It started innocently with some scrunchies from Mansur Gavriel and quickly escalated with a $400 crystal Gucci hair clip that took over Instagram. It wasn’t long until everyone started realizing they didn’t need to spend hundreds to adorn their ponytails. Barrettes, scrunchies, and headbands were after all an essential part of every middle-schooler’s wardrobe. But if you didn’t happen to hold on to all your old butterfly clips, don’t despair, there are hundreds of options online now, from beaded Free People bobby pins to a more luxurious Sophie Buhai oversized bow.
Bobby pins have never been so fun. The key to pulling off this look is wearing as many as possible—you really can’t go wrong with some bobby pin free form. A look we bet will be everywhere soon is pearl bobby pins worn all along your hairline.
Despite the outpour of accessory originality — pearl hoops and chain-linked micro bags are both having a moment — there’s one add-on that everyone agrees on: the humble hair accessory. From padded headbands and satin ribbons to bobby pins and pearl-studded barrettes, click through to see how NYC’s fashion’s elite are topping their head-to-toe designer outfits with the chic (and budget-friendly) accoutrements.
