Jennifer Lawrence Has Rocked The Drop Waist Y2K Trend — Here’s How You Can Too

Controversial trends are making a comeback!

The 2000s and the 2010s had some interesting fashion trends, which in retrospect many people have controversial opinions on. Skinny jeans, low-rise everything, ballet flats and peplum are among the trends people look back on less than favourably and thanks to the rise in fast fashion and micro trends, many are already creeping their way back into fashion.

The Y2K revival has been ongoing for a few years now, with many 00s staples already modern fashion trends, but Jennifer Lawrence has dared to bring back one trend that we haven’t seen for a while–– the drop waist trend.

Jennifer rocked a modern interpretation of the Y2K trend at W Magazine’s Annual Best Performances Party with a plunging neckline, ruched waist and long leather skirt. Ruched waists are super on trend right now and Jennifer’s modern twist on the dropped waist trend works perfectly and flatters her body to give the illusion of a longer torso. If you’re shorter, this could be the perfect trend to try!
