Would they Wear it in Wapping? :Part Deux

ZIG ZAG HAIRBANDS

Do you remember these? Of course you do! Following Dior’s A/W ’09 lead with the modest kirby grip used as a fully flegged hair decoration, the lowly zig zag hairband is now experiencing a revival this season courtesy of YSL. Pick up a set of 2 for a mere 98p in Primark and wear them both at once a la Stefano Pilati. A cheap and chic wardrobe update.

GREY HAIR

Granny, a style icon? Yes you are hearing me correctly. Sunday Times Style and Pixie Geldof have jumped on the grey wagon (excuse the pun) already. Seen a-plenty at the spring/ summer ’10 shows by Giles, Rue Du Mail and with Sykes using actual glam grannies as models.

Improvise with lashings of talc or dry shampoo for those not brave enough for the dye job. My tip for next season? That’ll probably be the purple rinse, at this rate.

GRANNY BAGS

Unlikely Style Icon: Mary Poppins

The beloved carpet bag is back. With a nod to Mary Poppins the first time around, the vintage look embroidered tapestry framed bag was seen on the runway at Fendi this season. Head to vintage stores to get in on the act.

Now repeat after me: supercalafradjalistic…
