The Nineties Called...

Tuesday, May 1, 2018


The nineties called and they want their hair accessories back. Clips, barrettes, and headbands are making their way back onto the fashion scene and I hate myself for throwing away all my childhood hair accessories (not the butterfly clips though - those can stay in the past). This trend caught my eye thanks to good old instagram and all the gals sporting this throwback trend during fashion week. The runways have also been hinting at this comeback with designers such as Gucci, Saks Potts, and Alexa Chung all paying homage to the nineties.

New York-based label KHAITE has the dreamiest lookbooks that include thick headbands reminiscent of the ones CBK would wear. 
Speaking of Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy, she was the ultimate nineties dream

Influencers of today have their own take on this trend:
