Von Dutch hats.

Oh, trucker hats...

2

Popcorn shirts.

I guess there's something magical about this 2001 item's stretchy one-size-fits-all properties, a year we all could have used a little magic.

3

Livestrong bracelets.

Somehow, a fundraising idea inspired by Lance Armstrong’s testicular cancer became an insanely popular ‘jewelry’ trend. He blinded us to their ugly just as he blinded us to his doping.

4

Rhinestones. Everywhere.

Even phones. Especially phones! The wealthy rhinestoned them because they were wealthy, the non-wealthy did it to appear wealthy...it was a confusing time all around.

5

Layering tank tops.

I remember doing this, and I have no recollection as to why.

6

Dresses over jeans.

It's almost impossible to believe this looked cool. But this looked cool.

7

Multiple popped collars.

Thanks a lot, POLO.

8

Shutter shades.

Thanks a lot, KANYE.

9

Asymmetrical striped skirts.

Why were they always striped?

10

Shoulder shrugs.

If there was an award for least practical item of clothing, these would surely win.

11

Gaucho pants.

*crying*

12

Drawing on your jeans.

I blocked this from my memory, but it's all coming back to me now...

13

Peasant tops.

When I think of Mandy Moore, I think of peasant tops. Both came and went in the same time frame; ashes to ashes, dust to dust.

14

Camo everything.

Also Avril Lavigne everything.

15

Cargo pants.

People argue that fashion is cyclical, but if cargo pants ever become trendy again I'm seceding from society.

16

Ed Hardy.

Back in Kim's Paris-Hilton-Assistant days.

17

Low rise jeans with exposed thong.

I want every girl who ever did this to take a minute and thank the Universe for not coinciding the "whale tail" trend with the iPhone.

18

Shiny clothes.

Especially Kimono-inspired shiny clothes.

19

Halter tops with attached ring-necklaces.

Imagine trying to explain this to kids nowadays?

20

Chunky highlights.

:'(

21

Juicy Couture velour jumpsuits.

Frankly, it's a mystery the entire Juicy Couture brand didn't die out with this trend.

22

Puka shell necklaces.

Puka shell necklaces.

23

Boho everything.

Idk.

24

Everything about this.

25

Also everything about this.
