In fashion, old trends can easily become new again — and as of late, Hollywood's most fashionable stars are proving that the Y2K fashion trends of the early 2000s are once again having a major moment. Now, we admit this can be a bit polarizing as those who experienced the early aughts firsthand know that not all of the fashion trends were, er, wearable.
But nevertheless, the trends were undeniably fun, colorful and bling-centric! Whether you've been feeling nostalgic from your binge sessions of The Hills, Gossip Girl or even Sex and the City (Carrie Bradshaw has — rather unexpectedly — emerged as a big Y2K style muse) or you're just a Gen Z'er inspired by the Y2K fashion trends seen on TikTok (who isn't?), the ET Style team has curated the perfect Y2K shopping guide just for you.
While we have plenty of style inspo courtesy of the pop stars, supermodels and noughties icons who made them famous (we're looking at you Paris Hilton, Britney Spears and Destiny's Child), there are actually a number of fashionable celebs who are now bringing the Y2K trend back again — from the streets of New York to the feeds of TikTok. Dua Lipa, Rihanna, Bella Hadid, Emma Chamberlain, Hailey Bieber, Lizzo and Kim Kardashian are just a few of the stars who are breathing new life into these vintage clothing styles — and our spring wardrobes are about to be seriously stylish because of it.
From low-rise jeans and pleated skirts, to halter top styles, velour tracksuit ensembles (think Juicy Couture), monochrome matching sets, baby tee tops, butterfly motif designs, bucket hats and even glitzy accessory pieces, the Y2K era was chock-full of so many unique styles — and our celeb-inspired Y2K shopping guide is here to help you perfect them all.
As you start shopping for your spring wardrobe, consider opting for one of these head-turning, 2000s-style trends — loved by some of Hollywood's biggest celebs, no less.
Dua Lipa is the queen of recreating (and modernizing) vintage looks with a more modern feels. Her outfits are a combination of sexy and cool, often experimenting with everything from going out tops and low-rise pants, to more feminine styles like this delicate, butterfly-adorned ensemble in a bubblegum pink palette.
Let your spring wardrobe reach new heights in this sweet, Blue Butterflies Printed Mini Dress.
Everyone's favorite e-girl Emma Chamberlain has mastered the laid-back, more casual styles of Y2K fashion — and her neon, mini-skirt and cropped top combo is full-proof of that. Hair claws are also proving to be a go-to hair accessory for TikTok influencers and Gen Z'ers alike.
The effortless up-do is all the rage right now. Elevate your morning routine (and spring hair style) with a classic, neutral hair claw clip.
Leave it to Rihanna to embody peak-pregnancy style right when low-rise denim finally makes a comeback — she is one of fashion's most stylish celebs for a reason! The oversized denim and low-cut baggy jean trend can be styled in so many fun ways. Pair utility jeans with a cropped baby tee for a figure-flattering look or dress it up with a sparkly midriff-baring blouse for a Y2K-inspired 'fit.

Corset tops are proving to be one of the season's most popular statement pieces — and for good reason. With their sexy, shape-giving silhouette, corset tops and other bustier styles can easily be dressed up or down for a fresh day-to-night look — and Lizzo (aka our 24/7 fashion muse) is just the latest celeb to get in on the fun trend.
Lean into the celeb-loved leather corset look with this style's faux leather material.
Alexa Demie in Euphoria
While we're still reeling from thatEuphoria ending, we can at least hold on to all of the unforgettable fashion moments that the second season blessed us with. The HBO drama has no shortage of stylish high school students — but Maddy (played by Alexa Demie) reigns supreme in the realm of Y2K fashion, often opting for midriff-baring blouses and other cut-out dress styles.
