The 2000s had a lot to offer. Great music, iconic pop culture references and so many quintessential fashion moments. Even if you’re not a fashion lover or someone who pays attention to trends, you can likely spot a Y2K look from a mile away.

2000s fashion was big on low-rise jeans, Von Dutch trucker hats, rugby shirts, Juicy Couture tracksuits, graphic tees, cargo pants, dresses over jeans, halter tops — the list goes on. Brands like Baby Phat, Ed Hardy and True Religion were the holy grail and people often looked to style icons of the time like Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Beyoncé, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Christina Aguilera for fashion inspiration.

A lot of naughties-style inspo also came from the big movies during the time. Seeing the looks actresses like Lindsay Lohan, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, and Hilary Duff wore on the big screen inspired new trends among audience members as they aspired to recreate the looks from their favorite movies. In fashion, trends come and go. Much of what was considered “cool” in the 2000s is seen as cringy by a lot of people today. However, a lot of those Y2K trends are starting to make their way back into the limelight today.

If you’re looking to reignite the naughties in your own closet, here are seven movies from the 2000s with the best fashion.

This 2006 dramedy based on Lauren Weisberger’s novel of the same name, is about Andy Sachs (Anne Hathaway), an eager college graduate who gets a job as the new assistant to the powerful fashion magazine editor Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep), with Emily Blunt and Stanley Tucci in key supporting roles.

With the movie being based in the fashion world, The Devil Wears Prada is full of chic looks often seen on the streets of New York City in the early 2000s. Think knee-high leather boots, stacking patterns, chunky necklaces, layers, statement belts, and tweed caps. The Devil Wears Prada blends both elegant street wear with high-fashion, office-ready styles, inspiring fashionistas everywhere to want to work for a magazine like Andy.

This 2000 movie is all about a high school cheerleading team preparing for a national competition, starring Kirsten Dunst, Gabrielle Union, Jesse Bradford, and Eliza Dushku. Trends obviously ebb and flow over time, but with Y2K on the rise, Bring It On is a treasure trove of outfit inspiration.
