Excuse Me, Your Bobby Pin is Showing…
Bobby pins are usually a lady’s best-kept secret in hiding a bad hair day or creating a sensational updo, but this Autumn these mundane metal clips are being given the limelight and worn as statement accessories.
Some things should always remain hidden: a bra strap, the branded elastic band on underwear and the tell-tale beads and clips on hair extensions – but this is one exception we think should be made.
The look didn’t quite take off last year after adorning models on catwalks around the world, but we’re predicting that the trend will be embraced this season after being spotted again on red carpets and runways across the globe.
Celebrities such as Kelly Osborne and Emily Blunt have been spotted rocking the trend on the red carpet and we’ve seen the look gracing the runways of Michael Kors and Rodarte this season.
Its your turn! There are a number of ways to play with the trend. These are our favourites:
1. Keep it clean: Keep it neat and simple by opting for a simple, single pin. Opt for a contrasting colour to your hair tone for subtle impact.
2. Make a statement: Match your outfit or lipstick with 2 or more colourful pins. Pastels or pop colours are a great way to make a statement. Mix up your colours or play with similar tones to add a bit of fun to your outfit.
3. Embellishment: Enamel, jewels and patterns transform boring pin into a fun accessory
