What is Y2K?
You may have heard ‘Y2K’ bandied around in popular culture, but what does the phrase actually mean? Well, Y2K is actually short for the year 2000. But usually refers to the late ‘90s and early-to-mid 2000s when it’s used in the context of fashion.

Whether you want to go all-out ‘00s or for a simple and smart '90s look, there’s no doubt that a pair of specs is your top must-have accessory.
