Shop: Small Backpack, $19.99

Why we love it: “Clueless” is generally regarded as the movie with peak ’90s fashion goals. However, 2000s kids grew up on “Wish Upon A Star” where Katherine Heigl carried the cutest tiny backpacks alone. Snag this one from H&M to fit your daily essentials when you’re on the move.

Shop: Lip Smacker Coca-Cola Lip Gloss Set, 5 Pack, $8.49 (Orig. $16.99)

Why we love it: Lip Smackers was likely your first introduction to makeup, so you’ll be happy to know the brand’s lip products are still alive and well. This yummy set includes glosses in famous soda flavors.

Shop: Morphe X Lisa Frank 35B By Lisa Frank Artistry Palette, $30

Why we love it: 2000s kids remember swiping up Lisa Frank folders, lunchboxes and more. In 2020, Morphe collaborated with the iconic brand on a makeup collection. You can snag the rainbow tiger eyeshadow palette for $30.

Shop: ASOS Design Shearling Roll Back Bucket Hat, $26

Why we love it: Bucket hats are one of those accessories that are having a moment right now. Since the days of NSYNC and The Backstreet Boys, bucket hats have been a staple. For the nostalgic 2000s person, this Y2K accessory is favored by everyone.

Why we love it: Tube tops are effortless, and while they super popular in the ’90s and the 2000s, the style lives on. Dress this one down with low-rise Lizzie McGuire hip huggers or dress it up with a blazer.

Shop: Juicy Coututre Anniversary Hoodie, $145

Why we love it: There may be nothing more 2000s than a Juicy Couture velour tracksuit. In celebration of the brand’s 25th anniversary, Juicy relaunched a new take on the iconic 2000s “fashion uniform for Beverly Hills.”
