15 questionable fashion choices every 00s Irish teen made at the school disco

Oh no…

OH, GONE ARE the days.

1. A stripy rugby shirt

There were no innocent parties here. Both the men and women wore these stiff-collared shirts with pride on the dancefloor. Oh, it was innocent times.

2. Circle belts

True facts, walk into any Jane Norman shop in the noughties and you’d walk out wearing one of these.

3. Flared jeans

Again, no one escaped from this trend unharmed. At some point in every Irish person’s life, they decided whether to shift someone based on the width of their denim.

4. Studded belt

What could possibly make those jeans look any better? A studded belt, of course. Usually worn on the type of lad who enters the community battle of the bands in the same GAA hall the night after.

5. A football jersey

Usually the most gawdy and unwashed this lad could find.

6. Colourful ripped tops

I like this ripped top but I think it’s too risque so I’ll wear a different colour t-shirt underneath.

7. Butterfly clips

Bonus points if they sparkle. Gotta have the hair did.

8. Fake ties

How exactly can a tie be fake? When they’re sold in the jewllery section in Penneys.

9. A bracelet you got on holidays

Come on lads, they looked OK on holidays but now it’s over. Take them off.

10. Frosted tips

The male equivalent to highlights, and it was disastrous.


11. Hair bobbins

They never quite matched the actual colour of your hair, did they?

12. Graffiti t-shirts

Usually a faded grey colour from all the times mammy tried to lose it in the wash.

13. Knock off Louis Vuitton bags

You thought you were massive but you were fooling no one.

14. Long sleeved tshirts under polo shirt

Extra bleak if it’s just an illusion, and the longer sleeves are sewn to the shorter ones.

15. The good runners

The glow of white coming from the feet of the lads on the opposite side of the room may never leave your memory.
