Padded Headbands Are The Hottest Hair Accessories Of The Season—Here's Where To Get Them!

Trends come and go—and then come back again. The "20-Year-Rule" holds true especially in the fashion industry; in just two decades, give or take a few years, the iconic pieces of yesteryear will once again resurface to the top, claiming a slot in today's must-haves. 

In recent years, we've witnessed the resurgence of hair barrettes, bucket hats, beaded purses, denim on denim, and of course, the Dior saddle bag—but the list doesn't stop there. The newest and most buzzed about addition to today's nostaglic trends is the '60s headband—bold, daring, and padded in all its chunky glory.





From the runway to our Instagram feeds, these oversized, Kate Middleton-approved head pieces are quickly gaining momentum—and soon enough, everybody will be wanting to don these vintage comeback pieces.

Slip into the trend before everyone else does! Ahead, we've created a list where you can get your hands on padded headbands. Screencap away, Metro women!
