The 00s really were an interesting time for fashion. Here are some reminders of the biggest trends of the decade that'll make you both laugh and cringe... 

 1. Circle belts

Nobody wore belts to actually, like, hold up their trousers or anything. We just draped flimsy bejewelled circles around our hips because it looked so chic. 

 2. Low-rise trousers

Simon Cowell was basically the only person in the world who owned a pair of high-waisted trews in this era. 

 3. Baker boy hats

In their defence, this was a big improvement on the bucket hats of the 90s. 

4.  These super-boring (and pretty unflattering) vest tops

 We had about 11 different colours in our wardrobes. 

5.  Gypsy skirts

Totally nailed that boho look, girl. 

6.  Velour tracksuits

 Comfortable AND cool. We vote this one to make a return. 

 7. Ridiculously over-the-top ponchos

 We’re talking patterns, colours, fringing… 

8.  Sassy slogan tees

 Why say it to their face when you can have it written across your chest?

9.  Painful-looking halternecks

 The risk of wardrobe malfunction was HIGH. 

 10. Trucker caps

Von Dutch was the ultimate dream - so much so that it has had a shock rival among streetwear influencers in the past couple of years. But back then, you could always get a high street knock-off while saving your allowance. 

 11. Cargo pants

 Generally paired with an extremely tight top. 

 12. Beaded necklaces

What better way to finish off an outfit? 

 13. Coloured and/or printed tights

 Oh, we were just so edgy. 

 14. Waistcoats

Yep, and VB was especially into these back in the day. 

 15. Really, really thin and pointless scarves

Thinking of it, they were probably a strangulation hazard. 

 16. Ugg boots

Great until it started raining. 

17.  Bandanas

Ideal for when you couldn’t be bothered to wash your hair and still a street style favourite.  

18. Fishnet… everywhere

There really was no escaping the fishnets 

19. One-shoulder tops

Because having one naked arm on display was simply the height of sexiness. 

20. Sweatbands on our wrists 

And not when we were in PE, either.
