The last time we witnessed anyone pull off chaps, it would have been Christina Aguilera in her music video for 2002 hit "Dirrty". And it looks as if Kim Kardashian certainly felt the same way, when flaunting her own pair on her Instagram this year. While most of us would avoid a bikini and chaps combination, these two sure know how to wear it perfectly.
While Capri's typically look like an awkward in-between stage between a pant and a short, they certainly serve their purpose when it comes to transitional seasons. Paired with a matching top or with an oversized blazer, the early '00s trend is making a comeback—butterfly hair clips and all.
While ties are typically known for hiding shirt buttons, this particular '00s was all kinds of pointless, but also all kinds of amazing. Slung over the shoulders for a more laid back take, early '00s icon Avril Lavigne inspired so many with her tie and tank top combinations. Bringing back the trend, present day fashion icons like Celine Dion are bringing it back to life with a colour coordinated outfit. If Celine can do it, so can we.
Ttube tops are hardly a 2020 trend, however, they have certainly made their way back onto the fashion scene in the last couple of years. While originally paired with Bohemian skirts or low rise jeans, nowadays, style icons are pairing the iconic top with dramatic trousers, or matching them under power suits. And yes, despite the fear of accidental exposure, it looks like the trend is here to stay.
The Strapless Mini Dress
Who could forget the strapless mini? All over red carpets in the early '00s, even making an apperance in iconic flick Mean Girls, the strapless mini is back. It's hardly a surprise that Selena Gomez pulled off the look at the American Music Awards, but after all, it's hard to remember a time Gomez ever made a wrong wardrobe choice.
Halter Neck Tops
If you were around in the early '00s, you surely owned a halter top. From ring embellishments to draped satin numbers, they certainly come in all shapes and sizes. And while they're comeback has them looking all kinds of cool, who else is scarred by how hard it was to find a bra to inconspicuously wear underneath? Those were tough times.
Since most '00s trends were in need of a modern day makeover, crochet tops weren't so bad. And while Beyoncé looks amazing in anything she wears, there's something dreamy about a crochet piece that's catapulted it into it's present day Coachella-style moment. Worn as a layer or on its own, the potential for a pulled thread is almost too much to handle.
Whether they were plaited, woven or cotton, who could forget our obsession with belts. Worn over t-shirts, button downs and even dresses, mid-section belts was potentially the most pointless trend to come out of the '00s. And while we look back in disgust, modern day twists on the staple accessory have given it a fresh take, and honestly, we're in.
The mesh-era of the early '00s was controversial to say the least. If worn on it's own, it was seductive and timeless. If it was worn alongside a graphic t-shirt and Doc Marten boots, that was another story. And while we'd never imagine mesh would make a comeback, when executed like Laura Harrier at the Vanity Fair After Party, we'll definitely reconsider.
