Do you remember the pants we used to wear back in the day? When I was in high school, I got this one pair of green Kid ‘n Play jeans and I thought I was the shiznit. I soon added a purple, and then a turquoise pair to my collection. 2 Hype!
I also fell victim to the overalls craze. I had this acid-wash pair of overall denim shorts that I would wear with embarrassing regularity. Mercifully, so was everyone else, one strap on, one strap off, because that was how the cool kids were doing it.
Same for your backpack. Two straps were for LOSERS (the development of chronic back pain the only true sign that you were willing to sacrifice for your awesomeness).
What else? The penny-rolled jeans. That seems to come around every 50 years or so. Hopefully I can remember how to do it so I can show my grand kids.
Fluorescent was in, then out, now I guess in again. I wish I would have kept my Converse All Star collection. I had a fluorescent orange pair, a fluorescent turquoise pair, and a yellow pair (I don’t know what my problem with white or black was).
Those hypercolor t-shirts. Here was a built-in excuse to go up and touch someone for no apparent reason, and it just so happened to coincide perfectly with my budding teenage years. Genius! Are those still around?
And you know I had the Vanilla Ice lightning bolts in my ‘do. Ice, ice baby.
