We appreciate anything that’s functional and fashionable, and the best earmuffs certainly live up to that test. They’re the perfect accessory for a below-freezing day—an easy way to get some ear protection and add some whimsy to your outfit. Better yet, these fuzzy winter headbands are back in style in a major way; they’ve been spotted on everyone from Bella Hadid to Kendall Jenner. They’re way cuter than the standard winter hat and a nice way to try something a little bit different—while staying warm in frigid temps.
