To be honest, it’s still a bit baffling to see trends that we wore when we were in peak puberty making a comeback in 2021. Between the resurgence of bucket hats and butterfly clips (and flare jeans and flatform shoes), it may as well be 2001 again.

Yeah, those. In fairness, it is a fun and easy style to recreate that’s surprisingly flattering thanks to its face-framing powers. We’ll show you what we mean ahead.
