Build Your Y2K Eyewear Style
The early aughts hype was all about flared jeans, crop tops, and sweatsuits with a side of sparkle and shine. We also can’t talk about the 2000s without mentioning the sunglasses scene, which played up everything from colorful lenses to luxe deets. If you want to throw it back while keeping it fresh, we'll give you the lowdown on how to live it up in Y2K retro style with your fave Quay sunnies.
Who said that only the ‘80s were about colorful vintage style? Candy-colored lenses are quintessentially Y2K—pair them with low-rise jeans and chunky platforms to see for yourself. Find a frame fit that you vibe with, then pick it up in your fave color to turn heads your way to channel those nostalgic vibes.
COME THRU and werk retro eyewear. This effortless cat eye, also a go-to silhouette in the ‘60s, features subtle invisible injection frames that’ll have you feline fine. It’s a statement piece on its own with plenty of mirrored + blackout lens options, but you can also keep it a little extra with some drip and lip gloss.
TTYL, we're leveling up in Y2K style. Turn up the color with retro glasses frames in a reliable square silhouette that'll balance out those popped collars and monogrammed tracksuits. Whether you flex your sunnies in pink or brown, the gold frames will give you that subtle bougie touch.
The sleek rectangle frame is an early-aughts trend that's here to stay, just like the classic square fit. Simple as its shape is, the deets and colors on these popular sunglasses turn them into statement-makers, even when paired with the simplest Y2K looks.
Get yourself an oversized rectangle pair that’s a TOTAL VIBE. Crafted with reinforced arms, a built-in nose bridge, and luxe metal deets, these premium injection frames will amp up your specs appeal. They’re versatile for both vacay OOTDs as well as your 9 to 5 fits.
Roll in NEW MONEY with a semi-rimless look. Acetate square frames and waterfall edges give these specs a standout vibe that’ll have all eyes on you. Wear them in a trendy blue or black tort to center your fit—keep it edgy with sequined everything or go laidback with a casual tee and cargo pants.
Y2K was also all about being a little extra and owning it. Channel the luxury with high-end Quays with luxe details, where you can enjoy premium frames with gold deets to keep up the hype and polarized lenses for all the bright times.
Stay on top of your aughts style game with ALMOST READY, a strong square with a combo injection + metal frame for extra durability. These bold squares come in tort, black, and ivory to give you options for picking out Y2K sunglasses to pair with your fave cami or metallic jacket.
GO OFF and keep it a little bougie. These bold specs have all the premium details you love from our luxe collection and are a go-to with their signature flat top acetate frames and cut-out deets—they're so good, you'll want them in tiptop shape to accessorize alongside your chunky belts and mini purses.
