Rag & Bone Pre-Fall lookbook

Baaaaa, I’m a sheep. Because if Rag & Bone say it’s cool, I AM IN. Their Pre-Fall 2014 look book shows us how to work it in their signature way. Their take on the scrunchie complementing the sports luxe trend kinds works, right? Or am I just blinded by their perfect jeans and Newbury boots?

Selena Gomez

Given her braid is so tight, it doesn’t look like the scrunchie is holding anything up structurally; thus, purely ornamental. So technically, it’s not that assaulting on the eyes, correct? It’s like the crop top, we were annoyed by the return of them at first because they made us have to work out again, but now… they’re kinda cute.

Demi Lovato

Demi’s here to remind us that sometimes, the scrunchie isn’t even an attention-grabbing item — it’s merely just a giant hair band for when you are wearing three-pounds of extensions.

Brit-cool label Ashish brought out the scrunchies for their S/S14 collection, proving that maybe this resurgence does have some potential cool factor. Besides, if Marc Jacobs and Missoni are into it now, it was only a matter of time.
