You know how everyone always goes on about the way pre-teens dress nowadays? Well, ive come to the conclusion that I wasnt any better. Then the more I thought about the cool stuff I had/wore the more it made me smile.

So I made this thread.

Post awesome shit you used to wear when you were 10-11-12, and probably the years. Also, it will be cool to see how the things differ between states and areas and shit.



So, here goes mine.

Years 1998-2000ish, Outer East of Melbourne pre teen fashion (disclaimer, I dont know how much this will effect it, but I grew up in a community housing area where there were a lot of brothels and the madames used to buy the kids shit because they liked us, so I wore a lot of make up from a young age just because thats what everyone else was doing, so yeah)


Everyone had a pair of these




Runners were never white, I had a red pair and a purple pair


The ones with beads used to leave really bad indents








I had so many of these tops, I used to have a year-long tan line around my belly


We used to make each other belly chains




I wasted so many money on these, you could only wear them once


Not the tongue ring, lol






Only over one eye at a time though






To colour in your hair when your Mum wouldnt buy you fudge, black, purple and blue only worked on my hair, damn dark hair, we did Eileen's green and pink once in the school toilets and it worked really well and lasted for a month. Then we did Natalie's black and her Mum grounded her.
















The only shoes to wear if youre wearing a miniskirt


This was my staple saturday outfit when I was 10, one of these skirts with my black crop top tshirt, blundstones, about a dozen belly chains, purple hair, blue eyeliner, green lipstick and a shitload of jewellery


I had a silver one and a green one






Everyone share what they used to wear.

To add, I also had a shitload of these. The only stealing I ever did (and no, im not proud of this) was stealing the examples of fake fudge hair from priceline, then id glue them onto a clip.

I had a few of the real ones from the $2 shop


But these were the ones we used to steal when we were kids

Yeah, my pre-teen fashion was nothing like that except the cargo pants, man I had a lot of cargo pants. And a pair I loved that had a zipper at the knee so you could turn them into shorts. Oh except hair pieces, especially coloured ones with beads and I had one with a bell I wore everywhere. And we had these scrunchies that were made to look like hair with bright coloured bits through it so you used to make a messy bun and it looked like you had pink streaks in your hair.

BUTTERFLY CLIPS.

And Skants? You know the ones that were like wide-legged pants but with a miniskirt over the top? I wasn't allowed one (retrospective thanks mum!) but EVERYONE had them.

My mum never bought me a pair either but I improvised, I had a purple sparkly skirt that I wore over flared jeans.

Excuse me but clearly you didn't have any taste if you didn't like skants.

They rocked 7yr old Kira's world.

This is interesting, because even though we lived in the same city, while Kira was a fashion-forward 9-year-old I was in overalls or whatever other ridiculous things my mum dressed me in when I was four. I'll post pictures of my pre-teen fashion when I get home, but it's very different to yours Kira.

Yeah, I think most of what I wore pre-teen wise was hand-me-downs from David to Mark to Cathy and then to me, so it was mostly boys clothes which were 7 years out of style and very worn.

Sorry Kira, we weren't as cool as you.

Aye, I guess theres a benefit to being the oldest. Rebecca was older than me, but she was a very overweight child, and I was very underweight, so nothing fit.

I had waaay too many clothes, all from the good oold RSPCA op shop.

I know i used to wear the shit out of my Hanson t-shirt, and i had a pair of 3/4 bike shorts coz Natalie Imbruglia had some and thats how my mother sold them to me.

I think what i wore revolved around my fave colour at the time usually.

Fair sure I just wore a tshirt and boring shorts or pants most of the time. I can't even remember wearing anything like that. I did have the tattoo neck chocked which I unfortunately wore during my goth phase in year 8. Also the hair bands, I had those.

I used to sit in the dirt and play with pokemon in year 5 and 6...

I grew up in a weird world by the sounds of it.

Speaking of pokemon cards, now this is possibly something else that was just a fad in my area, but we used to put our "best" card over the front of one of our hips so the picture was sticking up and we used to walk around like that.

Hang on, ill try to replicate it.

Haha, no, it wasn't cards, it was little pokemon figurines and we'd sit at the base of a free and make houses for them with bark and stuff.
