Time for a throwback! The 2000s—aka the naughty noughties—brought on a slew of looks that we highkey would rather forget (two words: platform flip-flops), but the era also happened to be a treasure trove of fashion finds. Proof? These five trends from earlier in the decade, reinterpreted for 2017 by some very stylish girls. Scroll on!
No longer only for the glam, rhinestone-poppin', J.Lo-lovin' set, hoop earrings are the danglers of choice for every #aesthetic. Check out Karen Yeung's uber young and trendy, all-yellow take versus Vanesssa Hong's polished, understated elegance.
Don't worry, there'll be no candy-pink velour here. If you're going to wear a full tracksuit, you've got to commit—whether that means Liz Uy's vibrant Gucci florals or Sandara Park's sleek, all-black number.
CRAZY DENIM ON DENIM
It's 2017 and denim comes more distressed than ever, sometimes even literally crying for help via odd half-jean permutations. The chic way to layer your Levi's is by picking pieces that are raw-hemmed, haphazardly stitched patchwork-style, and jagged at the edges; and, while the noughties saw jeans slung dangerously low, 2017's waistbands sit high or right above the navel. Feel free to try on a nostalgic bootcut, though! Skinnies are taking a much-needed rest this season.
It might be your name, a phrase you live by, or simply a special someone's initial; whatever the case, everyone's back to wearing their words 'round their neck. Wax poetic!
