Fashion is as important a concept as the technology and history of that period for us to understand the perception of a period. In addition, our perception of fashion trends is changing much faster day by day. Since it was fashionable 1 year ago, we can forget many things that came into our lives right away and find them outdated. However, in addition to these, clothes that were outdated in some periods can re-enter our lives. The almost complete return of 90’s Fashion Trends to our lives can be a very good example of this. But the 2000s outfits were very difficult years in terms of fashion. You ask why? For such a question, you must have never seen photos of your mothers and sisters, especially from the early 2000s. Low waist trousers, thin eyebrows, metallic lipsticks, clutch collars…
What Were Popular at the 2000s Fashion?
There are many types of clothing that again entered our lives in the 2000s fashion. I have listed some of them for you. You can take a look before you start reading the article.
- Tank Tops
- Crop Tops
- Rise Jeans
- Skinny Jeans
- Cargo Pants
- Bootcut Jeans
- Ugg boots
- Platform boots
- Oxford shoes
- Wedge Mules
Let’s go back to the early 2000s when oversized belts were used, low waist jeans were indispensable, printed, bright color and short crop tops were worn by almost everyone, snap fasteners, claw clips, handcrafted earrings, and necklaces were used as accessories.
Tops and Suits
Let’s start by reviewing the 2000s fashion tops and suits first. There are many different styles of tops popular in the 2000s fashion. These include many different categories such as tank tops, crop tops, corsets, etc. How would you like to examine all of them closely and master the 2000s fashion?
Tank Tops of 2000s Fashion
I think it would be good for all of us in terms of fashion if the tank top stays in the early 2000s. These athlete-looking tops not only show our proportions wrong but also look like an athlete, as I said at the beginning.
We even witnessed that these tops were worn several at once. This look, which I might call “Layered Tank Tops” was one of the most indispensable trends of the 2000s fashion. Unfortunately…
Crop Tops of 2000s Fashion
Secondly, let’s examine the crop tops, which I believe look much more stylish. Crop tops actually existed in the 90’s fashion. It continued its influence in the mid 2000s without losing speed. It is quite popular even today’s fast fashion brand’s collections. Also, I think crop tops should definitely stay in the fashion industry forever.
Especially these patterned cute crop tops look suitable for 2000s fashion. You can create 2000s vibes with a pair of jeans that you can wear with these crop tops, some of which are just patterned and some with cartoon prints.
Also, lace or sequin crop tops were born to exist in the 2000s!
Corset Tops of 2000s Fashion
Another 2000s fashion is these corset tops. Although the corset top adaptations of the early 2000s were not appealing to the eye, it should be noted that there are quite successful adaptations in 2022.
What I can say about corset tops is how great they look with blue jeans. On the other hand, I am sure that it will look glamorous with a skirt that is compatible with a corset top.
Juicy Couture of 2000s Fashion
As you know, Juicy Couture is actually a clothing brand. “Juicy Couture is a premium marketplace for athletics and lifestyle apparel, accessories and more” according to their website.
In the 2000s, it became synonymous with velvet tracksuits, which celebrities such as Paris Hilton, Kardashians, and Britney Spears started to wear constantly and everywhere.
Jeans and Pants of 2000s Fashion
Although the year 2000 seemed like a new era, it was still under the influence of the 90’s fashion since it came after 1999. In the 2000s fashion, capri pants and low-rise jeans/trousers (unfortunately) had become a new trend.
Low-Rise Jeans of 2000s Fashion
Did someone say low-rise jeans? Yeah, of course, the first topic is low-rise jeans. I think it is because when someone says 2000’s fashion, automatically the first thing that comes to mind is low rise jeans. In addition to the low-waisted trousers’ aesthetic appearance, a belt was stubbornly attached to those low-waisted trousers. And It is obvious that also belts are far from aesthetics.
In addition to these, I would like to talk about low waist trousers that I like. This outfit that Beyoncé wore at her concert in 2000 is among the iconic outfits of the time.
Skinny Jeans of 2000s Fashion
It was as if skinny jeans have always been in our lives. It was as if there were some skinny jeans accompanying us in every outfit. Of course, the 2000s fashion could not give up on tight jeans.
Also, pocket-patterned jeans were very popular. In another photo, you can see Khloe Kardashian in a skinny jeans outfit. Skinny jeans can actually look much better as the 2000s progressed (for instance, this photo is from 2016) and the waist of the pants got higher.
Cargo Pants of 2000s Fashion
Cargo pants were also a big part of early 2000s fashion. In recent years, we have witnessed the return of cargo pants with more updated versions. I think these new versions look pretty stylish. You can also make very cool outfits by getting one.
After a little research, I learned that cargo pants were loose-fitting pants originally designed for demanding outdoor activities. However, cargo pants have also become popular in urban areas, as they are suitable for carrying items during day trips.
Bootcut Jeans of 2000s Fashion
Bootcut jeans were the essential trousers of the early 2000s fashion. Actually, even though I want to say they don’t look bad, I think they feel out of date because of their denim color.
Also, if you look carefully at the photos, you can see that many celebrities are wearing the tank top I mentioned at the beginning of the article. In addition to these, bootcut jeans have turned into a very beautiful model that is now available in every brand. I think it had to happen in order for it to become what it is today.
Skirts and Dresses of 2000s Fashion
In another category of 2000’s fashion, our subject is skirts and dresses. Mini denim skirts, jeans worn pointlessly under the dress, and T-shirts worn with dresses were indispensable in these years.
Denim Mini Skirts of 2000s Fashion
In the early 2000s fashion, mini denim skirts were very popular. Of course, these skirts were low-waisted again. In addition, these denim skirts usually had a narrow cut. On the other hand, some varieties of denim skirts still exist. But in terms of style, they are much different from those times. Just look at the photos. You can see the difference.
Maxi Skirts of 2000s Fashion
Friends, I’m sorry, but yes, there was exactly such a skirt fashion. These skirts reminded me of a more bohemian style. Although I do not know the name of this skirt model, I think it can be called a bohemian maxi skirt.
While I was writing this article, I can say that I got used to the low waist of everything, but I still couldn’t understand the waist of these skirts. Does anyone want to see this skirt in street styles again in the days when everything is in fashion again?
Dresses over Jeans
Yes, the most important outfit in this category is the dresses worn with jeans or pants. These outfits, which give the impression of “I wore everything I found at home”, are really brain-burning. I specifically wanted to include Ashley Tisdale in the photos because she seems really confused in the early 2000s…
Miley Cyrus was also among those who liked to wear dresses over jeans. I remember seeing this outfit often in Hannah Montana. Good old days though…
Cowl Neck Dresses of 2000s Fashion
According to my research, Paris Hilton celebrated her 21st birthday in London with this cowl neck dress completely covered with Swarovski stones.
Cowl neck dresses are still a very preferred model. On the other hand, in the 2000s, the cowl neck model was a much more low-cut model. You had to cover it with tape because your nipple could be seen.
2000s Fashion: Shoes
The 2000s fashion also had quite a variety of alternatives in the shoe category. In addition, the most active area of this sector was shoe designs. Although there are many types of shoe models, I will talk about the most memorable models.
Boots named UGG were worn by many celebrities in the 2000s and turned into popular shoes of that time. Like everything else, there are those who don’t like UGG boots as much as those who love them.
I’m on the undecided side. It actually looks very stylish, but it also looks a bit like a house boot.
Platform Boots of 2000s Fashion
Platform boots were also indispensable in the 2000s fashion. I think it is not suitable for street fashion as it is difficult to use in daily life. But it can be a great choice of shoes to complete the concept outfits.
Oxford-type shoes became very popular during the 2000s for both men and women. There are also different variations of these shoes, either suede or perforated.
Y2K Fashion: Accessories
I can say that the fashion of the 2000s was successful in terms of accessories. I think there were some very stylish details that appealed to the eye. We can understand this from the fact that we are still fondly using some early 2000s trends in 2022.
Von Dutch Trucker Hats
Von Dutch is a fashion brand created in the early 2000s by the famous French designer Christian Audigier.
It has become one of the most preferred and desired brands of the 2000s fashion. Especially trucker hats of every color, pattern, and variety were an accessory frequently used by celebrities.
Baguette Bags!! Who doesn’t love these bags? It is a very cute bag model with both appearance and small size. For example, in the first photo, Sarah Jessica Parker’s baguette bag is a very popular model even now.
Fendi is always way ahead of its time when it comes to baguette bags. I think this iconic brown bag will never go out of style. In the second photo, according to my research on the internet, this baguette bag is Fendi’s iconic baguette bag from the early 2000s is an embellished style for 2019 Spring-Summer.
Louis Vuitton Bags
We all know how popular the Louis Vuitton brand is. The fashion of the 2000s seems to have benefited greatly from this. Especially this large “bowling bag” model was not falling into the hands of everyone at that time.
Another popular model in Louise Vuitton model bags was the box-shaped ones. When you do a little research on the internet, you can easily see many different models and types of these model bags.
Belly chains were indispensable complementary accessories of crop tops. I think a thin chain makes the body look pretty elegant. Perhaps there is no celebrity who does not use these belly chains. They were seen everywhere from stage costumes to special occasions.
Belly chains made a big comeback and became one of the elegant accessories of the present time. How about adding coolness to your outfit by buying one now?
Large and ostentatious necklaces are indicative of the early 2000s fashion. Mixed and stacked round bead necklaces were also popular jewelry of that period.
I couldn’t close the topic of 2000s fashion accessories without mentioning the colorful sunglasses. Back then, everyone had these sunglasses in their eyes.
Also, I have exactly such sunglasses. Although it is not exactly in fashion right now, I keep the glasses waiting for the day when they will be in fashion again.
Hairpins and Hairclips
The latest title in accessories is hairpins! Butterfly clasps, snap clasps, and much more determined hairstyles in the 2000s.
Colorful, assorted hairpins and hair clips look pretty fun for adding a cool vibe to the hair.
2000s Fashion Hairstyle and Makeup
The early 2000s were successful in hairstyles. Many different models have successfully survived those days and consolidated their place in the fashion world. In addition to these new hairstyles, of course, the influence of the 90s fashion on hairstyle continued. Also, the makeup trends of those years were include very shiny details.
First, I’ll talk about straight hair, which is a classic. Although straight hair was a timeless model, the difference was that it was straightened to the point of sticking to the head without leaving the slightest roughness.
Also, a ponytail with bangs pulled back in a tiny clip was very popular in those 2000s fashion.
Parting the hair in a zigzag was one of the coolest styles of the 2000s.
Another popular hairstyle was curled hair at the roots and straight at the ends. I think the hair looks very unhealthy and unkempt with this model.
Gathering the hair or fastening it with a hairpin and removing two strands from the front was exactly the hairstyle of the 2000s.
I can clearly remember how popular crimped hair was. Back then, those who had this hairstyle would look very cool. Now I have news for you: I think the crimped hairstyle is making a comeback.
With the effect of the colorful 2000s, eyeliner was used in every shade except black.
As for the eyebrow model, it was a complete disaster. The eyebrows were as thin as possible, raised and curved. The aim was to draw all the attention to the face and especially to the eyes.
A bronzed look was just one of the 2000s fashion trends. Either bronzer was poured over the entire face or foundations were used 1-2 tones darker.
Pink and red cheeks were something you could always see. A lot of blush was used.
2000’s Movie Outfits
2000’s movies have very colorful and chic outfits. Also, these movies that I am going to talk about are the movies that influence all teenage girls. I really enjoy when searching and I think you are going to enjoy it too. I’m not going to add gossip girl here because I’m sure that you already watched it ?
The 2001 movie Legally Blonde also featured some of the best clothing fashions of the time. For example, this pink leather suit is an outfit that even someone who hasn’t seen the movie has seen somewhere. The heart necklace in the second photo also looks like a very catchy and iconic piece.
I love this pink halter neck dress. On the other hand, the belt-detailed blue skirt and crop top also look great as part of the 2000s fashion.
Mean Girls is another movie that came into our lives in 2004. The black color top tank and baguette bag seem to fit the spirit of the 2000s. Also, all the girls use baguette bags. In another photo, Regina’s “A Little Bit Dramatic” tank top and leather skirt are one of the Mean Girls’ most memorable outfits.
13 Going on 30
13 Going on 30 is also a 2004 movie. The dress in the first photo is absolutely gorgeous. The fact that the outfit had no details that looked bad and that it looked so great inspired me a lot. I love anything colorful.
In addition, many people were inspired by the clothes in the movie and managed to adapt these clothes to our day.
High School Musical
Is there anyone who hasn’t watched High School Musical? High School Musical, one of the most legendary movies on Disney Channel, is also a good movie to experience the 2000s. On the subject of clothing, it can be said that it contains all the clichés of the 2000s.
Freaky Friday is a 2003 drama-comedy film. The outfits in this movie are a little different than the others. We can remember punk fashion with this choker, chunky belt, and giant pants. I can also say that the Avril Lavigne style is reflected.
Celebrities with 2000s Fashion
While talking about the 2000s fashion, we often witnessed the photographs of celebrities from that year. So you want more outfit inspiration from red carpet and streets? We can take a look at a few of the iconic celebrities of 2000s fashion.
In addition, the company “Getty Images” has many photos of celebrities on its site.
The first of these celebrities are, of course, Paris Hilton. Throughout this article, we took a look at quite a few of her outfits. All of them reflected the 2000s fashion very well. In the first photo, you can see the most popular tracksuit outfit of the period. In the second photo, the stony belt and blue leather jacket she wears on her mini skirt look very cool.
Paris Hilton still continues to reflect the 2000s fashion. Her other outfit is this long low waist skirt and a floral crop top. Finally, I really like your hair in another photo. Low waist trousers are obviously not my preference, but look stylish with this bikini top.
Christina Aguilera is another 2000s fashion celebrity. I think she is a very tasteful woman with many different styles of clothes. The first photo features a crop top and midi skirt outfit. I can say that the rope detail on the waist is the best thing chosen to complete the combination. Such a small detail adds elegance to the elegance of the whole outfit. The second outfit has a crop top again. This time she wore low waist purple and leather trousers with low-cut detail on the sides. I know, these pants have a lot of details, right? I have to say it looks AWESOME.
In this photo, however, she has taken on a completely different style. Her curly and colorful updo hair and makeup are so 2000s. On top of it, there is the corset top that I mentioned at the beginning of the article. Finally, of course, this outfit is completed with low waist pants. In another photo, she’s wearing the crop top I mentioned earlier. Underneath, she wears sweatpants with her waist rolled up. I think she wanted to make the tracksuit as low-waisted as possible. Also, the bandana she wore on her hair was used a lot in the 2000s.
Britney Spears was among the most famous names of her time. So we can take a look at some of her outfits together. In the first photo, there is a matching denim hat and trousers. Trousers with wash-in-the-legs are, of course, a part of the 2000s. I’m guessing he’s wearing another long sleeve bodysuit inside his “I Want Candy” t-shirt. The 2nd photo features a neon-bright crop top.
Were there any celebrities in the 2000s who didn’t wear these velvet sweatpants? Britney Spears has definitely made a unique outfit of Juicy Couture tracksuits.
In this video, you can find the top 10 fashion trends that were trending from 2000-to 2010 and are now making a comeback. The video also includes scenes from many movies and TV shows. I think it’s a good video for inspiration.
And I regret to say that we are coming to the end of this article. I hope I was able to convey the 2000s in a fun and inspiring way. Besides that, I leave this site for you to review for more information, inspiration, and returning early 2000s trends.
