In a decade of fashion that included ultra low-rise pants, terry cloth dresses over jeans, and lots and lots of butterfly prints, we’re here to guide you through shopping Y2K fashion trends in 2021. Celebs might have dabbled in some of the riskier looks that aren’t exactly a breeze to pull off — perhaps they’re even bringing them back today! — but we wanted to curate items that are actually 100 percent wearable.
These clothes and accessories will fit right in with the rest of your wardrobe, reminding you of the early aughts but not forcing you into a look that feels over-the-top. They’ll also help you curate an end-of-summer wardrobe that is new and now — and not at all costume-like. From claw clips you can work into a standard outfit of a ribbed tank and jeans to fun-colored shoulder bags that will help you make a statement on a night out, find our picks ahead and choose the items that best speak to your personal taste.
