NewJeans is one of the hottest fourth-gen K-Pop groups, and they've captured the hearts of many with their talents and youthful energy. Everything they do becomes the talk of town—their music, their dance moves, and most especially, their ~effortless~ style. NewJeans' OOTDs are the *perfect* combination between Y2K and contemporary, headlining all the hottest fashion trends that we're obsessed with ATM.

So if you need inspiration for your next 2000s-inspired OOTD, let NewJeans' outfits walk you through the basics of pulling off Y2K fashion:

7 Y2K-Inspired OOTDs We're Copying From NewJeans Members

  • Solid colors and retro patterns.

When putting together your outfit, don't be afraid to experiment and make bold choices. From the lime green baby tees to the flower-printed trousers, Hyein is always incorporating an element of fun in their outfits. Bring that same energy into your aesthetic with retro patterns and chunky footwear!

  • Bare your midriffs!

Haerin *loves* baby tees! They can always be spotted wearing a midriff-baring top, whether in conceptual looks or in their airport fits. For your next OOTD, pair a low-rise pair of jeans with a cute baby tee or crop top. If you feel self-conscious about baring some skin, high-rise jeans work well with these pieces! 

  • Try denim on denim.

Hyein offers a  minimal take on the denim on denim trend with a light wash denim button down and a denim jacket on top. To recreate this fit, wear your favorite low-rise jeans with a denim top and experiment  with different washes and silhouettes that suit you.

  • When in doubt, go mini!

When incorporating Hanni's signature aesthetic in your OOTD, a mini skirt is definitely the way to go. Bonus points if it is a tennis or pleated skirt that adds a little drama while you walk.


  • Accessorize, accessorize, accessorize.

Hyein's style tip: When you think you have enough accessories, add even more. We're talking friendship bracelets, charm necklaces, sparkly barrettes, zig-zig headbands, the works!



  • Rework that jersey!

 Haerin is the new fashion MVP, sporting jerseys and other sportswear that are reworked into crop tops and shirt dresses for their music video of "Attention." For that cool-girl look, pair reworked jersey with knee-high socks and matching sneakers!


  • Look for the things that glimmer.

If you prefer a futuristic approach, incorporate ~*metallic colors*~ and ~*shiny fabrics*~ that will dazzle up your OOTD. From metallic high-waisted pants and halter tops to shiny mini skirts and luminous dresses, this versatile trend is an oldie but a goodie!
