The early 2000s were home to some truly iconic fashion moments. Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake wore their head-to-toe denim outfits, Bjork wore her infamous swan dress to the Oscars red carpet the same year, and just about everyone wore low-rise everything for the entire decade. Just because early 2000s fashion was iconic doesn’t mean all the trends can or should be repeated (like dresses worn over jeans—let’s please keep those in the past). Some Y2K fashion trends, however, are making a serious comeback right now and they’re about to be everywhere.
Just as millennials cling to ’90s nostalgia, Gen Z has been steadily reviving the trends of the early 2000s. Everything from velour sweatsuits and tiny purses to low-rise jeans are returning—and we honestly wouldn’t be surprised if people started trading in their iPhones for Razrs. With the same energy as Paris Hilton’s “Queen Of The Universe!” slogan tee, the spirit of the early aughts is officially back and sassier than ever. To offer some guidance on how to get in on the trend, we asked astrologer Lisa Stardust for the Y2K fashion items that are best for each of the 12 zodiac signs.

Juicy Couture sweatsuits were so popular in the early 2000s, Lindsay Lohan even wore one on the red carpet. Stardust says this is the perfect look for fiery and passionate Aries as they’re known to be super sporty and athletic.

You don’t have to go all out with pink velour and rhinestones to rock the Y2K aesthetic. “A simple slip dress will be a comfortable outfit for tender Cancer to relax in,” Stardust says.

The drama of early 2000s fashion is perfect for over-the-top Leos. To play up your “theatrical sentiments,” Stardust recommends rocking a coat with a faux fur collar for rockstar flair.

Tiny purses aren’t just a trend; they’re a lifestyle. “Pragmatic Virgo doesn’t like to carry extra baggage, emotionally and mentally, which is why a mini pocketbook is ideal for them,” Stardust explains.

From slogan tees (like Britney Spears’s iconic “DUMP HIM” top) to Von Dutch logo shirts, baby tees were another mainstay Y2K fashion piece. For artistic Libras, Stardust recommends finding a creative design to help you find balance in your look.

Sometimes, a killer accessory is the biggest power move of all. “Scorpios are the most domineering sign of the zodiac, so it’s a no-brainer that they would like to wear a chain belt around their waist,” says Stardust.

Hip-huggers are typically low-rise jeans that are tight around the hips and thighs and flared at the bottom—and they’re rather controversial. However, “Sagittarius rules the hips,” Stardust says, so don’t be afraid to try a pair of these on for size.
