Were the accessories memorable in the 2000s?

For me, one of the most memorable parts of the 2000s was how extra the accessories were. Read more below if you want to see the hippest accessories from this period.

Key trends

Frosted Lip Gloss

Remember the little tubes we had with the thick sticky lip gloss that we used to wear ALL THE TIME? I remember I would put this on every few hours and be happy with the sticky sensation on my lips. I was too young to be dating but I would imagine this would be super weird to kiss someone and have all this sticky stuff on my mouth.

Butterfly clips

I thought this trend was so cute, to be honest. It was so innocent and sweet. When I went to junior school I remember lots of my friends used to wear these in their hair and looking back I think it was super adorable. Nowadays everyone is so sophisticated and chic so I don’t think there really is much of a place for these clips now. Maybe I’m wrong.

Rhinestones

Rhinestones were in – okay. They were popular for proms and everyday accessories and they were everywhere you went. I don’t think that I ever really indulged in this style as it’s a bit gaudy for my liking. I enjoy very simplistic, delicate jewellery and I don’t like brooches or anything of the sort. But… It definitely does have its place so just ignore me if you like this trend.

Trucker Hats

Trucker hats are super fun and they were hugely popular in the 2000s. Von Dutch hats were also very fun to wear. I have one or two myself and they can make any outfit cooler and edgier.

Livestrong Bracelets

By the time I wanted to start wearing these they started to stop being so readily available. I knew so many adults who wore these who were athletic and it was always something I wanted but never wanted it enough to get them.

Shutter Shades

These shades made no sense to me at all. But Kanye West didn’t really care about that did he? As a trendsetter, you don’t really need to make sense at first but then after a while when more people to start following your trend then you sort of become the cool one. So I guess it balances itself out.

Fedoras

My queen Blair Waldorf loved her fedoras. She just had a timeless elegance to her that made her shine when everyone else sometimes looked kitsch. If I had to wear a fedora I would look very silly but Blair just looks like such a boss. This is why she is my fashion icon.

Unnecessary scarves

Come on – where did this trend even come from? Firstly, these are not practical! You cannot get warmer wearing this. What were you even thinking? This whole trend just makes me roll my eyes and go yeah this makes total sense… Not. If you have photos where you have followed this style and you think you look good – please, send them through – I really would love for you to change my mind about this.

Oversized hoops

I think there will always be a place for oversized trends. They demand attention and they can be elegant, extravagant or just hectic depending on the style you wear. I’ve never really tried to wear this style but as I said it’s because I like more soft, subtle jewellery. But if you like this style – go you!

Fishnet stockings

I adored this trend. Jenny Humphrey from Gossip Girl always wore fishnet stockings and she always looked freaking edgy as hell. I was so jealous of her style sometimes because only she could look that good being grunge in a show full of preppy people. These types of stockings are really cool because you get so many different variations and they can really make a normal outfit stand out a little bit more.

Neckties as belts

I thought I would end off this article by looking at this necktie trend that gorgeous Avril Lavinge started. She really is such a cool chick and I think everyone had a girl crush on her. I mean there is nothing complicated about that right??

I think this trend was just outrageous – but I feel like this was the 2000s summed up. Anything went and the odder the attire, the more likely it was to become a trend.

Let me know what your favourite trends were from this time in the comments below!

Why did low-rise jeans kill me in the 2000s?

What was it about low-rise jeans that they became the hallmark of 2000s trends? They were absolutely horrific and not to mention that not very inclusive for everyone. Firstly, they’re uncomfortable. You can’t sit without worrying about what’s showing and really who has time to gym so much that their abs are rock hard 24/7? I definitely don’t.

Besides that, high-waisted jeans are in and so are crop tops. It would look ridiculous to wear low-rise jeans and a crop top now. I mean you would have your whole torso on display… Shakes head in horror.

I was too young to even be focused on fashion at this age, but if I had been I really hope I wouldn’t have followed this trend too closely.

Like I have no problem with you showing your stomach. You show whatever you want to show – but you’re doing clothes an injustice. There are so many beautiful blouses and tops out there for you to be just neglecting that part of your outfit “sobs in the corner.”

Maybe I’m being dramatic – I say this to myself multiple times a day. But if shops start selling high-waisted jeans and replacing them with low-rise jeans there is going to be an uprising. Let’s hope that day doesn’t ever happen.

Hope you guys enjoyed this!

Assymetrical skirts are cool. Their so sophisticated and trendy and they just scream awesome. Like I really want the pink and olive one like yesterday already. Anyways, you should know that these can be worn in summer and winter and their super versatile. If you get them in the darker colours then they can be your wardrobe essential all year round. #winning #savingmoney

Cause I’m all about that saving money life yo. You should check out stores like Forever 21, Forever New, Superbalist, ZANDO, H&M and Zara for skirts like these. Their also available at other retailers like Woolworths, Mr Price, Jet. Their everywhere really. You should really give this trend a try and as you can see there are so many cool ways to style this.

Where did the jeans and dresses trend go?

We are taking a dive back into the 2000s. Why did the most strange styles come out of them? Were there any good styles that appeared? Lets check it out below. 

Remember when dresses and jeans were a thing? I do. I was about 10 years old and they just took over the whole of Constantia. Women everywhere were wearing them and all the cool moms wore this style. My own mom sort of looked down on this style (again I shall not be acknowledging the link to where I got my sassiness from). We used to always gossip about these women and their “bad taste”.

To be fair this style is quirky. It’s not the usual but I think it has its place. I think if done properly it can be really awesome.

I feel like celebs fuelled this trend and I’m going to showcase some guilty ones here.

I dig the shiny black pants with this black shift dress and fluffy jacket. It’s really simplistic but it still stands out. The attention shifts to the fluffy jacket rather than the pants which I think is perfect. If they are not the main part of the outfit then they can really work.

This interpretation is a bit more bold. Using light blue jeans with this dress make it hard not to notice. What I do like is her hair styling. It’s sophisticated and makes the outfit look chic rather than sloppy.

Nicole Ritchie just has the confidence to pull this off. She knows she looks dope. And I can appreciate that. If you know that you are gonna look amazing then do it.

Tori looks very fun in this edgy outfit. I really like how she looks so comfortable in this. It makes it all work. Also you can always win me over with metallic, glittery colours.

Great job ladies! Reviving trends may be uncomfortable for a while but you can definitely do it. And being a trend-setter isn’t always the worst label to have.

Mariah rocked this shiny black dress and she definitely made being a witch look sexy as hell…

Are you an angel?

Alessandra-Ambrosio-x (1)

Damn! Alessandra Ambrosio as the devil is the sexiest thing I’ve seen all day. Great job on the costume.

Dare to be a demon?

Nicole Scherzinger made a bold choice by being a demon. It’s not the most common costume but she looks awesome. I love the cutout detail of the dress. Goes with the whole haunted theme.

Taking it to a ghostly dimension

These contact lenses and this white face just make me uncomfortable. Sometimes, people just look too scary for my liking. But if that’s your thing then go ahead!

These two cuties look adorable as Aubrey Hepburn & Marilyn Manroe. I just cannot deal. Want to take so many photos of these munchkins!!

Kim K has always loved her Halloween costumes and this one is great. I mean come on – Cher! Definitely a winner!

Madonna & Michael Jackson

I didn’t realise that Michael Jason was actually a girl. Kourtney and Kim stepping it up as MJ and Madonna respectively!

I’m a huge Stranger Things fan and Eleven is such a boss of a character. (I think I know what I’m gonna wear this Halloween haha). She rocks this outfit. Guess I’m gonna have to find a blonde wig…

ebfce325866a3838380f21beb4ad10af

WOW! Talk about effort. Firstly, what is this girls workout routine? To fit into that outfit and look that good is just unfair haha. Jokes aside though; this couple’s outfit is Halloween Goals!

Harley Quinn & The Joker

suicide-squad-halloween-758x505

Not the biggest fan of this pairing. What with Harley’s very toxic relationship with the Joker and all. But besides that I guess it is a fun Halloween costume and makes for a really cool Insta feed. #doingitforinsta

Scooby Doo Gang

Yaaasss! I dig this so much. The gangs coming down to solve a mystery! Even Scooby made an appearance. Just yes.

Alice and Wonderland

To end off I thought maybe we could all look at Alice. She’s great really. Doing her own thing, climbing down the rabbit hole. That’s one independent girl yo. Besides that, her outfit is super sexy.

 

So I hope you guys enjoyed this article. I enjoyed researching all these costumes and it has made me so hyped up for the Halloween costume I am going to. NEED to buy a wig now.

Okay byeee!
