Serena van de Woodsen is the ‘It girl’ in the iconic TV series, Gossip Girl.
All of a sudden, girls everywhere were rocking plaid coats and printed stockings with open-toe shoes, in order to emulate the brunette schemer’s style. But without a doubt, the biggest trend Blair trailblazed was hair accessories.
Bow headbands, bejewelled tiaras, berets… you name it, Blair wore it—and naturally, we did, too.
Somewhere along the way, the hair accessories trend died out (probably when Gossip Girl ended in 2012).
Which is a shame, really, as they’re the perfect way to fix a bad hair day and level up your look.
The good news is, hair accessories are back in a major way! We’ve been seeing them everywhere lately—from international runways to the Instagram feeds of some of our fave fashion bloggers and celebrity hair stylists.
