The noughties have been rebranded a bit this year. Numerous Y2K fashion trends—crystal belts, cowl-necks and more—have officially been adopted by the TikTok crowd and are experiencing a revival. And there’s one high-street brand, in particular, that has mastered all things Y2K. Monki always has playful, youthful styling, so it’ll come as no surprise that it’s fully embraced cut-outs, groovy prints and slinky silhouettes.
This week, the brand is celebrating its 15th birthday with 15% off everything from 9 to 12 December with the code BDAY15. We’ve combed through the whole website to create an edit of the Y2K trends we’re most impressed by. (They range from subtle to truly out there.) There are slinky little black dresses that remind us of Jennifer Aniston circa 2002 and black tops with interesting cut-out details. The band’s wiggle print (yes, that’s its official name) might seem like a bold choice, but this retro wave has proved hugely popular this year. The coat version sold out this week in just 24 hours. There are, however, jeans and boxy shirts in similar prints.
Keep scrolling to see the six Y2K trends we love from Monki, each of which are perfect for whatever your plans are this season.
1. Cowl-Neck Dress
The cowl neck is so very noughties, and you can go for a subtle take with the black slip or go all-out disco Barbie in the pink metallic finish.
