Tudor Style



Alice bands are quickly shedding their dodgy 80's connotations (something I doubt scrunchies will ever achieve). Browsing Asos earlier, I came across this leather studded spine alice band, which I found rather intriguing. Despite its modern, even Alien-esque/sci-fi look, I immediately thought of Anne Boleyn. The model looks rather regal don't you think?



Anne Boleyn: way ahead of her time. Almost 500 years ahead in fact.


Alternatively, Jennifer Behr can help you achieve that Tudor style, with these rather beautiful twisted velvet designs. I'd be willing to give these looks a go, not sure how I'd style my hair though.

I really like the way it looks on the model! I would look rather silly wearing one, but I can see this trend taking off for sure

Totally! Someone needs to wear that with one of my Boleyn necklaces. It would be perfect!
