hats will not work, ladies! Try going for a cute beanie, or trapper hat, or even a cute floppy hat to set your outfits apart from the rest. Look for those rare types that are unlikely to be worn by others to really make a statement. Rare finds are always a girl’s best friend!

Jewelry

Jewelry can really say a lot about a person. If you’re in the market to buy real gold or silver, opt for necklaces with seasonally themed charms such as feathers, owls, or leaves. The same applies for charm bracelets and even for costume jewelry. If you want to add a pop of color by use of costume jewelry, go for ruby colors, emerald greens, or topaz colored stones. The same type of theme applies for rings and earrings. Big rings are still in, by the way, so don’t be afraid to adorn your fingers with some accessories. Your hands are one of the first things people will notice when wearing jewelry. Make it count!

 

Being Festive is Fun

Adding fashionable, cute accessories is one of Lionesse Flat Iron’s favorite things about the fall and winter season. Collecting a piece of jewelry here and a scarf there can really optimize your accessory collection, and you will undoubtedly accumulate quite a bit over time. Perhaps the style will work for the coming year, but perhaps not. If you decide you don’t want your jewelry or accessories any longer, think of creative ways to re-purpose old pieces of jewelry by upcycling them into items to be used for crafts or even donating the pieces to someone who could get some use out of them. Or, you could always give them to the kids to have a dress up tea party!

 

Whatever you choose to wear or do this holiday season, have fun with it!
