Juicy Couture announced last week the closure of all U.S. locations by the end of June. (Is anyone else’s teenage self shedding a small tear?) The brand is most popularly known for the bedazzled terry-cloth tracksuits which launched to superstardom in the early aughts thanks to celebs like Paris Hilton, Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian. It seems like it was only yesterday that we were watching The Simple Life and secretly wanting our own pair of sweatpants with a rhinestone-encrusted message across the butt (to wear with our UGG boots, of course).
While having nostalgic flashbacks to our middle-school days, we turned to Twitter to see what others were saying about the end of the Juicy era. Check out a roundup of our favorite reaction Tweets below, and then tell us how you’re feeling about the news in the comments.
