After seeing Y2K-inspired fits all over our social media feeds, we think it may be time to properly welcome this decade anew.

After the short return of the ‘80s and ‘90s trends, we all know what’s coming next—the early 2000s. Largely characterized by some very bold yet admittedly questionable styling choices, we’re pretty sure we’ve all held a number of reservations against this fashion era. Just remembering those ultra low-rise jeans and velour tracksuits somehow make us cringe. But in the world of fashion, trends will definitely boomerang back one way or another. And with fresh new set of eyes and some tweaks here and there, these fashion revivals are always a welcome change. After seeing Y2K-inspired 'fits all over our social media feeds, we think it may be time to properly welcome this decade anew.

Keep scrolling to see the updated styles of 2000s' most fun and fashionable pieces!

How to Pull It Off: With loungewear being 2020’s biggest hit, the iconic tracksuits are now back with a modern twist. Since nowadays we gravitate towards cozy and effortless WFH looks, our jackets and joggers have followed suit. And we’re glad to say that baggy profiles now supersede the dated skintight fit, so don’t be afraid to size up with your sweats to chill at home.

How to Pull It Off: Currently a fashion favorite amongst the influencer community, tube tops have made a strong return to our closets. As it now comes in various iterations from leather to ribbed-knit, you can belt it up with high-waisted trousers for a city chic look or dress it down with a flowy skirt for a summer vacay 'fit.

How to Pull It Off: Instead of a capri cut like before, we think this comfy utilitarian piece is best replaced with a full length and waist-cinching design. You can choose to wear it with a ribbed tank for a relaxed vibe, or tuck in a puff sleeve top for an edgier yet slightly feminine look. 

5. Baby tees

How to Pull It Off: Nothing epitomizes the early aughts like statement cropped tops and baby tees. Whether you pick up neutral colours or bolder ones, these are better worn with cool and casual bottoms. Think straight leg jeans, linen shorts, or printed midi skirts—you’ve got a lot of options for this one. 

6. Low-rise jeans

How to Pull It Off: We all know low-rise pairs can be very risky and intimidating, which is why we recommend you keep it classic and simple. Go for slouchier and looser silhouettes to create a more laid back and flattering look, then pair it with a blazer to retain that chic and classy style. 

7. Mini skirts

Now that’s a 'fit that embodies contemporary Y2K.
