14 Blair Waldorf-Inspired Headbands To Wear This Spring


In case you haven't noticed, 2019 is the year of the hair accessory. Beyond our sudden infatuation with all sorts of jazzed up hair clips, another classic has resurfaced: the headband.

Thanks to Prada's Spring 2019 collection, the headband is back and, in our opinion, better than ever. Ranking as one of the biggest street style trends of Fall 2019 Fashion Month, today's iterations are a far cry from the preppy versions of our childhoods. Whether padded, bedazzled, or knotted (or, all three), these wear more like a crown.

Below, we rounded up 14 of our favorites. Blair Waldorf, eat your heart out!
