New York Fashion Week – or any fashion week, really – is typically a time to ogle. Meaning while we may keep an eye on the runway and track the trends, nobody is seriously considering toting a picture of an updo riddled with nails to the salon and asking for a reproduction. But this NYFW is different. It’s beautiful, accessible, affordable – like $4.99 affordable. Designers have sent an unprecedented slew of beauty looks and accessories down the runway that you can find pretty much anywhere.
There have been claw clips and Hot Topic-adjacent hot pink wigs. And while the clip at the drug store might not have the words “Alexander Wang” embossed on it, who on earth is keeping track? So slap on that Dr. Pepper chapstick, grab yourself a Cinnabon, and get your mall rat on to pick up the hottest trends from NYFW. Just try not to fight outside of Abercrombie with your mom like last time. Ahead, six runway hair accessories you can get from CVS, Claire’s, and any old drugstore at all.
The Claw Clip
Alexander Wang sent banana clips down the runway and the world rejoiced. Call it banana clip (or maybe don’t if you want to avoid the ire of the ‘net), call it a claw clip, whatever you call it, you’re going to want this now-stylish accessory this when the weather heats up.
