These are the perfect headbands for transitional weather. I love that at this time of year when the weather fluctuates even on a 2 hour shopping trip I can easily keep one of these in my purse. They are more comfortable than ones I've bought from other stores. Not to tight and not too loose. The right amount of stretch. Keep my ears toasty! Last year I bought the exact same ones in burgundy and cream. So excited they got black now since I'm all about the black! Just ordered the black one.
