What Is Y2K Fashion?
Aesthetic Y2K fashion style is inspired by the late 90's and year 2000, back when the internet was just starting to gain its popularity. The actual Y2K term is a computer programming shortcut that was referred to the syndrome of the year 2000, when computers were expecting to go crazy with the 1999/2000 date change. The Y2K fashion style is now best described as futuristic with a strong dose of 90's inspiration. Chunky sneakers, bright color sunglasses, high waist jeans, and shiny, often pink, green or purple materials are the iconic traits of this aesthetic style.
