Talk about a revival.

Read that title again and again…and for good measure, one more time. Scrunchies are a relic of your Lisa Frank-peppered childhood, and they’re back with a Mansur Gavriel-flavored vengeance. Don’t try and fight it.

The taste in our mouths is pretty sweet, actually. Mansur’s versions are nothing like the near-painful neon ones of yore (you know, the kind that would come with a pair of matching legwarmers)—instead, they’re made in dainty, muted hues like powder blue, petal pink, and one winning shade of marsala, not to mention a curated selection of vintage floral prints.


So, wait. Are we saying that the scrunchie, perhaps the most contested souvenir of the '80s lewk fashion currently chameleons, is now tasteful? Yes, that is exactly what we’re saying. The cool crowd chimes in, too, as you can see.

Right now, there’s just no better accessory to secure a haphazard chignon with.


That’s your cue to pull yours out from the same drawer those old retainers are buried in.
