00s fashion

While many of us us (thankfully) made it out of the 00s leaving some incredibly cringe-worthy fashion trends behind us, there are still some things which haunt our memories. 

Fashion is one thing, but beauty is an entirely different animal. 

Remember the days of zero YouTube tutorials, shimmery bronzer and 100 per cent less eyebrows?

Well, let us take a quick trip down memory lane for a reminder of the make up trends which were perfectly fine with letting go of. 

1. Less was definitely more when it came to brows:

2. There was a lot of tan happening:

The '00s did have bronzer though, which, like many things during this glorious decade, had a tendency to make you orange and glittery.

3. Everything was better with 100 per cent more black eyeliner, day or night:

4. Body glitter:

No Miley. Do not try and bring this back. 

5. People could not get enough of extensions:

2007 was a tough year for a lot of people.

6. Ultra dark lip liner was on point:

Shades were dark, and then extra dark.

7. Which had to then be combined with a very frosty lip:

This was considered the holy grail according to Bebo photo albums.

8. The 'zig-zag' parting:

It was hard to be taken seriously with this look.

Let this be a reminder to us all that someday we will look back on all of those contouring tutorials and think, 'why?'


The latest collection for Louis Vuitton was all about bringing fashion into the future.

However, Nicola Ghesquiére’s designs had us feeling more nostalgic than anything else.

Set against a Minecraft-inspired backdrop, the show explored how the digital age affects fashion.

There was a lot of sleek multicolour leather jackets, silvery metallic pieces, and mind-boggling graphic prints. All of these were fabulous mind you, but there was one piece in particular that got our attention. Just look at it!

The standout item gave us a case of sartorial déjà vu. In fact, it felt plucked straight from our early-2000s wardrobe: they brought back the bubble skirt.

Many a teenage disco did we attend sporting one of these bad boys.

The flouncy, rounded-hem bottom is making its comeback in the forward-thinking context of Louis Vuitton's spring line. The collection apparently also drew inspiration from Japanese anime.

The bubble skirts in question were paired with more structured (dare we say sophisticated) pieces to add a touch of playfulness to the pieces.

There was, surprisingly no mention of the bubble skirt’s sister, the infamous ‘rara’ skirt, also a feature in many a 00s wardrobe.

So, really, it turns out that we were all way ahead of the fashion crowd way back when.

We still are not entirely sure if we’re ready to bring these back into our lives.
