We may be in 2022, but some of the most divisive trends of the ’80s are still popping in a major way—XXL scrunchies being the latest example. Cool girls are rocking mullets, animal print reigns supreme, and blue eye shadow is back in a big way, but somehow scrunchies may be the most divisive among this list of trends. The scrunchie revival isn’t exactly new—celebrities and designers brought the fun hair accessory back in the late 2010s. But now scrunchies are (literally) bigger than ever—and if you haven’t yet jumped on the “oversized” bandwagon, there’s no better time than now.
Room Shop Vintage, founded by a husband-and-wife duo in Philadelphia, is credited with introducing giant scrunchies to an Instagram feed near you. The accessories, made out of deadstock satin or organza, popped up across It girl posts in early 2020, and as we make our way into spring, they’ve made a reappearance too big to ignore.
Wondering how to wear a scrunchie in 2022? There’s plenty of inspo to pull from; all it takes is a quick scroll down your Insta feed. Influencers are wrapping the delicate fabric around their wrists, using scrunchies to adorn low ponies, and lacing them into chignons. If everything you’re coming across online feels too much like a throwback to Claire’s, we found the perfect plush, oversized scrunchies you’re looking for. Ahead, find out where to buy XXL scrunchies that are equal parts cool and darling.
