It turns out that veils were made for more than wedding day style statements. The sheer, gauze material has made its way from the runway to the red carpet and might just be your new favorite accessory. Find out how to wear it, and let us know what you think of the high-fashion trend!
Style-savvy celebs like Beyoncé and Rihanna have jumped onboard with the veil trend, but naturally they’ve given the retro look a cool, modern update. Whether copying the look seen at Chanel and wearing the net attached to a beanie or opting for Giambattista Valli‘s delicate headband pairing, the look can be totally cool.

Add a bit of edge: If you want to make a bold statement with the look, follow Rihanna and Miley Cyrus‘ lead. Both made the look cold weather friendly by pairing the veil with a classic beret, shiny curls and a rich red lipstick in Rihanna’s case, while Miley tucked her blonde pixie underneath a veiled beanie.
Understated elegance: Look to Beyoncé and Selena Gomez for veiled styling inspiration if you want a delicate veil with a more retro feel. Bey wore her half veil on its own with a deep burgundy lip, while Selena went for a full veil attached to a tiny black headband.

No matter what style veil you gravitate towards, the look undoubtedly calls for a bold lip. Since the netting will be covering at least the upper half of your face, be sure you’ve defined your brows and have curled and applied mascara to your lashes so your eyes don’t get lost under the material. Coat your lips in a classic red color like MAC Lipstick in Russian Red or a seasonal fall berry shade like Lipstick Queen Cupid’s Bow Lip Pencil in Apollo — just make sure to keep it matte so you don’t get gloss all over your new favorite accessory.
Would you ever wear this trend, HollywoodLifers? Or is it best left to the celebs and runway shows?
