11 Of The Most Iconic 2000’s Trends We’re Wearing Again

Everything to include in your 99-2000s starter kit.

Style

With the relaunch of our favorite early 2000-era television shows, the popular yet cringe-worthy fashion trends we thought were long gone and never to be spoken of again are back to remind us of a period in time that fashion was about self-expression and creativity. Millennials and Generation X'ers who grew up during the period of low-rise jeans, Baby Phat phones, and Juicy couture tracksuits are reliving their most beloved fashion moments of that time and I'm here for the throwback nostalgia. As we witness this blast from fashion's past in real-time, this is another reminder that no trend truly goes away forever and I'm so excited to have a second attempt at my favorite styles of that decade.

If your fashion sense has evolved far away from your teen years, then let's have fun and take a walk down memory lane as I prepare you for what's soon to appear on your Instagram feed through your favorite celebrities and fashionistas. Here is a collective of 11 early 2000s trends I'm implementing into my current wardrobe in 2020.

Overly Exposed

Once made popular by the biggest pop stars of the early 2000s, the exposed thong trend is getting a severe 2020 makeover. For those who love to leave a little more to the imagination, contemporary brands are creating the illusion of exposed skin built into their designs for a classier spin on this super chic look.

Two-Piece Bangs

As seen in every high school photo of my younger self, bangs were definitely a go-to choice with every hairstyle. Made popular by almost every celebrity from Destiny's Child, Brandy, Monica, and every female singer/rapper/actor in between, try this late 90's-2000's hair trend on your next night out for a sophisticated throwback look.

Bucket Hats

Bucket hats are a revolving trend that never really goes out of style. Let your hair down while pairing with a casual sporty outfit or your favorite basics while out and about for the ultimate comfy cool look.

Low-Rise Jeans

The low-rise trend is one we could have left in the early 2000s however, I'm using this bold denim style as motivation to lose this excess quarantine weight gain. As the super low cut hip-hugging style is making its rounds yet again, I don't suggest giving up your high waist mom jeans just yet as I can't see this style being here to stay for long.

French Tips

French tips are a nail design that most if not all women have worn at least once in our lifetime. For a more modern look, give it an asymmetrical design to add more to this classic style.

Put It On Thick Like MAC Lip Gloss

With masks being a mandatory outfit staple this year, it's pretty convenient that the most recent resurgence of multiple layers of lip gloss has made its way back into the latest beauty trends. Add a mid to dark brown colored lip liner for fall to achieve fuller, glossier lips.

Hair Flip

For an iconic gravity-defying hairstyle, it's nothing but a hair flip. I'm looking forward to repeating this throwback hair trend through 2021 for a super modelesque vintage flair. Perfect for a chic night out, dress this hairstyle up with a side bang and pony or wear it down with a middle part for an even sexier sleek look.

Juicy Couture Tracksuits

Worn by celebrities from street style paparazzi photos, to music videos and our favorite pop culture films of the early 2000s, if you didn't own a Juicy Couture velour tracksuit you desperately wanted one in every color. Created to be as flattering as possible with chic comfortability in mind, these athleisure tracksuits are making their way back with modern edge and day to night capabilities.

NASCAR Jackets

The motorsport trend has slowly made its way back onto the scene; so it's no surprise the oversized Nascar jackets are on my radar making a fast track towards the fall/winter season. Fashion girls are taking a cue from the high-speed athleisure look paired with slouchy denim jeans and sneakers or biker shorts and combat boots for a casual-cool daytime look.

Trucker Hats

No early 2000s trend could make its way back into 2020 without mentioning the Von Dutch trucker hat. Made infamous for its popular logo and celebrities adorned from head to toe with hats, handbags, baby tees and low rise patch jeans, this once popular brand has remained dormant until its recent resurgence on insta-famous celebrities.

Dior Sunglasses

Featured in your favorite music videos of the late 90's and early 2000's, the lightly tinted Dior sunglasses are having another major fashion moment. Although we're going into the colder months, keep your eye on these oval-shaped frames to hit another peak summer 2021.

We’ve all been there: Exhausted, lacking motivation, on edge, or simply not feeling like working at all. And we might have even used up all of our sick days, not to rest from a cold or injury, but just to get a bit of relief from those job or business responsibilities. Sometimes, you're not able to shake that nagging feeling of gloom, eventually finding yourself in a toxic pattern of unhealthy habits and behaviors. There's a larger issue that goes way beyond just needing a break.

There seems to be a big question mark over our heads when it comes to sex during pregnancy. When ironically enough, the same way the baby got in is the same way it’s going to get out (in a lot of ways). A wise person said that to me – I just can’t recall who, so consider this to be a shoutout to a real one because in all actuality it’s true.
