from the end of the world to the fastest returning fashion trend – y2k is back

For all my millennial comrades wondering, y2k is making a monumental return – but this time as a fashion trend, not the end of the world as we know it. And this season it’s all about the aesthetic. While 90’s returned almost as quickly as they ended, y2k may be the fastest fashion trend turnaround of all time. Celebrating an era of curious youth, simple tanks, bucket hats, chunky footwear and yes… low rise cargos are making a return.  What is y2k fashion?  Talking decades, y2k fashion covers the late ’90’s and early to mid 2000’s. For millennials, it’s all about the throwback to early teens and capturing those fond memories of youth and exploring new found freedoms.  Defined by pop culture, it’s a little less about bringing back Britney, and a little more about expressing style at that stage when you transition from youth to adulthood. As such, exploring what it means to feel “sexy” is a big definer of the trend, mixed with whimsical elements of youth.  Yes, we’re talking teeny-tiny mini skirts and …

Vogue has officially declared that the bucket hat fashion trend is going no where. You can thank Y2K fashion and the early return of 90’s and early 2000’s style. The bucket hat is officially back on the fashion scene. And with its laid back yet edgy vibe, there are plenty of reasons to embrace the trend. What are bucket hats Yes, I’m talking about the fisherman style hat with its narrow, downward-sloping brim. While fashion leaders and celebrities have been obsessed with the re-emergence of the bucket hat trend since 2020, they’re making even bigger headlines in spring 2022.  Typically made of canvas, the most outrageous styles have even been spotted in thick padded faux fur and shag (but let’s not go there).  Who’s wearing them Fashion leading celebrities like Bella Hadid, Hailey Beiber and musician Duo Lipa have all been spotted wearing bucket hats on the repeat paired with beach style and street style alike. The ever fashion social circle has also widely adopted the trend, rocking bucket hats with y2k fashion, retro outfits, …

5 modern trends with a classic past

Repeatedly the fashion industry will tell the story of how trends come in and out of fashion. The perpetual crashing waves of trends that hit consumers and sky-rocket the value of different products. So often, when a trend crashes upon us all again we forget the past. We forget where the look originated from and just how long it has been around. However, as someone who adores history in all forms, obsessing over the past of these summer trends came easily to me.  September fashion week’s trends for spring proclaimed many maximalist looks to be particularly chic, but the most relaxed looks that were coming to us were the ones steeped in the ultimate amount history. From trench coats to plaids the runways weren’t just filled with our new favorite looks but also our history from long ago.  Here’s a rundown of a few of the most modern trends with an iconic classic past. #1 Trench coats There is little room to doubt that trench coats have a classic past, from the name itself to …
