Charlie's Angels - 2000, Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu.


Private Icon: Charlie’s Angels

The crime-fighting trio were coordinated in a slew of Y2K ‘fits.

The 2000 cult-classic film Charlie’s Angels not only starred our favorite trio of elite private investigators but also some of the best fashion we’ve seen on the big screen. Despite their high-risk day-to-day tasks, the crime-fighting crew was often seen in elevated black-and-white looks, camo-printed ‘fits, and, of course, beloved Y2K styles, from studded denim to gradient sunnies.

A classic black-and-white outfit was never boring on our favorite crime-fighting trio.

These high-waisted bottoms from Express are exactly what our Charlie’s Angels would wear. For a more modern approach, pair them with its matching cropped blazer.

Dad Shirt
Cotton On

Natalie Cook loved a good white button-down, and this one from Cotton On is not only budget-friendly but it comes oversized for a more comfy fit.

Edwina Boots

And you have to complete the outfit with a pair of square-toed shoes. The Edwina boots from Vagabond are made with leather and have a sturdy heel.


Camouflage never looked so good before our beloved Charlie’s Angels.

You can cop a camo-printed vest for an unbeatable price on ThredUp, with so many more to choose from on the resale site.

Cargo-style bottoms are the latest throwback style to make a comeback, so why not get them in camouflage?

Los Angeles Apparel

A cropped tank is a wardrobe must-have, so you might as well add this forever top in cool chocolate brown to your closet now.

A custom engraved pendant necklace? Yes, please!

The trio made gradient sunglasses and studded denim jackets the “It” items of 2000.

ICYMI, Dylan’s studded denim jacket is coming back on our trend radar.

Of course a Y2K ‘fit isn’t complete without some gradient sunglasses. Urban Outfitters just dropped a pair that’s so on point.
