Why is Y2K fashion popular again?

A graphic that symbolizes some aspects of Y2K.

In the early 2000s, we had our icons Paris Hilton, Naomi Campbell, Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears. But besides their personalities, what made them iconic was their outfits. For example, we have Spear’s jean dress that she wore with her ex-boo, Justin Timberlake. Another example is Campbell, who wore a leopard print short dress on her 32nd birthday. If it isn’t the Y2K outfits you enjoy, it is most likely the movies or makeup. 

For me, movies are one of the critical parts of fashion in the 2000s. During COVID-19, all we had was time, so people invested more time into these nostalgic movies and shows. Additionally, Y2K fashion is returning because it is a nostalgic time for people in their 20s and 30s. Those people can now go back to bright colors, low-rise jeans and animal prints without judgment. Inspired by these films,  many Gen-Z people who are now teens dress like the early 2000s to appreciate the time period they grew up in.

 The fashion sense during that time was magnificent and was shown throughout the movies we know and love. For example, “13 Going on 30 with Jenna Rink,” played by Jennifer Garner, has the iconic green, blue, pink and red dress with pinned hair. What makes the 2000s come back is that the clothing goods are affordable, bright and nostalgic. People enjoy reminiscing on the items and can relive the years they wore them. Y2K fashion is easily accessible on websites such as Depop, Mercari and local thrift stores. I hope this helped you gain some insight into why you and many others enjoy Y2K fashion.
