We're living for Chrissy Teigen's snazzy headband-of-the-day Instagram Stories

If Chrissy Teigen can't make you pull off a headband, we don't know who/what will. The 32-year old model and author has been giving us a lowdown of her family vacation in Bali—via entertaining Instagram stories of her indulging in decadent Balinese food, along with a documentation of her statement-making hair accessories with husband John Legend providing the narration and background music.

You can find Teigen's #HBOTD (headband of the day) in a special folder right below her profile on Instagram lest you need to find out celeb-approved ways of pulling it off effortlessly. Watch her rep the chic-est headbands as she go about her day, from brushing her teeth to working out. Some of our favourites include a scene-stealing polka-dotted, shimmery headband, and a cute "jungle-inspired" (in the words of her husband) green version that was complemented with dog ears from her Instagram face filter. One handy tip to glean from the mum-of-two? Wear it even if you think you don't look good in it. According to a tweet she had sent in reply to a fan: "They make my forehead even bigger. I look like a moron. That is why it's so fun. Do it."

Life motto, right there.

Below, we compiled nine headbands to take you from day to night, no matter the occasion. Wear a lamé or leather version for a party-ready look, or add texture to your outfit with knit, silk and/or rattan headbands for an island-ready getup.
