    23 Things You Used To Wear As A Kid

    Girls of the '80s and '90s: Welcome back to your grade school closet.

    1. Brightly colored sweaters (usually with hearts on them — you love hearts).

    2. Goody Kiddie Barrettes were such perfect day-to-night accessories.

    3. And don't forget the animal ones!

    4. Saturdays were made for producing incredibly ugly — I mean, genius — puffy paint creations.

    5. Osh-Kosh everything!

    6. Remember these crazy-huge plastic charm necklaces?

    7. Most of your shirts had puffy graphics on them.

    8. These weirdo T-shirt doodads.

    9. And here's what you'd wear when it got cold out.

    10. But if it wasn't so cold — you were all about the fleece jacket.

    11. Summer meant little cotton dresses that looked like this.

    12. Paired with jellies, obviously.

    13. Here are those frilly socks you wore to birthday parties.

    14. At some point or another, someone gave you a Disney watch. Which you wore. But didn't know how to use.

    15. Floral pants were perfect for spring.

    16. Scrunchies!!!

    17. Every girl of this era had something — anything — with Minnie Mouse on it.

    18. You carried a velcro change purse for all those pennies. People just gave those away. Amazing.

    19. Did you also have crazy legging combos?

    20. Trading slap bracelets was the best.

    21. Little denim skirts were the LBDs of our generation.

    22. Then there were vaguely sexy tops like these, usually worn over leggings of the same color.

    23. Stick-on earrings. Fun in theory. Lost in five.
