13 fashion disasters all Irish teen girls faced in the noughties

You were the coolest kid in first year.

BEING A TEENAGER in noughties Ireland was a fierce unstylish fate.

1. Combats

The more pockets, the better. Bonus points if you could zip them off into shorts.

2. O’Neills

Red, white, navy, black, you had to have em all. Perfect teamed with a denim jacket and a glowing white pair of Adidas shell shoes.

3. Adidas rip offs

An absolute must-have in 90s Ireland. You weren’t quite a teen yet, but if you were lucky enough to get some hand-me-downs from your siblings… JACKPOT.

5. Crimped hair

You weren’t a real teenager until you burned this creased pattern into your hair at one stage or another.

6. Body glitter

Smelly and sticky. Perfect, better lather it all over ourselves.

9. Nope hoodies, flared jeans, cords

THE coolest brand in Irish teen girl history. But did those cords have to be SO wide? You couldn’t even see your shoes.

13. Jelly sandals

They’re having a comeback but they will never be as aspirational as they were when you were a kid in the 90s. You may have even kept them into your teens…
