10. And don't forget this unbeatable combination: whatever these pants were called paired with a lovely tramp stamp.

11. And of course, star tattoos on your elbows.

12. No belly-button ring? No problem! You can always get a rhinestone on your tooth.

13. Ah...colorful sunnies. Justin Timberlake paved the way for you.

15. And in warmer weather, people wore Capri pants and those little bolero jackets.

16. These "invisible" bra straps that strangled your shoulders (and were still completely visible!)

17. These Puma shoes with cleats were super cool.

18. As were these skateboard shoes, ESPECIALLY if they had extra-wide neon laces.

19. Because then they'd harmonize perfectly with the outfits Avril Lavigne and Kelly Osbourne are wearing here.

20. And, of course, an authentic Von Dutch mesh cap to really finish the look.

21. And maybe a slightly less authentic Louis Vuitton bag. You weren't made of money.

22. You wore undershirts as regular shirts...

23. ...and your pants hung around your knees and were shiny (for some reason).

24. You certainly got your money's worth out of your crimping iron.

25. And your dad's ties were worn with an undershirt and with confidence.

26. Pointy boots, jazzy baggy pants, and a halter-neck top. Truly the most '00s fashion combo out there.
