Early 2000s Pop Star Fashion Inspiration

The early 2000s were an odd time in fashion. Pop stars towed the line between pastel pink innocence in flowing dresses and platform flip flops, to wannabe motorcycle-riding tough chicks in pleather pants and strange hats or bandanas.

The cropped graphic tees (especially ones with flags on them) were a staple, low-rise jeans with tiny two inch zippers were a must, and no pop singer ever walked a red carpet without showing a belly button at some point.

Looking back 15 years later, these borderline heinous styles, fabrics, and unnecessary fringe accents are bound to return in a serious way. Here is some early 2000s pop star fashion to get you started. Find the hotness in these “trendy for the year 2000” looks and start your fashion revolution.
