Before your favorite Gossip Girl stars became onscreen style icons, they wore some questionable outfits. A look back at what Blake Lively and Leighton Meester wore in the early 2000s (tube tops and wide belts) confirms that they fell victims to cringe-worthy trends of that time. We don't completely blame them, however, because we too had a few of those pieces in our closets.
Though both stars have gone through dramatic style transformations since then, we'll have fun reminiscing about their old outfits. We do hope some of the trends ahead never make a comeback in 2017.
