We all have a few fashion disaster from the past that we'd much rather pretend never happened. 

But some people have been brave enough to share the crimes against style from their younger days in a hilarious Reddit section appropriately named The Blunder Years. 

Now an Imgur user has collected a selection of the very best - or perhaps the worst - of the bunch, including curly mullet hairstyles, 12-year-olds with the style of 50-something real estate agents and a teen who took a mop to his high school prom. 

One man even shared the CV he'd creating featuring a moody boyband-style shot of himself with interests listed including taking pictures of himself and developing his appearance. 

The curls, the mullet and the snowflake jumper certainly make for a killer combination
