Should Adults Wear Silly Bandz? Sarah Jessica Parker Thinks So.
June 23, 2010
If you’ve never heard of Silly Bandz, it’s probably because you don’t have much interaction with kids these days. The colorful, plastic novelty bracelets, shaped like animals, cowboy hats, and more, are a phenomenon with school-aged kids, and are even banned in many schools due to the distraction-factor. But the trend is making its way to adults–and by adults we mean fashion forward celebs like Sarah Jessica Parker, Mary Kate Olsen and model Agyness Deyn.
A reporter from style.com spotted Mary Kate wearing them at a resort appointment for her line The Row, British designer Henry Holland tweeted that Agyness Deyn wears Silly Bandz, while Sarah Jessica Parker has made multiple press appearances donning a neon Silly Band (a gift from her son, James Wilkie), mixed in with more fashion-forward bracelets.
They’re pretty cheap (a pack of 24 Silly Bandz goes for $4.37) and kinda fun, but would you wear them, or should this trend stay in the playground?
