From baby tees to mini pochettes, the Y2K trend is back and popping up in our feeds now more than ever. In fact, if you hang out on Instagram a lot, then you'll know that Ashley Garcia is one of the biggest fans of the Y2K trend. So, if you're intrigued and curious on how to hop on the latest retro trend, Ashley's IG 'fits will give you plenty of inspo. Trust Ashley, you can do it, too, even with your most basic pieces!
Here are 10 of Ashley Garcia's Y2K-inspired outfits that will convince you to finally try the trend.
1. Lace tank top + Jeans
The usual tanks won't cut it for Ashley. They've got to come with dainty floral prints and lace trimmings, too! Oh, and peep that cute Motorola flip phone she used as a cute outfit add on! Clearly, it's all in the details that make or break an outfit!
2. Slip dress + retro sunglasses
3. Cardifgan set + Air Force 1s
A subtler Y2K outfit, Ashley wears a tie-front ribbed cardigan set with simple denim jeans. She turns the otherwise feminine cardigan piece into a casual look by matching it with a sporty pair of Nike Air Force 1 Shadow sneakers. Don't forget the cute snap clips, too!
4. Graphic pullover + Mini Skirt
Keep cozy with a nice printed pullover and mini skirt, as Ashley demos. The trick to make it on point with the Y2K trend, though? Finish the 'fit with scalloped socks and chunky platform sandals!
5. Argyle Sweater + Pleated skirt + Doc Martens
The Y2K look isn't complete with a preppy look. Check out Ashley successfully making the good old argyle sweater cool again when paired with a nostalgic pair of Doc Martens.
6. Hot pink top + Clips
What color says Y2K more than hot pink? As if that ribbon detailing isn't enough, Ashley leveled up the cute retro look with a pair of snap clips, too!
7. Loose tee + Chunky boots
Clearly, Ashley has a thing for the 2000s, and in case you missed it, her peg here is one of the hottest toys of the aughts: Bratz dolls! How cute are her printed tee and mini skirt look with the chunky knee-high boots, right? If you're not one to go all out with her kind of footwear, though, you can always rely on your combat boots to achieve the same vibe.
8. Baby tee + Denim mini skirt + Mini bag
Nothing screams Y2K more than the popular baby tees! Try it out and do as Ashlety does with this super cute combo. Reach for a denim mini skirt, grab the cutest tiny tote, and you're all set!
9. LWD + Socks + Mary Janes
School girl-inspire 'fit never looked this cute! We're taking notes from Ashley and trying out the Mary Janes from our childhood with adorable LWDs and leather accents. Of course, the thick elastic headband is also a must for this combo!
10. Halter top + Mini Skirt
It won't be a Y2K outfit inspo list without a halter number! We're loving how Ashley decked out hers—complete with a cute plaid mini skirt and simple silver trinkets—which you can easily take from day to night.
