We love a sophisticated chignon, but now and then, a messy bun just gets us through the day. Whether we're trying to conceal third-day hair or can't get our locks to cooperate (aka bad hair days), a topknot is always the answer. No one knows this more than Karlie Kloss, who was spotted all around NYC in her easy updo this week.
The model embraced the summer-worthy hairstyle right as we entered winter, and her look couldn't be fresher. Sure everyone's rocked a topknot in the past, and Kloss isn't necessarily starting a trend, but she makes a case for the casual look despite the chilly days ahead. Wearing your hair down keeps your neck warm, but Kloss's throwback approach—complete with a center part and face-framing hair tendrils—makes us forget all about the polar vortex. We're thinking the laid-back 'do is in our future this winter. We'll just bundle up with a scarf and accessorize with a bright lip.
