orAnother garment from the early 2000s that until recently seemed to have been completely forgotten is making a comeback: parachute pants. All over TikTok, different examples are being shared as a new must-have for women’s clothing. Gen Z isn’t losing interest in the “faithless” for style inspiration; after low-rise jeans and the butterfly motif, it’s the parachute pants that are returning to the limelight. The passion for the Y2K aesthetic continues to dig out pieces that were left at the bottom of the closet – and that some of us hoped we would never see again! That’s right, none other than the parachute pants – that extremely baggy, shapeless garment that can be cinched at the ankles, made in the unique material like nylon, is being seen on the streets. Since the pandemic and its endless days at home, a growing number of people – including young people – have embraced sportswear and comfortable clothes. After all, it can be hard to slip into a pair of skinny jeans or a tight dress after months of wearing pajamas and jogging bottoms. As for these wide leg pants, while stars like Bella Hadid and Hailey Bieber have been seen sporting the trend by pairing them with a bra or a baggy top for a sporty yet fashionable look, it’s gaining life her new look thanks to Ideas for looks that incorporate pants on social networks.
Parachute pants are being paired with crop tops and body-cuts, as well as oversized sweatshirts for a truly relaxed effect; in fact they go with almost everything, a true sign of a must-have moment, easy to wear with all styles and in all types of weather. So the 2000s fashion comeback is far from over. Which part will come back next?
