So, we have something to admit. We’re ready for the 2000s to make a comeback—well, in some ways. Maybe it’s the Gossip Girl reboot on the horizon, or perhaps it’s just our deeply rooted nostalgia for all things New Millennium, but there are a few early aughts trends that are coming in hot this summer and we’re not mad at them.

Turns out, a handful of fashion brands are taking throwback trends and making them feel truly fresh again. Plus, style icons including Bella Hadid, Elsa Hosk, and Kaia Gerber are taking the lead on styling the decade’s essentials like claw hair clips and crop tops. From shoulder bags, bucket hats to yes, covetable baby tees, these are the 2000s trends we’re welcoming this summer with open arms—and wardrobes. Like they say, fashion repeats itself. So you might as well just lean in.

Tamagotchi, check. Cherry ChapStick, check. You can carry all your 2000s essentials in these trending mini shoulder bags that take us right back to our days of hanging out at the mall.

3. Tankinis

Pre-teen you was on to something. Tankinis are making a comeback this summer, and not only do they remind us of family vacations, but they also provide some extra coverage for those hopefully soon-to-come beach days.

4. Platform Sandals

It’s finally time to treat yourself to those platform sandals just like the ones you loved in the Delia*s catalogs. Not only do they provide a few fun extra inches, but they’re comfy for summer hangs too.

5. Bucket Hats

Equally cute and practical, a bucket hat is a summer wardrobe arsenal must-have. We’ve already seen Bella Hadid and Kaia Gerber sporting ’em on days off, because they’re ideal for blocking both unwanted rays and bad hair days.

6. Cargo Pants

Yes, we mean those oversized, large-pocketed, pool-at-the-ankle cargo pants are back—but there are also some more wearable versions to seek out.
