2000's Fashions

by Kim Jennifer Bernal


The 2000s was an era of first-taste reality shows, TV stars, the start of influencer culture, and the birth of fashion aesthetics – from hip-hop fashion to emo, streetwear, scene, and athleisure.
The 2000s fashion had no shortage of style muses, from Paris Hilton to Britney Spears and Lindsey Lohan to the Olsen twins, the American fashion designers and former actresses that ruled the millennium decade.
Perhaps the 2000s fashion era is most known for the ‘Gossip Girl,’ an American teen drama TV series revolving around the lives of privileged upper-class adolescents living in Manhattan’s Upper East Side.
True Religion was one of the biggest clothing brands of that decade, often regarded as an icon of the 2000s fashion. The classic True Religion bootcut jeans became popular in the 2000s to the point where the trousers were considered a status symbol, along with Juicy Couture’s velour tracksuits.
While skinny jeans are synonymous with the 2000s fashion decade, baggy jeans were the signature style in rap music, worn by hip-hoppers and rappers everywhere.
While you could argue that the American comedian and actor Pete Davidson is working hard to bring back this trend, baggy jeans were the go-to look of the 2000s most famous rappers.
If you’re an athleisure fan, you should thank the early Juicy Couture tracksuits for making the athleisure clothing movement successful today.
With their Juicy Couture tracksuits and oversized Louis Vuitton bags, Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian stand out as two of the most representative celebrities of the 2000s fashion.
In the 2000s, most footwear was designed to add an extra few inches to one’s height. Designer brands like Christian Louboutin and Yves Saint Laurent had us falling head over heels for wedges and platforms.
Wedge mules and platform sandals, in that characteristic 2000s style, are ideal if you’re looking to “tower over” your friends.
Above all, as the 2000s platform sandals can be used from spring to late into autumn, wear them for extra height and a lovely summer chic look.
