When we talk about the series Gossip Girl and more specifically the look of Blair Waldorf’s character, it’s hard not to mention her iconic headband. A little stylistic detail that is making a comeback this season.
After the hair clip or the headband, another hair accessory, more divisive this time, is making a comeback this season. We are obviously talking about the headband. Colorful or monochrome, the latter returns to the heads of fashionistas whose look is inspired by the early 2000s and more specifically by the ultra-chic and preppy style of Leighton Meester’s character in Gossip Girl: Blair Waldorf.
Flat or rounded, thin or thick, covered with a precious fabric like velvet or sparkling stones… the headband resumes its reign right where it left off and easily upgrades your hairstyle. Spotted on the fall-winter 2022-2023 fashion shows by Christian Dior and Eudon Choi or at Miu Miu during its spring/summer 2023 show, the headband completes an outfit and elevates it. At the office, at the museum or in the evening, it is suitable for all occasions and is adorned with sometimes precious, sometimes light details to match your outfit.
Fashion, an eternal beginning
In recent years, the headband has suffered from a flagrant lack of popularity, like ballerinas, Bermuda shorts, low-rise jeans and even shoulder bags. Fortunately, for him, as for these other fashion outcasts, fashion is an eternal beginning. While all heads were turned towards the 90s, it was the turn of the years 2000 to 2010 to be the center of attention. A comeback all the more notable because the headband is worn in exactly the same way in 2023 as it was worn 20 years ago. On straight, frizzy or curly hair… It is suitable for all circumstances and will undoubtedly become your favorite winter accessory.
