At some point in our lives, we all make huge fashion mistakes. Some of us made them in middle school and some of us are still making them in high school. We used to think things were absolutely adorable at the time, then we look back and think “who let me leave the house like that?!” Our favorite celebrities, that we used to idolize, led us into making horrible fashion mistakes. Senior, Mollie Johnson says “I wish I could go back in time and change some of the awful outfits I was wearing. I thought I looked amazing walking out of the house and now i’m wondering what I was thinking.”
Back when uggs and a jean skirt was a go to outfit, some of our favorite celebrities in 2003 rocked this outfit. Ashley Tisdale and Britney Spears happily lead us all into these fashion mistakes. Ashley Tisdale admits in an interview that she did not make the best fashion choices at the time. Senior, Julia DiFabrizio admits to her illegal outfits saying “I thought I was super fashionable with my jeans and mini skirt now I laugh that I actually went out in public wearing that.” Most of us can agree that we felt like we could walk the runway in this getup, and now we question ourselves.
Senior, Gillian Dunne, tells that she followed the hair feather trend in 7th grade saying “I absolutely loved my pink hair feather. It was so stylish and matched with everything. I wish they were still in style so I could wear mine.” Hilary Duff, Miley Cyrus, and Kesha introduced the multi colored fair feathers to their fans across the world. Their fans followed them into making the same fashion mistakes.
Sparkly dresses are a major Academy mistake. This trend is not as inspired by celebrities, but most Academy girls tend to fashion these styles. Each year freshmen bling out wearing bedazzled dresses to homecoming and formal. Freshman, Lilly Martinez says “I noticed this is a trend among freshmen, but I did not follow it. I remember seeing pictures of past freshmen wearing these sparkly dresses. ” Although these were top picks at the time, we have all learned from our fashion mistakes and will never make them again.
