Skinny jeans? Never heard of her. From Care Bears to roller blades and tiny purses, the 90s and 00s are back and hotter than ever. The looks Gen Z saw on their pop culture icons during childhood are finally back ‘in.’ We aren’t complaining.
Think these models are faking it? As if! What better way to prove that the ‘00s are truly back in than to know that these models are in pieces from their own closets!
Scarlett Diaz, sophomore, said she couldn’t resist this crop top. “I feel like a bit of a poser—I was never a Care Bears girl growing up,” said Diaz. “But when I saw this Sami Ryan shirt, I got hit with a wave of nostalgia. Care Bears are simple, colorful and fun. This shirt reminds me not to take things so seriously.” Nikki Bullard, sophomore, said the Y2K style trend is right up her alley. “My favorite thing is how experimental it is,” she said. “You could really play with any color or cut and make it work. I love Y2K especially because it’s everything I saw and wanted as a little kid.”
“WhenStyling myself I always remember that confidence is key,” said Dumont “If I don’t feel good about what I’m wearing then no one else will.”
