Hands up if you rocked a side-pony.

Chanel Side Pony - LEAD

The fashion and beauty world's obsession with nostalgia has done us good. It's essentially given us a way to wear the trends of our childhood, but without the embarrassment. Seriously, hair barrettes have come back in style—they even showed up on the runway during Libertine's Fall/Winter presentation. Glitter is having a moment if we've ever seen one. And do we even have to bring up the phenomenon that was chokers this summer?

Well yesterday, Chanel had their Spring/Summer 2017 show, and as expected, there was beauty inspiration abound. What was not expected was that Karl Lagerfeld basically brought back the middle school side-pony.

A side-pony, we should add, that was accented with an upgraded and infinitely more chic version of our childhood charmed colorful hair-tie and a sideways baseball cap.

Now if that doesn't scream '90s, I don't know what does.

We'll either be adding this into our regular rotation or using this as inspo for some sort of nostalgic Halloween costume. Either way, thanks, Karl!
