Steff's Throwback Hair Tie

The good news: It is NOT a scrunchie.

The '90s might be having their fashion moment, but in my heart, the go-to decade for style inspiration will always be the '70s. Despite being a '90s child, I managed to grow up with '70s references everywhere, from Dazed and Confused, to "That '70s Show," to The Virgin Suicides.

In winter, I aim for a Jackie Burkhart-meets-Donna Pinciotti look (hello, shearling jacket and bell bottoms!), spring and fall are inspired by the middle American sportswear of the boys in Dazed and Confused (Adidas tees and Levi's) and summer means only one thing: the Lisbon sisters.

While I'm still working out the kinks of mastering the floral peasant dress -- it's a hard look to nail if you're not a waif -- this star-embellished scrunchie from Topshop is the perfect way to add a Sofia Coppola-themed nostalgia to any outfit. The good news: It looks just as good worn around a wrist as it does around a low, center-parted ponytail, too. Consider it step one in your own '70s style transformation.

Topshop Star Elastic, $6, available at Topshop.
