Headed to Gracie Mansion with Mayor-elect Bill De Blasio is his amazing family — wife Chirlane McCray, son Dante and daughter Chiara. Oh, and one more thing. Chiara’s awesome array of headbands, which she has worn all campaign season. My personal favorite? This crown of roses, which Chiara wore at many events and in a De Blasio campaign ad. Best of all? I think I found Chiara’s exact headband at Urban Outfitters and it’s only $20! Score. [Urban Outfitters]

We’ve been talking about cute headbands recently and how much they can add to an outfit. This braided chain headband? Not so much. It looks less like a unique accessory and more like a scalping gone awry. I like it when people say “Cute headband,” not “Oh my god are you bleeding?” Awkward.
