It is safe to say that Y2K fashion has officially become “A Thing”. The late ’90s pop aesthetic and cyber aesthetic that flooded our Instagram and TikTok feeds this year is now appearing in our closets. Do you need proof? Amazon is a hot spot for items like furry buckets, clawed hair clips and gold chain anklets. As of August 2021 the majority of Amazon’s most popular fashion products fall within the Y2K-era vintage-inspired category. (As an older millennial, I didn’t think I would call the Y2K aesthetic “vintage”, but here we are.)
We sourced 12 top Y2K fashion products for you to add-to-cart. Amazon can be overwhelming. These accessories and clothing have gone viral, and they are highly rated by customers. We have a wide range of products, so every product has at least a four-star rating. It includes classic gold hoop earrings, which 27,052 people have rated, as well as a baggy sweater Guy Fieri would love, and solidly-constructed New Balance dad sneakers. We swear that the 2021 Y2K picks are chicer than ever 20 years ago.
