When I was younger, I idolized the girls on The O.C. Maybe I shouldn't have, considering some of the questionable story lines, but who didn't love Marissa Cooper and Summer Roberts? Like most teens, I was also obsessed with the style from The O.C. and it turns out, a lot of what they wore in The O.C. is stylish again in 2017. Who would've guessed?
Part of the reason the style from The O.C. resonates today is because the early 2000s made a quick comeback in the fashion cycle. I feel like in the past, trends took decades to resurface, but with modern technology, they're coming back quicker than ever. It's a weird feeling being 24 and having lived through the nineties and early 2000s trends twice.
In case you don't remember (or you didn't watch the show, in which case please add it to your "to binge" list) The O.C. was filled with miniskirts, crop tops, and even bucket hats, which just so happen to be all the rage in 2017. In fact, I bet the odds are good that you own at least five of the items on this list. I personally own a few.
Here are 19 outfits from The O.C. that are still trendy today.
1. Marissa's Lace-Up Crop Top
She was always a trendsetter.
2. Julie Cooper's Off-The-Shoulder Top
Julie Cooper was one stylish mom.

I'm pretty sure you can buy this exact bikini in 2017.
4. Marissa's Jean Jacket
Can't go wrong with a classic.
5. Marissa's Mini Skirt
This might actually be in my closet.
6. Summer's Peasant Crop Top
I'm pretty sure I saw someone wearing this exact shirt at Coachella.
7. Marissa's Two-Piece Set

8. Summer's Lace Top & Skirt Combo
Their style really peaked in season three.
