Remember the days where we spent our recess’ doing the Soulja Boy, and we’d rush home from school to chat with our friends on MSN? Ah, those were the good old days of our early teen years. Glorious times weren’t they? Well, based on these old fashion trends you’ll definitely have even more regrets looking back on the past.
Our mothers all rolled their eyes when we begged for a pair and looking back, we now know why. How hideous were the thick tongues and where the hell was the arch support!?
Remember when yoga pants became the big thing in 7th or 8th grade and every girl wore them? Of course, they aren’t complete without a massive hoodie, which brings me to my next point.

Neckties as Belts
Our older sisters used to wear them around their waists when they were younger, so, thinking we were cool we tried to pull it off too. But we were a few years late for that trend, thank God.
Let’s face it, you cringed multiple times reading this article and prayed everyone else forgot about these horrible trends too. But let’s be real, no one could ever forget about these glorious pieces. Although I don’t think most of these will be making a comeback, so we can all be thankful for that. And despite these horrible trends from my youth…
