Headpieces, headbands—basically, anything head wrap related—is on trend right now. Plumes, jewels and, and for LA-based Space Mermaid designer Stephanie Carbone, lots of florals for fall, all of which will be available online soon. Above check some examples, which range from rather delicate combinations to pieces you will absolutely make a statement in. Prices range from $95-$200, and will be available in additional colors. Note, the braided suede pieces can be worn as belts as well.
Also for fall, Space Mermaid has a collection of wrap jewelry, a combination of hand-braided cotton, gemstones, pearls and charms, and silver- or gold-plated chains. The line offers tons of versatility as each piece can be worn as a necklace, belt, headband, bracelet or anklet, depending on how much you want to wrap and layer. Wrappers range from $40-$90. Check the lot after the jump.
