For those days where life is all about being easy-breezy, the top-knot is the way to go. Just make sure you’ve got the right clothing and accessories to get the job done.
The top knot is a quick but stylish way to get your hair under control. With a few easy steps, you can just toss your hair up and achieve an effortlessly cool look. But don’t stop there! Before you head out the door, here are some ways you can take your look to the next level the next time you have a top-knot.
Check out the right clothing and accessories to go with your top-knot...
1. The classic half messy/ half neat top-knot
The classic half messy/ half neat top-knot works great for looks that are more casual or “off duty.” One way to achieve this is by grabbing a slightly oversized sweater and a pair of comfy boyfriend jeans. Make sure to pull the outfit together with accessories like a trendy saddle bag and some stylish slides.
2. The sleek top knot
If you decide to go for a sleeker top knot, you should go ahead and take the clothing up a notch as well. With the winter chill beginning to disappear, it's a great time to wear a brightly colored cocktail dress and to give your legs some sunlight. A top knot actually makes you appear taller so highlight the length of your legs with a pair of strappy heels, and you and your top-knot will be ready for that next semi-formal event in the spring.
3. The messy top-knot
The messier top-knots may look best with something a little edgier. For those who long to release their grungy side, you can rock this look with a pastel blouse, while adding some attitude with leather pants and a denim jacket. Add some edgy heels and voila - you are ready to rock the night away.
Don’t forget to accessorize those ears! When your hair is pulled back and away from your face, it leaves plenty of room to expose a pair of face-framing earrings. You can keep the earrings simple by wearing studs, or draw the eye further up by wearing something longer.
Grab your quirkiest pair of sunglasses. When you’ve got a top-knot, there is more room to accessorize the face. Why not take advantage of some of the latest styles in eyewear? We’re seeing lots of interesting embellishments, shapes, and colors for the spring.
