    Fashion Must-Have: New Headbands by Local Designer Kristen Amato

    Kristen Amato's new line of headbands have already debuted in several Chicago stores.

    Remember when you decided to grow your bangs out? It was sixth grade, and your mom made you wear a headband everyday until your hair was presentable again.

    Let’s just say it really wasn’t the best look for your formative years…

    Well, you – and headbands – have come a long way since then.

    That’s why Chicago designer Kristen Amato is expanding her popular jewelry line, K-Amato, (Eva Longoria Parker is a fan) to include skinny headbands, accented with vintage pieces in gold filigree.

    The headbands stay true to Amato’s style, which has been described as “breezy” and “feminine.” The new headbands retail for $38, and will soon be on sale at www.k-amato.com. (You can already find them at Macy's, Mint Julep and Tribeca.)

    Now you look back at sixth grade and realize you were just ahead of your time.

    You’re so fashion-forward.
