Short tights under long tops or miniskirts were basically a religion.
Uggs you wore everywhere – and certainly a day without a school uniform.
Ed Hardy anything – including the fake Ed Hardy if your spending money didn’t cover the real deal.
The Von Dutch trucker hats that you were sure would go with any outfit.
Or honestly, any trucker hat.
A Country Road duffel bag – or in a pinch, a Sportsgirl version – that was definitely too big for all of your belongings.
Dunlop Volleys which may have been the start of your burgeoning sneaker collection.
High-top Converse shoes were also in strong rotation.
The same goes for the Kmart or Big W canvas shoes that you would have in white, gray and black versions.
A pair of white slip-on Rabens were a class favorite around the same time.
Ra-ra mini skirts that were a feat of ruffle engineering.
You probably also had the same ra-ra silhouette in a denim version.
Jay Jays’ fancy and printed t-shirts were a staple.
Low riding bootcut jeans were, for a while, the only style of jeans you deigned to leave the house in.
Supré’s spaghetti strap tank tops come in just about any color available – so you can coordinate any outfit.
Super long tops – or super short dresses – over jeans.
Embellished mesh slides that shyly highlight your pedicure.
A brand name surf backpack much better than the official backpacks sold by your school uniform store.
This wraparound bow tie belt has been paired with all the latest dresses in your wardrobe.
Or wide stretch fabric belts because it’s impossible to leave home without this essential accessory to complete your outfit.
Stiletto heels you were sure were more comfortable and practical than full-fledged stilettos.
Any type of shawl or cape you were convinced of was so much cuter than a jacket.
Super cropped denim shorts you’ve been living in all summer.
Fluoro slogan t-shirts and tank tops that in hindsight made no statement except that you were a loyalist of Supré.
Any accessory that had a vaguely Louis Vuitton-inspired print, including counterfeit bags from overseas.
Nipple tubes that were always part of an offer for two for $ 20 at Supré.
Three Quarter Leggings You Wore Under all.
Jeggings when bootcut jeans and tights under skirts were officially deemed irrelevant.
Supré’s Knot Headbands that you added to your loot when you went to pay.
Flip-flops – and especially Havaianas – weren’t just for the beach or the pool.
Anything from Paul Frank was an exciting addition to your wardrobe.
And finally, reusable Supré bags that were used exclusively to transport your PE uniform.
