While creating this look, I knew that I wanted to put together an outfit that draws its inspiration from some of the biggest trends of the early 2000s.
To get it, put on fuzzy textured top (because those were huge back in the early 2000s!); next, throw on a pair of baggy camo-print pants (because those were literally huge in the early 2000s!).
Chunky sneakers are a must-have for any 2000s-inspired sporty look, while large, thin hoops are the perfect way to add some shine to the ensemble (not to mention that they’ve made a big comeback in today’s fashion world!).
Complete the outfit with a trendy throw-back baker boy cap, as well as an athletic-inspired fanny pack, which is not only a great way to accessorize, but is also a practical and safe way to store your essentials at the concert, completely hands-free.

For Outfit #2, I decided to create a feminine look that incorporates elements from both the early and later 2000s for a sort of 2000s trend mash-up.
Start off by pairing a velour zip-up hooded sweatshirt (this one is by 2000s it-brand, Juicy Couture!) with a black denim mini skirt; if it’s too cold to go bare-legged where you live, feel free to layer leggings underneath for extra warmth and 2000s style points!
Also, since concerts can get pretty hot sometimes, it’s probably a good idea to make like basically every 2000s girl and add layered tank tops underneath the sweatshirt; here, I chose to layer a solid-colored olive green tank underneath a white henley tank for maximum mid-to-late-2000s coolness.
In terms of footwear, I decided to take inspiration from early 2000s girls’ fondness for flatform shoes, and included a pair of flatform sneakers (which, btw, I totally wanted back in the day).
As for accessories, I couldn’t resist these cute butterfly thread-through earrings, nor could I not include a small shoulder bag, since mini bags were all the rage back then.
Finally, because you can’t dress in head-to-toe 2000s-inspired clothing without also doing your makeup to match, don’t forget to put on some pale blue eyeshadow and/or shiny lipgloss to finish off the look.

For the final ensemble, I chose to go with a more laid-back approach to put together a look that is mostly quite casual, but that also has a dash of femininity thrown in for good measure.
To copy the outfit for yourself, pair an early 2000s staple — the lettuce-hem t-shirt — with some baggy joggers. I chose to combine these two pieces (which I’ve personally never seen worn together) because I like how the top’s more fitted silhouette contrasts with the much looser silhouette of the bottoms.
You can’t go wrong with a pair of chunky hiking boots, both in terms of their style factor (In addition to being trendy in the 2000s, they are also making a big comeback right now.), and in terms of the comfort that they offer — so lace up a pair, being sure to tuck the hems of your pants into the boots like people did back then.
A bright fanny pack adds a fun pop of color, while a cute heart necklace adds further visual interest.
To complete the look, use a claw clip to put your hair back in a messy bun or half-ponytail (depending on how much of your hair you can fit in the clip); I really like the metallic finish of this one in particular, which gives it a modern twist!
