If you haven't considered adorning that steadfast little accessory you once swore by in elementary school, it may be time to reconsider. Not only does a headband transform an outfit like a skillfully-placed pair of shoes, unlike those six inch heels, they're practical- even useful! They have made a huge comeback (I'm talking sheer numbers), and they've sure come a long way in the style department, too. While I may not recommend the bunny ears Marc Jacobs introduced to the 2009 LV fall collection for everyday use, I think the swiftly growing (and a bit more subtle) flowered headband trend is definitely worth investing in. From the catwalks of Anna Sui to the runways of Diane von Furstenburg, the flowered headband is quickly blossoming into a fresh and youthful look for Winter/Spring 09. Above are three examples of DvF's version of the style. Pictured below is Louis Vuitton's notorious ears.
