While different decades always seem to influence the world of fashion, there’s one era that’s currently showing no signs of letting go: the 2000s. Yes, the era that brought us the (sometimes questionable) fashion choices of Paris Hilton, Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan is back in full force. From tracksuits to tube tops, cargo pants to strappy sandals, here are eight trends we can’t get enough of.
In the decade known as the noughties, there was really no style better than that of Kate Moss, especially when it came to her iconic strappy sandals. Strappy sandals have made a major comeback — (they never really went away) — and it’s a trend that your entire office will want to wear this summer. 29Secrets Pick: High Heeled Strappy Sandals, $49.90, available at Zara.
We hope you held on to your velour tracksuits, because this is one trend that’s surprisingly making a comeback. Previously seen on Britney, Beyoncé, J.Lo, Lilo, and Paris, today’s rendition is a hit with the likes of Kaia Gerber, Kylie Jenner, and Olivia Culpo. But thankfully, today’s tracksuit styles have received a much-needed update and come in more flattering cuts and colours. 29Secrets Pick: Juicy Forever Fleece Zuma Pants, $210.50 & Juice Forever Juicy Forever Fleece Robertson Jacket, $325.62, available at Juicy Couture.
You’ll be channeling your inner 2000s rocker chick, aka Avril Lavigne, in a stylish (and utilitarian) pair of cargo pants. Today’s silhouettes have been upgraded to more flattering cuts, which is why style stars are obsessed with the trend all over again. 29Secrets Pick: Harper Pant, $110, available at I.AM.GIA.
Oops, they did it again… the chunky dad sneakers from the 2000s are back, and thanks to fashion mavens like Kim Kardashian-West and Bella Hadid, they’re hotter than ever. And it just so happens that the OG chunky sneakers, the Skechers D’Lites, are having a serious moment. 29Secrets Pick: SkechersD’Lites Now And Then Sneakers, $65, available at JC Penney (yes, they shop to Canada!).
Mandy Moore, Britney Spears and the Olsen twins were all about coloured lenses in the 2000s, and this super-flattering trend has made triumphant return. What’s great about this trend is that designers on the high/low spectrum have released their own styles, so regardless of your budget, there’s a pair of tinted sunnies for you. 29Secrets Pick: Shady Lady Cat Eye Tinted Sunglasses, $54.82, available at Nordstrom.
As soon as we spotted thick, hoop earrings cropping up on spring runways, we got major Jenny From the Block vibes. What’s great about hoop earrings is that they’ve never really gone out of style, so it’s safe to go ahead and invest in a good pair that you can wear for years to come. 29Secrets Pick: Argento Vivo Hoop Earrings, $62.04, available at Nordstrom
Just when you thought you would never see tube tops again, they’ve somehow managed to make their way into 2018. From Kourtney Kardashian to Hailey Baldwin, fashion stars everywhere are seriously feeling the resurgence of the tube top, and we have to admit, we are, too. 29Secrets Pick: Rainbow Striped Sweater Tube Top, $42, available at Urban Outfitters
Right now, it seems that every ‘It’ girl can’t get enough of monogrammed handbags, old-school Dior logo pieces, outfits donning the classic Fendi ‘F’ print and Louis Vuitton x Supreme monogram items. But don’t stress, more conventional designers have also brought back their popular logo items, so you can still enjoy the trend without breaking the bank. 29Secrets Pick: Fila Striped Crop Top, $44, available at Urban Outfitters
