I'm Pretending Like It's 2005 Again, Thanks to the Jonas Brothers' Comeback, & Only Wearing These Nostalgic Trends

Just in case you haven’t been on the internet for the past two weeks, the Jonas Brothers have reunited after a 6-year hiatus and my inner 10-year-old won’t stop screaming. I’m 22 now, but that absolutely will not stop me from breaking out my old Jonas Brothers t-shirts, posters, and heart-shaped cutouts of Joe’s face. There’s something so nostalgic and exciting about the teen heartthrobs from our adolescence coming back to provide us with new music that has grown up just as we have.

The same can be said of all the great (and terrible) fashion trends of the 2000s, some of which are starting to make a reappearance. 2019 is about to be a year of trends from our youth adapted into something more grown up, and I’ve never been more excited to go full circle with my style. Here are some current trends inspired by the early 2000s that I'll be wearing throughout this next JoBro era:

  1. 1. Hair clips

    As the preferred method of keeping my hair out of my face when dancing around my room to every JoBro album, I am totally stoked that hair clips have made a HUGE reappearance. These accessories have gone from kitschy to chic after being utilized on the runways of fashion week around the world.

  2. 2. Cargo and track pants

    There must be something in the air because I actually… really love this trend? Maybe it stems from watching a lot of Kim Possible when I was younger, I can’t be too sure. This trend is coming back strong and is most commonly seen paired with a cropped top.

  3. 3. Leopard print

    Truthfully, I think the Cheetah Girls are primarily responsible for the leopard print craze that came about in the 2000s. Although there isn’t a reunion on that front for the foreseeable future, that doesn’t have to stop us from embracing this iconic fashion comeback that we all know and love. 

  4. 4. Cropped camisoles and tanks

    These items are inarguably a staple of the 2000s. Seriously, if you google 2000s fashion the majority of pictures that come up are crop tops, specifically tank tops and camisoles. As the warm months get nearer, cropped tanks are perfect to pair with long, flowy skirts and pants.

I can’t believe that I actually typed the words ‘cargo pants are in style’, yet here we are, pairing them with crop tops and looking fab. If there’s one thing to learn from this, it’s that trends come in and out of style throughout the years. Who knows, maybe in the year 3000 our great-great-great granddaughters will adopt these trends once again.
