Twenty years after its debut, a second Freaky Friday film is coming to the big screen, according to The Hollywood Reporter. In a May 10 New York Times interview with both stars of the Disney comedy, Jaime Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan expressed their openness to returning and remaking a sequel that the Freaky Friday fans will absolutely adore.
“As I went around the world with Halloween Ends,” people wanted to know if there was going to be another Freaky Friday,” Curtis shared. “Something really touched a chord. When I came back, I called my friends at Disney and said, ‘It feels like there’s a movie to be made.’”
Lohan’s character, Anna, is the epitome of an angsty, Hot Topic-obsessed mall punk. She shared, “Freaky Friday felt different because I was going through all of the phases of a 16-year-old [but playing a character who was a year younger]. This was the era of Avril Lavigne and punk, and I wanted to experience it.”
The Avril Lavigne-inspired risqué aesthetic was all the rage in the early 2000s. Everyone was gawking over the edgy, chic, subcultural style, and the grunge post-grunge look. With the reemergence of the movie franchise, there will definitely be a resurgence of pop-punk and alternative rock fashion. Here are 13 lucky punk pieces to buy that emulate that 2000s punk look people were obsessed with when the first movie came out.
- Band Tees & Tanks
Inspired by Anna’s iconic red and black raglan shirt, show off your love for your favorite punk musicians with a band T-shirt or tank top. Whether it’s cropped or oversized, it serves as a way for you to express your allegiance to your favorite band. Bonus points if it’s a Pink Slip shirt.
- Green Army Pants
Try these baggy cargos to encapsulate a resistant attitude. The pants’ practical and durable qualities are in harmony with punk’s do-it-yourself style, while their military heritage contributes to their rebellious allure.
- High-top sneakers
Converse Chuck Taylors were a popular shoe choice for the punk look of the 2000s. Match Anna’s Black Converse with blue laces by grabbing your own beat up high tops.
Choker necklaces add to your spectacular punk style. This edgy statement jewelry piece is very versatile, and can be paired with a variety of punk fashion elements.
- Chunky Bracelets
Check out this popular black jelly jewelry. The bold and exaggerated designs and spikes of chunky jewelry make a statement and draw attention, allowing wearers to express their individuality.
- Studded Belts
A studded belt is a classic punk accessory that can add edge to any outfit. Loosely wearing this belt creates a sense of unmatched coolness and toughness.
- Denim Jacket
A great way to show off your punk style is wearing a denim jacket adorned with iron-on patches or enamel pins. These long-lasting coats are perfect — not only for punk physical lifestyle activities, such as moshing, but also for longform representation of punk bands.
- Black Nail Polish
Black nail polish is a staple to finish off all of your punk looks. This symbol represents the nonconformist and challenging attitudes that punks love to show off.
- Plaid Skirt
The distinctive pattern of muted, slim-fit plaid skirts continues to be a popular fashion choice within the punk aesthetic. The versatility of plaid also makes it a practical choice for DIY fashion, allowing individuals to create unique and affordable looks by combining different colors and patterns.
- Velvet Dress
Inspired by the Steve Nicks-like dress that Anna wears when she switches to Tess, velvet dresses with a kaleidoscopic print add a twist to punk fashion. The soft and luxurious texture of velvet interconnected with the punk DIY ultimately creates a striking visual statement.
Fishnet stockings are a fun way to add some punk flair to your fit. They can be easily customized, ripped, or paired with other punk staples to construct a rougher look.
- Low-rise, ripped jeans
Anything with rips and tears is essential to an authentic mall punk look. Low-rise jeans were a popular choice for punks in the early 2000s because the form-fitting design emphasized individuality and self-expression, while the low rise cut challenged traditional societal fashion expectations.
- Messenger Bags
A messenger bag has been a staple accessory in punk fashion due to their practicality and rebellious aesthetic. These bags are typically made from durable materials, such as canvas, and they offer ample storage space for carrying music equipment, zines, and other punk essentials.
