The ‘Trendies’ of Athens- 00’s

A very popular trend that found extension in the year 2004 and lasted until 2006, in Greece- and particularly Athens, was the ‘ Trendy look’. This style was created and embraced by the teenagers of the ages between 14 and 20 and was mainly addressed to teenagers coming from wealthy families around the north suburbs of Athens. The main aim of the ‘ trendy’ teenagers, how they were called, was to show their economical state through their clothes and highlight the hometown they came from. They often went shopping in the most popular area, back then, area, Kiffisia where many designer brands and boutiques had their own stores. They mainly were dressed casually but with style and the brands they key items they would wear, were hoodies in different bright colours, really tight jeans and converse all starts or vans shoes.

The girls where showing their feminine side in a very cute way as they where dressed in pink or other bright colours, using many different fabric patterns like colourful polka dots and stripes, cutting their trousers up to the point of the ankle, putting on ballerina shoes and millions of bracelets in both wrists in the clours of the rainbow. Their hair was a kind of pre-mature emo style, with much volume on the top, fringe and decorated with small bows. Key items you would usually see them using where the Longchamp bag in all the colours, perfectly waxed Barbour jacket, Tommy Hilfiger pullovers and GAP hoodies, Paul Frank t-shirts, Diesel jeans and enormous sunglasses.

The boys, on the other hand, where ‘skater styled’ even if they where skaters or not! They would all have long fringes as well, wearing big DC-Etnies- Vans shoes, whether baggy or tight jeans- but the rule was one – half their underwear had to be showing !
