I was so not feeling the whole turban trend until I spotted the Spiked Turban Headwrap by Jennifer Behr. I think I have at least 30 more years before I’ll contemplate working a full-on turban (à la Liz Taylor), so I’m not ruling it out. But for now, this supremely spiky number might be the only turban I think the younger fashionista could wear without looking like a complete trend victim. It’s just so bad, it’s good, non?

Alright, so I’ve convinced you that a crown of silver spikes is a good thing. Unfortunately, the Jennifer Behr Spiked Turban Headwrap is not only insanely expensive at $498 (for a headwrap?), even if you were prepared to pony up, it’s totally sold out. But you can still scare all the little children (and probably some big people, too) with the Spikey Stud Headband from Topshop. Fashion, fear and fabulousness, all for only $60. No wonder why Topshop is the top stop for style mavens across the globe.

Last year during the annual Venice Film Festival in Italy Eva Mendes attended a dinner party hosted by Jaeger Le-Coultre looking like the summer goddess that she is. The actress wore a flowy white Chloé maxi dress which she accessorized with cork wedges and a luxurious diamond watch by Jaeger Le-Coultre. It’s a great summer look for a semi-formal event like a sophisticated garden party or any other outdoor event. Recreate Eva’s boho look with our equally stylish yet budget-friendly picks below.

Did Diane von Furstenberg feel the influence of pop icon and songstress Lady Gaga when she designed her collection of ginormous bow headbands? One can never underestimate Gaga power. After all, the Fall 2010 ready-to-wear shows were teeming with models in “no pants” (Gagaspeak for the bodysuit, worn with, well, no pants). Maybe DvF was inspired by Gaga’s (literal) hair bow from her Poker Face video, with a little glitz borrowed from headband queen Blair Waldorf (of Gossip Girl). It certainly can’t be Tavi Gevinson’s famous, view-blocking bow since the collection was already in production at that point.

DvF’s oversized headpieces may have been fun on the runway, but for real life, there wouldn’t be many females past the age of five willing to rock one. Of course, the little girl in me still loves the sweetness of a bow headband, and luckily we found several affordable, scaled down versions we think you’ll love too.

Nicole Richie looked absolutely fabulous when she was out and about in Beverly Hills a few weeks ago. Nicole was wearing a red double breasted coat from Sonia by Sonia Rykiel, black skinny jeans & matching Louboutins with white trimmed Chanel sunglasses, a slouchy Rick Owens beanie and her much loved Balenciaga motorcycle bag.
