WHAT IS THE Y2K AESTHETIC?
The Y2Kaesthetic is what we call the most popular fashion and design from the period between 1995-2004. At the start of the new millennium, there was a huge emphasis on changing technology which was reflected in the popularity of cyber, cyberpunk and generally futuristic looks.
As a general rule, the colour scheme features a lot of pastels including lilac purple, baby pink as well as holographic and glitter finishes. There's a lot of crossover with Vapourwave and holosexual aesthetics here as well as inspiration from Japanese anime, video games and bold minimalism. The best examples of fashion and visual aesthetic can be seen in Eurodance and pop music videos from this period, like "No Scrubs" by TLC and "Barbie Girl" by Aqua.
HOW DO I WEAR Y2K FASHION?
For inspiration, we've got to look at who was popular in the late 1990s and 2000s Style icons include pop stars like the Spice Girls, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and Destiny's Child. These celebrities would wear the latest fashions of the day like crop babydoll tops, halter tops, low rise jeans, mini skirts (like, seriously mini), bucket hats, small sunglasses and velour tracksuits. Incorporate some of these pieces into your wardrobe, or look to iconic movies of the 2000s like Legally Blonde or Mean Girls for more outfit inspo.
It wasn't all pastels though! The late '90s and 2000s was the height of nu-metal where bands like Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park, Korn and Evanescence became super popular. Some typical nu-metal fashion essentials included caps, baggy jeans, bondage pants and tracksuits so give these a go if baggy streetwear is more your speed.
