The 2000s fashion is back y'all! Micro skirts and low rise pants are making a comeback under the Y2K aesthetic. And you guys know, we got to try it out on Barbie! 

If you're new here, this is the 2nd installment of my doll series where I dress up Barbie into different fashion aesthetic. Last time I turned Ken into an E-boy, so this time its only right to make Barbie the main character. And what's a more fitting aesthetic for her than Y2K 

What is Y2K?

Y2K (short term for the year 2000) is first known as a computer bug that is thought to cause computers to stop working once we reach the year 2000. But nowadays, its more associated as a fashion aesthetic based on popular trends from the late 90s to the early 2000. 

Y2K aesthetic takes a lot of inspiration from the pop icons of that era like Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Destiny's Child. And classic movies like Clueless, the Mean Girls etc. My personal favorite are the Bratz dolls, which really personified the y2k style

There are so many looks I could pull off from this aesthetic but I settled for 2 outfits for Barbie. One is this slip dress, that I've seen a lot on Pinterest when searching up y2k style. Its very feminine and cute that I just need to recreate it for Barbie. 

Animal prints are synonymous to Y2k aesthetic, so I made another version of this dress in a cheetah print. You can make this exact same dress by downloading the pattern below. And watching the full tutorial on my Youtube channel

Next outfit is a top that I paired with a low rise mini skirt, cause what is y2k if its not mini and low rise. Majority of us millennials might not be happy that its making a comeback, but you gotta admit it looks on Barbie. 

That is all for this post, I hope you love the y2k outfits I made. And let me know down below if you want more, I might make a part 2. 

Thanks for reading!
