Nail The 2000’s Trend In Designer Y2K Style Dresses!

First came the revival of 90s silhouettes, now in 2022 we’re going back in time again. That’s right – Y2K-style dresses are back! Luckily, whether you loved noughties fashion the first time around or not, there are plenty of designer dresses we know you’ll love today. Some are almost replicas of favorite dresses we stepped out in 20 years ago. Others put a modern spin on iconic 2000s silhouettes. Whichever you prefer, our edit has all you need to embrace the trend for the season ahead. We’ve even included a few shoe suggestions to complete your aughts-inspired ‘fits!

Get Set For Summer In Cami Y2K Style Dresses

When we think Y2K style dresses, cami silhouettes are always the first to spring to mind. Mainly because they’re just as cute and versatile now as they were back then! So, if you’re looking for a way to subtly yet totally successfully rock this trend, this is the way to do it. Our advice? Add the Nostalgia floral mini dress by Lioness to your summer lineup the first chance you get. It’s perfect for warm weather and whilst it looks perfectly reminiscent of 2000s frocks, that classic scoop neckline, low back, and floral print will never go out of style!

Meanwhile, the Wildside mesh slip dress by Urban Outfitters is the weekend dress of our millennium dreams! We completely adore its mixed print design and think you will too. Additionally, that high low hemline is oh-so naughties that we’re forgetting what decade we’re in! So, use this dress to elevate your warm-weather wardrobe but take it from us. You can go ahead and skip the part where you style it over flared jeans!

Chic Y2K Style Dresses To Pair With Noughties Inspired Heels

If you thought Y2 K-style dresses were anything but chic, think again! For example, the Brioni slip dress by All Saints is seriously elegant. Especially paired with the right pair of heels for your summer evening plans! Firstly, we adore its thin spaghetti straps, ankle-length hem, and delicate white hue with soft yellow florals. Secondly, we can’t wait to wear it with the Estelle slingbacks by Victoria Beckham (with 2000s-style kitten heels!) to accentuate the print.

Meanwhile, we think everyone should own the Serita cutout midi dress by Cult Gaia. Firstly, it’s giving us red carpet vibes for every stylish sitcom star in the 90s and early 2000s. Secondly, it looks stunning with flats sandals on vacation or with heels for a warm-weather dinner date. Finally, we recommend elevating that dreamy khaki green with gold accessories and heels. For example, the Anita 85mm leather sandals by Jimmy Choo would be perfect!
