If you also have the problem of immediately pivoting your life and rewatching Gilmore Girls the second fall rolls around, this one is for you. Although my main priorities while bingeing are enjoying Lorelai’s sarcastic commentary and watching how the girls’ love lives unfold, in this year’s rewatch, I took special notice of the fashion trends from the early 2000s that I’m seeing circling back around this season.
While a majority of people may not think of Rory Gilmore as a proposed style icon (she had enough on her résumé), she did share a closet with Lorelai, who hoarded an obscene amount of trendy clothing and could never say no to a trip to the mall. If you’re in the same boat as me and are finding yourself wanting to transport back to Y2K in Gilmore fashion, I rounded up eight of the trends that the mother-daughter duo and other Stars Hollow residents often sported along with shoppable modern versions that I’d incorporate into my wardrobe today.
From cropped cardigans to skater tees, there’s a fall item in this list you’ll want to get a hold of. Scroll below to take a trip down memory lane and shop for yourselves. Where they lead, we will follow.
