Y2K fashion originated in the early 2000s and it was extremely trendy to wear certain items of clothing like low-rise jeans, flare jeans, and lots of Juicy Couture. It started losing traction around 2014-2016 and it became extremely unpopular and hated to even be seen wearing low-rise jeans. Mainly because high rise jeans were very popular. Living through this fashion transition, at the time I was still very attached to my low-rise boot cut jeans but eventually they had to go. Y2K fashion became underground for quite a while until it resurfaced in 2021-2022! Destiny’s Child was a huge influence on Y2K fashion and they had a big role in the fashion trend. Many people today do not credit properly as to how the fashion trend began and the imitators will usually get away with it. Fashion trends will always resurface and I bet eventually we will see another era brought into the light.

    Hi,

    I totally agree with you, I think is happening already with flared jeans. I see these styles in store a lot lately because like you said; “fashion trends will always resurface.”

    I agree, the low-rise jeans are making a come back and loose jeans are as well. People will always recycle trends and Y2K is one of them. Now Juicy Couture is making a comeback in some stores and I haven’t seen anyone wear a juicy track suit yet but I bet we will soon.
