Lucy Loves: Sorry, But the ’00s Are Back

As Paris Hilton would say, that's hot.

I hate to break it to you, but early-2000s-era style is once again, as Paris Hilton would say, hot. And though I’m not saying we need to bring low-rise jeans back—those can stay forever buried next to crimped hair and popped collars, thank you very much—there are some millennial trends worth reigniting.

The addition of a single freshwater pearl on each Jane earring (from $220) by the Vancouver-based Roque offers a chic update to the oversized hoop embraced by the upper echelons of ’90s and early-aughts R&B.

Trade in your matte lippie for a li’l high-sheen gloss—a look made easy (and not at all sticky) by Fenty Beauty’s Gloss Bomb ($23): a product so flattering across skin tones, it could inspire its own Sisterhood series.

It ain’t Sean John—or velour—but the relaxed fit and bold jacquard print of Japanese streetwear label Needles’ track jacket ($455) and pant ($380) should prove a tad more fashion-forward.

Gentle Monster’s experimental take on eyewear shines in the Poxi 02 sunglasses ($428), which boast the sort of candy-hued lenses sported by the likes of Brad Pitt and Eve during their peaks.

Tackle double the ’00s—micro-purses and all-over logos—with the mini-Dior oblique saddle bag ($2,850), an iconic silhouette from the French fashion house that’s experienced a resurgence in recent years.
