Carrie Bradshaw's Most Feared Trend Is Back, and We're Conflicted

The '80s revival in fashion isn't exactly news, but some trends, like oversized blazers and shoulder pads, have taken off more quickly than others. But as WWD confirmed this morning, one of the most polarising '80s trends of all is about to hit the mainstream again three decades later: scrunchies.

Thanks to the always-directional Balenciaga, which included lambskin scrunchies in its Resort 18 collection, the trend is suddenly on every fashion follower's mind. According to WWD, they're "on the cusp of a full revival." Retailers like Urban Outfitters and Free People have quickly jumped on board with the retro hair accessory, and many others will undoubtedly follow. As WWD also pointed out, one brand that's on board with the trend (Comfort Objects) even cleverly renamed them "hair clouds," which we think has strong potential to catch on.

We're big fans of Donni's ultra-chic tie scrunchies right now. 

Topshop has your plush velvet option.

The scrunchie that started the revival is available in four equally bright colours.

We plan on pairing this one with an all-black outfit.

If you're going to wear a scrunchie, it might as well be a faux-fur one.
