Y2K fashion, or otherwise spelled for the Millenials among us, Year 2000 Fashion is already making a comeback, not even 2 decades later. For a generation such as Gen-Z, that is incredibly focused on the climate and responsible spending, embracing an era known for excess and ultra-consumerism is going to be a challenge, but one everyone seems to be eager to embrace.
Technically, Y2K covers the late ’90s and early-to-mid 2000s, and for everyone who needs a reminder, here is the bullet points version of everything that is Y2k:
- Cropped tees
- Baggy pants
- Kitsch accessories
- Designer monograms
- Hot pink
- Denim, denim, and more denim.
- Ribbed cardigans
- Mini skirtsLow rise pants
- Shoulder Bags
- Bedazzled everything
- *we can't believe we're typing this* Tracksuits.
And for an era defined by its pop culture queen, we have to mention: Destiny’s Child, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Missy Elliot, J. Lo, and Paris Hilton, along screen legends such as Legally Blonde‘s Elle Woods and Mean Girls‘ Regina George.
