When you think about fashion trends in 2000’s surely all that can cross your mind is that were dark, dark times. Jeez, thank god those times are behind us. But we must never forget so that we wouldn’t repeat those mistakes. And really, who could even forget that fashion fiasco of Abercrombie skirts, girly baseball tees, tight polos, cowboy boots, peasant tops, fishnets and all the other horrors we had to witness, and shamefully admit, we even participated in? Let’s see now, which are the worst among the worst, the 10 trends that make us cover our eyes and are the distinct ones on the fashion pillar of shame.
The Unfortunate Velour Tracksuits
The essence of 00’s fashion disasters, we can’t really point our finger to what is the worst with this trend: the bright colors, in-the-skin of plush toy feel or brand’s logo across the bum. Curse you J Lo and Paris Hillton for making the world believe that sweatpants can serve for something other than going to the gym or in-house feeling sorry for yourself while eating a bowl of ice-cream.
The Terrible Newsboy Hats
Why Britney, why? Did you have to inspire teenagers around the world to make “cute” newsboy hats that will later embarrass them? God forbid that someone starts to blackmail them with those pictures. Frankly, we can’t imagine any newsboy would want to wear a bright pink hat, so why would we?
Speaking of Terrible Hats – Trucker
Thank you Ashton Kutcher and Pharrell for making this awful trend a big hit in 00’s. Since teenagers nowadays and in 00’s too don’t tend to drive trucks, we think these “pretty” hats should be exclusively reserved for truck drivers.
The OMG Low Rise Jeans
Well this pair of pants really put it all out there. Literally. You are fortunate if you don’t drop your wallet on the floor and have to pick it up, unless if you really want to show your goodies and the-go-with-low-jeans thong.
The all denim outfits
Why even think about what goes well with what? Just combine denim dress with a denim purse and add a denim cowboy hat. Voila: You’re a walking 00’s fashion disaster. This catastrophe looks even worse if a man decide to wear all denim. What were you thinking?
The “Sexy” Bare Midriffs
Well that’s just plain awkward. Whether the weird crop tops (buttoned shirts, puff sleeves, slogan tees, etc) where combined with low rise jeans or an Abercrombie skirt, there is no denying that instead of sexy the results were ridiculous.
The “Not-so-fun” Disco Halter Tops
That strange mish-mash of jewelry and clothes ruled even the red carpets for a time. Jeez. Step away people, a disco ball is coming through. Combine this party-like-its-the-1970’s piece with a pair of see-through heels and you’ve got a winner.
The Weird Bohemian Thingies
Back in 00’s there was a strange understanding of bohemian, and we could never call it a bohemian chic, rather a bohemian freak. From strange-looking and body-unflattering bohemian maxi skirts to slutty bohemian style introduced by J Lo, boho was desecrated back then.
The Dress over Jeans
Because a lightweight summer dress goes perfectly with jeans. Right? Wrong. It’s a 00’s illusion and you would even get some bonus points if you’ve chosen flare jeans.
Afashionable Asymmetrical Jersey Skirts
The early 00’s fashion misfortune, basically omnipresent in 2002 and 2003. Not only it was figure-unflattering but it was difficult to match with other pieces and looked like a five-year-old’s try to sew a fashion piece.
Never forget. Never repeat.
