With stately silhouettes and opulent details finding their way into fashion for fall 2013, it seemed only diligent to call regal styling a trend. But away from the heavily beaded gowns, mosaic prints and velvet capes, there’s an even simpler and more versatile way to indulge: with a princessely, regal, statement-making headband.
After the break, 5 of the best regal headpieces to provide the crowning glory to your autumn outfits.
