The best way to describe the Y2K era, is a very intriguing and quite controversial timeframe for fashion.

While it’s certainly a memorable fashion era; with its futuristic styles and daring looks, it’s also an era that many people have a lot of mixed reviews about.

Some people find the timeframe to be an epic moment in fashion, that showcased unique self-expression; while others find the timeframe to be quite tacky.

It’s no secret that Gen-Z and late Millennials have been raving over Y2K styles, all over social media platforms such as Tik Tok and Instagram.

Y2K styles are here to stay in 2022, and one of the best places to fulfill your Y2K fantasies, is by heading to your local thrift stores. The resale fashion realm has been growing at an exponential rate; and in the next 5 years, it’s expected to surpass fast fashion. At your local thrift stories, you will certainly find Y2K styles that are on trend, highly individualistic; and of course very affordable.

In addition, you also have the convenient option of thrifting online. You can check out vintage marketplaces such as Etsy, or reselling platforms such as Depop; which is extremely popular amongst Gen-Z and Millennials.
