4 months ago

Looking back at old styles is like taking a trip down memory lane. Once popular trends can now make us laugh, feel nostalgic, or inspire us to recreate some retro looks. In the early 2000s, many new trends emerged — some became classics, while others we’d rather forget. Let’s recall some of the popular clothing items from that era that many of us proudly wore back in the day.

1. Unlike today’s trends, women in the late ’90s went for a drastic approach, almost erasing their eyebrows through plucking.
