This party season will be different to that of 2020 but also still different from the years before too. Not quite free of the pandemic and not quite in a lockdown but with restrictions still in place.

Meaning deciding what to wear when we socialise is still difficult. Pre-pandemic the easiest way to converse with friends on dress code was: ‘jeans and a nice top’ or ‘heels or no?. Now however we still like to have the opportunity to dress up but are so used to comfort that we tend to sway more towards casual and comfy dressing.

Well, here’s the secret to upping your party season outfit game, without having to feel over or underdressed again – hair accessories.

Something as simple as a nice hair clip to snatch your hair up can take your glitzy dress from too glam to just right and a beautifully embellished headband can take your jeans and white t ensemble to effortlessly chic.

Below are the Emirates Woman-approved hair accessories that are sure to make party-season dressing a whole lot easier this year.
