TV and Movies·Posted on May 16, 202129 Times Teen Dramas Committed 2000s Fashion Crimes That We Were All, As A Generation, Culpable OfI could do a whole list just on The O.C., but I'll spare you that horror.by Hannah MarderBuzzFeed StaffLinkFacebookPinterestTwitterMail 1. This crop crochet cardigan, low-waisted jeans, bangle, and mixed-material lace top from The O.C.: The WB / Courtesy Everett Collection This is the first crochet shrug on the list, but not the last. 2. This low-waisted khakis/button-up tuxedo outfit from Buffy the Vampire Slayer: 20th Century Fox/Courtesy Everett Collection I actually can't tell if they're khakis or corduroy, and somehow I don't know which is worse. 3. This CLASSIC look from Glee that had basically every 2000s goth staple: atrick Ecclesine / Fox / Courtesy Everett Collection The red plaid jeans with zippers in random locations, the shredded muscle shirt, the beanie, the blue hair, the fingerless gloves...amazing. 4. This weird patchwork long-sleeve top (and long bulky skirt) that couldn't decide what material or pattern it wanted to use from The O.C.: The WB / courtesy Everett Collection Those really thick sweater sleeves were in for a bit, but I especially love their inexplicable use on a non-sweater top here. 5. This pastel-tank-top, flared-skirt dress that was definitely from Lilly Pulitzer or Juicy Couture from Degrassi: The Next Generation: CATV/Courtesy Everett Collection Those ribbons down the front too...why did we love this kind of stuff? And that triangle top...a staple. 6. This colorful pink-and-teal ombre, zebra-print zip-up that truly gave me flashbacks to another time from Glee: Carin Baer / Fox / Courtesy Everett Collection I had a friend whose room was entirely teal zebra print. It was awesome. 7. This polo, long skirt, bizarre bejeweled belt look from The O.C.: The WB / courtesy Everett Collection I just really want to know what's going on with this belt. 8. This sweater tied over the shoulders, polo shirt, pearl necklace, and barrette look that basically defined 2000s prep from The O.C.: The WB / courtesy Everett Collection Also, check out the eyeshadow that matches the purple of the shirt. 9. This crop top, big hoops, long necklaces, bejeweled belt, long shirt look that is honestly giving me 2000s Coachella vibes from One Tree Hill: Fred Norris/ Warner Bros /Courtesy Everett Collection If you swapped out the skirt, this could easily be 2010s fashion, but the skirt really lands it in the 2000s hall of fame for me. 10. These...oh god, how do I describe the horror below? These layered print...~lewks~ from 90210. The CW Tank tops over sleeveless turtlenecks were a new low. As for Silver....I actually think I had those exact tights in middle school. At least something about 90210 was realistic. 11. This ruched-neckline Hawaiian-print dress with a matching cardigan and choker from Buffy the Vampire Slayer: 20th Century Fox/Courtesy Everett Collection Those monks that created Dawn sure knew how teenage girls dressed in 2000. 12. This silk top, layered necklace, boot-cut jeans look from The O.C.: The WB / courtesy Everett Collection I think The O.C. might win for most spot-on 2000s fashion. 13. This belly graphic shirt, low-waisted jeans, and super-thin scarf look from The O.C.: The WB / courtesy Everett Collection If you didn't own a scarf that was too thin to do anything at all, were you even a 2000s girl? 14. This similar look but with a classic shoulder bag and leather jacket replacing the signature "I like music" scarf from One Tree Hill: The WB/ Courtesy: Everett Collection Ah, the days before all leather jackets became moto jackets. 15. This cropped sweater from One Tree Hill that DEFINED the 2000s. The WB The crop sweater was a STAPLE of 2000s fashion. As were low-waisted plaid pants. And see-through camis. Actually, I think if you asked me to draw a picture of 2000s fashion on the spot, I would just draw this outfit. 16. Those weird collared sweaters and structured suede jackets Brooke wore more than once on One Tree Hill. The WB I swear, everyone owned one of these stupid jackets. They still haunt me from the racks at Goodwill. 17. This scarf-and-crocheted-cropped-sweater combo that was apparently appropriate for a formal event on The Vampire Diaries. The CW I know the scarf was to hide a vampire bite, but that doesn't explain the GIANT FLOWER on it. Also, why did we like crochet so much?? WHAT WAS THAT SWEATER SUPPOSED TO ACCOMPLISH?? 18. This VEST (sorry, had a little outburst there) over a brown tank top with a matching layered necklace and suede boots that Serena wore on Gossip Girl. The CW Et tu, Serena??? YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO BE BETTER THAN THIS! 19. This bright orange and pink, paisley, fluttery, sequined..."dress" that Brooke wore on One Tree Hill?? The WB Orange and pink do not match, and I do not know why we thought they did. Also, I cannot imagine this abomination was comfortable. 20. These lingerie corsets Brooke and Peyton actually wore to a college party on One Tree Hill. The WB I did not go to college in the 2000s. Someone who did, please tell me if this was realistic college party attire. I have a sinking feeling it was. 21. This see-through tiered maxi dress over a cami, covered with a long red sweater and a scarf on The Secret Life of the American Teenager. ABC Family The saddest part is that I definitely loved this outfit when I first saw Amy wear it. FOR HER WEDDING, BTW. 22. This crocheted PONCHO Haley wore on One Tree Hill. That's right. I said poncho. The WB Where did she get this?? I would like to write the store a letter of complaint. 23. This long tunic top with gray jeans and weird ruffle sleeves from The O.C.: The WB / courtesy Everett Collection They always had these shirts at Hollister or Abercrombie, and I always bought them. Also...remember gray jeans? 24. This pink-and-white-striped, puff-sleeve, collared polo Rachel wore on Glee. Fox I'm pretty sure she got this from Limited Too. 25. This off-the-shoulder ruched top Haley wore when she threw a party on One Tree Hill. The WB Once again, it is the flower that haunts me the most today. I guess we just loved those weird fabric flowers on everything. 26. This bubble-hemmed bright-pink floral halter dress Blair wore to Bart and Lily's wedding on Gossip Girl. The CW Oh look, another flower made out of fabric. Even Blair Waldorf was not immune to their apparent charm. 27. This bright-orange floral button-up sleeveless top WITH A HOOD Annie wore on 90210. The CW I get Annie was supposed to be a fish out of water, but...they did her dirty with this shirt. Also, I'd like to take a moment and mention tank tops that were trying to be dresses, but did not succeed. Those had a Moment™. 28. This jean shorts over tights, gray vest over a long-sleeve double whammy Amy also wore on The Secret Life of the American Teenager. ABC Family Was...was she wearing a Morphsuit underneath this vest and jean shorts combo? Was the scarf meant to distract from that?? 29. And finally, this tube-top striped dress with a rope waist from One Tree Hill: The CW I think I had this beach coverup in 2008. Oh, the 2000s. A simpler time.
