Back when your style icons were Britney Spears and Katie Holmes. (There's a whole lot of halter in here.)
Slinky dresses with mesh overlay.
Impossible-to-wear backless dresses.
Teenie, tiny beaded purses.
These flamenco-like dresses with the ghastly fringe hemlines.

God-awful chunky mary janes.
Or even worse, glittery chunky heels.
Embellished gowns guaranteed to blind you.
Paired with an iridescent or tulle skirt like this.
Worn, naturally, with your upscale takeout purse.

And the go-to accessory was a choker.
But of course, the most popular trend: shiny (read: polyester) Jessica McClintock dresses.
Take a trip down memory lane that’ll make you feel nostalgia AF
