Ditch the fascinator and channel Blair Waldorf this Spring Racing Carnival by embracing the years biggest accessory: The Headband. From pearl-encrusted slim-lined headbands to padded crown-like versions, finding the perfect headwear has never been so much fun. Here are five reasons you need to find a headband for spring racing now.

1. Prada showed headbands at their SS show - And Miuccia Prada is the ultimate style dictator

Prada’s Spring/Summer runway show featured more headbands than weve ever seen on the runway, well, since the 90s, and we loved it. Padded and puffy, these headbands created a colorful halo to frame the gorgeous models as they made their way down the catwalk. This fresh take on the classic 90s headband made us scramble to find our own for the Spring Racing Carnival.

If the Prada puff is a bit extreme for you, no worries, there are more subtle options. Great brands offer headbands with a central knot, turban-style, to give you that Prada puffy look without the extreme height.

2. Pearl headbands work with every race day wardrobe

Great accessory brands have blended jewelry with headwear this season, offering gorgeous pearl headbands as a spring racing accessory. A pearl headband is super versatile for the entire Spring Racing Carnival as it works for Derby days monochromatic dress code, as well as the feminine ladys day theme. Plus, it makes planning the rest of your jewelry simple: pearl studs are a must.

3. Florals, for spring, are finally groundbreaking

Forget Miranda Priestly, this year florals are truly groundbreaking thanks to their new position on top of your head. Channel the exceptionally bold and beautiful headbands from Dolce and Gabbanas SS19 show with your own floral headband. Choose from headbands crafted with tiny, delicate flowers for a subtle take on the spring theme, or go all out with a headband complete with two stunning roses on your head. The dramatic flower headband is the perfect way to elevate a simple dress, or transform a dress youve had for years into an entirely fresh outfit.

If youre feeling like channeling more queen of the fairiesthan Italian temptress, great accessory brands have created halo headbands with an entire row of fine flowers that sits out from your head to create the illusion of height and royalty all in one.

4. You can wear your spring racing headwear again and again

How many times have you worn that fascinator you bought for last years spring racing carnival? Well bet never. Unless youre invited to Princess Beatrices royal wedding next year, its doubtful youll ever wear it again.

Thanks to the chic new headband though, you can re-wear your spring racing headwear after the carnival has ended. From beaded headbands to floral designs and pearls, your racing headwear has never been so versatile. If you choose a neutral color such as white or black, youre even more likely to wear it multiple times throughout the carnival, and at weddings and black tie events long afterwards.

5. Your headwear wont fall off (or blow away)

We all know the Spring Racing Carnival can be windy, rainy or fine, after all, its Melbourne. One of the challenges of the carnival is being able to catch your hat as it blows off your head before it crosses into your neighbors carpark or over the fence. With this seasons headbands, this worry is completely eliminated as you wont loose your headpiece unless someone forcibly removes it.

Stay on trend this Spring Racing Carnival and follow Jessica Alba and Elle Fannings lead by embracing the headband. Itll keep you looking chic, while also becoming a wearable accessory in your post-Carnival wardrobe.
