What is Y2K fashion?
Y2K fashion, also known as turn-of-the-millennium fashion, refers to the clothing trends that were popular in the late 1990s and early 2000s, around the time of the year 2000. This period was characterised by a futuristic, technology-driven aesthetic.
One of the most defining features of Y2K fashion is the prevalence of bright, bold colours - particularly neon. Other popular colours included metallics like silver and gold, as well as black and white.
In terms of silhouettes, Y2K fashion was marked by a focus on the waistline. Low-rise jeans, crop tops, and mini skirts were all popular, and many outfits are designed to show off the midriff. Tight-fitting clothing is also popular, especially in the form of stretchy, bodycon dresses.
Another key element of Y2K fashion was the use of shiny and metallic fabrics. Clothing made from shiny or reflective materials like vinyl, patent leather, or sequins is popular. This futuristic aesthetic extended to accessories as well, with metallic handbags and chunky silver jewelry being common.
In addition to these trends, Y2K fashion also included some nods to earlier decades. 1960s-inspired styles like mod shift dresses and go-go boots were popular, as were 1970s-inspired bell-bottoms and platform shoes!
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.
