When it comes to finding the worst outfits ever worn by the 90s all-girl pop band Spice Girls, you’re spoiled for choice. But hindsight is 20/20, and the looks that we think of as outdated and awful now were actually quite a hit at the time. Let’s face it, even if you profess to hate them, you secretly love them, especially when it comes to their over-the-top performances and wacky outfit combinations.
We’re still trying to forget – and forgive – those matching pinstriped blazers, printed dresses (accidentally?) worn backwards, and see-through leotards in every color, but before we had a chance to do that, news broke of an impending reunion. You’ll soon be treated to a Spice Girls overload as the band has announced that they will reunite under the new moniker “Gem” in order to celebrate their 20th anniversary. Scary Spice (Melanie Brown), Baby Spice (Emma Bunton), and Ginger Spice (Geri Horner) announced the band’s reunion and name change via a video on their newly launched website and hinted at an impending tour. Unfortunately, Posh Spice (Victoria Beckham) and Sporty Spice (Melanie Chisholm) were conspicuously absent from the video.
Browse through the gallery for a nostalgic look back at what we think are the most cringeworthy outfits ever worn by the Spice Girls. You’re welcome.
