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 HillsGossip 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

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.
