Who What Wear is turning 10 this year! To celebrate our #WWW10 milestone, we’re bringing back WWW TV, with new style videos just for you.
Over the past decade, we’ve seen plenty of trends come and go (and then come again). Fashion is a cyclical beast, and what’s in one season can be out the next. So, reflecting on the past decade, you can say that we’ve come a long way. The jeans, heels, and even accessories we were wearing way back when are not the same as those we’ve worn today. Still, there’s something so satisfying about waxing nostalgic for those “remember when” fashion moments.
To prove how far we’ve come over the past 10 years, we’re taking a look back at our wardrobe must-haves back then and comparing them to today. We’ve rounded up photos of some of favorite trendsetters then and now and zooming in on how our shopping choices have changed. A decade is a long time, so prepare yourself for some major nostalgia with these throwbacks.
Ready to see how style has changed over the past 10 years? Read on for our guide to then and now It items, and to shop current must haves!
2006: The Babydoll Dress

Back in 2006, babydoll dresses, complete with embellished details were all the rage. Pair with chandelier earrings à la Rihanna, and it was the perfect outfit for a night on the town.
2016: The Slip Dress
WHO: Martha Hunt
Today, if we have a night out on the calendar, our go-to style is a sleek slip dress.
When it came to shopping denim, low-rise boot-cut jeans were the way to go in 2006. Bonus points if whiskering was involved.
2016: Kick-Flare Jeans

For a more modern take on denim, we love the flattering look of a high-waisted kick flare. It hits at the slimmest part of the ankles, and high rise means we’re always comfortable in what we’re wearing.
