Suffice it to say, we love a drugstore staple one could mistake for a designer dud.

Shailene Woodley (opens in new tab) has done us proud yet again by donning a black wide headband — yes, just like the Goody headwraps you buy at the corner store for less than a metro ride — on the red carpet at the New York screening of her new film White Bird In A Blizzard.

The look was presumably a nod to Marc Jacobs' Fall 2014 runway, where the models' razor-sharp rose pink wigs were topped off with muted brown headbands.

I’m the associate web editor at Marie Claire. I love to while away the hours at coffee shops, hunt for vintage clothes, and bask in the rough-and-tumble beauty of NYC. I firmly believe that solitude can be a luxury if you’ve got the right soundtrack—that being the Rolling Stones, of course.
