The 2000s are not an easy time to summarize. Less classifiable than previous decades, the fashion of the 2000s is defined by a mix of different influences. From the ethnic of Middle Eastern and Asian origins to hip hop of American origin. From contamination with the world of lingerie to hints of ecology, to the growing interest in recycling.
The icons of the 2000s
We struggled for twenty years to eliminate any legacy of the 2000s from our style, but we did not come out as winners! 2000s fashion is officially IN! Here is what cannot be missing in your closet!
The 2000s were fundamental years for fashion because exponential changes have taken place, which has left their mark on the sector and on our hearts!
Names like Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Paris Hilton, and Jennifer Lopez in those years marked the lives of all of us, sporting innovative outfits and super flat bellies! In a historical period in which social media did not exist, and therefore neither did influencers, our stylistic points of reference were them! The singers, the actresses, the famous people, in short, the IT girls were our point of arrival, the stylistic goal to reach!
Between fashion shows and celebs
Today the fashion of those years is back. We find it on the catwalk, in new cult brands, worn by celebs and influencers. Nicola Brognano for Blumarine is the designer who believes in it the most, but he is not the only one. Even Balmain, Versace, Dior, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, have re-edited typical trends of the 2000s and proposed them in their spring-summer collections. Lanvin has chosen Paris Hilton, an icon of that period, as the brand’s testimonial.
As for celebs, the fondest of vintage is definitely Rihanna and Bella Hadid. The former increasingly choose garments from the past for her looks, preferring dresses from the 2000s, purchased on platforms dedicated to vintage such as Shrimpton Couture. Bella Hadid, who was 4 in 2000, embraces its funniest, most futuristic, and uninhibited spirit. Bandeau top, colored glasses with mini frames, and low waist are an integral part of her outfits. The passion for vintage is increasingly present in the lives of celebs and women in general, also thanks to the desire to experience fashion in a more eco-sustainable way (choosing items from the past means reducing waste).
What are the trends of the 2000s today?
The low waist
First of all the trend of the 2000s is the low waist, indeed very low, from which the elastic of the briefs could even emerge. A trend that we find on the Versace catwalk.
Another unforgettable trend is the total denim look, brought to the fore by Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake at the 2001 American Music Awards.
Speaking of dresses, we cannot leave out the slip dress, that is, the slip dress with thin straps. Often worn over trousers.
The crop top
Handkerchief tops and bandeau tops were the order of the day. In fact, all attention was paid to the belly: always-on display, both on the streets of the city and on the red carpets.
As for accessories, ties, belts resting on the hips decorated with studs, thin scarves, Mary Jane with high heels and platforms, flip flops, slave sandals, and micro bags.
New brands to keep an eye on
But it’s not just the big names in fashion who enjoy reworking the aesthetics of the 2000s. There are also new brands, such as Medea, Ninamounah, Nodaleto, Aya Muse, Amina Muaddi, that intercept the trends of that decade and make them of worship in our day.
