When you think of the early 2000s and their fashion trends, does it make you cringe? Do you begin to get a sick vision of UGGS, velour track suits, and denim on denim crimes? If you said yes to all of these, you are human. But today, I want to show you the significance of this time period of fashion crimes and even the top two “don’ts” can be incorporated beautifully into todays trends.
DENIM ON DENIM
Ah yes, the legendary Canadian tuxedo. Many say it’s the worst thing that you can possibly do, but in my opinion, it genius! No, i’m not just saying that because my favorite couple *cough* Justin and Britney *cough* made one of the most iconic looks with it back in 2001. To me, denim on denim symbolizes strength and durability. The denim on denim look adds androgyny to your outfit delivering the perfect mix between masculinity and femininity. To make a denim on denim outfit less drab simply accessorize! There is no right or wrong here. Minimal jewelry adds a simple clean look while statement jewelry creates a fun, flirty, and playful look. What can really make or break your outfit depends on the shoes. A bold pair of pumps, heels, or even a clean pair of sneakers can help you complete the look.
It is true a shame that such a beautiful design has been so overlooked throughout these past few years. Flared denim has been in our fashion history for decades and I refuse to see it die. Flared denim is a huge essential to have in all closets. Not only is it more professional, but it also elongates along with slims your legs down. Flared pants are so versatile to where you can wear the with virtually anything. For a laid back feel, pair it with a tee for a vintage look, if you want to look professional try wearing a blazer and pearls or for a boho feel, throw on a cute peasant top. The possibilities are endless!
If denim on denim and flared bottoms can make a comeback, why can’t any other trend? Help revive these forgotten gems of fashion history and go experiment! You never know what you will find. Have a great day my loves.
