These Trends Are Making A Comeback

Early 2000s trends have finally come full circle; we’ve fallen in love with them, cringed at the sight of them, and love them all over again! Fall 2016 runways were filled with jean skirts, shearling, and exposed lace and lingerie in perfect 2000s fashion. Designers modernized these trends by changing the silhouette and styling them for a new look. Denim skirts are largely made in A-line cuts and exposed lace is styled in a much more subtle and feminine way.
Celebrities like Selena Gomez and Hailey Baldwin have turned the jean skirt from a thing of the past to a chic wardrobe staple. Pair a jean skirt with over-the-knee boots in cooler months this fall or a strappy gladiator sandal as you transition out of the warmer summer months. The A-line cut of this new wave of jean skirts make them a trendier version of their 2000s counterparts. The A-line cut looks great with a crop top for a night out and can even be dressed down with a graphic tee for a more casual look. However you wear it, the denim skirt is a classic and versatile piece that belongs in every wardrobe.

Another throwback style taking the runways by storm is shearling. Burberry models sported exaggerated shearling trim on bomber jackets in the Fall/Winter 2016 runway shows. Shearling appeared on several other designer runways for the coming season, each designed with a different style. Chloé took an entirely new approach to this comeback trend with a shearling and leather pullover, a look that is sure to extend to the masses in no time. Upgrade old sweatshirts to a shearling outer layer for a luxe and comfortable look.

Exposed lace and lingerie are rising from the ashes of the Britney/Christina era classier than ever. For Love and Lemons offers high-quality bralettes and lace pieces that perfectly embody the romantic clothing style. A lace bralette works under virtually any garment, particularly shirts with a low neckline or exposed back for a taste of femininity with exposed lace.  For Love and Lemons also features dainty lingerie-inspired dresses that look best paired with a classic pump for a night out or ankle booties and a jacket for a daytime look. This season in particular, opt for black lace pieces inspired by Alexander McQueen, Dolce & Gabbana, and Valentino for a darker, more gothic look. Whether you’re sporting a lace dress, denim skirt, or shearling pullover, make your 2002-self proud this fall with these comeback trends.
