For some unknown reason, things were layered in the 2000s. Why did everyone decide to wear more than one tee, tank top and more? Beats me. But, I certainly know that I fell victim to this trend back in the day, and you know you did, too! See 15 celebrities who layered clothing in the '00s for no real reason at all. Even these people weren't exempt from the clothing-stacking frenzy.
Back in the early '00s, if your top or dress had spaghetti straps, you better believe you had a t-shirt on underneath it. That was just the thing to do at the time, and believe it or not, this trend is coming back in style. Both Kendall and Kylie Jenner have layered thin straps with basic tees, and if they aren't indicators of what's "in," then I don't know who would be.
Whether folks were stacking multiple tank tops, layering a vest with a t-shirt or throwing a cropped cardigan on over anything and everything, this decade was all about wearing multiple tops at once. For better or worse, here are 15 celebs who fell victim to one of the most popular fashion trends of the time. Prepare yourself for a major flashback with these fashions because we’ve all been here before.
