Shoulder pads

These popular sewn-in garment enhancements swept through the 1980s like a plague infecting every blouse, dress, and blazer.

-

Harem pants

We all made fun of MC Hammer’s parachute pants back in 1990, but in recent years everyone from Gwen Stefani to Heidi Klum have sworn by their drop-crotch pants.

 

-

Fannypacks

These unflattering waist pouches have always been a “fashion don’t” commonly associated with tourists.

 

-

Ed Hardy

With fans like Jon Gosselin and the cast of “Jersey Shore” Ed Hardy gear acts sort of like a radar telling you who to avoid at all costs.

 

-

Fancy track suits

Adidas warm ups are still considered classic, but the early 2000s was all about Juicy Couture. Some ladies preferred terry cloth, many were velour-loyalists, and others liked words written across their butts.

-

Trucker Hats

These foam front/mesh back baseball hats have been around forever, but we can thank Ashton Kutcher, Justin Timberlake, and Von Dutch for making them insanely popular in the early 2000s.

Furry boots

Rapper Flo Rida may have swooned over girls in the “boots with the fur,” but we think they make ordinary humans look like a Muppet.

-

Scrunchies

In the late ’80s most girls had at least a dozen scrunchies in different fabrics (at least one was velvet) to match with different outfits. American Apparel has tried to revive them, but thankfully most women are now too ashamed to wear them in public.

Sneakers that exercise for you

Since the Kardashians would willingly endorse toilet paper (no, really, they have!) we’re not surprised they partnered with Skechers Shape Ups, the sneakers that supposedly tone your body as you walk. It didn’t take long for experts to confirm they’re not only a hoax, but they can actually damage your ankles.

 

-

Pacifiers During the ’90s rave days, people sucked on colorful pacifiers like infants. Apparently this was to prevent teeth grinding when on drugs like Ecstasy, but soon there were pacifier necklaces rings and earrings too.

-

Visible thongs

Combine the popularity of lowrise denim and thongs (thanks, SisQo) and stretchy colorful panties were poking out of jeans everywhere. Bum cleavage is typically not appreciated in public.

HAHAHA…I KNOW WE ALL HAVE INDULGED IN SOME OF THESE FASHIONS FAVORITES…BUT A FEW (VISIBILE THONGS) REALLY NEED TO DIE A TERRIBLE DEATH!!!
