Call it a head wrap, head tie or head scarf — the trend is back again. Naturally, the headband makes us think of the ’60s retro fashion or vintage movie stars, but we’ve seen them recently in the Marc Jacobs Spring/ Summer 2018 fashion show, where the models were rocking in boho-chic headpieces. We’ve also spotted them on a slew of Thai fashionistas on our Instagram feed. A perfect example, @wearqpraew is wearing the colour-blocking and printed version from Basics by Sita x FLAT 2112. Cool and glamourous, the head wrap is the most stylish way to step out this summer.
Step aside oversized shades — matrix-style sunglasses are all the rage, which is why we’ve seen them in the latest collections of many luxury designer brands including Louis Vuitton and Miu Miu. Bangkok is no exception, with young Thai stars such as @khunfour and @aom_sushar also capturing this fun style trend. Here, @sammycowelll is sporting the matrix-style eyewear from Les Specs, Marvel Vision Thailand in a cat-eye silhouette, adding an edgy touch to her sophisticated outfits.
The belt-bag trend is definitely not slowing down any time soon. While we’ve seen it from a number of international high-end brands such as Gucci and Balenciaga, luxurious local brands like BOYY Boutique also embrace the belt-bag trend. Giving it a modern update, the brand features futuristic details in its Deon Belt Bag. We particularly like how @toeyjarinporn pairs this metallic-gold coloured BOYY Bag with her vintage dress from Kloset.
The groundbreaking accessory this summer is undoubtedly the transparent bag. Since Céline has launched the see-through tote in its recent Spring/Summer 2018 collection, this arm candy continues to gain attention. It has recently become more well-known to Thai fashion society, when the famous celebrity, @chomismaterialgirl cut a dash with her Céline plastic bag, featuring a checked jacket from Miu miu and street-style jeans from Y/PROJECT.
With London and Milan Fashion Week introducing the knee-high socks, they are out in full force this season. The trend has started from athletic-style socks with sneaker ensemble, then shifted to colourful sheer socks with a ladylike-shoe combination. As we can see in the photo of this Thai super star, @aum_patchrapa effortlessly matches her green knee-high socks with her pointed-toe heels, exuding an elegant sophistication. To get this gorgeous look, check out Fendi and Missoni for their eccentric socks.
