IZABELLA RUE WEDGES
I usually love to accessorize my outfits with shoes, bags, jewels, and let’s not forget my signature bold lip, but I’ve recently found myself to be totally obsessed with a new accessory- the headwrap. The look is so bomb, stylish and afrocentric. It takes your style to the next level. The first time I tried wearing a headwrap, I was still relaxed and having a bad hair day. It made me look presentable enough to leave the house and get on with my day. Once I started wearing my natural hair I found that headwraps were perfect for those days when I needed to wash my hair, or when my twists were still wet and not ready to take apart. I then started incorporating headwraps into my outfit planning as I realized how much I loved the look.

If prints are a little too much for you, start off with a headwrap in a neutral solid color. Pair it with oversized sunnies for a retro glam look. Oh, and don’t forget the oversized hoops. Once you’re comfortable wearing solid colors, incorporate prints and coordinate your headwraps with your lipstick for a super chic look. You’ll fall in love and want to wear headwraps all the time. Don’t fret as the look works all year round.

You can turn any scarf into a headwrap as long as it’s at least 2 yards (72″ long.) That includes all of those scarves and wraps that you probably already have laying around the house and never thought about using as a hair accessory. You can even get creative and make your own. Just go to the fabric store and pick out material in fun prints, in a 100% cotton or cotton blend. Make sure you get at least 2 yards, and more if you’d like a bigger knot. I’ll try to do a headwrap tutorial for you guys soon.
