The noughties were a time of great change. The decade following the dawn of the new millennium was a time of growth. Nowhere was this more obvious than in the world of fashion. Here are four fashion trends from the noughties that may seem a bit silly now, but that we can't help but to secretly miss.

California Prep

Before the days of Gossip Girl and Forever 21, teens from Los Angeles to Chicago trying to recreate the preppy California style seen on shows like The O.C. and Laguna Beach.

This entailed dropping big dollars at the chain store Abercrombie and Fitch, which has dwindled in popularity in recent years, especially after the company's CEO made some offensive remarks about plus-size women.

Lolita Style

In the late '90s, Britney Spears broke onto the scene with her debut single, "...Baby One More Time." Not only did the song launch her epic career, but it brought back Lolita style. From 2000 to 2010, we saw tons of grown women who were dressed as if they were on their way to the first day of third grade. We've definitely moved on now, but some of us can't help but to feel a little nostalgic for pigtails and mini knapsacks.

All About The Abs

In yet another trend that Queen Britney brought forth, the noughties were all about bare midriffs. However, a proper noughties girl didn't just eat right and jog to get a flat stomach. Instead, pop stars all had extremely toned abs, and the trend required women to do endless situps in order to achieve that pop diva stomach.

Pop Punk

These days, if you want to be a rebel, the trend is to head over to Urban Outfitters and find a hipster ensemble. In the noughties, however, high school rebels showed their middle finger to the world by rocking pop punk looks. These bubblegum punk ensembles were inspired by the pseudo-punk queens of the noughties, Avril Lavigne and Kelly Osbourne.

The noughties were a time of playful change in the world of fashion, with teenage style definitely dominating the trends. We can't wait to look back on the decade that has yet to be named - 2010 to 2019 - once we arrive in the '20s.
