Table of Contents

Do you miss the mid 90’s- the booming era of dot com? You are not the only one! Y2K fashion is another thing we absolutely miss from that era and there have been occasions when we were aching to rock the clothing from ‘Bring it on’ and ‘Legally Blonde’ looks but couldn’t because it takes tens of years for a trend to come back.

Why should you care about this chick-flick trend now? Because it’s coming back with a bang except this time it’s slightly more futuristic. Also, let’s admit, we all know it was bound to come back in style sooner or later; it was just a matter of ‘when’.

Britney Spears was our girl in action when it comes to pulling off Y2K aesthetics with utmost perfection. The other golden girls who nailed this retro trend were none other than Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City and the Bratz Dolls. Biggest influences? Our bet is ‘Mean Girls’ and ‘Gossip Girls’. But for this time around, our leading lady is Hailey Bieber who seems to have a knack for this pop culture trend. (And we love it!)

Our expert shoppers have rounded up a list for you all fashionistas to get up and be the diva from the mid 90’s and 2000’s. Let’s see what we’ve got!
