I'm so sorry that you have to live through all this again.

Tick "Yes" if you went in on any of the following awful trends from the 2000s. Tick "No" if you managed to avoid them.

  1. 1. Were you lucky enough to have a pair of extra, extra low-rise jeans in your closet?

  2. 2. Did you proudly wear a pair of checkered Vans slip-ons in the school playground?

  3. 3. Did you yield, in a fleeting moment of weakness, to the Von Dutch trend?

  4. 4. Was this skirt an essential item of your wardrobe between 2004 and 2007?
  5. 5. Did off-the-shoulder tops manage to overwhelm what little common sense you had?
