StartTODAY contest: The most hilariously outdated items in your closet

You know those articles of clothing in the way back of your closet? The ones you haven't touched since high school? Don't get us wrong, we totally get it (and admittedly have some ridiculously outdated pieces, too). We're not judging.

It is partially a matter of preparation, since it's great to be ready if that hasn't-been-worn-in-decades shirt comes back in style.

But some of those retro choices? Let's just say they belong in the way back of our closets.

Style expert Jill Martin joined TODAY Wednesday to help one couple revamp its wardrobe and announce an exciting contest as part of the StartTODAY series. In hopes of winning one of each "Steals & Deals" items this week, TODAY fans shared the most hilariously outdated piece hiding in their closets.

And oh, did they deliver.
