If you didn't rock one of these styles, then you're lying.

Jojomecoco on Reddit asked the community what fashion trend defined the 2010s, and here's what people FONDLY (and not-so fondly) remembered.

1. The feathers-in-your-hair trend had a little moment in 2010-2011.

2. Patterned leggings and leggings in general absolutely took over during the 2010s.

3. Side bangs were still poppin' between 2010–2013, but slowly faded out of style.

4. Flower crowns flourished in the 2010s.

5. High-low dresses also had a style moment.

6. Chokers came back STRONG between 2015–2016.
