5 More Hair Accessories To NOT Wear Anytime Soon (Or Would You?)
We've played this game before, and it's time for another round. Here's how it goes: I find some of the silliest (IMO) hair accessories currently in stores, and you either join me in poking fun at them OR bravely admit that you actually kind of like one of them.
Through Aqua Colored Glasses Clip, $13 at ModCloth
I feel bad making fun of this clip because it's cute--I mean, miniature spectacles can't help but be cute. However, I do not think miniature spectacles are cute when worn in your hair. Unless you are five.
Shut Up Headband, $13 at Asos
I think this brand's Shut Up shirt is funny and endearing in its randomness. But this thick knit headband version of the idea just feels TOO random. It really should say "WTF", because that's all that comes to mind when I look at it.

Buyer's Remorse Montreal Turban Headband, $58 at Pink Mascara
The brand name (Buyer's Remorse!) says it all. But if you still want to wear this look, save yourself the cash: Tear a strip of fabric off your ugliest shiny satin bridesmaid dress and tie it around your forehead Rambo-style. Done.
Cross Headwrap, $10 at Urban Outfitters
Maybe it's my decades of Catholic schooling, but I find nothing tackier than when people hang rosary beads from their necks or rear-view mirrors. Oh no, wait! This cross head wrap is tackier.

Lace Scrunchie, $3 at Forever 21
I've come to terms with the fact that scrunchies are back. However, I cannot accept this particular scrunchie, which is apparently inspired by those cheap garters people toss during wedding receptions. Or the garters people wear with cheap French maid costumes on Halloween. Either way, not a good way to class up your ponytail.

We love how a new nail polish has the ability to instantly change your look and your mood with a simple swipe. While happy lime greens and aquas are ruling the five million #nailpolish Instagrams this summer, there are a variety of great colors to choose from—whether you want an office-appropriate neutral or a fun going-out shade that’ll give your LBD a punch of color.
You already know wearing white after Labor Day is cool. But menswear is reinventing itself rapidly, leaving some long-held mandates by the wayside, not to mention a bunch of men with a lot of questions. Sure, some style laws are truly inviolable. Showing a quarter-inch of cuff will always be crucial, but with designers and dandies flaunting so many former taboos it's hard to tell what's in play these days. So we thought we'd take this opportunity to let you know which rules no longer apply.
Put down the wrinkled button-down, step away from the Crocs, and open your closet. We need to talk about the new rules of casual.
