All of us most likely went through a 'special' fashion phase in our young years. Apparently, there was one that made kids look at least 20 years older. The best part? We have photographs, so now we can have a good laugh about it. Go ahead and share those priceless moments when you looked like you were in your middle ages while being a child.

The haircut, the umbrella, the necklace, the robe, and even the pose are embarrassing. This one is the best!

It's actually not bad at all, but adults may mistake you for someone of legal age.

Actually, this was me. I assure you, I was 12; it was 1991. Unfortunately, I did not grow up to be nearly as attractive as advertised, but still managed to find a great husband and our kids are better looking than either of us.
