It's a much-valued staple, worn on the wrist of many busy moms, readily available to control errant tresses while playing an impromptu football game, throwing in a batch of cookies or writing a weekly column (I'm taking this piece personally).

A fashion-forward accessory was born, providing women with a practical solution to a common problem.
