How Y2K Came to Be: 

As the 2000s seemed to be a drastic change from the late 1990s, many people believed that the 2000s was full of glamor and excitement.This created a wave of new fashion trends like, “bling, designer logos, and slimmed-down cuts in shirts and dresses”.

Many celebrities like Paris Hilton and Britney Spears modeled these iconic fashion pieces. 

 

Examples of Y2k: 

As fun as current trends in 2020 are (puffer jackets, bucket hats, and etc…), it is always fun to go back to the 2000s for inspiration. 

 

Denim 

When there’s a reference to anything denim, the 2000s fits that style. Back in the 2000s, denim skirts, dresses, and even tops were worn all the time. Today, you may see these pieces tailored as denim skirts. 

 

Expensive Brands

When talking about materialistic, Y2k thrives off of anything with designer names on it. This means Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and etc… Right now, there are some popular bags like the Louis Vuitton x Takashi Murakami Multicolor Bag which are in trend.
