    2000s Fashion Is Making A Comeback — It Must Be Stopped

    Those of us who lived through it the first time have suffered enough.

    It is with the greatest regret I must inform you that the moment every '00s teen has been dreading has come: fashion from that era is coming back.

    We were all making fun of 2000s fashion up until 2 months ago what the fuck happened

    Twitter: @irationalised

    Here's the thing: so much fashion of that decade made absolutely no sense. It also looked good on very few people — those who were thin and basically no one else. There's a reason so many of us are still traumatized. So please, before it's too late, let's stop these trends making a comeback...

    1. Extremely low-rise jeans:

    They were usually paired with a crop top for maximum stomach exposure.

    2. And a visible thong:

    This often happened by accident, but we also deliberately made it happen.

    3. Wide-legged jeans:

    They always dragged on the ground and got all dirty and frayed and for some reason we thought that was good.

    4. Denim capris:

    Usually paired with heels.

    5. And satin capris:

    You got bonus points if they were ruched.

    6. Denim maxi skirts:

    Honestly there were so many crimes against denim in this decade.

    7. Fur-trimmed everything:

    Even if it's faux, it's not hot.

    8. Super long tops and tunics over jeans:

    This specific cut was everywhere.

    9. And skirts and dresses over jeans:

    You could never have enough layers in the '00s!

    10. Thick belts worn just below the boobs:

    They were 100% pointless.

    11. Or worn way below the hips, over tunics or dresses:

    Again, pointless.

    12. Cropped cardigans:

    Once again, pointless!

    13. Scarves worn tightly around the neck with incongruous outfits:

    Say it with me: POINTLESS.

    14. Handkerchief tops and skirts:

    So many of us tried it. So many of us suffered.

    15. And this specific kind of top:

    It looked good on Paris and Britney only.

    16. Trucker hats:

    Especially Von Dutch.

    17. Ra-ra skirts:

    The theme of so much '00s fashion was exposing our butts from one end or another.

    18. Uggs worn outside:

    As an Australian, let me say once and for all: ugg boots are slippers/house shoes.

    19. And absolutely everything about this look:

    The enormous camouflage pants paired with pointy-toed heels and a tank with a ribbon tied around the boobs, plus hoop earrings and THAT hairdo? So 2000s it hurts. Let's leave it there, I beg.
