I love a good throwback photo, no matter how cringeworthy my poses or outfits. In hindsight, the fashion of the early '00s took a toll on us all, and some of the trends we swore by, from Juicy Couture tracksuits to True Religion jeans, have slowly faded over time. (Though if you follow the runways, then you know truly no garment from the past remains in the past—just take a look at the re-emergence of these '90s trends.) For fun, let's revisit some of the crazy but great trends (or so we thought at the time) we wore or begged our moms to let us wear in the early 2000s. After checking out the looks ahead, you may just call mom to ask if she kept any of your fashion relics from the early aughts.

There were many It bags of the 2000s, but the Chloé Paddington was the first It bag my 13-year-old self ever wanted, but never got. It seemed like everyone owned this style, from Michelle Trachtenberg, pictured here at an event in 2005, to Halle Berry and Nicky Hilton. And if you lived in NYC around that time, there were also plenty of Paddington counterfeits on the streets—not that my mom ever bought me one of those either, but I digress.
