Fashion Faux Pas – 2002

Fashion reached a new low 15 years ago when there was a hooker chic look consisting of overly tight everything with overly pointy-toed boots, laced up tops, low rise bell bottom jeans and micro minis or hot pants that looked like wide belts. Added to this was a dash of ripped up punk and a heap of boho hippy fringe with frosted, fried, hair and asymmetrical hems. Don’t forget to pile on some velour sweats and wear  underwear as outwear… Let us pray to the fashion gods 2002 is NEVER REVIVED.
