Blair Waldorf and Her Many Headbands Will Forever Be the Star of 'Gossip Girl'

See her most fashionable looks from the show’s 6-season run.

Good morning, Upper East Siders. Haven’t you heard that Gossip Girl is officially back with a reboot? As an extension of the CW series that ran from 2007 to 2012, the upcoming show launching on HBO Max will center around a new generation of private school teens in New York who discover Gossip Girl eight years after the website went dark. It remains unclear whether the original cast, including Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, Penn Badgley, Ed Westwick and Chace Crawford, will appear in the new series or not, but we’re betting that one of the biggest stars of the show will be returning to our screens. No, not Georgina Sparks (although we do miss her mischief and ability to always create drama), we’re talking about Blair Waldorf’s signature headbands.

The hair accessory has been a fashion staple for the prep school queen bee throughout all six seasons of Gossip Girl. From shiny satin and bow-topped styles, to jewel-encrusted and veiled designs, Blair pretty much has a headband for every occasion.

They say that the fashion trend cycle runs like a clockwork. Now over a decade since Gossip Girl first premiered, we’re seeing a resurgence of headbands on the runway this year. The return of the show seems timely as designers like Miuccia Prada, Simone Rocha and Gucci‘s Alessandro Michele have made headbands one of the hottest fashion items of 2019, a trend that the fashionable Blair Waldorf would certainly approve of.

Take a look at some of Blair’s most stylish headband looks in the gallery above. And for all the Jenny Humphreys who’d like to join the party, here are 10 designer headbands you can shop online.
