29 Ways The O.C. Shaped Our Teens
For many years, The O.C. was one of our favourite TV shows. The mix of rich kids, Californian lifestyle, and fashion was just unbeatable, no matter where in the world you lived. Every noughties teen fashion fan wanted to be Marissa or Summer. So we were actually a bit sad to hear Mischa Barton say in an interview last week that in hindsight, she would "probably not" have accepted the role. After all, only Coop could go through all that drama and still look drop-dead gorgeous. In August 2003, The O.C. aired for the first time, so for the 11th anniversary, we are looking back on the fashion moments from Marissa, Summer, and co. that influenced the clothes we wore. Scroll through and indulge in some bittersweet nostalgia (and see if you can spot stars like Olivia Wilde, Shailene Woodley, and Chris Pratt). California, here we come!
