    Back when girl was putting the ~sharp~ in Sharpay.

    1. First of all, if you were a kid in the early 2000s and you didn't secretly pine for a pair of sequin ballet flats, you're a liar:

    These babies were allllll the rage.

    2. It was also a time when asymmetrical dresses were one of the coolest things you could wear to homecoming or prom...

    3. Unless you went in on a totally strapless dress:

    And you got bonus points if it was metallic.

    4. The 2000s were a simpler time, back when you could easily accessorize with a lil shrug top:

    5. Or when you could easily change up your vibe and get a little emo with a few well-placed black accents...

    6. Or go for more of an Avril-sk8r-boi look with some knee-high socks:

    7. No matter what, you had to have a good belt game...

    11. In fact, can we just appreciate how leggings went with literally anything in the early 2000s?

    You could even wear them on the red carpet, apparently!

    12. And it was game over for literally everyone else if you had the good sense to match them to your camisole:

    Necklaces, bracelets, tops, you name it. (Also, hi Miley!)

    15. And if you went so far as to wear a skirt over a pair of jeans, you were a bona fide TRENDSETTER, ya hear??

    16. Straightened hair was usually the name of the game...

    17. As well as a good, solid side part...

    18. And let's be honest — there was just about nothing edgier back then than wearing a cool tank top to a big occasion...

    19. Unless it was a cool graphic tee, of course!

    Show of hands if you still have your old fave.

    So, to recap: the 2000s were a wild, well-layered time, and we have the one and only Sharpay Evans to thank for giving life to all of the best trends of the era.
