The fashion game in Y2K (Year 2000) saw a significant move towards maximalist styling.
Being almost loud with colors, textures, prints and surfaces was a part of high fashion styling. Who can forget the diva – Kareena Kapoor Khan for her fashion choices in her early days. She stood out among all and we still reckon with some of her then iconic looks. It was her and then Miley Cyrus from ‘Hannah Montana’.
They are your fashion bible to Y2K fashion and now, almost two decades later, Y2K fashion is back. Leather pieces, rhinestone tops, low waist bottoms, baby tees are all back in trend and every leading fashion brand has introduced this trend in their current catalogs and so has BoStreet.
If you are unsure of how to pull such a look with ease, Mitali Joshi, Lead Designer, BoStreet is here to help.
1) Cropped tanks:
We have seen the baby tee ensembles in almost all the movies and TV shows back then. Pick a cropped tank in colors like pastel lilac or cobalt blue and style it with a wide legged ripped denim, chunky flats, a baguette and top it off with a pair of retro sunglasses.
2) Mini skirts:
Mini skirts have been around the whole time but they were a huge trend in Y2K and have picked up momentum yet again. Both, an A-line fit or a pencil fit are great options to choose from, but for an all out Y2K inspo look, opt for checks in primary colors like blue or red and pair it with high boots, a mini backpack and a high ponytail. This look will scream Y2K.
3) Low waist bottoms:
We were first introduced to this trend in Y2K and both boys and girls embraced it wholeheartedly. This trend since then has had its highs and lows and is back now. While the bottom’s waistline is a personal choice, it suits best on girls with skinny body types. Low waist boot cut denims, or wide legged bottoms with fitted tops, strappy heels & a baguette would make a perfect look for a casual day out.
This is the trickiest of all trends. Pulling off a bright hue is always challenging, but we did it in Y2K and we can do it now too! The best way to ace the pink look would be to style it or pair it with an extremely minimal or non starking color. Let your pink take all the attention and be the highlight of your look and keep the rest subdued all the way.
Some Y2K drama added to your personal everyday styling is the easiest way to stay in vogue this season.
