16 Fashion Trends I Am Not Proud To Say I Took Part In

We all look back on pictures and wonder what made us wear certain things, but when all of your friends were doing it, you had to take part too. I remember asking my mom why she let me wear the things I did and she said there was no talking me out of it. Everyone was doing it so I had to too and I didn't care what people thought about it. Now I can confidently say that I wish I would've thought a little harder about what I was wearing. It does make for some pretty comical memories though along with some pretty funny pictures to go with them.

Leg warmers

This 1980's trend seems to keep circling back around. Why on earth I thought I needed to wear something to keep my calves warm is beyond me.

I actually still have a pink pair of these that have been sitting in the center console of my car for years now. They only come out in a time of desperate need when the sun is in my eyes or when the dark circles have come out to play.

Low rise jeans

I remember when high rise jeans became a thing and I was so hesitant to try them because everyone also wore low rise. I now thank my high rise jeans for keeping everything nice and tucked in. Low rise jeans were just not it.

Butt writing

We all had a pair of sweatpants or shorts that said something on the butt. Mine usually said Pink! on them. Oh, what a time to be alive.

Shutter shades

shutter glasses


These crack me up because I thought I was sooooo cool when I wore these. You couldn't even see out of them, like what?

Silly bandz

If you know, you know! EVERYONE was into silly bands, they were every where at one point and we'd always wear way too many of them at once.

Hair feathers

Hair feathers, wraps, tinsel, you name it. I had so many hair feathers at one point that I couldn't run a brush threw the top of my hair without pulling on the metal clamp that kept them in.

Bermuda shorts

plaid shorts


If you're a girl, every mom made you wear those awful plaid shorts that stopped right above your knee. I know had the glorious pink pair.


Gaucho pants


I was OBSESSED with gaucho paints at one point and I have no idea why.

Colorful skinny jeans

I remember begging my mo for a lime green pair and when she finally bought me them, I wore them maybe twice because I was afraid people would make fun of me.


choker necklace


I'm sad to say this trend made it to high school with me. You just can't make a choker look girly and cute. It always gives off punk rocker vibes.

Abercrombie, Aeropostale, Hollister

After the Justice and Limited Too phase, we moved on to these wonderful stores that were extremely cheap quality and ran too small. Fun times.

Why did we always wear these in the summer? I have questions, mom.




Uggs and skinny jeans or leggings, that was always a vibe.

Bad ombre

It literally looked like we dipped our hair in bleach...enough said.

We wore these with EVERYTHING, like what?

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
