The Best 90s Hair Accessories

Published

on

Throw-up-and-go hairstyles are the bread and butter of the at-home hair scene. They’re easy, foolproof and they tame hair that, at this point, is in desperate need of a stylist’s touch. Fortunately, whether you’re a top knot girl or prefer a plait, there’s a classic ’90s accessory to jazz any hair style up a bit.

Take the “claw” – or butterfly clip, as it’s otherwise known – a hair accessory beloved of Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid, both of whom swear by them. Hadid, in particular, has harnessed the power of her trusty claw throughout lockdown, pairing it with her trademark slicked-back locks. While the old brown or tortoiseshell styles (available in any good chemist) are still classics, there are now plenty of more creative options thanks to hair accessories brands such as Tort.

“When I came up with the concept of Tort, one thing I realised was that the hair claw in particular is probably one of the most useful items on our dressing tables,” says the brand’s founder Mona Ghafoori. “Whether it’s for styling hair or just something to hold it back while cleansing or applying make-up, so many of us own one: why not make it something you want to wear?” she says, highlighting the fact that our old Boots failsafes typically have a prong or two missing.

To that end, Tort offers clips in an array of different colours and sizes (the Joan is a beauty), elevating the claw and making it something you’re proud to be seen with now. Ghafoori notes that many of her clients even attach theirs to their bag strap. Sales of her bright, sparkly numbers have more than doubled since lockdown began – with fans including everyone from Camille Charriere to Laura Jackson. “It’s the perfect look for a lot of people at home… The shameful old hair claw is no more!”

Also worth reconsidering now? The humble scrunchie, which has become a staple in many of our hair routines thanks to its ability to both brighten up an up-do and protect hair from damage. Unlike normal elastic hair ties, the scrunchie prevents breakage thanks to its softness, keeping our locks in good nick. From Ganni to Versace, they can be as luxe as you like and, like their claw counterparts, have enjoyed a resurgence in the last few years.

The Best Under-$35 Sandals At Target Are Affordable & Chic, Too

Published

You know how the story goes: You go for one thing and leave with a cart-full. And though most stores still closed, shopping Target online is no different. In fact, with a newer and more visible selection you’re bound to find a slew of items on your shopping list that you may have not even needed. It turns out that one of the best under-the-radar categories worth browsing is its footwear — and there’s a slew of great sandals under $35 at Target that are majorly on-trend.

It’s no secret that Target has one of the largest women’s departments — the giant also offers a quick turnaround on trends at a crazy-good price point. The retailer is stepping up its style status with a new range of its own takes on classic footwear, from old faithfuls like chunky sandals to trendier looks like the lugged trek sandal.

This season, sporty sandals have seen a meteoric rise in popularity among the fashion set thanks to high-end brands like Prada and Chanel co-signing the trend. Cult-loved styles like Arizona Love’s Trekky sandal have also given the all-terrain style some high-fashion status cred — and Target’s taken notice. Its Nelle Sport sandals ace the hiking look and have plenty of five-star reviews in both the comfort and style category, all for just $30.

If you love a thick, lugged sole and strappy leather sling-back but not a hefty price-tag, Target’s A New Day brand aced an affordable rendition with the Rianne espadrille which comes in black, white, and tan. Or if you’re on the hunt for a sleek daily sandal that’s a touch more elevated, the $15 Marcie slide is a wearable homage to the ’90s grunge look that’s slowly but surely gaining traction right now.

Though you’ll find solid options in the wedge and heel categories as well, scroll ahead to take a gander at Target’s best flat sandals under $35.

Well, today we’re going to focus on the summer items we potentially want to ditch as we head into those warmer-weather months.

Below you’ll uncover a range of summer pieces our fashion editors will never remove from their closets given their versatile and inherently chic nature. Alternatively, you’ll also spot a selection of items our team members aren’t as into at the moment. Of course, all of this is based on personal preference—and you should always wear whatever you love, no matter what anyone says.

With all that in mind, keep scrolling to check out the items we’re into (and those we’re passing on) this summer. And if you’re shopping at the moment, you’ll also find cool summer staples to consider as well.
