The great fashion designer Gianni Versace once said: "I'm not interested in the past, except for the influence it has on the future." In the case of the very modern retro hair accessories, the past, as the name suggests, plays a big role Role. Because this trend pays homage to fashion and its history. Whether the sparkling, oversized velvet bow or the plastic clip - each individual accessory stands for its own era. And above all, it has one thing: a lot of power. Why? These small objects give super simple outfits an exciting twist. Clear the stage for the most nostalgic fashion trend of autumn.
Corn oui. The typical French hats never really go out of style. This autumn, headgear, also known as a beret, is worn in bright colors and made of knit like shrimp or crocheted like Gucci. A look back: In the 15th century, Europeans wore barrets for the first time, demonstrating a certain education.
Brigitte Bardot, the queen of girlish hair accessories, not only wore bows with grace, but also hairbands in the 1960s. The fall 2021 hairbands pay homage to the 1960s. Such a retro hair accessory was seen on the catwalk, for example at Erdem. And the Amsterdam label Atélier des Femmes, known for its scrunchies and big bows, has great models in its range.
In the meantime, scrunchies have been on the scene again for so long that hardly anyone remembers how strange the comeback of this often ridiculed accessory was. In the 1980s and 1990s, the fabric-covered hair ties were the fashion piece du jour. At some point, their time was over and whoever wore the retro hair accessory afterward was often misunderstood. What a pity. Because actually, those who wore scrunchies before their big comeback in the 2010s were the real avant-gardists. And now for now: In autumn 2021, the retro hair accessory will be available in soft, muted tones, made of great materials and with exciting patterns. Organza variants in maxi format and scrunchie scarfs, which were already in great demand in summer, are particularly popular. You can get scrunchies everywhere now (again). You will also find what you are looking for at Henriette von Grünberg, Ganni, & Other Stories, and many more.
Oh, the late 1990s. Anyone who was a child back then will remember: Life was beautiful. There were mixed bags for 50 pfennigs, spaghetti tops, baby G-watches, pacifier chains, and plastic hair clips. The latter is among the hottest retro hair accessories of autumn 2021. The Danish stylist Mie Juel proves how elegant the clips with Nineties flair can look with models from Chanel.
Even in autumn 2021, we can't get enough of XXL bows, oversized bows. This retro hair accessory was fashionable in the 1960s but also in the 1980s. The materials for the cold season: velvet, also decorated with stones, bouclé fabric, or linen. Very large models, which ideally cover almost the entire head, ensure maximum attention. If already, because already! Even if XXL bows are larger than ordinary hair bows, they are relatively small given the power that lies in these small pieces of clothing. Thanks to the XXL Bow and its colleague presented here: inside every "normal" denim-sweater look is exciting. Small, but powerful ...
