Subtlety takes a backseat when it comes to NASCAR fashion. If your style is bold, loud and colourful, then you do not need to look further than NASCAR apparel. Though it was in the early 2000s that NASCAR t-shirts and jackets started taking over the fashion world, they became a part of sustainable fashion with the rise of thrift stores. Originally
popularised by celebrities, mainly rappers like Pharrell Williams, NASCAR clothing is still bought by fans and others alike. Buying them second-hand made it possible for many of them to own their favourite brand without breaking the bank. Let’s find out why this over-the-top brand is loved by everyone.
There is nothing like a NASCAR t-shirt with its flashy logos and daring prints. These t-shirts are not for the faint-hearted and attract people who want to express themselves and stand apart from the crowd. The clothing is so idiosyncratic that you can love it or hate it but you just can’t avoid it.
Rappers were the first ones to put NASCAR t-shirts and jackets in the public eye for the people who didn’t watch the car races. Because of that the lovers of urban fashion and streetwear wholeheartedly embraced NASCAR outfits. The aesthetics of NASCAR jackets. is very similar to the streetwear fashion that is often featured in rap music videos.
NASCAR outfits are equally loved by high fashion and were featured in multiple runway shows. Celebrities like Gigi Hadid, Rihanna and Kaia Gerber have been seen sporting NASCAR t-shirts and jackets. Hence, it has created a fanbase for the brand among the Instagram crowd and Gen Z.

Y2K fashion took over our lives by storm back in the 2000s. Pop culture and consumerism were the major influences on fashion at that time. So, in a nutshell, Y2K fashion was the exact opposite of sustainability and conscious clothing. Ironically, the Y2K fashion trends are being revived by one of the most eco-conscious generations and the biggest proponents of secondhand shopping—Gen Z. Luckily for them many iconic outfits from that time can be bought second-hand or thrifted from the stores. Here are some tips to reinvent your Y2K fashion aesthetics through inexpensive yet authentic pieces of that era.
Dust off your denim
Though Y2K fashion is known for its infamous low-rise jeans, wide-leg denim was making a statement during that time too. Modern-day Y2K fashion enthusiasts are bringing back the wide-leg denim which looks equally cute with bucket hats and crop tops alike. If you are feeling a little too brave, you can also shop for pre-loved original Y2K low-rise and
boot-cut jeans as well.
It’s a go for Velour
Velvet Velour track sets were all the rage during the 2000s. All the celebrities were wearing them and it became a fashion phenomenon. Activewear is still in trend decades later. Buying them second-hand is the best way to stay fashionable and sustainable at the same time.
Unique urban wear
Be it retro jerseys or graphic t-shirts, urban wear with funky prints had a place of its own in the Y2K fashion hall of fame. Many famous rappers and boy bands had brands of their own which resulted in the popularity of those t-shirts. Today, we can buy retro and vintage t-shirts of that era from any major secondhand clothing store and relive the glory of Y2K fashion.
