Every decade has its distinct style. When we look back at some of the clothes we wore as children and young adults in the 2000s, we cannot help but wonder what was going on.

The fashion in 2000s mirrored pop-culture icons of that time like Britney Spears and rappers like 50 Cent and Eminem.

If you grew up in that time, these are some clothes you must have worn;

Yes, the ‘Ama Kip Kip’ and ‘My money grows like grass’ shirt was what male teens had to wear to look cool. These T-shirts were everywhere like grass. We were so happy to see them gone.

Those little platform shoes with an open toe in front were everywhere. How could you be a hot girl without peep-toe shoes?

Our eyes saw young men struggling to wear skinny jeans in outrageously bright colours.

The skinny jeans and the hightops were an unbeatable combination. It had young men with skinny legs in such big shoes.

Timberland boots were brown combat boots that were also popular.

Young girls wore this half jacket or bolero that wasn't long enough, and like a cropped jacket.

Yes, this was a time of notoriously chunky bangles as accessories.

It may seem as though we were afraid to wear mini skirts, so began this combination of miniskirts and leggings. At times, the leggings will not even be full length, it stopped at the knees.

For a period in the 2000s, the belt was a forgotten wardrobe item, young men let their trousers hang loosely and showed their boxers. This can be credited to the popularity of gangster rap.

Ultimately, if you wore any of these items then you were really fashionable in the early 2000s.
