If you keep up with the latest in fashion (of course you do since you're reading WWW), you're well aware of the sudden resurgence of everything from the crazy era that was the early 2000s. From platform flip-flops to velour tracksuits, there are so many trends from the decade ruled by Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, and Lindsay Lohan that are fully back in action here in 2021. More than a few other trends have been making their way out of 2001 and right into our closets 20 years later—and this edit includes a ton of them.

While doing some regularly scheduled online shopping, I spotted a section on H&M's site dedicated to the throwback trend and simply couldn't hold back. The retailer is diving into the early 2000s look with plenty of items ranging from über trendy to more wardrobe basics. Flared leggings, halter necklines, and crop tops galore are what you'll find in the below roundup and if you're anything like me you'll be adding one (or several) trendy thrills to your cart immediately. Keep scrolling to see and shop the 30 Y2K items H&M is really selling me on.
