Our latest editors’ style guide is all about the Y2K trend, as we channel nostalgia with velour tracksuits, micro-mini skirts, tinted sunglasses and more.

The Velour Tracksuit
The iconic velour tracksuit has made its way back into our wardrobes. The comfy set is ideal for casual outings, weather you’re taking a walk or going shopping with your girlfriends. We’re styling SKIMS’ “Sienna” colored set with a pair of matching tinted sunglasses from Raie Eyewear, along with Vivienne Westwood’s pendant necklace for the full nostalgic style. The low-effort look is complete with Salomon’s technical sneakers.
Low Rise Everything
Thanks to Miuccia Prada, the low-rise look is one of many trends that have made their comeback over the past few seasons. For this outfit, we’re wearing Danielle Guizio’s baggy jeans with 2000 Archives’ fitted heart tee, along with a pair of sneaker-heel hybrid shoes. Achieve the full Y2K look with a cap and a satin shoulder bag.
The MTV-Inspired Look
This MTV-inspired fit is for your weekend night out. Style Miu Miu’s micro-mini leather skirt with Peachy Den’s backless top adorned with toggle straps. For a head-turning look, add a pair of knee-high lace-up boots (our favorite is from Ann Demeulemeester), a sleek shoulder bag and a nameplate necklace.
Euphoria is undoubtedly one of the buzziest shows that blew up the ’00s fashion trend. One of our favorite outfits include Maddy’s exposed G-string looks. We’re replicating the style with Savage X Fenty’s X-Ray Vision G-String and Miaou’s Rex Pant. Finish the fit with Courrèges’ pointed tank, JIWINAIA’s pearl earrings and Prada’s derby shoes.
The Return of the Micro-Mini Skirt
We’re highlighting the micro-mini trend with this look, which features a Courrèges mini-skirt with cut-out details. Add pops of color with Helmut Lang’s polo top along with EYTYS’ Gaia “Astro Blue” heels. Accessorize with silver pieces including Grace Ling’s Butt Bag and Completedworks’ earrings and bracelet.
