Must-Have Y2K Outfits

Oops! We did it again… Y2K outfits are having their moment and we have all the low-rise, mini everything you can think of to complete the ’fits. Check out our fave 2000s-inspired looks below!

Y2K Baby Tees & Cargo Shorts

Don’t call it a comeback for cargo shorts & pants – because these Y2K staples never really went out of style. These classic pocket-forward pants and shorts are the ideal pick to start your late ’90s or early 2000s outfits. Just add a cropped Hey Baby Tee and a little bling like a bulky belt and chunky sandals for a laid-back look that’s soo hot right now. 

Crop Tops & Early 2000s Low-Rise Jeans

To put it lightly, we are crazy in love with the combo of crop top and low-rise jeans! This iconic ’fit brings all the early 2000s vibes with a must-have low rise, and when paired with a cropped cami it is *almost* too good to be true. 

Try the low-rise Baggy Wide-Leg jean for a laid-back take on a throwback style, then choose an on-trend crop top with textured fabric or cut-out details, and finish the Y2K style with strappy sandals.

Easy Layers & Mini Skirts

Look on the bright side, Y2K outfits can be as easy as 1-2-3. Just start with your go-to plaid or denim mini skirt, add a cropped tank top, then throw on a relaxed-fit denim jacket or cardigan for an easy layered look that’s as fly as you. 

Keep this ’fit extra fresh by adding 2000s accessories like beaded necklaces or bracelets and a trucker hat.

Camis & Vintage Jean Shorts

Take a chill pill with the easiest ’fit ever: camis and jean shorts positively made for summer. Try a cropped tank top made for soaking up the sun, and go with short shorts for a never-goes-out-of-style vibe.

Make this Y2K outfit better than ever by choosing bright colors for a bold look, and completing the ’fit with platform sneakers.

Must-Have Y2K Accessories

Sometimes it’s the little things – like Y2K accessories – that can make or break your ’fit, so add a little spice to your life with all the must-haves of this throwback trend! Go for printed scrunchies and hair clips, bold trucker hats, and even cute 2000s-inspired jewelry with butterflies and peace signs to complete your OOTD.
