One of the most divisive resurgent fashion trends (aside from the fanny pack) is the scrunchie. Though it made appearances at New York Fashion Week and is lauded for preventing bad gym hair, the comeback of the ’80s and ’90s hair staple is a blessing or a curse, depending on whom you ask. (Carrie Bradshaw, for one, was no fan of the accessory in the early aughts.) But if you tap Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg for a formal opinion on the case, you’re going to get a strong ruling in favor.

“My scrunchie collection is not as large as my collar and glove collections, but scrunchies are catching up.… My best scrunchies come from Zurich. Next best, London, and third best, Rome.” —Ruth Bader Ginsburg

According to the Wall Street JournalJustice Ginsburg is not simply a fan of the scrunchie—the workout warrior is essentially a fluffy hair-tie aficionado and bona fide collector. She is wearing one in nearly every mainstream photo. “My scrunchie collection is not as large as my collar and glove collections, but scrunchies are catching up,” RBG told WSJGinsburg’s enviable scrunchie collection isn’t just run of the mill, either; she shared that she knows the ins and outs of the global scrunchie market better than most: “My best scrunchies come from Zurich. Next best, London, and third best, Rome.”

Although, sure, you could let your scrunchie obsession guide your next European vacation, you could also channel your inner notorious RBG pretty easily on Pinterest, where everyone else is going crazy over the accessory.
