We have all at some point in our lives leafed through old photo albums and have been left completely shocked by what we were wearing. The early 2000s were a particularly gruesome period when it comes to fashion. What the hell were we thinking? What from today’s point of view can be described as plain weird, at the time was the height of fashion. We looked cool even if we were a bit obsessed with denim, didn’t we? Yeah, definitely cool. Here, let’s take a journey in history, and look at some of the trendiest-and not-at-all-embarrassing outfits that we wore in that time long past, aka about 15 years ago.

1. Ties aren’t just for men. We will wear them too. But we’ll do it our way.

4. Unfortunately, so was the denim skirt and leggings combo

13. Bandanas were the head accessory of choice. What? Pirates are cool!

14. No, I’m not delivering newspapers, I just like the hat

15. Super duper designer purses: these would never work today, you can barely fit your phone in there!

23. We liked the Chinese slippers too, but they didn’t really come with a sense of danger

fashion

24. If a shirt had a collar, it had to be popped!

fashion

25. Perhaps the silk and lace camis weren’t the best choice for a top to wear in public

fashion

28. Tiffany charm bracelets. Charming!

fashion

29. When mini skirts started to be considered too long, we came up with the micro mini skirts!

32. Gaucho pants. Not great looking. Great ventilation though.
