The level of love for the Y2K aesthetic is closely related to your age. If like me, you wore the Y2K style during the Y2K, odds are that the memory is too fresh to embrace it with joy. If the Y2K is vintage for you, the trend looks fresh and exciting. I clearly remember looking for *the perfect* cargo pants, after all the side pockets had to be perfectly sized. Back in the 2000s, just like today, the cargo pants add a sports/outdoorsy vibe to the look. But depending on the fabric and the design you can create cool outfits in different styles, from tomboy to minimal chic.
