Not too long ago, we lived in a world where halter tops and flared jeans ruled both the streets and the runways. Rhinestone embellishments were beloved by the style-savvy and pop music was in its prime, with plenty of music-video looks that (admittedly) we’d still wear today. And even better—our favorite musicians debuted their own fashion lines to help us look our flyest long before Kanye tackled Adidas.
Sometimes we get a little nostalgic about aughts trends (who among us can resist the classic 00′s bandana top and velour sweatsuit?) so we’re sad to see the demise of many #iconic fashion lines run by the pop and R&B stars of the turn of the century. Still, we prefer to smile because it happened instead of crying because it’s over.
These eight musician-run clothing lines will always define the aughts for us—and we look forward to the day we can truly consider them “vintage.”
