Baby accessorizing is nothing new, especially headwear. Little ones are known to lose heat through their heads, so a little coverage over that fuzzy head is key in their early months—then make it fashion! These days, celebrity mommies and mommy bloggers everywhere take to Instagram daily to show off how they're dressing up their little ones, and we can't help but swoon. One style, in particular, has been taking baby fashion by a storm: Headwraps and top knots.
This sweet look is a chic upgrade from your average beanie or little hat. It can be spotted on the babies of a lot of celebrity moms from Hilary Duff to Kate Hudson and Khloe Kardashian. If your infant is always on the move, the turban and top knots are designed to stay put, unlike some other hats and accessories that spend more time on the floor than on your baby's noggin. The wraps are easy to slide on, too—yes, even on a very squirmy babe. We've hand-picked our favorite turbans, top knots and headwraps from Amazon, Etsy and more so your stylish baby can don some flair, without sacrificing comfort.
