Match the Look- Accessories: ribbons vs feathers

  • v/s
Ribbons or feathers? What would it be?

Sometimes it's all down to the little extras we use to give our look a bit of oomph. We love a good accessory to jazz things up or simply pull a look together. So which is your accessory of choice?

Rockin' Ribbons


The style: Ribbons are back. Had this classic little detail ever really left? Ribbons are chic, neat and slim this season, giving your look a preppy vibe while keeping seriously on trend. Think velvet, stream-lined and structured. As seen by our street style trend spotter at the Rochas FW 17/18 show in Paris.


The hairstyle: Adaptable to any style – add detail to a ponytail or bun, or even tie around a side-parting for a chic Alice band look.


What the editors say: Fix to a clip, or simply tie around a tail, the key is to keep the width to a minimum to retain the elegance and add style to any do.

Funky Feathers


The style: A gentle nod to Princess Pocahontas, feathers can be just as smart and stylish as a velvet ribbon but their very nature gives them a boho, wild vibe. We love feathers because they are so versatile and come in a wide array of shades, patterns and styles.


The hairstyle: The feather is probably one of the easiest accessories to pull off! Pop in anywhere to add an unexpected twist to your look. Jauntily on the side or as an enhancement to a clip or ponytail – either way, it works.


What the editors say: Feathers rock. Try bright colors for a real statement, or a discreet plume for a more sophisticated result. The main way to nail this look is to keep hair healthy and glossy, so do a little light work to keep those locks luscious with L'Oréal Pro Fiber Recovering masque.

What's your fall favourite? The saloon inspired cowgirl ribbon or the feathered headdress?
