3 Y2K-Inspired Looks You Need to Wear This Summer
Plus: Everything you need to know about the sleek Galaxy phone they were inspired by
From boy bands and girl groups to neon gel pens and the infamous purple ketchup, the early-2000s were truly a colourful and nostalgia-packed time. Two trends really making a comeback from that era is the Y2K fashion and the flip phone, making the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 Bespoke Edition a trendy yet fashionable accessory to slide into your back pocket (literally so sleek and compact, it fits right in).
For all our fashionistas who use their sense of style as their main form of self-expression, the Galaxy Z Flip3 Bespoke Edition lets you match your phone with your personal aesthetic. Customize the back of your device, choosing between five different colours with up to 49 unique colour combos. Whether you prefer to go bold by combining vibrant hues like pink and blue or sleek with cream and yellow, the goal is to have fun and make it your own.
Playing tribute to the ‘cellphone as an accessory’ era (hello, flashy stickers and cute phone charms), you can customize your Galaxy Z Flip3 Bespoke Edition with different accessories like a flashy ring and strap cases1. Plus, let your mood and personality shine through the front Cover Screen, by picking between a range of clocks, wallpapers, colours or even GIFs. And did we mention its style with substance? With the Cover Screen, you can check your messages and notifications without actually opening up your phone— ideal for those with a lot on-the-go.
And, if you love capturing and sharing your OOTDs, the folding design of the Galaxy Z Flip3 Bespoke Edition is made for you — selfies and vlogs are a breeze when you can go hands and tripod-free with Flex Mode2.
For smartwatch fans, you can also mix and match your aesthetic or daily mood with the Galaxy Watch4 Bespoke Edition. With over 500 potential combinations3 of watch faces, finishes, colours, sizes and strap styles, you can easily sport a new look 365 days of the year. You can even switch between looks throughout the day—pop on your sports band for the gym, then swap in a hybrid leather one for a chic look at brunch4. Easy, breezy.
Ever wish you had a personal assistant? Galaxy Watch4 Bespoke Edition can help level up your daily routine with a bunch of super intuitive features available right on your wrist. From mapping your morning run to vibing to your new favourite playlist, the connectivity on Samsung Galaxy devices lets you do even more from anywhere.
Just like these devices, the Y2K-era was all about self-expression and having fun with your fashion sense. In celebration of this colourful period and the customization opportunities available with Galaxy Bespoke, we’ve curated three early-2000s-inspired looks that you need to add to your summer wardrobe. Scroll through our look-book below to get inspired, and shop for your own Galaxy Z Flip3 Bespoke Edition and Galaxy Watch4 Bespoke Edition.
Bring on the pleated mini
With summer in full swing, it’s time to bring on all the colour. Pair your favourite mini denim skirt (hello, pleats) with a vibrant blue cami and layer a sheer pink cardigan over top—we obviously opted for the one with a butterfly print. Let your ultra-customizable Galaxy Z Flip3 Bespoke Edition and Galaxy Watch4 Bespoke Edition inspire your accessories. Throw in a fun pair of sunnies, a pastel purse and some blingy pink heels to tie everything together.
Hello, flared jeans
Thank goodness skinny jeans are out and wider cuts are in—our legs really needed a breather. This pair of 2000s-inspired low-rise, flared denim is everything you’ve been looking for. To make it the centrepiece of your look, pair it with a classic top, like this adorable baby pink halter and then accessorize with the Galaxy Z Flip3 Bespoke Edition. From colourful clips and furry bucket hats to chunky Madden-style hot pink sandals and colourful gel rings, make sure to have fun with your look.
It’s Go-Go time
Ready to go bold or go home? This last look is really what dreams are made of. Pull out that statement coat you’ve been hiding in your closet—we went for a baby blue leather trench with a faux fur collar—and pair it with a fun skirt and a simple white fuzzy knit cardi. But the real showstopper of this look are these eye-catching white go-go-inspired platform thigh-high boots. Since you’re letting your clothes do the talking, you’ll want to go easy on the accessories this time with a soft velvet pink choker, baby pink sunnies, pastel gel earrings and rings. Before you strut out the door, ready to conquer your day, don’t forget to snap a selfie with your Galaxy Z Flip3 Bespoke Edition and pop on your Galaxy Watch4 Bespoke Edition (gotta track those steps)!
