20 years ago, the fashion sense was on a whole different level. I would largely describe it as fleshy. Low rise jeans combined with ‘boob scarfs’ or cut-up crop tops was just the beginning. Of course, there was plenty of other trends thrown in there… some of which are most definitely re-appearing!
I mean, that is one way to get some attention… not one I fancy trying though. Plus, how on earth were they comfy? Surely not. I personally like to opt for a high-waist on pretty much any garment, mainly because I enjoy being able to hide my food baby after I’ve done some impeccable scranning. You certainly wouldn’t get away with it in a pair of these bad boys.
Dresses over Jeans
Why. That dress would be lovely had she worn it as an individual item, why spoil it my putting some bulky jeans on underneath… I mean they’re not even skinny!!! It can’t have offered much in regards to flattering silhouettes either… it’s like having a VPL (Visible pant line) but on steroids.
I mean these are great… if you are 12 but wearing these in the grand stage of adulthood, you need to re-assess your thoughts. Thankfully, it is a rarity that our eyes are opened to such monstrosities in this day and age… please, please, please keep it that way. If you have a pair, burn them!
Honestly, I don’t think this is too bad. The bottom half of her outfit is questionable but we won’t mention that. The logic of wearing a scarf with a thin-strapped camisole isn’t all there but generally, it doesn’t look horrendous. Looking at it away from logic, it just appears like a large necklace, an oversized accessory. I’ll give this one a 7/10.
Sometimes you’re a winner, sometimes you’re a loser. The trend on a whole was very hit and miss but it was the 2000s and let’s be honest, it’s not half as outrageous as some we’ve seen. Plus, if anyone was going to pull it off, Kim Kardashian would be the one.
Juicy Couture Tracksuits
Not a lover. Much like the low-cut jeans, I just don’t understand it. Yes, these are much comfier but if I’m going to wear a tracksuit, this is not going to be first on my list. Now this is a fashion trend that never truly left us and is most definitely on a lot of wish-lists in 2021. However, the main improvement now is that the main bulk are high waisted – I highly praise that!!
Ahhh the shawl. I owned one of these and don’t see the problem at all. This is a trend that’s been popular for hundred’s of years and why not… sometimes you can get nippy when wearing a dress and all you need is to cover your shoulders. In fact, I love shawls so much that it well be high up on my list for whenever we may be allowed out again.
When I say that this was probably the most PG skirt I found for this trend, I mean it. If I walked out in one of these, it would be highly probable that I’d be disowned. I applaud anyone who had the courage to wear one of these to be honest because plenty of them resembled a belt more than a skirt. You would have had to have some serious trust in the material to wear them past your front door.
Split bottom tops
No, no, no. This outfit just screams ‘Early 2000s’ doesn’t it. Heavy eyeliner, strange top and low cut jeans. This look is not the one and I’m glad it understood it’s place in life… far, far away from us all.
I mean this trend will probably never die, it’s just a cap after all. The thing that has changed is the way that we wear them. Back in 2001, celebs were taking them to the red carpets, we were wearing them with dresses and let’s be honest with ourselves, that isn’t how they’re meant to be worn. In this modern age, they’re still fashionable but we’re just much more sensible with our pairings.
