The '90s have been back in a big way for a while now. From belt bags and corduroy to tiny sunglasses, we've seen just about every trend from way back recycled to today. But another era is making its way down to fashion week and its runways: The 2000s.

Nearly 20 years ago, we all dressed in flared everything. Even shorts weren't an exception. Though the 2000s trend has been brewing for quite a while, we never quite expected giant shorts to make such a sudden return. But as it seems, one should never say never. Here, we've picked out the best elephant shorts you can buy right now just in case you want to be ahead of the game.
