I am hungry for more 2000s fashion. So, I want to see YOUR photos from this decadent decade. Please don’t keep them to yourself — upload your old looks, and let us live (again)!

Maybe you were a scene kid, and liked to wear band tees with teased hair and colorful tights just like Hayley Williams during the early days of Paramore.

Perhaps your style was more like the iconic Kyla Pratt’s on her hit show One on One.

Or maybe you kept it basic like Miley with a shirt/dress over classic jeans, and wore studded belt and messenger hats when you were feeling a bit more edgy!

Or did you keep it classic like Kelly Rowland with her red highlights and Nelly with his Timbs, extra-large shirt, matching sweatband, and iconic face Band-Aid?
