If you’re wondering when we’ll stop making references to the fashion of Gossip Girl—a show that hasn’t been on the air since 2012—well, the year 2018 isn’t it. Because Miuccia Prada, Simone Rocha, and other designers agree that luxurious headbands are once again A Thing. Blair Waldorf would be proud.
Of course, headbands predate Gossip Girl—and have stuck around since it ended, with accessories brands like Jennifer Behr and Lele Sadoughi creating demand for them in the high-end market—but the Spring 2019 runways and accompanying street style made us do a double-take. Those thick, often velvet or embellished (or sometimes both) accents made everything from frilly dresses to jeans feel a tad more precious. The appeal is obvious: It’s an accessory you don’t really have to think about or fuss over. And whether you seek out a vintage-inspired one from Batsheva or prefer to buy yours in multiples from Amazon, you can recreate the Waldorf look this fall.
Ahead, check out our favorite fashion headbands—the ones Blair would definitely be eyeing—you can shop right now.
