We are into spring here in New England (a rainy spring, but still spring!). We discussed in the last blog and Facebook Live that we are focusing on light, airy accessories that still have enough weight to make a statement! Bright colors and statement pieces are everything right now. To complement this, this month we are focusing on our new accessories arrivals! We have so many great additions to our store to complement the spring feel and we want you to be the first to know!
 
The Versatile Bandana/Neckerchief
We can not stress enough how in trend bandanas are right now. Everywhere you look, from social media to celebrities in your favorite magazines, bandanas are being styled. New in stock from Chan Luu, we have bright colored pink, blue and green bandana neckerchiefs in fun plaid and paisley patterns. Again, keeping with the lightweight theme of spring and summer, the bandanas are thin and breathable. The plaid bandanas are 100% silk making them extremely soft and comfortable to wear.

We also carry other bandana neckerchiefs from the designer Blue Pacific and Yunis K. With so many ways to use them, bandanas really will be your best accessory this spring!
 
The Even MORE Versatile Scrunchie Bandana/Neckerchief
If you thought the bandanas were versatile, you haven’t seen anything yet! Chan Luu has done the impossible and incorporated the bandana neckerchief into a scrunchie to make it the ultimate accessory. If you have long hair this 2 in 1 Scrunchie Bandana might be the bandana option for you.
This accessory can be used whole as a cute scrunchie with a bandana accent. If that isn’t your look, try them separate as just a scrunchie or as a cute neckerchief.
We have created some styling looks below! Note: model has a fairly thin neck.

But be creative! There are many nonconventional ways to use your scrunchie bandanas. They can be worn as a bracelet, can be tied to a well loved handbag to give it a fresh look or to liven up a plain straw bag.
 
Skinny Scarves
We have always been a fan of Chan Luu skinny scarves, but this season we are extra excited about this accessory because of the bright colors! We recently restocked our skinny scarf collection, changing out winter and fall dark neutral colors for bright floral prints. With thoughts of spring and summer in mind, we ordered a shorter light weight, skinny scarf option. Some of these are short enough to resemble a necklace! That is how light weight and wearable these pieces are.
The scarves come in many different lengths and widths, so be sure to check the size in the product description and the model pictures before purchasing.
Model pictures below will help give a sense of how each skinny scarf lays depending on its length. Click images to shop!
Note: model is 5’ 7” and has a fairly thin neck.

New Arrivals in Hair Accessories:
Ficcare is a cult favorite. With up to date styles and excellent quality, Ficcare items are a must have. I don’t know about you, but in the summer there is nothing more important than an accessory that looks cute but also keeps the hair out of my face! Fun & functional is the way to go when you are on the move… at the beach, at the park, running errands, or anywhere!
Luckily, we have some great new options for you.
          Ficcare Bella French Beak: The beak style is nothing new for a Ficcare fan, but the Bella French Beak is a new style for Ficcare. They decided to create a new take on the classic beak, giving you a lower price point but still a great up-do accessory. This clip is made of all light weight acetate and we have it in four beautiful color combinations. Ficcare recommends using this clip on fine to medium volume hair. So if you are on the go and looking for a quick up-do, grab these beaks!

Ficcare Dome French Acetate Barrettes: Another new style from Ficcare, this very versatile barrette can be dressed up or down depending on the outfit. The classy and elegant acetate patterns can be perfect for a special occasion… or for everyday running errands! There really are no boundaries to these clips. We find that the half up-do is a great way to style these clips but definitely not the only way!

COMING SOON!
          The Ficcare Maximas Sunrise Primavera Hair Clips: If you are a long time fan of Ficcare, then you know the Maximas style clip very well. This Maximas clip is just as great as the others… maybe even better! The Primavera clips feature six different beautiful bright colors outlining a silver tone floral pattern. Each clip is hand-made and hand-painted making them special and unique. Unlike many other Maximas clips, the Primavera does not have an acetate top coat in combination with the metal, which makes it light weight. As usual, these Maximas clips come in small, medium and large, making them perfect for many hair types. Be on the look out for these clips.

New Jewelry from Chan Luu: A very large shipment of Chan Luu jewelry is coming in and we cannot wait to see the new styles! The main focus of our latest order is petite earrings and hoops. Chan was BIG with hoops about a few years ago, but as always, has moved onto other things.  Hoops are again trending (did they ever go out of style?). We had several of their previously most popular styles made just for LavishlyHip. These are not available on their site or other retailers. These hoops are very reasonably priced, at around $45-$60.
