The 2000s were an iconic yet defining time period filled with new ideas in culture, politics, and most importantly- fashion. While the ancient days of AOL and CDs are well past us, there are a few fashion trends that have managed to sneak into our 2019 wardrobes. Here are the ones we’re digging:
DENIM DENIM DENIM
Who could forget this moment in fashion history? Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake turned heads at the 2001 American Music Awards sporting head to toe denim.
While we can’t get enough of this denim inspiration, we prefer to tone it down and opt for some subtlety. Gigi Hadid captured the trend perfectly earlier this year.
As for our pick, check out this denim short and bomber set from Frankie B that we love. The ombre panel detailing is unique in itself, but as a matching set it truly is a unicorn piece. This outfit as a set, or styled separately has an insane wearability factor.
FLARE & WIDE LEG
Jessica Alba wore these unique flare pants at the 2003 Teen Choice Awards. The low riding waist, cargo pockets and zip hems just scream 2000s.
While Team Outfix believes skinny jeans are timeless, wide leg and flare leg pants are having a major moment. They’re comfortable, breathable, and you won’t have to peel them off your legs after a long day. Here’s Jessica Alba again during New York Fashion Week in 2015.
Where do we begin? Velour holds a special place in our hearts. From Cheetah Girls to Paris Hilton, velour tracksuits were a part of every “It Girl” wardrobe. We’ve seen such a large influx of loungewear as street style, but in the 2000s, loungewear was better suited for lounging. At home. In your PJs. Velour was a special fashionable loophole we all enjoyed!
If the various colorways may not be your style this decade around, take Kim Kardashian’s rendition for inspiration.
We’re loving the effortlessness of this outfit. Leave it to Kim K to pull off a sweatsuit and lace up booties!
Here’s one we really did not think would make a comeback. Who could forget these eyesores? More importantly- who could forget the pain of twisting your ankles in these!
Here’s Kendall Jenner in GANNI flip flop heels. They’re a beautifully minimized version of the 2000s latter, and the material is another modern twist.
This pair by Simon Miller is minimalistic, but will add a unique flare to your ensemble whether you choose to dress up for date night or for your next shopping spree.
