Do you remember the joy you used to get out of back to school shopping in the days of your youth? Well, as nostalgia continues to reign supreme, it's actually pretty easy to relive those days — because there are actually tons of things for sale now that are just like your favorite mall purchases from the 2000s. Whether it means that particular '00s take on athleisure wear (hello, tracksuits), or that heavy reliance on all things sparkly (from glitter to rhinestones galore), it's a lot of fun to see the trends recycling themselves.
What were your favorite trends back in the day? Were you the type that tried (unsuccessfully) to convince you to buy you a rhinestone and glitter-laden Juicy hoodie for your birthday? Did you worship at the altar of Steve Madden? Slick on a coat of super glittery pink lip gloss every morning? At any rate, a fair number of those '00s trends are already back in earnest, a little over a decade after they made their first rounds.
So, are you ready to check out some surprisingly trendy 2017 versions of your favorite early 2000s mall buys? Read on to get your daily dose of nostalgic shopping.

Chokers: They made their way through the '90s and early '00s, and now it looks like they're here to stay.
It all takes you right back to the mall in the summer before 7th grade, doesn't it?
