Yes, Scrunchies Are Back for Spring, So Just Go With It
“High-fashion” and “scrunchie” might be two phrases you never expected to use together, but yet here we are in 2018, and designers are giving the polarizing hair accessory a serious image makeover. Like most retro fashion trends (mom jeans, Birkenstocks), the scrunchie is making a comeback — and thanks to covetable labels like Balenciaga and Solid and Striped, it might even be considered cool. No really, hear us out.
Whether you’re open to the scrunchie revival or dead set against it, there’s no denying the ruffly hair accessory is officially a thing again. Sure, when Mansur Gavriel sent them down their Fall 2017 runway, we chuckled. It was a cute stunt but surely an anomaly, right? Nope. Flash forward to present day and It girl labels everywhere seem to be offering their own takes on the throwback trend. 2018’s scrunchies are all kinds of luxe, with options available in silk, leather, and more. So while you may have thought you’d never live to see the day, we dare you to scroll through this collection of stylish scrunchies and not want to shop at least a few of them.
