The 80’s were very important years in music history. The 80’s brought a more visual experience to music. From exploding fireworks at concerts, to the greatest music videos produced on MTV, the 80’s made sitting next to the radio a thing from the past.

Blast from the Past: The Worst Trends of the Early 2000s

The early 2000s was a time where fashion was very... individualized, if that’s what you want to call it. From bandana crop top shirts to red carpet dresses that resembled night gowns, these trends were very different in the 90s and especially different than what we wear today. It’s crazy to think that some of the things that were trending only a mere 15 years ago are now things that we would never consider wearing. So with homecoming upon us and the theme being blast from the past, what’s a better way to get a good look at the past than admiring the worst fashion trends from the early 2000s?
