You Probably Tried These Trends If You Attended Secondary School 10+ Years Ago

June 8, 2020

A few hundred years ago, before we all became part of the downright digusting ghetto, that is the adult hood…

… We were all happy-go-lucky children. Our biggest worries learning about the different layers of the ear and trying not to mess up quadratic equations. Those were some good ass times.

Those were also the times we attempted to kickstart our little fashion careers. We put together a list of some of the most notable fashion trends Nigerian secondary school students from 10+ rocked the hell out of and littered the streets of Hi5, Facebook and Bebo with.

Sagging

Were you cool if the world wasn’t one mischievous classmate pulling down your pants, away from meeting your ass crack?

Lip gloss

If your wet lips couldn’t double as cooking oil for food and but practicals, were you even popping?

Plaster on the face

Triple OGs knew what this was about.

Those big face customized belts

Nothing says cool, like your government name sitting pretty on your waist line.

Bedazzled phones

Phew, those flip phones shined their asses off mid 2000s

Handbags for school bags

If this didn’t happen in your set, we will now be separating the Gen Z-ers from the millenials.

All back with zigzag

Alicia Keys, you do not know how you revolutionised aall-back in Nigerian schools girl.

Customised shirts

These were everywhere!

Belt chains on regular uniform trousers

This was for baddies only!
