20 *NSYNC Outfits From Your Childhood

by Marc Cuenco

Today should be declared a national holiday because it's *NSYNC's 20th anniversary and it's about time that we celebrate one of the biggest boy bands in music history. In honor of the day that Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone, and Lance Bass formed, let's take a look at some of *NSYNC's most memorable fashion from the last 20 years. There are enough bedazzled jean jackets, rhinestone bandanas, and multi-colored leather pants to make you feel nostalgic for early 2000s fashion trends that will make you want to dust off those No Strings Attached and Celebrity CDs, and throw one hell of an *NSYNC party this weekend.

"Twenty years ago today... WOW! Can you believe it?" the group posted on Twitter. "Thank you for all the wonderful posts today. We love you all, our fans are the greatest." The group briefly reunited at the 2013 MTV VMAs during Timberlake's Video Vanguard Award performance, but the world is still waiting for an *NSYNC reunion album or tour.

Even though the quintet released perfect bubblegum pop music and had awesome choreography in their music videos, the guys also delivered with their fashion. *NSYNC always looked coordinated during their performances, music videos, and red carpet appearances, but each outfit still showed each member's personality.

"We’re all brothers and we will be brothers the rest of our lives," Bass told Entertainment Weekly . "It’s so funny to see everyone grown up now... It’s so crazy cause I still look at them as teenagers. We still have not grown up." To celebrate *NSYNC's 20th anniversary, here are two decades worth of amazing outfits from the band:
