Many of us can agree that lockdown affected more than just our social lives — it deeply influenced our wardrobes. Now that restrictions have (finally) lifted, gone are the days of wearing the same pair of joggers 24/7. As the world begins to open up, we're witnessing a surge in outgoing and zesty fashion trends — many of which are revivals of years past. One that's really gaining traction? Y2K, or — in layman's terms — Year 2000.

According to a recent Pinterest study, searches for "Y2K outfit ideas" are up 230x, and the trending hashtag #y2koutfits is taking over TikTok with over 80.1M views (and counting!). For those who are having a difficult time remembering what exactly the aughts looked like, or for those who weren't even around yet, think: baggy jeans, scarf tops, square sunglasses, baguette bags, velour tracksuits . . . the list goes on.

In case you need help pulling off the look, keep scrolling to see how TikTokers are sporting the trend, and shop similar pieces for yourself.
