Headbands with ears

No, you're not hallucinating: This trend is actually happening.

Well, girls, you no longer have to wait until Halloween to put on a pair of bunny or cat ears, because your favorite stores are selling headbands with ears as we speak, as regular hair accessories (not costumes). And no, it does not appear they are joking. They are dead serious. Apparently, ear headbands are an honest-to-goodness mainstream trend.

This one's from BCBG Max Azria (one of my go-to sources for cocktail dresses to wear to weddings -- can you imagine if I rolled into the church with these on as well?).

Now, it's not like this is the first time ears have ever popped up in the fashion world. We've seen them on the runway, with designers like Marc Jacobs adding them as a quirky attention-getter, and back in August I wrote about a random Asos cat-ear headband I found oddly appealing (you guys agreed it was cute, but only as costume-wear). But who knew they'd become so widely available all the sudden? I've yet to see anyone actually wearing them while walking down the street, though, so maybe retailers are barking up the wrong tree with this idea.

Now it's time for you to tell me what YOU think about this ear-headband business. Is there any way you'd ever wear one of these things? If so, where and how? I need details.

    11 style rules to break right now

    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.

    Cool wedding beauty ideas

    It’s time for bridal beauty to loosen up. Hair doesn’t have to be tightly wound, makeup perfectly contoured, and nails French manicured (on this last point, really, please don’t). You can, in fact, look gorgeously and timelessly cool at your wedding. Here’s how.
