Throwback to Fashion of 2000s – (That You Probably Won’t Do Now)


“Can we turn back time  to the good old days, when our mommas sang us to sleep and now we are stressed out.” LOL! I know, I know..I am hearing too much Twenty One Pilots these days. But what could have been a better Throwback song?
(And I am not counting real throwback numbers of JLo or Spears or Kumar Sanu bcz too cliche.)

So this time, I am really turning back the time to the good (or not so good )old days. To the days where wearing hoopla and tank top with  bell – bottomed denims was a thing.

And those embroidered denims

To an era when popped up combination of blue and yellow (and pink stuffed right in face to it) was the right sartorial choice. ( And So was Rajeev Khandelwal <3)

The times when men could go out with sheer T-shirts and not be judged.

– Sigh- We are getting old 😮

So today, hand in hand, we will navigate down this memory lane and would have a #ThursdayThrowback to some of the swag exuding fashion moments of past 10 years.

I am starting with Lakme Fashion Week. The beauty brand Lakme started the runway walk in 2000 and it has evolved into a zeitgeist-y influencer. But was it always the same? Let’s have a look over some of its starters.

After much effort, I managed to get this legit LFW picture from 2000. This was for bare all collection by Rina Dhaka. The models walked in sheer tops – baring it all and it was quite a talk of the town back then.
A few more pictures that I found of successive LFW shows are here-

And now when I have come to this, I would go a little off topic and would love to share a few more “vintage” pictures of  these Bollywood Divas that I found on deepest,remotest and hidden corners of Google pages 3, 4 and 5 respectively. ( *bows*)

I don’t know why the world was so obsessed with sheer tops in 200os, they kind of look – idk- uncomfortable?!

I still remember those songs of 00s with glitter blouses and satin sarees. Blues, Purples and Magentas were undeniably the color codes.

See Through Dress and Brown Lipstick – Really?!

While now these divas and hunks elicits a reaction that makes us go awe in love and envy with them but back then they made some choices of glamour and vitality that they perhaps won’t repeat now. (And who would?)

Even Kim Kardashian won’t. She would never wear those calf boots with that belt, ever again!

She is all restricted Balmain now

Okay! So early 2000s  were kind of dicey for fashionistas. I don’t know how we fell for those black choker neck pieces, right? And those loud belts !!! Yeah?

Relax, just fast forward 10 years, and we would say same for 2016 too. So cheers for the old times and one more to the present faux-pass that we are making to be reminisced sometime after 10 years.
