Trends are cyclic so every decade or so, you can expect a resurgence of style and beauty from eras gone by. Going by the fashion trends that this year will be seeing, it seems like 2021 is all set to get a taste of the early 2000s. Remember the times of chain belts, platform flip-flops, dogs being carried in purses and The Simple Life with Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie? Those were the days when fashion was shimmery, outlandish and completely in your face. Who would have thought they'd be back again! Thanks to the wonders of social media platforms like Instagram and TikTok, Gen Z is rediscovering some of the most popular retro fashion trends from the 2000s.

Swirlster Picks Retro Fashion For You
1. Baguette Bags
From Sarah Jessica Parker striding along the streets of New York with hers to Hilary Duff keeping hers snug on her shoulder, the baguette bag was everywhere. Today designers like Fendi and Prada have crafted their luxurious high-end versions to make the switch from totes even sweeter.
2. Yoga Pants
Back when leggings weren't invented in every shape and style imaginable, we had yoga pants. Sitting low on the waist, fitted until the calves and then flared out, there were what athleisure dreams were made of. Gen Z today has plenty more options but have brought back yoga pants by terming them 'flared leggings.'
Every sporty girl had a pair of 'skorts' in her wardrobe. Though they looked like a skirt, under the overlapping layer, they covered a pair of shorts beneath. Get set to see them back in action, styled in typically millennial fashion.
4. Velour Tracksuit
An icon of the era, the velour tracksuit was sported by fashion royalty in the 2000s. From Britney Spears to Paris Hilton, no one can forget their Juicy Couture tracksuits in bright candy shades.
5. Low Rise Jeans
The 2010s may have been all about high waist skinny jeans but that's set to change this year. The low rise style that sits comfortably on the hip bone is coming back to once again showcase belly button piercings and glitzy belts.
