The aughts weren't too far back. In fact, Dawson’s Creek, Blink-182, and Abercrombie & Fitch are still pretty fresh in our memories. But perhaps what is truly unforgettable about the 2000s is its colorful explosion of style and sartorial choices that still govern us today. So here are five fashion fads from the early noughties that we can update and still wear now:
