We have a feeling a few bad hair days may be in our future, too, so here are some of the chicest and cheapest toppers out there right now.

Nicole Richie was scheduled to sign her new book Priceless at Borders in New York City yesterday.

Miraculously, she was able to still look chic and bohemian by covering her hair with a black, wool brimmed hat and combining it with a velvet blazer, red skull scarf, torn jeans and studded black booties.
