Your teenage years can be quite tricky. You're physically changing, figuring out who you are and trying to look cool.
All the while, grown-ups living with ever-growing resentments tell you these are 'your best days'.
Keen to avoid ridicule, the majority of us just tried/try to fit in.
In the Noughties this meant wearing naff plimsolls, purposeless shuttered plastic sunglasses, and a forearm-full of increasingly meaningless rubber wristbands.
Having survived those tumultuous times, we thought it might be a laugh to look back on our naughty Noughties fashion faux pas.
I for one recall a park kickabout circa 2008 when more than 75 percent of attendees were donning a variation of one of those luminous-trimmed Topman buttoned-tees, which became all but inescapable for a while.
Indeed, there were s***loads of teen clobber trends back then, which all involved should now feel wholly ashamed of - see here:

Hopefully you've enjoyed this nostalgic laugh at our former selves, but remember, fashion is fluid.
Yes, many of us were young and foolish in the Noughties, but trends change over time, and the chances are a lot of the garments you're wearing nowadays will come back to haunt you in the future.
If you get it really badly wrong, you can live to regret your fashion choices over a much shorter timeframe:
Lord knows how those kecks will be looked back on in decades to come.
