Attack Of The Crazy Headbands!

Headbands, headbands, headbands. From thin and satiny to chunky and plastic, this popular accessory seems to be taking over the world. While a pretty headband can add a nice touch to a cute outfit, some of the styles out there are a little too much. Meet the Extreme Headband. It includes head wear that’s bursting with feathers, overflowing with massive bows, or suffocating from fist-sized fabric flowers. While Blair Waldorf may be able to pull off these dramatic pieces, most of us cannot — and we shouldn’t try! Nobody above the age of 12 should be wearing giant pastel-pink ribbons on their heads. Still, I see thirtysomethings trying to pull it off every day. Will this fashion mistake ever go away?

Maybe. On the season finale of “Gossip Girl,” Jenny Humphrey declared headbands “out.” (Except hers, of course!) While I’m not ready to see all head wear take a leave of absence (a simple one can be fabulous), I wouldn’t complain if the outrageous ones disappeared. Would you?
