As soon as the '90s comeback hit its fullest swing, we knew an early aughts resurgence couldn't be far behind. Topshop Unique is bravely charging forth into Y2K territory with the collection it showed in London on Sunday. 

Remember asymmetrical skirts and draped necklines? Well, dust off your high school wardrobe, because they're back. But just in case you didn't save the Express staples from your teen years, Topshop Unique has some rather chic upgrades, some of which are available to buy now. (Yes, about half the collection was see now, buy now.) In blush pink silks and floral chiffons, these dresses are a little bit cooler than the ones you wore to the school dance — especially the sexy, halter-necked, embellished number Adwoa Aboah wore to close the show.

The rest of the collection was inspired by an "urban traveller," which translated into a bit of everything. Lily Donaldson opened the show in a tourist sweater paired with loose, striped pants; Dilone's look proved you absolutely can wear a shearling coat over your bathing suit. It was all about sporty separates, piling on all the clothes you love at once. What could be more fun than that?
