In the ever-evolving world of fashion, jumping on a trend is risky business. You might look cool today, but tomorrow, you're out.
Just take a look at yourself 10, 15 years ago when you jumped on the following trends from the 2000s. You were young, and you wore your hair like a porcupine and popped your collar. Some of you might have even painted your nails black because the metal guys did it. (Okay, that's nearly unforgivable.) Today, we relive the horror of these trends from the 2000s, so that we history may never repeat itself.
1) LAYERED POLOS COLLAR POPPED COLLAR
What was worse? Wearing two polos at the same time or buying one that was pre-layered?

2) ED HARDY TEES
And Ed Hardy caps, and the Ed Hardy belts. Everything was ED HARDY back then.

4) WALLET CHAIN
Admit it: You only wore the wallet chains for the sake of being in, and you didn't actually have enough money to warrant such tight wallet security.

5) STUDDED BELT
You were considered the cool kid back then if you had one.

8) SEMI-SIDEWAYS HAT
Not sideways, and not backwards—wear it at juuust the right angle, and you were on your way to racking up major street cred. NOT.

9) BALLER BANDS
Who cares if it felt sticky when your arm starts to sweat? It meant that we were standing up for something. A rare disease. Animal rights. Basketball awesomeness. It just felt right...until of course you realize that you just paid for some sports brand P700 richer for what essentially amounts to a plastic bracelet.

10) SQUARE-TOED SHOES
It's just like wearing Jollibee’s shoes in school. Except they're black and shiny and completely hideous.
