Amanda Gorman is undoubtedly one of the breakout stars of 2021 – and now, the poet’s influence on fashion has been revealed. According to digital fashion search engine Lyst, which has just released its results for the first quarter of the year, Gorman is behind one of the biggest fashion moments of 2021 so far.
The website claims that searches for ‘red headbands’ spiked by an amazing 560 per cent after the poet was pictured wearing her Prada style at the 2021 US inauguration.
And, there is little surprise that she has kickstarted a trend. Not only did she look great, but when it comes to hair accessories, the humble headband is pretty much the most classic you can get. While it may remind you of your school days, designers have taken the accessory to new heights in recent seasons, delivering chic, statement and chunky styles that are far more elegant than the versions you may have loved in your youth.
A piece you can wear to a wedding, on holiday or even for just sprucing up your Zoom-meeting look, the headband is one of the best and easiest accessories to elevate an outfit with. From beaded animal print to lashings of satin and all-out embellishment, here’s our edit of the best headbands to shop now.
