15 Fashion Trends Parents Hate For Kids to Wear

Low Rise Jeans

Low Rise Jeans

It seems like every girl during the 2000s wanted nothing more than to show her inner "Genie in a Bottle" by wearing super low-rise jeans. The trend was usually accompanied by a cute new pair of underwear that definitely showed off too much. The trend made parents' blood boil and for good reason. It went too far and revealed too much skin. To make matters worse, the trend didn't seem like it was going away. It lasted for several years and got worse as girls began to pair it with halter tops, tube tops, or crop tops. Thankfully, it died away after a while and parents were able to breathe a little easier without having their child run around in low-rise jeans. Now, skinny jeans are popular, but at least they don't show off anyone's underwear. 

Crop Tops

Crop Tops

What did 2000s teens pair with their low-rise jeans? Crop tops of course! You couldn't wear this outfit to school, but that didn’t stop you from rocking it any other time you left the house, which prompted your parents to say, “Put some clothes on!”

Denim Mini Skirts

Denim Mini Skirts

Girls in the '90s and '00s loved to wear super-short, denim mini skirts. For school, they paired them with knee-length leggings to make them a tad more modest. That didn’t stop parents and school administrators from balking at this trend! 

Ripped Jeans

Ripped jeans have been the bane of parents' existence for decades. The famous lines, “Did you buy those like that?” and “You should get your money back, because they only sold you half a pair of jeans" will be forever stuck in our heads. 

Slip Dresses

Slip Dresses

Slip dresses are designed to look like slips, which are technically in the undergarment/lingerie category. Naturally, most parents didn’t want their teenagers walking around in lingerie, so it was a constant source of arguments in the '90s. This trend is resurfacing today, and it's sure to cause the same problems. 

Fishnet Tights

Fishnet Tights

In the '90s and 2000s, fishnet tights became a big trend with teen girls. Parents were vocally opposed to this trend, as they thought these tights made their daughters look just a little too mature for their age.

Leather Pants

Leather Pants

Kids in the '90s always got in trouble for wearing leather pants. Their parents were scarred because '70s and '80s rockers wore them on a regular basis. They assumed that if their kids were into these pants, they were surely involved with sex, drugs, and rock and roll.

Naval Jewelry

Girls who grew up in the 2000s were enamored by this sexy piercing that they could show off in their crop top/low rise jean outfits. Their parents were horrified by the idea that their daughters would pierce anything besides their ears! 

Velvet Tracksuits

Parents in the '90s and 2000s didn’t see anything inherently wrong with velvet tracksuits, but they did think they were ridiculous and something that should only be worn at home. The teenaged ladies disagreed.

Halter Tops

Halter Tops

Parents in the 2000s hated halter tops! In their minds, a halter top looked more like a piece of swimwear than a shirt. However, girls loved to wear these chest-baring tops because they were sexy and allowed for jewelry to be shown off. 

Anything Mesh

Anything Mesh

Mesh bodysuits, swimwear, and leggings are all the rage! Parents of today hate to see their kids wearing too much of this skin-baring trend, but teens love it because it's subtly sensual. 

Bikinis

Bikinis

Every girl from the '80s until now wants to wear a bikini to the pool or the beach. Some parents think this style is far too revealing for young girls because it resembles a set of undergarments. These parents must be grateful that one pieces are back in style! 

Chokers

Chokers

The '90s trend of chokers has made a comeback. They’re fun and flirty, but parents of both decades aren’t a fan of this trend. They think it’s silly and will commonly ask, “Is that even comfortable? It looks like it’s choking you!”

Pants With Writing on the Butt

Pants With Writing on the Butt

Ah, the infamous pants that read “Juicy” or “Hottie" on the butt. Looking back to the '90s, these pants were pretty tacky! We can definitely understand why our parents were appalled when they saw us wearing these suggestive bottoms.

Tube Tops

Tube Tops

Tube tops were a hit in the '90s and 2000s, much to the dismay of parents who didn’t want their daughters baring their chest and shoulders. Unfortunately for them, teen girls loved these figure-hugging, skin baring tops. They even threw cardigans over them so that they could be worn to school.
