 Fashion hair accessories latest-fashion-hair-accessories-fall-winter-2017-fw17-ready-to-wear-wearable-unwearableHey elegant! Life is too short to have boring hair and its accessories! Hair accessories are the best things to own to make a statement at a glance. For busy women, it’s hard to find time to make hairstyles and adorn them with accessories.

There are a few hair accessories that can be transformed from runway to real life whereas a few are just too extreme and best left to the runways! Just like in the case of hair accessories from Fall Winter 2017 collections, I found a few that were unwearable and out-of-box! It’s hard to imagine myself wearing one of them and scare people at home and work! Good job designers, but we are not wearing them!

So, let’s check out the fashion hair accessories that are fashionable and not so fashionable!

Wearable Fashion Hair Accessories from Fall Winter 2017 Collections

1. Headbands

Headbands aren’t a new thing. We have been seeing them since our granny’s age, but they are still trendy and give a perfect finishing look to the hairstyle. In Fall Winter 2017 collections, we saw many designers like Chanel, Elie Saab, Altuzarra, etc. just throwing a hair band to complete the look. Not a new thing but you can go for the metallic and studded ones!

2. Hair Ties

Oscar de la Renta’s creative designers Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia were so busy in designing the outfits that they couldn’t find time to work on the hair accessories and ended up with hair ties! So, ladies, here is the utmost wearable fashion accessory of the season – the plain, skinny hair tie!

Unwearable Fashion Hair Accessories

Designers went bold this season with not just the dresses but hair accessories, too! From quirky fascinators to statement ones, we saw many unwearable hair accessories in Fall Winter 2017 collections.

1. Head Cages

Wondering what a head cage is? Ask Maison Margiela! In their Fall 2017 collection the hair accessories were cheeky and a big mess! It indeed took me a long time to know just the names of hair accessories worn by the models. It’s practically not possible to wear these accessories on the streets and they are just runway specific. Creative, sure, but not wearable!

2. Fascinators

Floral, feathered and knitted fascinators are common but have you seen someone wearing a candelabra fascinator? Yes, a fascinator with decorative lights is what we saw in Moschino FW 2017 collection. Thankfully the bulbs weren’t glowing 😉 . Also, the robot shaped novelty fascinator in Dolce & Gabbana collection was quite funny. I’d wear it! But only on Halloween or for a selfie!

3. Hats

It’s Fall/Winter collection and of course, we expect hats but not like the ones we spotted in Gucci, Maison Marigela and Moschino. Hats serve a specific purpose and I don’t see the hats in these collections serving it. We saw hats with cut-outs and hats just as show-pieces on the head. What am I going to do with a hat that won’t make me feel warm? Strange, right? Yup! I thought so!

So, are you looking to make a statement with the crazy ones or play it safe with the wearable ones! Do let us know by tweeting @shilpa1ahuja.
