The Duchess of Cambridge is bringing back the headband

1337

The Duchess of Cambridge has a new style signature to add to her repertoire: the headband. A Sloane staple in the Eighties (the Duchess of York was a particularly big fan), the accessory has had a fashion comeback in recent years, with Dolce & Gabbana in particular championing the retro hair piece.

Kate first started wearing them in earnest following the birth of Prince Louis in April last year, most notably at his christening, when she wore an elegant cream band with floral embellishment: a kind of hat-fascinator-headband hybrid.

Since then, she has worn them on several occasions. She chose a cornflower blue piece by milliner Juliette Botterill for the wedding of her friend Sophie Carter to Robert Snuggs in Norfolk last September; a thick emerald velvet design by Jane Taylor to match her Catherine Walker coat dress at the Armistice Service at Westminster Abbey in November; and a two-tone pink Halo band by Jane Taylor for Christmas at Sandringham.

Her penchant for the accessory shows no sign of abating in 2019, either, having already worn one for the New Year’s church appearance at Sandringham – this time a cerulean blue by – you’ve guessed it – Jane Taylor. As an alternative to the old-fashioned fascinator, we’re expecting to see more chic headbands on Kate at weddings, the races and other royal occasions this year.
