The 2019 Trends That Destiny's Child Wore First

Destiny's Child did a lot for me through the 2000s. The group's R&B power songs like "Survivor" and "Bootylicious" were always playing on my Walkman. And when the Charlie's Angels movie came out in 2001 and "Independent Woman" came into my life via the movie's soundtrack, everything changed. That song still gives me confidence. I couldn't handle it. I learned to depend on me.

What I still can't handle is how good Michelle, Bey, and Kelly were at group dressing through the noughties. Their outfits (from low-rise jeans and the best going-out tops I have ever seen to the gold miniskirts and strappy shoes in the "Bills, Bills, Bills" video) still make me lose my breath. Always glam with a touch of camp and a lot of fun (you have Beyoncé's fashion-designing mother, Tina Knowles, to thank for many of the most memorable creations). Here are the Destiny's Child looks that are still very on trend in 2019.

Style Notes: From their diamenté belts to their low-rise jeans, these outfits just embody my favourite things about noughties style and tap into so many of 2019's microtrends.

Style Notes: The wild Western glam vibes in this look are so strong. The fringed suede, the hats…

Style Notes: DC were among the first to echo Carrie Bradshaw's love of impractical shoes in the real world. I love how they match the dresses.

Style Notes: Not only is wearing all-white one trick to looking instantly chic, but the ruffled shirts are also a very 2019.
