Fashion has come a long way since we were dorky little, OC watching, Dunkaroo eating, handball playing, Blink 182 listening individuals. But before we get too far ahead of ourselves let’s take a look back at where we came from.
While you’re reading don’t forget give this nostalgic 00’s playlist a listen!
- Hot Dollar Slippers
The Crocs of our generation. Ladies don’t even try to pretend like you didn’t wear these because I know you had at least five pairs, each a more God awful colour than the last.
Sure we looked about as cool as Jamie Kennedy in Malibu’s Most Wanted but at least we were protected from the sun (well those of us who wore ours forward and the right way up).
Looking more like a head band than a necklace, this cheap ass piece of plastic was an essential must have for every girls late 90’s to early 2000’s wardrobe. Today, it is a hipster staple of a time long gone.
4. Spiky Front Fringes
Like a reverse mullet, this look says party at the front and sensible at the back, it also says I was a 12 year old boy in 2005.
5. Hairy Scrunchies
They looked nice on but also creepy as furrk. These undoubtedly were sentient beings plotting mind control over their wearers. But luckily, if you still have any lying around they make for excellent cat toys.
6. Frosted Tips
Feeling like you don’t stand out? Nothing says ‘look at me, I’m cool’ like a tonal gradient. As a golden rule, if it looks good on a Power Point background it is most definitely going to look great as a hairstyle.
7. Butterfly Clips
Forget Face cream, these magic little clips had the ability to make you look 10 times younger. The only downside is they also caused you to lose all respect as a woman.
8. Mini-Multi Buns
Because why have one bun when you can have a number of smaller ones? Omg so quirky. This look was often accompanied by forehead jewels and vibrant hair dye for extra alternativeness.
9. Supre Belts
What outfit would have been complete without a piece of material wrapped around our waist? This poor excuse for a belt was the perfect way to draw attention to our awkward pre-pubescent boobs. And for those who were low on funds, material headbands worked a charm as well.
10. Baggy Jeans
