Fabric headbands are bang on trend this season. Knotted, printed or embellished with beads and sequins, there's nothing prim about this hero hair accessory, so we're taking a deep dive look at all our favourite headbands for women.

Adopted by celebrities and even royalty such as the Duchess of Cambridge, headbands can add a little touch of glamour to your everyday wardrobe.

The best thing is that they're as easy to pair with a classic white T-shirt as they are to wear as the finishing touch to a glamorous party dress. Headbands can add a playful twist to your classic casual jeans look or become the showcase accessory for your evening ensemble.

The humble headband really is a simple accessory that can transform an outfit, and even help hide a bad hair day. And, for those of us spending much of our time working remotely on video calls, a headband can be an instant quick-fix to smarten up your look before a zoom meeting.

With so many high street and high-end headbands to choose from, there's a style out there to suit every budget. However, with so many options available, it can be hard to know just where to start.

Below, we've rounded up all the best headbands for women on the high street now to make your decision easier. You'll find our favourite hand-picked selections from brands including Boden, & Other Stories, New Look and Anthropologie covering a range of patterns and styles.
