Return of the 2000s: the good, the bad, the new
It seems a natural progression that the next mainstream fashionable decade will be the 2000s. News sites have been saying it’s coming although I haven’t been seeing it in regular stores yet. This was a time where I started studying and finished studying, before bill payments, insurance shopping and back pain, so I have a soft spot.
Some of the questionable popular styles from the decade I can remember:
-Long tight t-shirts with (possibly pleated) hipster micro mini skirts
-Tweed replica suits and imitation pearls in the style of ladylike
-juicy couture tracksuits
-Tiny handbags on the shoulder
-Polos with miniskirts
-Emo skinny jean scene hair and black eyes
Inspiration: The OC, The Hills, Mean Girls, s1 Gossip Girl, 90210 s1, The Sweetest Thing
Some of the looks I enjoyed:
Natalia Vodianova in Tom Ford designed Gucci
Gemma Ward in Chanel shows
Devon Aoki in Betsey Johnson
Long line tops
A designer that has recently put out literal interpretations of 2000s is the newish label I.AM.GIA, much of it very body baring but I liked the miniskirt on its own, and would wear such a piece with a covered top and maybe tights.

Folks, what are your feelings to the decade (nostalgia, distaste, ambiguity etc.) and how do you think you will incorporate these styles?
