Tell Us Now: What Was Your Most Ridiculous Fashion Choice?

Here at Cracked, we just want to know your juiciest secrets. That's why we asked Cracked readers on Facebook, “What was the most ridiculous fashion trend you participated in?” And you all delivered deliciously hilarious responses. Here are 15 of those…

TELL US NOW. WALLET CHAINS Scott E. says, Ridiculously long chain wallets and bucket hats. Together. With pants big enough to smuggle a shopping cart's worth of groceries in. I didn't do the JNCOs thing, but I definitely had a wallet chain about 5 feet long and a bucket hat. CRACKED.COM
TELL US NOW. IMPROMPTU PARACHUTE PANTS Celeste B. bravely shares, Parachute pants in junior high school. But the worst part was, I wanted the chain-style belt to go with it, but I couldn't find one at the mall, so I bought a DOG LEASH and wore that instead. CRACKED.COM
TELL US NOW. CURTAIN BANGS Joel S. shares, The mushroom head /penis cut that dominated middle schools across America from 93-95. Thanks a lot, Jonathan Taylor Thomas. CRACKED.COM
TELL US NOW. VELOUR TRACKSUITS Shane H. shares, I don't know if it was a trend per se but in 4th grade I wore a lot of velour tracksuits. I still don't know why. CRACKED.COM
TELL US NOW. FORMAL SWEATPANTS A.J.A. shares, In the seventh grade my teacher informed US that we were going to the opera so jeans and sneakers weren't acceptable. So I wore sweatpants with my boots. CRACKED.COM
TELL US NOW. TRENCH COAT GOTHIC Stephen S. tells US, In a ridiculous attempt at being non-conformist I decided to adopt 80s gothic fashion in the 2000s. Somehow the combination of a Hasselhoff mullet with a black trench-coat and sunglasses did not result in radical nonconformity but a guy who'd be fired from the X-Men for dressing badly. CRACKED.COM
TELL US NOW. SKORTS Kristen B. wore an extreme version of the fashion statement, I remember everything about that day. The day I put on my new pants with a skirt on top. I remember it was a foggy day and I felt soo cool in my new outfit Not knowing that this day, would be the lowest fashion moment in my life... CRACKED.COM
TELL US NOW. LIBERTY SPIKES Stewart M. tells US, In the mid-2000s, my friends and I were super into Mindless Self Indulgence, which meant we spiked our hair at every opportunity (regardless of length). In 2007 I went to prom wearing a tuxedo and sporting foot-long liberty spikes. CRACKED.COM
TELL US NOW. MOCK TURTLENECKS Mia M. admits, I gotta say the mock furtle neck fucked into pleat front khakis. Why a mock furtleneck and why pleats at the stomach? Not necessarily ridiculous but certainly unfortunate. Also the orange streaks from Sun-In. CRACKED.COM
TELL US NOW. BACKWARDS JEANS LaSherta G. tells US, Wore my jeans backwards like Kris Kross for about thirty minutes in junior high. CRACKED.COM
TELL US NOW. LEISURE SUIT John N. tell US, I'm kind of ashamed to admit it, but back in '75 I had a leisure suit. It was dark brown and polyester. I was just 18 at the time, with no taste. CRACKED.COM
TELL US NOW. FULL EMO KID April S. shares, I was emo. Yes! I admit it! Too much eyeliner, black lipstick, purposely ripped fishnet stockings, face piercings, one forelock of brightly colored hair artfully failing in front of my eyes (but mostly there to cover up my raging acne.) CRACKED.COM
TELL US NOW. JELLY SHOES Robyn K. tells US, They were uncomfortable, made your feet dirty, stinky, and sweaty! But they were the height of fashion (at that time). CRACKED.COM
TELL US NOW. BRA OVER T-SHIRT Jamie R. shares, I don't have a photo thankfully but for a hot minute I would wear a black lace bra on outside of my white wife beater tank top. I was 14. CRACKED.COM
TELL US NOW. BIG POCKETS Michael O. tells US about wearing pants that a whole skateboard could fit in the pockets. Man, those were crazy days. CRACKED.COM
