Ed. Obsession Under $20: Bejeweled headbands

Halloween weekend is here at last, hunnies! Know what you’re wearing? Don’t freak if you haven’t got a clue for your costume. I was right there with you this morning, until I spied a shimmery accessory that will finish your fright-night fash.
 

Enter: the beaded elastic headband, which has had me bewitched ever since GL intern Alexis used one to craft her 60-second updo. It tops off any costume of choice. Flapper? Retro-rific. Add a feather for that Deco dazzle. Greek goddess? Gladly. Place a gilded braided headwrap for your Grecian get-up. Hippie? Far out. Pick a patterned piece for a boho vibe.

 

But unlike kitty ears or devil horns, this bejeweled beaut works when you’re dressing up as, ya know, yourself. Keep it hovering above your forehead, like the model in the pic, or shift it so it’s nestled in your hair. And, you can wear it for non-costume holidays. Think: holiday parties through your V-Day dates. There’s never a bad time to add a little shine.
