Ponchos.

Especially colourful ones, with zero actual warming properties but loads of sequins to make up for it!

If you didn’t pose for a picture by putting your thumb in the belt loop, you weren’t doing it right.

Cropped trasksuit tops.

I don’t know a single ’00s girl who wasn’t *obsessed* with this lewk.

All-diamante everything.

From bedazzled jeans to sticking faux diamonds to our teeth – we were obsessed?!

Also known as capri pants – I think I can speak for everybody when I say I’m glad this trouser-length trend hasn’t made a comeback.

Please note: the red fringing, matching strappy sandals, and wide-sleeved top – major ’00s style points!

Belts. Belts with everything.

Especially when they weren’t even needed.

It was a time of mixed prints, textures, and colour-matching co-ords of the likes that had never been seen before – and haven’t been seen since, tbh.

Crimped hair.

Keeping certain sections of your hair dead-straight was key!

Fur-lined coats.

The absolute height of luxe styling, in my eight-year-old opinion.

Super long and sparkly scarves.

Let’s be honest – they did everything BUT keep you warm.

Denim maxi skirts.

Specifically: ones that you could tell had lived a previous life as a pair of jeans.

13.

Dresses made with this shiny, stretchy, and clingy material.

Unofficially, THE most unflattering fabric known to humankind – unless you’re Kelly Rowland of course.

14.

Colourful tights.

The more opaque they were, the better!

Colour-coordinated outfits with your pals.

Friends who slay together stay together (though this sadly wasn’t the case for Steps).

16.

Tiny waistcoats.

The only thing to wear over a printed tee!

17.

Trilby hats.

Nobody could rock a trilby like Alicia – but that didn’t stop us all from trying!

18.

Peplum tops.

They gave us back the curves that the low-rise jeans took away!

19.

And finally, this *exact* crochet hat.

Did it keep our heads warm? Of course not. Did we insist on wearing it through the entire winter? Absolutely.
