Silly Bandz came in all different shapes and sizes. Trees, animals, sunglasses...you name it, they had the shape. You could trade them with your friends and you were nobody if you didn't collect them all.
Bieber rocked an American Apparel hoodie, so you needed one just like him. You had one in several different colors and you wore it every chance you could. It looked no different than a plain hoodie that you could buy at Target for half the price, but you didn't care. You were a belieber in this hoodie.
You didn't need glasses, but you rocked fake hipster ones anyway. Because nothing is cooler than bad eye sight, right? You also wanted to look like Zooey Deschanel because she was and always will be the coolest nerd ever.
You had frosted lip gloss in all different colors and you wore it every day. They usually had the word, "Freeze" in the title and often tasted like vanilla or mocha. The early 2000s were all about shine, shine and more shine when it came to your lips.
Britney, Paris and Nichole Richie all rocked a Von Dutch trucker hat. So, of course you needed to rock one too. Just recently, Kylie Jenner was pictured in one, but let's cross our fingers and hope that these hats don't make a comeback anytime soon.
You loved your pleather pants, even though they smelled really bad after you wore them and stuck to everything and you couldn't breath in them. You still loved them. Do you remember how hot you would get in those things?
In the early 2000s, pockets disappeared for a good five years, and suddenly all of our jeans were pocketless. It was an annoying trend because you had nowhere to put your belongings. Annoying, but they made your butt look great so it was worth it.
I would like to talk to whoever designed these horrible popcorn shirts. I'm going to go ahead and go on record to say that I have never ever in my life seen someone look good in one of these shirts. They look like a pinata, not a shirt or piece of clothing.
You were oh so cool because you wore your tattoo choker everyday. It helped you bring out your inner Gwen Stefani and made you feel super sexy and edgy. Extra bonus if your had a Yin and Yang charm hanging off it. Or any charm for that matter.
In the 2000s, halter tops were in and so were bandana shirts. Celebrities inspired us to wear bandanas on our head, around our necks and you could even wear them as a shirt. I would like to credit Destiny's Child for this trend.
You rocked that studded emo belt and you rocked it hard. Special bonus if you were listening to Dashboard Confessional and watching old episodes of My So Called Life while wearing it. Jordan Catalano would have totally approved.
Britney, Christina and Sarah Michelle Gellar all wore butterflies in their hair. You thought that they were super stylish, but they were really tacky and way too bright. This is yet again another trend that we are glad to have passed!
