It’s time to dig up your stash of Goody because barrettes, the hair accessory from your childhood, are making a comeback. New York Fashion Week attendees have anointed them the “it” accessory to wear.
From traditional snap clips (a trend we started seeing in 2018), to bejeweled worded clips that say words like “feelings” and “anxiety,” barrettes are a surefire way to stand out among the street style set. They’re typically worn just on one side, with hair down, and add a touch of personality to any look.
It’s a brilliantly easy, low-commitment trend to pull off: Just take your hair as is and pin one side back with an oversized, bejeweled, or colorful clip. What’s next—butterfly clips?
