With halter tops, baguette bags, and velor tracksuits from the 2000s seemingly coming back into fashion, a TikToker decided we should be reminded of the fashion gaffe of the decade too.
And let’s face it, there were a lot of them.
While we all appreciate the return of certain trends, Carly Aquilino (@ fashiongirl42069) wants an “open discussion” about the brutal crimes against fashion committed by all of us and our favorite celebrities two decades ago.
In her TikTok, she begins: “I absolutely love that the Y2K style is coming back, but there is some cherry-picking …
“When I think of Y2K, I don’t just think of crop tops and halter tops and low-rise jeans … I think of how we really wore every accessory at the same time,” she said, choking off the laughter.
Pictures of Disney star Ashley Tisdale from back then appear on the screen, wearing some loud prints and lots of accessories.
She added, “I think about how we’ve worn jeans under skirts and dresses. We walked out of the house like that. We said, ‘I’m going out with my friends.’
“One of the biggest and most popular accessories at the time was those weirdly large belts,” Olivia continued, showing two pictures of Kim Kardashian before her reality show days.
“We wore these for no reason. Every day. The outfit – no matter what you were wearing – you wore you wore the belt. “
She continues to describe the hat trend as “the most suspicious accessory we’ve had,” with a photo of Christina Aguilera wearing a bright pink hat, along with a crop top, cargo shorts and pink boots …
People loved Carly’s hilarious fashion analysis, with the video having over 1.1 million likes and 20,000 comments, in line with Carly’s thoughts on the Y2K style.

One person said, “Why was it all decorated with sequins. The pocket. The stretchable belt. THE. WE LAYOUT. WHY.”
“People put far too much aesthetics on an ungodly time. The Y2K era was an ungodly time in fashion and I loved every minute of it, ”wrote another person.
Another added, “It was like clicking the ‘Randomize’ button in a Sims game.”
While others were offering other iconic fashion trends at the time.
One person said, “Okay, but what about our skinny scarves ?!”
“DON’T FORGET THE WEST,” added another person.
Another replied: “The sequin bag that everyone wanted.”
It turns out that nostalgia isn’t always as good as we think …
