In case you haven’t been scrolling through influencer feeds on Instagram lately, Y2K fashion is back in a big way this 2020. Baggy jeans, baby tees, butterfly accessories are back in style—aka it’s cool to dress like a Bratz doll all over again. Thank every Gen Z personality online (we're looking at you Emma Chamberlain!) for bringing back the noughties as some of the era’s most-worn and talked about trends are experiencing a resurgence via cool OOTDs and #aesthetic selfies.
A staple top to sport back in the early 2000s was a cropped cardigan, which you can opt to wear as is or over a tube top or baby tee. Unlike the traditional modest cover-up, the '00s iteration is purposely tight and plays on a skimpy aesthetic. Local influencers like Jamina Cruz and Bea Marin have definitely hopped onto the trend, while models like Kendal Jenner and Bella Hadid have been spotted out and about with the style on the regular.
So if you have yet to find the perfect cropped cardi to complete your look, shop these online stores that sell everyone’s favorite top du jour.
