They almost never accurately predicted your mood, but these rings were all the rage back in the day.
You might want to hold your horses before buying a pair of these pants. They may be fine for jockeys, but they serve no purpose for anyone else.
Although we’ve since graduated to bigger and better headphones (think Beats), all the cool 90s kids wore these around their necks when they weren’t listening to their favorite jams.
What do you get when you cross a skirt with shorts? A skort! Fortunately, the unattractive offspring of skirts and shorts are rarely seen off the tennis courts today. At least they were good for keeping elementary school perverts from looking up your skirt on the monkey bars.
Sarah Michelle Gellar took on much tamer creatures before battling vampires. Butterfly hairclips were once all the rage among party girls or anyone who wanted to add a feminine touch to their outfit. Now they look ridiculous on anyone over the age of 10.
Doc Martens were just right for adding a bold touch to a girly baby doll dress or enhancing the cool factor of then-popular tapered jeans. Every badass owned a pair – even cartoon character Daria Morgendorffer.
What did lumberjacks and 90s kids have in common? They both wore flannel shirts. Often worn over graphic tees, flannel shirts became synonymous with the grunge movement.
Ah, CK1. One whiff of this fragrance will forever stir memories of the raging hormones and horrible dance moves of proms past.
Violence and fun formed an unlikely alliance in this childhood fad. Slap bracelets came in every color of the rainbow and fit wrists of all sizes, but they also caused their fair share of injuries.
When your hairstyle resembles a college diet staple, you know it’s time for a new look. Nothing about these curls was attractive, especially when they were bleached to resemble dry ramen noodles. Justin Timberlake will never live this down.
