Aesthetics Wiki

2K1, also called Dirty Flirty Style, is an aesthetic that was prevalent from roughly 2001 to 2004. This style bridged the gap between the Y2K Futurism and McBling eras, being a cross between the two styles. Raunchy "big red text" comedies, throwback jerseys, Minivan Rock, and Neptunes-type hip-hop production all surged at this time while Teen Pop was slowly being phased away. The term was coined by designer Steves Peeps in 2022.
