WORDS BY JOSEPH FURNESS
It’s official: 00s fashions are back. The era of Britney’s breakdown, handbag dogs and Paris Hilton aplenty, was all about glitz and glam. And just 9 years later, we're ready to relive the decade all over again — but this time, without the chunky highlights.
From Juicy Couture tracksuits to rhinestone tees, 2000s trends are all about having fun. And with the likes of Bella Hadid and Ariana Grande already sporting the trends — the latter’s ‘Thank U, Next’ video paying homage to 2004’s Mean Girls — we’re all aboard the 00s bandwagon.
So, if you’re looking to step up your style, we suggest you get nostalgic and invest in some of the following 00s fashion throwbacks.
1. Hoop Earrings
Channel Jenny from the Block with a pair of 00s-sized hoop earrings. And nothing says ‘used to have a little, now I have a lot’ than a Medusa-embellished pair by Versace.
2. Crop Tops
Keira Knightley at the 2003 Pirates of the Carribean: Curse of the Black Pearl premiere is the reference. So fetch.
3. Bodycon Dresses
Yes, ok, bodycon dresses have always been a thing. But we’re talking the short, tight bodycon dresses that the likes of Victoria Beckham used to wear and international sweethearts such as Lily James are now resurrecting.
4. Cowboy Boots
These boots are made for walkin’. One of the first 00s fashions that kick-started the comeback; the cowboy boot trend is best done in animal print for 2019.
5. Rhinestone T-Shirts
The ultimate statement fashion of the 00s era was a rhinestone t-shirt — even Kim K was repping them back in the day. Remember, the busier and bolder, the better.
6. Dior Saddle Bags
What goes around (goes around, goes around) comes all the way back around. Once again the IT bag of the world, the Dior Saddle bag is your golden ticket to getting papped at fashion week.
7. Rose-tinted Sunglasses
Girly pinks are back and loaded with more empowering connotations than ever before. The best pink 00s accessory to wear rn? A pair of rose-tinted sunglasses. (Yes, we’re aware of the irony.)
8. Velour Tracksuits
Nothing is more 00s fashion than a velour tracksuit: especially the midriff-exposing, bubblegum-blue type that Britney Spears sported shopping circa 2003. Comfort levels 100.
9. Low-rise Jeans
Another 00s Keira Knightley go-to; the low-rise jean is back. Why? Because Bella Hadid said so.
