Here Are 34 Pics Of The Most Iconic — And Sometimes Messy — Celeb Looks From 10 Years Ago, And I'm Curious If You Think They Still Hold Up

In a lot of ways, 2010s fashion was all about excess. And by excess I mean, you know how Coco Chanel said to take at least one thing off before you leave the house? Well, we didn't do that. If anything, we put on MORE things — bows, pearls, leather, spikes, jewels, and just...sooooo many bracelets.

The style drew inspiration from the accessory-heavy 1980s, also mirroring patterns and fabrics from the decade, like neon, animal print, and lace. But 2010s fashion definitely became its own very distinct thing:

So I thought it'd be fun to take a look back at this era-defining style and see what trends celebs were wearing exactly ten years ago in 2013:
