Those of us born between 1987 and 1992 probably thought of Lizzie McGuire as a Millennial idol. She was the bedazzled, bandana-wearing tween who guided us through our adolescence, filling a void the Olsen’s twins left. To those of us who grew up with Lizzie, she was a voice when we didn’t feel heard. We laughed through her "punk" phase, was shocked when they revealed her Italian doppelgänger, and cried with mutual feelings when the guy she liked just didn’t like her back. It’s easy to say her impact on us was huge. But beyond her wise-cracking parents and amazing friendships, the greatest thing about the teen sitcom was her style. She wore everything we loved—and hated—about post-millennial fashion. Nothing was left un-embellished, over-accessorizing was an art form, and Lizzie's hair was crimped to its compacity.
According to the runways during fall 2019 fashion week, her style is back. Eckhaus Latta embraced tie-dye, Michael Kors styled his models with bandanas. It only makes sense that other brands jump on the bandwagon and that’s what Urban Outfitters is doing. They are teaming up with Steve Madden to relaunch their iconic platforms and bank on these millennium fashion trends.
