Working in fashion, I’m privy to a lot of upcoming trends. One of the hottest trends I’ve been seeing lately is the Party Pony! Also known as the formal pony, top pony, or even just the regular old ponytail.
Honestly, there are so many amazing benefits to wearing a party pony to an event. First of all, you can dance the night away without ever having to worry about your hair. Next, you don’t have to worry about the weather. What if there’s rain? Sleet, snow, super cold, crazy humidity? Doesn’t matter! And finally, it’s just so chic! In fact, I think the party pony is the It Girl’s version of a classic up-do.
One of the best things about the party pony is its versatility. You can glam it up, or glam it down, wear it high, or wear it low. I’m a huge fan of the top pony, so a full on Ariana Grande is always my go-to. Plus, I think it looks better with at least second day hair (if not third or fourth!), so it’s an incredible option when you have multiple events in one weekend.
Some of my favorite ways to adorn a pony are with creative hair ties. I love this crystal bow from Nordstrom. I got it last Christmas, but found a similar option here. Of course a huge chiffon bow is always a great choice. Especially for spring and summer. It’s perfect for every event from lunch with the fam to a wedding.
In addition, I have to mention another Party Pony accessory that is having a total moment right now – the scrunchie! I’m not usually a huge scrunchie fan, but I adore this new print from Slip and they’re perfect for casual events like graduation parties or a laid back brunch.
However, if you’re not a big accessories kind of gal, you can always just wrap your hair around the pony to hide your hair tie, pin it, and call it good! Just covering the hair tie works like magic to take your Party Pony up a notch.
Now, if you’re more of a low pony kind of girl, you can always go with that too! But I have problems with creating a low pony that doesn’t make me look like one of the founding fathers.
Finally, another amazing point in the pro column for the party pony – you can wear absolutely any makeup look! Wanting to wear a dramatic wing? Check! A dark and sexy smokey eye? Double check. How about a sultry red lip or glam glitter vibes? Check, check, check! Plus it makes it super easy to wear a fantastic pair of statement earrings which are so hot right now! My pink earrings are from Amazon, come in 10 colors, and can be found here.
