In retrospect, the 2000s were a time of glaring fashion failures – how could we have believed at the time that glitter tops, brown lipstick and flared jeans were wearable, especially in combination? The icing on the cake, however, were the accessories that we thought were necessary (or at least beautiful) at the time. Diamantés on fingernails and even teeth, oversized earrings and belly button jewelry completed our 2000s outfit, and we hope that these „treasures“ will never make a comeback.
If you dare to look back: These were the 20 worst accessories of the 2000s!
#1 Remember those weird scrunchies?
#2 Or those artificial braids that were supposed to make your hair look thicker?
#3 Hair bands that actually didn’t push back the hair
#4 Diamantés all over the place! For example on our fingernails…

#6 We wore ties like necklaces
#7 Toe rings seemed like a good thing
I wear a toe ring, which is so 1995. I know this. But I have actually worn it since 1995 so I just keep wearing it! pic.twitter.com/asUNmMyDF4
