16 Debs Styles We All Used to Swear By
Ahhh, the Debs.
The days of big hair, bigger dresses and stretch Hummers, all kitted out with Playboy bunny stickers. A true turning point for all young adults, and a masterclass in how to sneak in naggins.
Have a gander below, to see if you, too, were you a victim of Debs culture.
(Hint: the answer is yes. Yes you were.)
So. Many. Shawls.
Or stoles, if you're fancy.
Because why would you stick to modern styles when you can go medieval on the world and not breathe for up to eight hours?

3. Kitten heels
A bad time for feet everywhere.
4. Debs hair
Going into your local hairdressers and telling them you were going to your debs meant one thing and one thing only: you were going to leave crying.
Yep, those teeny tiny cardigans that looked like half a jumper and made everyone question their existence.
A good time to have shoulders.
Perfect for the modern-day baby bride.
7. Patchy, patchy tan
Back in the day, before fake tan tutorials and spray tans were invented, young debutantes tried their hands at applying the dark liquid mess to their pale skin, using the back of a sock.
This ended poorly.
8. Matching ties to dresses
Because, was there really any other way?
9. Communion-esque bags
Drawstring or no.
10. Guys used up a bottle of gel every two hours
Or even worse, wax.
11. French manicured nails
Be there and be square!
12. Hair jewels
Because there's no such thing as too much diamanté.
13. Diamond chokers as big as your neck could carry
Go hard or go home.
Over your bruised neck.
14. The Holy Bible
Let us go now in peace, and Sally Hansen our legs accordingly.
Because who doesn't want to look like they're dusting for prints?
16. And finally: shiny shiny satin
In all the colours of the rainbow.
