6 Y2K Trends We're Loving at Monki Right Now

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. 

2. High-Shine Fabrics

This festive season, Monki is into high-shine fabrics, from patent to shimmery metallics.

3. Wiggle Prints

Monki’s wiggle print has been hugely popular this year. Both the coat and the jeans in this print sold out almost instantly.

4. Cut-Outs

This is the piece for those who only want to slightly dip their toes into the Y2K trend. We particularly love the crop top with cut-outs and knot detailing on the back.

5. Groovy Prints

If you really want to go for the Y2K trend, Monki has lots of groovy prints in vibrant hues.

6. Flares

These black Monki flares are proving hugely popular, and we can see why.
