Even Hillary Clinton Wears Scrunchies: The Revival of Your Favourite '90s Accessories and How to Wear Them to Work
WRITTEN BY DIMITRA SOTIRCHOS
It was a decade full of eclectic dream girls, now the iconic 90s babes are having a moment again and back on our radar as our throwback style crushes.
Cast your mind back to Bjork circa 1993, playfully dancing in the backdrop of the streets of New York in her seminal music video for dance track Big Time Sensuality. One of our most loved Bjork reincarnations, all cropped mohair, baby doll silk dress and raver style hair buns.
The ultimate teen poster girls for the 90s were Liv Tyler and Alicia Silverstone. Glossy centre parted hair, plaid mini kilts, knee high socks and Doc Martin boots where the uniform inspired by their roles in cult films Empire Records and Clueless. The Vanity Fair piece on 'The Definitive Oral History of How Clueless Became an Iconic 90s Classic' is definitely worth bookmarking for youthful nostalgia.
And who could forget the sassy girl gang from hard hitting coming-of-age film Kids. 90s skater street wear style worn with attitudes by uber it-girls Chloe Sevigny and Rosario Dawson.
We clocked singer Agnes Gryczkowska from experimental pop band band Naked as one-to watch on our style radar. She nails the current paired down 90s look for 2015.
Here are our hit list staple accessories for a modern take on 90s fashion that is all grown up.
The nonchalant hair band has been embraced on catwalks and given a high-end makeover. Tie your polished ponytails with a statement scrunchie or wear in a deconstructed top knot for a sophisticated style that works well as a professional daytime work look.

Luxury labels have designed versions of the scrunchie in quality fabrics for a modern take. The attention to design details also makes the pieces work well as a round the wrist bangle.
