From baguette bags to bustier tops, Y2K fashion is back in full force. Now we shine a spotlight on another iconic piece from the era that celebs have been embracing: the Y2K cardigan.

No, you’re not looking at a photo of Paris Hilton from the time of her reign as a noughties princess. This was taken just this August, and yet she looks like she just stepped out of the 2000s in her cropped cardigan and butterfly dress.

Olivia Culpo

The tinier the cardigan, the more Y2K the vibe. Last month, Olivia Culpo shared this series of photos taken while she was headed to the New York Fashion Week Revolve party. She was definitely oozing noughties vibes thanks to the cropped cardigan, which she wore partially open and without anything underneath. The baggy jeans added an extra touch of Y2K, too.

This hot-pink number is the Emi feather cardigan from Lovers + Friends, and it retails for $238 on the brand’s website.

Chiara Ferragni

The Italian influencer attended an event in Saint-Tropez last July wearing an embellished black cardigan and a mint-green mini skirt. She kept all but one button undone, which was a very noughties thing, and she didn’t wear anything underneath, too.

Swipe to the fifth photo and you’ll see her carrying another Y2K icon: the crescent bag. Except for her strappy heels and jewelry, all the pieces were from Miu Miu. The embroidered wool cardigan retails for $2,100 on the brand’s website.

Camila Cabello And Dua Lipa

Also in July, Camila Cabello enjoyed a beach day in Florida wearing a cropped, tie-front cardigan and a matching mini skirt over a black bikini. The entire look is from the Frankies Bikinis x Gigi Hadid collection. Get the cardigan for $140.

Dua Lipa was wearing a matchy-matchy set as well when she posted this photo on her Instagram in August. The outfit consists of an orange cardigan and high-slit mini skirt, both from Diesel’s Resort 2023 collection.

Hailey Bieber And Whitney Port

In early August, Hailey Bieber was spotted out with husband Justin, and for her casual date night look, she chose a cropped blue cardigan and black cargo pants. The top, which is from Italian luxury house Marni, is available on SSENSE with a $665 price tag.

Also last month, Whitney Port enjoyed a day out in New York wearing a black crochet cardigan from Peruvian label Mozh Mozh, which she teamed wide-leg pants and a straw bag. Swipe for more pics.
