As bucket hats, low rise jeans, crop tops, and cargo pants start to come into style we get a glimpse into the past of fashion. In the early 2000s, fashion was all about large denim statements, crop tops, hoodies, ribbed sweaters, and cargo pants paired with sneakers or sandals. As these trends come back into style, UHS News sought insights from a few fashion lovers at Ukiah High School and to see what inspires them.
Emma Van Patten , a Junior at Ukiah High School, said some of her big fashion influencers are Emma Chamberlain and movies/TV shows that she enjoys. Emma said she mostly bases her outfits from the ’90s which has similar fashion trends as the early 2000s by having large denim statements. Van Patten described the accessories she likes: “jewelry or hats, an outfit can be horrible but throw in some hoops, a trendy hat and some rings and the outfit is a 10/10” When Van Patten normally picks out her outfits, she normally has something in mind that she wants to wear and proceeds to match the outfit off of that piece of clothing. Van Patten described her style as “feminine based but with masculine pieces here and there”

Ukiah High Freshman Lina Veronica gets a lot of her inspiration from Instagram and Pinterest but she also gets a lot of inspiration from some of her favorite TV shows and actors. Veronica said, “I have to admit I am all over the place when it comes to fashion, I never really stick with just one thing because I love all sorts of aesthetics, I usually base my outfits off the ’70s, ’90s, or early 2000s” Veronica’s favorite accessories are clips, belts, and bucket hats. When choosing her outfits, Veronica says that, “Usually I choose my outfits based off color and pattern but sometimes when I’m going for a bolder look I don’t have any algorithm I just put on what fits the vibe” Veronica described her style as a mix of grunge, girly, indie, hippie, and sometimes an occasional touch of designer but at the end of the day she said, “I just wear what makes me happy!”
