Age Is No Bar: Wearing Headbands After 40

Age Is No Bar: Wearing Headbands After 40

The right accessories are like icing on the fashion cake!

A gorgeous bag, an eclectic women’s turban headband or a sparkling pair of earrings add a dash of ‘oomph’ to your outfit – enhancing your style statement. The effect intensifies when you are approaching 40. The older women tend to put away cute hair clips, chunky neckpieces and a tinkling stash of bangles and bracelets. But, where does it say there’s something wrong in amping up your accessory game now and again?

As it’s said: age is just a number!

Today’s contemporary women are challenging time-worn traditions and vague norms. Fashion consciousness is prevailing amongst women of all ages. While teenagers are being hooked into neon colors and bohemian trends, matured women are sticking to the classics like pearls and sequins. An extensive assortment of stone-studded accessories and shoes clog the wardrobes of these women. Also, you would find a unique collection of hair accessories for women; they are trendy, voguish and accentuate the delicate beauty of matured women. Headbands are the best way to glam up your attire. They quickly transform you into a diva turning heads.





“Headbands can be fine at any age, but as a mature woman, I’d steer clear of flowers, bows, and sparkly little girl styles,” said a fashion stalwart on being asked about whether older women should flaunt headpieces. Here are a few things to keep in mind while adding exquisite headpieces to your style repertoire:

  • Less is more. As women grow with time, they prefer ‘going minimal’. No makeup look and minimum accessories become the order of the day. That’s why when you don that iconic headpiece, go low on other accessories. Forget oversized sunglasses or earrings.
  • For a sophisticated look, pick headbands that go with your hair color. Subtle color coordination will help you go a long way. Try muted shades of brown, mustard or grey. They help keep your look understated yet eye-catching.
  • If you are into eccentric colors and designs, we would recommend you to try peppy headbands but make sure you keep your outfit fairly simple and monotone. Experimenting bohemian looks after 40 is a little tricky.
  • For formal events, try pearl-embellished headbands or the sequined ones. They are effortlessly feminine, exquisitely crafted and versatile. They perfectly complement your elegance and help you look ethereal.
  • One advice: stay away from bows and extra funky ones! They aren’t age-appropriate.

On a concluding note, headbands are fun and quirky, no matter what age you are in. Just be sure they blend seamlessly with your hair, outfit and persona. Till then, keep shining ladies!
