A Throwback to MTV Spring Break

There is no question that we all, at some point in our teens and early 20s, wished we were in Daytona Beach having the time of our lives with wet t-shirt contests, drinking games, hot boys, and even hotter bikinis for a week straight in the month of March. MTV’s Spring Break, while causing some of us major FOMO, was the pinnacle of late ‘90s to early 2000s looks, serving us all the tinted sunglasses, itty bitty bikinis, and denim cutoffs we could take for one week a year. Let’s jump back to the glorious days of MTV Spring Break!

No Doubt – “Just A Girl” (Spring Break, 03.14.1996)

I’ll take one pair of mermaid sequined pants and a tank embroidered with SALTY on it please and thank you. And do we even have to talk about how Gwen hasn’t aged at all since ‘96?

Itty bitty black bikini and a rhinestoned bellybutton, this is the moment she claimed her title as the Queen of MTV Spring Break… and we are here for it.
