The Plush Hair Accessory You’ll Want To Buy In Every Color This Fall

Like gold glitter and animal print, velvet transcends seasons. No longer tucked into the back of your closet only to be pulled out once a year for your office holiday party, a touch of the soft fabric adds texture and style to any look, be it a festive occasion or just something you throw on with your go-to jeans and a T-shirt before meeting your friends for Saturday brunch.

This fall, the velvet trend has saturated the most affordable category: hair accessories. Because unlike a marigold velvet blazer or even a velvety crossbody bag, the soft-padded headband is the most cost-effective way to add an instant punch of velvet to your wardrobe.


From a classic black band you can grab at Target to a romantic blush-pink knotted Lele Sadoughi option, scroll through the gallery ahead for the velvet headbands we're loving for fall.

Lele Sadoughi Rose Velvet Headband
