The Y2K trend made its big comeback in 2021, and it’s definitely not going away any time soon. Think bubblegum pink mini skirts, chunky jewelry, quirky baby tees—basically, anything that screams early 2000s nostalgia. The flashy aesthetic is nowhere near the minimalist trend we’ve seen in previous years, but fortunately, we’ve got plenty of fashion inspo to draw from.
If you’re not sure where to start, you can always count on Gen Z content creators to *slay* this retro style. Below, check out some Filipino influencers who will convince you to jump on the Y2K bandwagon ASAP:
1. Ashley Garcia
Ashley Garcia has nearly half a million YouTube subscribers for a reason: She knows fashion. Her IG feed is a treasure trove of Y2K outfits that incorporate pastel hues, stylish co-ords, and graphic patterns.
2. Bianca Gan
Y2K is all about bold designs, and Bianca Gan isn’t afraid to mix and match. Like most of her OOTDs, this one has two different prints in the same color. We totally love her playful yet effortless approach!
3. Ida Anduyan
This ‘fit from Ida Anduyan shows us that neutral colors can channel Y2K vibes, too. She elevates a classic white halter top with chunky jewelry and platform shoes—a chic interpretation of the typically kitschy style.
4. Aika Agustin
A backless halter dress is a must-have for lazy, humid days. Take a page from Aika Agustin’s book and wear with your fave kitten heels for that Y2K flair.
5. Toni Sia
Here, Toni Sia sports the ultimate Y2K trifecta: baby tee, loose pants, and baguette bag. Whatever your style, you can never go wrong with this classic ensemble!
6. Kyla Javier
Still on the fence about wearing bright colors? Kyla Javier’s ‘fit is fun and bubbly without being too busy and overwhelming. Like Kyla, stick to two main colors and go all out on accessories.
7. Rachel Gania
We’re obsessed with how Rachel Gania’s daring style brings a touch of edge to the aesthetic’s youthfulness. In this particular OOTD, she dresses up an animal print slip dress with loose space buns and white combat boots.
8. Jessa Del Rio
Jessa Del Rio is looking extra preppy in this classic sweater and skirt getup. We especially love that she contrasted her navy knit top with a white pleated skirt—the perfect mix of nautical and Y2K.
