Oh man, this thread is dredging up memories. Tight-rolled pants? Check.
Parachute pants? Check. Hammer pants? Check. (However, I only wore my Hammer pants twice then traded with my cousin for an awesome necklace.
I think the most horrific fad that I bought into was the whole flouresent colored shirts/sweaters, worn with ::ack:: stretch pants with the wonderful stirrups, jelly shoes and the cheap, colored, pearl-like necklaces that are actually *tied in a knot * at the bottom. Flourescent and black jelly bracelets, GIGANTIC earrings, Swatch watches of the most unholy color combinations and of course the entire ensemble was brought home by slapping on United Colors Of Benetton perfume.
Can I get a barf smiley please?
I only wore that crap my 8th grade year in a desperate attempt to fit in.
Freshman year I did start in with the Coca-Cola shirts (nice move Coke! I hope you paid your PR/Advertising team well) After that I toned down my attempts to get with the “In” crowd and started dressing more alternative…so you know, I was trying to be different by wearing what all the other “alternative” kids were wearing. I’ll let someone else explain the attire.
