Y2K Outfits Revisited: 11 Styles Making A Powerful Comeback
Recent news announcing the likes of Saved By the Bell and Friends returning for one off specials is signaling the revival of 90s and 2000s pop-culture. But that’s not all that’s making a comeback. Now the fashion is too.
And while some fashion trends should just stay dead and buried (micro mini skirts anyone?), celebrities like Gigi Hadid and Selena Gomez have re-introduced certain Y2K outfits back into the zeitgeist.
So whether you’re a Gen Y’er looking to relive the good old days or a Gen Z’er in need of outfit inspiration for your 2000s themed party - we’ve kept our eyes open. These are the Y2K outfits that are definitely back in style.
This look is definitely back. But in the early naughties, if a top wasn't a halter neck you just didn't wear it. Facts.
Dresses Over Jeans
This is the ultimate crossover between styles - when you're stuck between wearing a dress or jeans and a top - how about both?
Juicy Couture Tracksuits
Consider this look the precursor to athleisure. You're definitely not going to be working out any time soon. But you'll look like you could.
Just like wearing a backpack for your legs - these pants are both convenient with the number of pockets they have. And perfect for streetwear.
Red Leather Pants
If you're going to wear leather pants, why not make them red leather pants?
If you're on a budget and you can't afford a new t-shirt, how about making a new one out of your old t-shirts?
Tank Tops Over Another Shirt
A bit of indecisiveness here again - when you can't decide which top to wear, just wear both.
Let's be honest, UGGs never went out of fashion. But since you're already wearing them around the house, you may as well wear them outside the house too.
You've heard of YouTube, well, this is you in a tube.
Von Dutch Hats
Trucker style hats have always floated around the fashion scene. But in the 2000s, if yours didn't say Von Dutch on the front, you may as well not have worn one at all.
