21 essential fashion items for the 00s wannabe skater girl

Can I make it any more obvious?


Some day in the early noughties, teenage girls everywhere looked down at the outfits our mothers had bought us from BHS and realised, this totally isn't me.

Totally independent of pop culture and all outside influences - well, besides Avril Lavigne and Green Day - we needed a style that would express the angst deep within our hearts.

Because nothing said "I hate being friends with girls - boys are so much less bitchy" like wearing a tie we got from Claire's Accessories, right?
