The fashion of the early years has made a total comeback lately – everything from velvet tracksuits to tinted sunglasses suddenly made a comeback – and as someone who was just a then too young to rock the trends the first time, I’m thankful for my second chance. One of the looks I was always obsessed with when I was growing up in the early 2000s was the skater punk vibe, so when I saw the trailer for The CW’s new show, Noemi, I couldn’t stop being obsessed with fashion.

Naomi is the new DC superhero show produced by Ana DuVernay, based on the somewhat new 2019 character of Naomi McDuffie, aka Powerhouse, and will debut on The CW on Tuesday January 11 and will air for free the next day on the CW app. The show is obviously filled with a tough teen superhero saving his community and friends from the bad guys, but it’s also filled with incredible fashion rocked by Naomi herself. The easy-going skater style that sports screams in the early 2000s, and in honor of the series, we’re picking up some Naomi skater trends that we jump aboard in the new year.

Beaded necklaces

If you had told me beaded necklaces would be back, I would have amassed all the free work necklaces my friends and I made in junior high to resell them on Poshmark. If you don’t have the patience to invest in a 1,000-piece bead kit, cut the necklace directly with this colorful and cute style from American Eagle.

Oversized cardigan

I mean, let’s be real, did oversized cardigans ever really go away? Naomi’s pastel take on the early 2000s skater trend makes me want to opt for a brighter vibe. To emulate Naomi’s style, go for a powder blue, pink or purple thistle, like this one from Dolls Kill.

Wide leg / flared jeans

Today’s kids may never know the pain of getting the entire lower half of their trouser leg wet just by walking from your mom’s car to school doors, but that doesn’t stop them from being obsessed with this trend. IDK on you, but when I wear flared jeans I attract compliments, and with this pair of Free People, you’ll be sure to get the same.

Baseball shirts

He’s bringing in Lindsay Lohan Strange Friday and I’m not angry about it. Paired with low-rise cargo pants and a studded belt, you’ve got an Avril Lavigne moment that perfectly matches your crush’s skateboard.

Fisherman hats

This pastel purple fisherman’s hat has Naomi vibes all over it and just so happens to be in Pantone’s color of the year 2021. Wear this fisherman’s hat over your eyes when you want to block the sun or just haters while running off into the distance.
