Who wouldn’t want to welcome the era of early 90’s and late 2000’s and the time that was associated with candy colors, sequin fashion, crushed shimmer skirts, crochet and studded western gowns and dresses. Yes, that was truly the fashion era that was eye-catchy, vivacious and flashy. Bootcut pants, ruffled mini dresses, blingy tops, silk scarves and jazzy belts were the hallmarks of the era that is roaring back. The trend is gaining momentum on the ramps, on the streets, on the silver screens and at fashion parties. Though slowly but surely, the Y2K fashion era had started making a comeback for a while now but now it is in full swing in its reformed avatar.
Multi-colored pins, scarves, hats, tiny sunglasses, mesh-tops and crushed couture are once again into fashion and seeing an upward trend. Items of clothing created in satin, shimmer, sequins, lycra and crushed fabric are becoming mainstream once again and for great reasons. While earlier it was all glamour, this time it is a mix of glamour and leisure- definitely a association of different generations having different energies and spirit.
Millennials still hang on to the 90s trend for that easy, flashy, and not-too-distant style statements. Today girls and boys are easily channeling their inner teen with wide-legged jeans, aggressive pink and blue, metallic fabrics and other style sensibilities that mark the Y2K trends. Wearing denim-on-denim, front-tie top, tie-dye prints, pleated skirts, and the old-French style bandanas; the style statements of the tech-loving youth and men and women remind everyone of the experimental Y2K aesthetics which is back with a bang.
The best part is that the old trends can have a retake with a twist and that is what fashion and style is all about. By pairing your bell-bottoms with a tank top, layering your top with a shirt and teaming it with a satin or shimmer skirt, wearing corset tops to look chic and comfy or by embracing teeny-weeny t-shirts with quirky quotes or characters; one can easily rock the Y2K’s distinctive style. That being said, it can be added that rather than being nostalgic, one can simply have fun without being extravagant. You really don’t need to invest a lot and yet you can make the most of it. Shiny fabrics and bright bubblegum shades like blue, pink, orange and lavender make you feel glam and cute for your parties and outings.
Micro-mini, long, knee-length or maxi skirts and gowns can add to your style quotient and make you feel super fresh. And not to miss the translucent slip dresses or tops of Y2K era that are perfect for steamy dates or night outs can let your imagination go wild in 2022.

It’s all about hopping onto this bandwagon in your own way and personal style.
