When poet Amanda Gorman took the stage at Joe Biden‘s inauguration in January, it wasn’t just the activist’s words that captivated audiences around the world. Her brightly colored ensemble — a canary yellow coat and scarlet headband designed by Pradacaused quite a stir among viewers, too. In fact, global fashion platform Lyst reported that searches for “red headbands” similar to the satin accessory Gorman sported shot up a staggering 560 percent following the inauguration ceremony. She wasn’t the only one who opted for colorful head gear. Kamala Harris‘s niece, Ella Emhoff, wore a more subtle headband, designed by Loeffler Randal.

Granted, Gorman and Emhoff aren’t dually responsible for the rise of the humble headband, once considered the stuffy hallmark of prep school students à la Blair Waldorf. Back in 2018, models at Prada’s Spring/Summer 2019 show paraded down the runway in exaggerated, padded versions of the accessory, constructed from studded leather and shiny silk. Thanks to Miuccia, fashion’s headband craze blossomed — Fendi’s Fall/Winter 2020 collection styled chunky headbands at the nape of the neck, a clever reversal, and at Gucci, the accessory arrived encrusted in silver crystals.

Whether you’re looking to pay homage to Gorman’s inaugural outfit or add interest to your updo, keep reading for 10 statement headbands to shop now.
