As social networks become an increasingly dominant force in modern life, it becomes increasingly difficult to remember what life was like before the digital revolution.

But it was only a decade ago that teenagers spent their afternoons asking for music videos on TRL and Video Hits, dancing around the room to Whenever Wherever & # 39; or & # 39; m A Slave 4 U & # 39; and waiting for a text on your Nokia 3310.

Recalling an era before filters and fillers, avocado on toast and sliding in DM, FEMAIL enjoyed a flashback in the memory lane to the days of low-rise jeans, listening to Limewire while talking on MSN and calling all "search".

Clothing and accessories

Low-waisted jeans (or rather, all low-rise) were a trend that swept the world throughout the Noughties, which they all wore, from young Hilary Duff to Christina Milian and Rihanna during their Pon De Replay phase .

The brightly colored blouses, tube tops and Juicy Couture tracksuits were the epitome of chic, especially when swaying with a Dutch Von trucker hat, platform slip-ons and a navel ring encrusted with diamonds.

The low-rise jeans were a trend that traveled the world along the Noughties, loved by celebrities such as Christina Aguilera.

Rihanna also shook the low-cut trend and often combined the backgrounds with a daring crop top

The toes remained comfortable with tan Ugg boots, while the legs had the opportunity to breathe microscopic denim miniskirts, and the volume was a dirty word because the hair had to be poker.

No outfit was complete without a little Hollister or Abercrombie shirt, and for the holidays, you could stick some front twists on your hair to the Sabrina the Teenage Witch.

If you were lucky, your 21st birthday gift was a choice between a logo bag or the latest It-Girl accessory from the 00: a charming bracelet from Tiffany & Co.

Entertainment

In the early days of the Noughties before the uniform ringtone of Apple's iPhone became the norm, teenagers spent anguished days for a song suitable to represent their personality.

Phones around the world hummed with the opening notes of R. Kelly's Remix to Ignition, the hypnotic riff of Hey Ya and the violent beat of Beyoncé Crazy in Love.

The parents shuddered at the fact that they could recite Shaggy's "It Was not Me" by heart because he was never off the air, and they recoiled in horror at seeing their impressionable offspring wriggle and writhe with "Dirrty" Xtina, the sinuous hips of Shakira who never lies and the catchy rhythms of Nelly and * NSYNC.

Lady Marmalade was the 2001 Halloween costume choice, while two years later all the respected girls wore military pants and flip flops (because Regina George wore them, of course).

Guy Sebastian won Australian Idol, disconsolate teens regretted their luck on the soundtrack of Avril Lavigne's Complicated and the world wondered if Beyonce and Jay Z were really an object before they officially announced their relationship.

Hey, from Outkast, it was the soundtrack of the decade.

Hobbies

Before the smart phones were even a chimera, children fought in the Arcade Dance Pots and played Snake on the Nokia 3310 with a different cover for each day of the week.

The boys and girls flirted with MSN Messenger as they ordered their "Best Friends" on Bebo and MySpace with Limewire playing Get Low on Lil & # 39; Jon and Eastside Boys in the background.

When you got home after school, you relaxed with an Easy Mac and Cheese ready pot and waited for your favorite song on MTV or watched your favorite Hollywood stars get the Punk & d; from Ashton Kutcher.

The girls leafed through Dolly magazine to discover "the things your sex education teacher is not telling you" and experimented with body art by sticking bright transfer tattoos on top of each other's arms.

We were all hooked on Mean Girls, Laguna Beach and The O.C., and the debate was fierce when it came to being Team Marissa or Team Summer.

Iconic relationships

At a time when Kevin Federline was still a humble backup dancer, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake were the unofficial champions of the international "two goals".

On their heels were Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey with their reality series Newlyweds on MTV.

The unfortunate couple announced the beginning of a new entertainment genre after making the knot in 2002 and broke hearts around the world when they divorced in 2006, but not before Jessica did the unforgettable pop culture question, & # 39: Is this chicken me? Eating or is it fish? & # 39;

The Osbournes were the televisions of the most famous years of the family before the Kardashians were a blip on the radar, and everyone wanted to be best friends with Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie (before they were friends, of course).

Britney and Madonna may have shared the most scandalous kiss of 2003 at the MTV Video Music Awards, but nothing can beat the arrival of Jennifer Lopez at the 2000 Grammy in a dress of Versace bathed in naval.

So iconic was the set of J-Lo, which created the Google Image Search demand.
