Transcript of Fashion in the 2000s

Fashion in the 2000's By: Katie Brintnell Overview... The 2000s are often described as a "mash-up" decade, where trends saw the fusion of previous styles, global and ethnic clothing, as well as the fashions of numerous subcultures, such as hipsters. For the most part, the decade did not have one particular style but recycled styles from the 1930s-1980s, which was common in 1990s fashion. Many 1990s styles continued into the 2000s, but became more polished. The minimalist aesthetic of 1990s fashion continued in the first years of the decade, but fashion moved away from minimalism from 2003 onwards.

Despite the numerous and mixed fashion trends of the 2000s, items of clothing which were predominant or popular throughout the decade include Ugg boots, High-tops, hoodies, and skinny jeans. Globalization also influenced the decade's clothing trends, with the fusion of fashions from around the world being popular. Furthermore, eco-friendly and ethical clothing, such as recycled fashions and fake fur, were prominent in the decade. Woman's fashion Early 2000s In the early 2000s, women and girls wore shoes and boots with rounded or flat toes. Dressy, feminine styles were reintroduced over the course of the decade, as women's fashion moved away from the more unisex styles of the 1990s. From the early 2000s onwards, women wore denim miniskirts, burberry, hip-hop inspired sweatpants, Daisy Dukes, ripped "distressed" jeans, flip-flops, ponchos, flared trousers, denim jackets and tank tops exposing the midriff. Colors like baby blue, yellow and hot pink were popular. Women's Fashion Mid 2000s From the mid 2000s and onwards, European and American women wore lowrise skinny jeans, lycra yoga wear, knee-high boots with pointed toes, trenchcoats and peacoats, tunics worn with wide or thin belts, capri pants, longer tank tops worn with a main blouse or shirt, 1940s inspired New Look dresses and sandals, leggings, and "vintage clothing" including hippie and Boho inspired dresses with paisley patterns. Crocs were a brief fad for both sexes in the summer of 2006, despite their kitsch connotations. Women's Fashion Late 2000s In the late 2000s, headbands, denim-print leggings, knitted sweater dresses, Nike Tempo shorts, wonderbra and sloggi underwear, ballet flats, acid wash skinny jeans and light, translucent tartan shirts worn with a camisole underneath were popular among young women. Long, baggy shirts were taken in at the bustline and often paired with a belt. Leather jackets and fur coats (previously avoided due to their association with animal cruelty) made a comeback. In Britain Middle Eastern shemaghs were worn as scarves as a protest agains the Iraq War and demonstration of solidarity with the Palestinians.

Style yourself Fashion and your lifestyle The 2000's were known as the 'mash-up' decade because we saw such a fusion of styles, global and ethnic clothing. For the most part, the decade didn't have a definite style, but recycled styles from the 1930's to 1980's. The lifestyles of the time were just as varrying. Women's fashion moved away from the more conservative unisex styles, flaring out into more feminin, dressy styles. Men's fashion was heavily inspired by the retro fashions of British indie pop groups of the 1960's. Later in the decade saw the re-emergance of the 1950's and 1980's. The fashion and lifestyle of the 2000's reflected this; Do and wear what you want. In the early 2000s, womens hair was long and straight. Side-swept bangs become popular towards the mid-2000's. Towards the late 2000's, textured hair with volume, natural wavy hair, side-parted hair and shorter styles like the bob cut and pixie cut made a comeback. For black women cornrows, dreadlocks, a tamed-down version of the Afro and Jheri curl were popular in the late 2000s, replacing the earlier straightened hair. Hairstyles for Women In the early 2000s, Argyle socks, khaki slacks, bootcut jeans, tracksuits, light-colored polo shirts (sometimes striped), white Adidas or Nike trainers, baggy carpenter jeans, Oxford shoes, loafers, camp shirts (often in fancy metallic patterns for clubbing), and baseball caps were popular. Practical hiking jackets (of the type made by Berghaus), fleeces and padded tartan lumberjack-type shirts were worn as winter outerwear. Men's fashion Early 2000's In the mid 2000s, retro fashions inspired by British indie pop groups and the 1960s counterculture became popular, including Converse All-stars, winklepickers (taken to extremes by individuals within the Mexican cholo and lowrider subcultures), cartoon print hoodies (in contrast to the designer brands worn by the chav subculture), vintage T-shirts, slim-fitting jeans (popularised by garage rock revival band The Strokes), Mod-style parkas, military surplus dress jackets and fitted 1970s style Western shirts with pearl snaps (popularised by blues-rock band the White Stripes). Men's fashion Mid 2000's Men's fashion Late 2000's In the late 2000s, 1950s and 1980s fashions became popular: Letterman jackets, black leather jackets like the Perfecto, Hawaiian shirts, straight leg jeans, Ray Ban Aviator sunglasses, wool topcoats, Ed Hardy T-shirts with low necklines, retro Patek Philippe, Casio G-Shock and Rolex wristwatches, houndstooth tweed jackets, neon colors inspired by rave music, geek chic inspired horn rimmed glasses, roll sleeve tartan flannel shirts worn with white T-shirts, cardigans and knitted V-neck sweaters. Popular footwear in Europe and America included Sperry Top-Siders, Keds, motorcycle boots, Nike Air Jordans, checkerboard pattern Vans, and Converse Chuck Taylor All-Stars. In the European workplace the cut of suits changed as the three buttoned jackets popular in the 1990s were replaced with suits comprising a two-buttoned blazer and matching trousers while in the US the power suit made a comeback. Single-breasted European suits sometimes featured contrasting Edwardian style piping on the lapels and were often worn with slim ties and waistcoats. For the most part, fashion was able to continue, unaffected by world events. Only the 9-11 incident, and the economic downfall made any noticeable dent in the fashion industry. After 9-11, people morned- and in some way fashion reflected that for a short while.

More impacting, was the economic stir up, which left a good portion of the world in debt. Clothing simplified here, to cut costs and accomadate the lack of money. Even now, we are still seeing the results of the economic crisis in our clothing. The world of fashion
at the time... Youth fashion was strongly influenced by many music-based subcultures such as Emo, Indie kids, scene kids, Psychobilly, Preppy, Skater, Goth, Nu-Metal (known as Moshers in the UK), ravers and Hip-Hop, including the British chav, US gangsta rapper and Mexican Cholo styles of the early 2000s.

The most conspicuous of these subcultures, the "scene kids", originated in Britain during the late-1990s when some members of the chav subculture began to experiment with alternative fashion, incorporated elements of indie pop, emo, rave music, and Japanese glam rock style, and spread to America and Australia in the mid-2000s. The style, originally comprising tripp pants, stripes, tartan, spiky hair, Chucks, Vans, and trucker hats derived from grunge and skate punk fashion, evolved to incorporate androgynous, brightly dyed big hair, skinny jeans, cartoon print hoodies, shutter shades, promise rings, checked shirts, and lots of bright colors. Teenagers Re-use, and recycle... Sadly the 2000's saw no spectacularily innovative creations fashion wise, since the goal seem to be recycling clothing from the 1930's to 80's. Instead, we rediscovered a love for;

-Vintage 1960's & 70's
-Feminin styles
-Tight fit clothing, and long hair among both genders Make up... Despite our lack of creativity clothing wise, make up continued to bring new ideas to the table. The most notable trend was to 'The Flawless look'. Where everything was blended perfectly, in a single uniform color, with the only other accents being faint blush on the cheeks and minimal around the eyes. OR- at least that could be said about the early to mid 2000's... Make up cont... Here are a few up and coming trends that took route in the late 2000's. UPCOMING TRENDS COURTESY OF WWD:
