Rising runway star Nicole Liew shares her favourite Y2K style trends

It’s safe to say that we’re looking at nowstalgia with a rose-tinted glasses, but we’re not taking them off anytime soon. Gracing our second digital cover is rising fashion model Nicole Liew, who has walked runways in Milan and London Fashion Week.

The 24-year old Singaporean rolled onto set for our digital cover photoshoot with a tank top and baggy jeans, and we managed to catch her during hair and makeup for some of her favourite Y2K style trends.

Low-waisted pants

“I think everyone used to be quite self conscious so high-waisted pants was the default but it seems that people don’t care now. These pants bring out so much character and it’s nice to see change in fashion.”

Bright colours

“I think many people fall back on monochrome because it’s safe, but it’s nice to see people on the streets now sporting brighter colours. Personally, my go-to colours are pink, and yellow”
