The early 2000’s were a time of gel pens, camera phones, and some of the worst fashion fads of history. Although it was just a mere five years ago, just thinking of the fashion trends of the early 2000’s are enough to make me squirm.

Like many of you I was a major culprit of these fashion “no-no’s,” a common offender of typical fashion code. Here is a blast from the past as we revisit some of the worst fashion fads of the early 2000’s. Try not to cringe as we time travel to a scary time in fashion history.

The fanny pack. An unflattering, waist hugging attempt at a purse. Commonly associated with geeky tourists, the fanny pack does not go unnoticed as one of the worst fads of the early 2000’s.



Perhaps used for its convenience and small size during travel or on day trips, the fanny pack was used by many, whether they want to admit it or not. Even fashion-icons like Rihanna once sported the fanny pack. As fashion-forward and unique as Rihanna is, even this Barbados beauty just could not pull off the impossible trend.

Designer tracksuits. Whether they were made by designer Juicy Couture or Victoria’s Secret’s PINK, tracksuits were a major hit of the early 2000’s. Preteens, teenagers, and even grown women took part in the trend.



Made of terry cloth or velour designer tracksuits were a failed attempt at sporty chic. Even though designer sport suits of the early 2000’s could be easily mistaken as jumpsuits or footsie pajamas, women of all ages continued to wear these unique outfits. Celebrities from Britney Spears to Jessica Simpson even wore these tracksuits.

Bra straps. Although they were labeled as “clear,” these bra straps were definitely visible. An attempt to replace the constant fixing and pulling at uncomfortable strapless bras, clear bra straps served as an alternative where you could wear strapless attire without the constant nag of fixing a strapless bra.

Clear bra straps turned out to be a better idea than an actual product. The clear plastic strap was clearly visible and came across as simply tacky. If you cannot deal with uncomfortable strapless bras then do not wear strapless attire, it is that simple.
