Whether you want to dive headfirst into the world of Y2K fashion this summer, or you’re just looking for some pointers on how to add a touch of ’90s and noughties nostalgia to your fits, we’ve got you covered with our selection of style inspiration for some super fancy summer outfits.
This has to be one of the most iconic noughties getups, with brands like Juicy Couture rocked by the likes of Britney, Paris Hilton, and J-Lo on a regular basis back in the day. If you don’t want to go full velour, no worries — try mixing and matching your tracksuit. Pair some pastel velour bottoms with a cute crop top or baby tee, a pair of chunky gold-toned earrings, and some comfy summer sandals, and you’re good to go!
Y2K definitely has its own unique take on the double denim trend, with styles tending to lean towards matching sets in order to create an eye-catching silhouette. Flares and bootcut jean styles are big, with a fitted or cropped denim jacket or top. Match with your go-to pair of statement graduated shades to seamlessly finish off the look.
If you don’t want to go head-to-toe Y2K, but still want to incorporate the style into your summer outfits this year, accessories are the way to go. Give any outfit a pop of noughties vibes by adding a bandana, a choker, some butterfly clips, or an iconic baguette bag. Basically, channel Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City, and you’re well on your way!
Remember Bratz’s passion for fashion? Let’s face it, we all wanted to pull off some of those styles, and the preppy and colorful looks are well and truly back for the summer. If you weren’t here for it the first time around, hop on the trend now! One of the key pieces you’ll need to pull it off is a pleated, uniform-style skirt. They can be styled in so many ways: with a crop top, a baggy sweater, knee-high boots, or casual sneakers. Add a chic Parisian beret, and you’ll totally nail that Bratz aesthetic!
Do Y2K your way this season! We’d love to see your takes on the trend. Tag us in your best fancy summer outfits @mobilestylesapp on Insta, Twitter, or Facebook!
