Noughties Nostalgia | Our favourite looks inspired by fashion's newest vintage

2020 may have given us a rollercoaster ride in many ways so far, not least in the fashion stakes (who would have thought we'd be replacing our shopping carts with loungewear co-ords in lieu of a new pair of heels?)

One benefit of the new decade? A new vintage has arrived, in the form of early 2000s bling. An era of rhinestone sparkle, perspex and OTT logos, what better way to celebrate the arrival of warmer weather (and a fresh sense of freedom) with a little nostalgia for the noughties.

Read on to view our favourite looks from fashion's newest vintage, and how to master a modern take on the first chapter of 21s-century fashion (with a little love for the late 90s too, because, Naomi).



As seen above, an early 2000s Kate Moss was the ultimate after dark muse, and still is. Take a leaf from her book of timeless style and pair a crystal drop earring with an all black ensemble - the perfect way to dip your toe into this trend in a very wearable way.

Shine Bright:  While Naomi Campbell is arguably one of very few who could pull off a pair of rhinestone encrusted sunglasses, we can definitely get on board with the fierce and futuristic feel of a crystal choker.  Get the look with our Cher necklace. perfect for pairing with both evening outfits and a plain white tee alike, as above.   

To the right, Brandi models for Versace for their Fall 1994-1995 collection; a few years ahead of their time with an almost all-metallic collection.




To the left, Gigi Hadid spearheads 2000s revival with a sheer boho-inspired blouse and low slung denim - both of which feature crystal studs, of course. 

In the centre, Sakura wears our newly launched 1950s drop earrings with crystals - the perfect way to add a little nostalgic bling to an outfit with minimal effort.

To the right, Natasha Poly for Burberry in emerald green sequins - adding an air of evening sophistication to the decade's obsession with all things sparkle.



Ok, so we've featured Naomi already, but being the epitome of the late 90s, early noughties era, we couldn't not.  

Save this to your pinboard next time you need a little inspiration for evening attire.




After a previous decade of neutrals and, to be frank, particularly un-attention grabbing style, the 2000s celebrated with a little colour - and, yes, a little logo, too; it's a welcome dose of inspiration as we head into spring/summer party season.

Kate Moss wearing the now infamous vintage limoncello dress made a great case for the otherwise polarising colour; spotted in 2003 at a party for Another Magazine.

And back to more modern times, Bella Hadid recently made a nod to the pastel palette trend and took it to the street, with an extra hint of the decade's love for uninhibited dressing - an oversized cardi over low-slong boyfriend jeans, the look remains feminine thanks to the lilac-toned knit.

Get your own dose of pastel perfect and shop our hard-to-find, John Galliano era Christian Dior Kate Cuff, here.
