Animal Ear Accessories: Lovely Or Lame? Lucky Editors Discuss

"If I could wear animal ears every day of the week, I just might—especially if they were Maison Michel. Except, actually, during fashion week. I think they've become a bit tired during fashion week. They're too 'hey, look at me!'" - Eva Chen, editor-in-chief

 

Of all the hotly-contested trends to pop up on recent runways and red carpets—crop tops, ugly shoes, overalls—few are as utterly divisive as cat-eared accessories. Back in 2009, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were among the first to popularize the look when they both wore Maison Michel's several-hundred-dollar lace headbands to a party in Tokyo. More recently, Taylor Swift modeled a delicate bejeweled version in her "22" music video. And our own editor-in-chief Eva Chen is a self-proclaimed fan of ear-adorned hats.

But outside of Halloween, is it really OK to sport cat ears (or bear ears, or bunny ears) on your head? We asked a handful of Lucky editors what they thought about the some-call-it-twee, some-call-it-sweet trend—and their answers just might surprise you. Click through above for their thoughts!
