We were also busy texting and running out of credit on our Nokia 3200. You know, the one with the flashing lights?

A large percentage of our time was also spent glued to our TV screens watching the The Simple Life, the pre-Kardashian era’s answer to reality TV.

The show featured original socialites, Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie, pretending to be friends and trying their hand at regular, everyday activities such as mucking out a cow shed in stilettos.

It was bizarre but pretty bloody hilarious. One thing we totally loved about the show was Paris’ sartorial flare.

Her outfits largely consisted of RaRa skirts, vest tops and over-sized sunglasses. But it was her off-duty Juicy Couture tracksuits that really stole the show.

She appeared to have one in every colour and we tried to our best to make our rip-off versions look just as glam.

Now it seems 2003 lives on forever in Paris’ world, as she recently revealed her love for all things velour and Juicy Couture outlet is alive and well.

“I love Juicy sweatsuits. I’ve never stopped wearing them,” she explained in an interview with Vogue.

Brb, we’re off to dig out our Uggs and fave velour trackies.

In other Paris Hilton news (Yes, there’s more), Kim Kardashian recently broke her social media silence to follow her frenemy Paris on Instagram. Maybe she was looking for some Juicy Couture fashion inspo?

Kim’s assistant also hinted at a return to social media as she shared the most glamorous throwback pictures we’ve ever seen on Kim’s website.

Kim Kardashian West, like the cheap Juicy Couture tracksuit, went viral in the aboriginal 2000s. But while Kim flourished into a absoluteness brilliant and artist brood the next decade, those coveted velour and terrycloth co-ords met their abortive demise. But on the awning of Wonderland’s October issue, Kim is bringing them aback to life.

For the magazines’s “autumn appearance issue”-shot by Petra Collins and styled by Zara Mirkin-Kardashian West wears ablaze amethyst velour separates, accessorized with angel wings (because why not). It’s a lot to yield in, but mostly it yields confusion, homesickness and atrocious questions of whether her sweatpants accept “Juicy” emblazoned on the butt.

If this heralds the acknowledgment of the Juicy tracksuit trend (brace yourselves), Kim is the absolute fit to lead. Let’s not forget, afore she was bathrobe in Balmain and Givenchy, she was a Juicy Couture outlet affiche adolescent (much like her BFF Paris Hilton).

If you’re not accessible for the acknowledgment of the tracksuit just yet, you could yield alleviation in Wonderland’s added October cover, in which Kim plays an anarchistic helpmate in a white crop top and hot pants, fishnets and thigh-high boots.

Cheap Juicy Couture Tracksuit Is Now a Relic in a Museum

— The early 2000s mainstay is reliving its glory days at the Victoria and Albert museum.

If you say you’ve never owned a Juicy Couture tracksuit, you’re almost certainly lying. Those high-end sweats with that memorable ‘J’ zipper pull was the unofficial uniform of the early aughts—bonus points if you wore them with Uggs. Styles came in terrycloth (for summer, obviously) and signature velour in every color of the rainbow, often with the word ‘Juicy’ embroidered or bedazzled in an arch across the butt (CLASSY). It was athleisure before athleisure was a thing, and before designers like Alexander Wang took the theme to more minimalist, luxe territory. And literally every female in America had at least one set in her closet, whether she was a Hollywood celeb or a middle school queen bee.

Since then, we’ve said goodbye to the regrettable, albeit fondly nostalgic trend. Juicy Couture outlet announced last year that it would be shuttering all U.S. stores. The tracksuits that once topped our holiday wish lists and symbolized our cool girl status now clutter the sale racks at Kohl’s, marked with those glaring red stickers that might as well read R.I.P. instead of $29.99. And if that weren’t enough to make it an official relic of the past, this certainly is.

The Victoria and Albert Museum in London announced a new exhibition that will launch in April 2016, titled, ‘Undressed: A Brief History of Underwear’. Alongside the antique corsets, 18th century bloomers, and (more enticingly) the sheer naked dress famously worn by Kate Moss in 1993, the exhibition will feature a 2004 version of the cheap Juicy Couture tracksuit in traditional bubblegum pink.

Our favorite thing to wear ten years ago is now a piece in a museum. We officially feel old.

A lot has been written recently about the return of the Juicy Couture tracksuit. All over the internet, people are claiming that the early 2000s celebrity wardrobe staple is primed for an epic comeback. Cosmopolitan.com decided to test this theory out by having seven editors wrap themselves in cheap Juicy Couture velour for the day and report back on their experiences. Here’s what happened:

1. Danielle, 23

“I lived in my Juicy tracksuit back in the day. I shared a closet with my sister when we were growing up, so together, we had one for every day of the week, and we would borrow and mix and match all the time. It’s been six years since I last wore one though. It felt so good to be reunited. It felt like coming home.

“I posted a pic on Instagram of me wearing the tracksuit, and everyone in the comments was like, ‘Is this back? OMG! Love! Obsessed!’ Everyone was excited! Then I got probably 10 texts from people wanting to know if they’re back in style and where to buy them because they loved their old Juicy tracksuits so much. It’s funny because I think everyone is afraid to love them openly. Everyone’s like, ‘Haha, yeah, that’s funny, but I don’t actually want to wear one’ — but they’re lying! They know in their hearts that nothing would make them happier. #TrackIsBack and it’s magic!”

2. Carina, 22

“I had a few Juicy sweatshirts in the mid-aughts, but never a full-on matching tracksuit. They were definitely a status symbol back then and my parents were not about to let me run around in a $200 tracksuit.

“I spent the whole day feeling like I should have been carrying a teacup chihuahua and a Frappuccino.”

3. Mylan, 27

“I never wore a Juicy tracksuit in high school. My mom always stressed the importance of looking ‘put-together’ so that was definitely not a thing she would have ever allowed.

“That said, OMG! It was literally the most comfortable thing I’ve ever put on. It was so soft!

“The only downside was that everyone was staring at me all day. Maybe it was because I looked liked the Pink Panther. If they do make a comeback, would they be considered office-appropriate? If so, I think I might invest in a black one.”

4. Caitlin, 25

“Before this, I had never worn a Juicy tracksuit. I felt really dressed down at work. It actually made me appreciate getting ready for work in the morning and how much more confident I feel when I’m more dressed up.

“I was also hyper-conscious of people staring at me. I don’t actually think anyone was judging me that hard, but for some reason, when I went out for lunch, I had this nagging feeling that strangers were talking about me behind my back like, ‘Will you look at that — 2002 is back.’

“I think I was probably making a bigger deal out of it than it needed to be. It’s just a fucking tracksuit. I hope it does come back. Especially if it means more iconic pop culture moments like Amy Poehler in Mean Girls.”

5. Maya, 22

“My sister and I were obsessed with these in middle school. I mean, who wasn’t? I remember begging my mom to take me to Nordstrom Rack one weekend to get a navy blue tracksuit with ‘JUICY’ in gold sparkly letters across the butt. I thought I was too cute wearing it the next day at school. My friends and I were convinced that our Juicy tracksuits brought all the boys to the yard.

“Velour tracksuits aren’t really my style anymore, but the material is still super comfortable, and it turned out to be a great conversation starter. Everyone I talked to just wanted to reminisce about the days when they wore them and how fun it was.”

6. Alie, 30

“In high school in the early 2000s, I basically wore one of two outfits: jeans with a tank top under a half-zipped Juicy zip-up, or Juicy sweats with a T-shirt. (You never wore the pieces together!) Discount stores like Loehmann’s made it easy to have a lot of pieces in a lot of colors, though my black velour pants were my favorite. I wore them so much that they were gray by the end of college and I had to buy a replacement pair, which I still wear. They are my house pants of choice, even over leggings. I love them. I have owned many pairs of sweatpants over the years, and they are by far the most comfortable ones ever.

“That said, when I put on the full tracksuit for this experiment and looked at myself in the mirror, I could see why my dad hated my high-school look. I looked like I was going out in my pajamas, and so un-put-together.

“Don’t get me wrong, I still love my own Juicy sweatpants. The only way you’ll get me to give those up is if you pry them from my cold, dead hands.”
