Everything old is new again—which rings true for the Y2K style that has inundated our social media feeds for the last two years. A flood of nostalgic style essentials—think butterfly clips, mini skirts, colorful eyeshadow, funky press-on nails, and all things early 2000s—has taken over our TikTok feeds, clothing stores, and now our streaming services.

Not Okay, Hulu's satire starring Zoey Deutch has taken nods from just about every reimagined Y2K style for its over-the-top trendy costuming. Between faking a trip to Paris for social media clout and hopes of winning the attention of stoner-slash-influencer and Dylan O'Brien, Deutch's character dons a series of 2021 micro-trends mixed with early 2000s nods. From Britney Spears-inspired space buns to zig-zag parts, every trend went viral on TikTok in the last year and heavily influenced Deutch's character. 

Butterfly clips are easy way to add an extra pop of color to a variety of hairstyles.


“Hair plays such a huge role in a character, especially for Danni,”Cynthia Vanis, the film's hairstylist, told Vogue. “We watch her go up and down in this film, and her hair helps illustrate where she’s at mentally. It tells a story.”

Pair this preppy argyle mini skirt with its matching sweater and a pair of loafers or boots for the ultimate schoolgirl vibe.


Aside from those chunky highlights, Deutch rocks plaid mini skirts à la Mean Girls and argyle matching sets that remind us of Clueless and shares Paris Hilton's penchant for low-rise bootcut jeans and platform sandals. 

The early 2000s girl staple, low rise bootcut jeans go with everything from baby tees to halter tops.
