Y2K Fashion Accessories That Are Still a Must-Have in 2022

April 19, 2022

We’ve previously written an article about fashion trends that have come full circle. Although that article highlighted the influence Y2K fashion has on what we wear now in terms of clothing, we didn’t quite talk about accessorising.  

Accessorising is a big part of fashion, it’s the thing that takes your look from a nine out of ten to a perfect ten. The cool kids and fashion people have tapped into fashion trends from the past to give us some of their most interesting looks. 

1. Resin rings 

Everything that’s going to be listed in this article is a must-have, but most especially raisin rings. You can trust a raisin ring to elevate your look and bring out the youth in you.

2. Chain belts

Chain belts are interesting. I really don’t know how they work, but all that matters is how stunning they make outfits look. The girls that get it, get it and the girls that don’t, don’t. 

3. Multi-layered necklaces 

Multi-layered necklaces have been around longer than a lot of us young people and they never really left. In 2022, if you don’t own a pair, it means you know nothing about fashion and style.

4. Hoops/ chunky earrings 

Hoops are the baddies of accessories. They take you from looking like a babe to looking like a bad bitch. Best in fashunz.

5. Ugly glasses 

The fact that these are being called ugly glasses doesn’t mean they’re actually ugly. These glasses are usually designed to be cool, not fine. They are going to help you look really cool, even though they don’t do much to protect your eyes. 

6. Bucket hats

Gen Zers are single-handedly keeping the bucket hat industry in business. Bucket hats are functional and although they aren’t particularly cute, they work.

7. Mini bags

What more can women store their patience in if not a mini shoulder bag? Mini bags have been serving us for years for multiple reasons like holding our millions, as well as the little tolerance we have for annoying people.
