Give your Insta feed a Y2K look!

From baguette bags, velour tracksuits to low-rise bottoms, there’s no denying that Y2K fashion is blowing up all over Instagram. But other than the style of the noughties making a comeback, the overall 2000s aesthetic seems to be all the rave. Think over-the-top Lisa Frank prints, RnB artist montage shirts, and kitschy collages ala “artista notebooks” of yesteryears.

PicsArt is definitely our favorite when it comes to achieving the Y2K aesthetic. This powerful app has a variety of template, background, and sticker options as recommended by many TikTokers.
