Taking Over for the 99' and the 2000's
“Taking over for the 99 and the 2000’s.” You can be almost anywhere and bet that when this drops people just about lose their minds. In the spirit of his Cash Money predecessor, Juvenile, Drake’s 2000’s themed birthday party was 2000's era gold. From Nextel flip phones, the original Honeycomb inspired 106 & Park set to Blockbuster Video, throwback jersey's and Ed Hardy hats. Drake has never been one to half step when it comes to entertainment. This star-studded party was definitely one for the books. Guests were surrounded by all things 2000’s.
Hindsight is always 20/20. Think about your style choices back then. Flashback Friday is not always the best of times when you look back at some of younger you’s “bold” fashion statements. We know we aren’t the only ones who avoid the “On This Day” feature on Facebook. Imagine if they had one today for Myspace...
Fashion works on a pendulum swing. If it’s happened once it's bound to happen again. I’m sure you’ve heard someone older tell you there’s nothing new under the sun. They’re partly right. In fashion there isn’t a lot that’s brand new. Often, it's just recycled or reinvented. It’s the beauty of the fashion cycle, melting together trends from the past into something new and fresh. But there are certain trends we don’t want to melt back in. We should burn them and stay as far away from them as possible. Like much of the 2000’s. One of the scariest times in fashion. Now that we’re over the nostalgia of it all, let's get real about the trends that honestly should have never been a thing to begin with as well as a few we’ve seen recently that we love.
The 2000’s was a time of extra. Extra big, extra flashy, extra bedazzled, extra extra!. Embellished crystal bralets have made their way back recently and we're here for it!
Oversized candy colored frames can make you think of a ski trip but with the right shape and color it's on trend and an instant upgrade to your look!
Fishnets have had a really hard time. One minute theyre tacky the next theyre the must have layering piece. They're an inexpensive detail as we transition into fall!
Tall Tees. You may be surprised theyre on the list of trends we love but we're borrowing from the boys. Under their new name Boyfriend Tees this oversized throwback has become a staple item.
While we’ve seen some of our favorite influencers slay these looks there are a lot of trends that make us think we should we let the past be the past. Namely popcorn shirts, exposed thongs, shrugs, velour tracksuits, jersey dresses, and Ed Hardy anything. While everyone’s Halloween costumes and party attire may have given you some hope for these trends we think its best if we just let these rest in peace.
Do you remember wearing any of these? Hoping for something to make a comeback. Share your craziest 2000’s trend with us @boxbeautyco!
