Y2K is a big trend this year and these accessories are returning to the spotlight.
By Yvette E
Y2K is a fashion movement among Gen Z that focus on early 2000s style. The 2000s style relates more to movies of that time rather than actual fashion trends. If you do want to do Y2K style right, you need these accessories in your arsenal. Remember fast fashion was not a thing back then.
The baguette bag became the Y2K accessory but in actually there were some designers that were very coveted at this time.
Coveted among the youth at that time, everyone wanted a juicy bag. The simple velvet and embroidery jumped out on every corner.
This brand made a comeback 2 years ago. A staple brand of the 2000s, the pleather bowler bags in bright hues were in high demand. Check out the brand at vondutch.com.
Rhinestoned and loud, this brand clubhouse status made it desirable.
The queen of Kitsch jewelry, her pieces went for $150+! Daisy chain necklaces and butterfly pendants were her MO! Shop her items at tarinatarantino.com.
Vivienne Westwood pearl necklace
One of the early jewelry pieces of the brand, this costume jewelry item is currently sold out on her website but secondhand sellers still sale it. Watch for fakes, several knockoffs are circulating.
Aviators by Rayban were the coveted brand at the time but most people seem to be wearing 70s style clouds instead of the actual rimless styles of the time.
Remeber, fast fashion was not a thing in 2000s where internet shopping was just taking off and H&M, Zara and other fast fashion brands only landed here after the Great Recession (2012). We had to go to the store to get these items.
Happy Hump Day,
