Fashion from the Early 2000s Is Officially Cool Again

If you’re in your 40s and still have old clothes from high school packed away, your kids might want them.  Because early 2000s fashion is officially COOL again.

The trend actually started last summer.  But now influencers are latching on, so hashtags like “Y2KStyle” and “Y2KFashion” are trending.  A few examples include bright colors . . . wild t-shirts . . . low-rise jeans . . . Ed Hardy stuff . . . tiny purses . . . and velour tracksuits with “Juicy” on the back.

One reason it’s supposedly happening now is young people feel like the pandemic robbed them of their childhood.  And clothes back then were all about being fun and youthful.  But trends also just come back around like this constantly.

If you really want to feel old, here ya go:  Stuff from the Y2K era is now being sold as “vintage” clothing.  And a lot of recent shows and movies set in the early 2000s are being called “period pieces.”
