Sometimes it feels as if the world is still in the year 2000, and we’re watching paparazzi videos of Paris Hilton walking out of the hottest NYC and LA clubs.
The world we live in today is still obsessing over the y2k era that has shaken up the social media universe. The girls are still wearing low-rise jeans, blinged-out belts, tiny purses, strappy sandals, and competing on who has the smallest crop top.
Because of the hype around the y2k aesthetic, many fashion houses and brands have devoted their apparel to be based on the early 2000s era. Brands such as Prada have relaunched the oh-so-famous Nylon re-edition shoulder bag (that everyone is literally obsessing over). Many social media influencers via Tik Tok (especially) whole social media page are centered around the y2k style. Yes, I love the aesthetic and style ( I even own some y2k inspired pieces), but It has led me to think, will this aesthetic die down anytime soon?
A lot of styles from different decades and eras come and go all the time. But when will it become Y2k’s time to go? Due to the prominence that social media holds on our necks, This trend probably will not die any time soon. The way people have changed their whole lives to imitate this trend is astonishing. This era has probably the best fashion pieces and trends to pick from.
I love to see the girls wearing Apple Bottom Jeans, which may I say were a staple in my closet as a child. I also am loving small shoulder bags like the Louis Vuitton x Takashi Murakami pochette bag. Another accessory trend that is alluring to see is those Chanel CC Logo Transparent Sunglasses.
Many of these Fashionable and stylish pieces made during the Y2K era are being sold constantly through consignment shops like Vestiaire Collective, Depop, Used, The Real Real, and more. Even online stores such as eBay have an excellent array of vintage y2k inspired pieces for sale.
With that being said, I do not believe that the Y2K aesthetic and style will die any time soon. These were some of pop culture’s most significant and leading moments, and that era can never go away so fast.
