The Real Housewives Reveal the Outfits They Regret the Most From High School

These ladies weren't always fashionistas.

By Laura Rosenfeld

The Real Housewives never leave home without wearing a fabulous outfit, but it took time for some of them to learn the ABCs of fashion. 

How to Watch

Watch RHOC on Bravo on Wednesdays at 8/7c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

That was certainly the case for the OG of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Vicki Gunvalson. "Looking back, most of my outfits were pretty bad," she recently told via email. "Lots of plaid bell bottom pants and my frizzy curly hair." 

The Real Housewives of New York City's Sonja Morgan also doesn't look back on all of her past sartorial choices lovingly. She told that she regretted wearing "long shorts, sleeveless sweatshirts, [and a] rag in the hair a la Grease," similar to the outfit she flaunts in the below photo.

Sonja may not be a fan of this look from high school, but we think she looks super cool.

Even Meghan King Edmonds, who attended a Catholic high school, regretted "every single outfit" she had to put together on her own outside of the classroom. "I should've stuck to my all-girl Catholic school uni of a plaid skirt and collared shirt," she told

Well, we think the Housewives look absolutely adorable during their cheerleading days.
