After Prada's satin turbans and headbands made a big splash during the summer, headwear has made a comeback. However, hats can be a bit too hot and pretentious for everyday wear. Plus, you can't show off your fabulous haircut (assuming you have one). Try one of these hip headwear options to stay and look cool. Hairbands are a tried and tested option but one of my favourites is a variation of the style - which I call the 'forehead band'. Before you start to think I'm losing my mind, think again. What I mean is something slim and long like a long leather string or slender ribbon. Take a cue from Li (right) who wrapped a strip of skinny gold lame fabric across her forehead and over her hair, securing it at the back of her head. Another option is to wrap something like a leather string or ribbon across your forehead and under your hair, also securing it at the back of your head. If you pop over to Pottinger Street in Central, there are many stalls there that sell ribbon and leather string by the inch, as well as hair goodies such as elasticated ribbon hairbands that are an easy-to-wear option. A clever trick a stylist friend taught me, if you want funkier colours and materials with enough stretch to stay put, is to take a pair of tights and cut off the legs. Cut off the foot portion as well and voila you have a tubular piece of material that can also be tied like a headband. Try this out with cheap, funky stockings from the ladies' market in Jardine's Crescent, Causeway Bay. You can also personalise the material with embellishments such as feathers (huge for the autumn). Men can also sample this trend, albeit with caution. Drew (left) has pulled on a fabric headband across his forehead. His look is cool - but be careful. He has toed the line of looking cool because he has chosen a pale, neutral-coloured option that works. Anything too colourful or printed will fall into the 'What's Not Hot' category. Also, avoid anything that looks like a do-rag. It's always refreshing to see someone inject a little creativity and ingenuity into their look. Nickee (right) jazzed up her ensemble with two bows in her hair - one is a pale floral print and the other is neon green. Both are set with Victorian-inspired brooches which have been bought from Western Market in Sheung Wan and sewn on.
