Christmas is coming and we know that all of you will want to sparkle this party season. Whether you’re bound for a festive shindig or a glittering winter wedding, here at Jess Collett Milliner, we have all your headwear needs covered.
When you’re dancing the night away you want to feel like your best and most gorgeous self, but you probably don’t want to be worried about getting sweaty under your hat. Luckily we have a solution for you, a cornucopia of fun and fashionable accessories that are lightweight, easy to wear and perfect for adding that touch of glamour to make you stand out from the crowd.
Almost all of these beauties can be made in bespoke colours, including dying to match your outfit, so you can rest assured that you’ll be co-ordinated (or clashing, if that’s your thing!) from top to toe.
Our iconic silk velvet turban bands are just the thing for a little old school glamour and can be dressed up or down as you like. To wow at a wedding, think slicked-back hair or an elegant up do, or for a more relaxed look, hair loose and flowing. The band frames the face beautifully and the knot adds height and interest. This shape is flattering on absolutely everyone, and can be paired with a black or gold veil for those who really want to take it up a notch.
In fact, if you can’t resist the allure of a veil, we’re delighted to tell you about our new birdcage veils, in gold, black and black sparkle. Complete with customisable velvet bows, bobby pins and combs to keep everything in perfect shape, the birdcage veil might as well have stepped straight off a classic Hollywood film set. Light, comfortable and easy to style, wear this out on the town and you’ll feel like a 1940s starlet all evening!
There are times when there is simply no such thing as too much glitter, and we would argue that a good Christmas party is one such occasion. Enter: the Electric Hairband! Absolutely encrusted with pewter and black beading, this lovely plaited band is available with or without a veil. One of the sparkliest pieces we offer, this is a choice that will certainly help you to light up the room.
Our range of velvet headbands are another guaranteed winner for any of your dressing up needs – choose from our dazzling selection of styles, from the sinuous snake of Venus to the vintage-veiled Bardot, all made from startlingly soft velvet, beautifully embellished and available in an almost unlimited range of colours. These are a great choice for the winter bride looking for a beautiful, colour-matched option for her bridal party.
As we’re talking about party pieces, it would be remiss of us not to mention what is perhaps our most popular creation ever, the Golden Crown. In this case, all that glitters really is gold; this beautiful piece mimics classical laurel wreaths, fits right in with the classiest Christmas decorations, and looks incredible on all ages, face shapes and with pretty much any outfit. It’s versatile; it’s comfortable and it’s unbelievably sparkly. Wear it and you can’t help but feel like a queen.
Of course, you may want something completely bespoke, something that no-one has seen before that the party circuit will be talking about for years to come. While we love our couture collection and can customise pieces to fit your needs, we can also create something entirely new, just for you. If you have something specific in mind and you don’t see it, get in touch via email to book an appointment and Jess can work her magic to create your ultimate party piece. After all, in the words of Audrey Hepburn: life is a party. Dress like it.
