Y2K fashion took over our lives by storm back in the 2000s. Pop culture and consumerism were the major influences on fashion at that time. So, in a nutshell, Y2K fashion was the exact opposite of sustainability and conscious clothing. Ironically, the Y2K fashion trends are being revived by one of the most eco-conscious generations and the biggest proponents of secondhand shopping—Gen Z. Luckily for them many iconic outfits from that time can be bought second-hand or thrifted from the stores. Here are some tips to reinvent your Y2K fashion aesthetics through inexpensive yet authentic pieces of that era.
Dust off your denim
Though Y2K fashion is known for its infamous low-rise jeans, wide-leg denim was making a statement during that time too. Modern-day Y2K fashion enthusiasts are bringing back the wide-leg denim which looks equally cute with bucket hats and crop tops alike. If you are feeling a little too brave, you can also shop for pre-loved original Y2K low-rise and
boot-cut jeans as well.
It’s a go for Velour
Velvet Velour track sets were all the rage during the 2000s. All the celebrities were wearing them and it became a fashion phenomenon. Activewear is still in trend decades later. Buying them second-hand is the best way to stay fashionable and sustainable at the same time.
Unique urban wear
Be it retro jerseys or graphic t-shirts, urban wear with funky prints had a place of its own in the Y2K fashion hall of fame. Many famous rappers and boy bands had brands of their own which resulted in the popularity of those t-shirts. Today, we can buy retro and vintage t-shirts of that era from any major secondhand clothing store and relive the glory of Y2K fashion.
