Gigi Hadid Revives the ’00s Bra Strap Reveal

Today, en route to the Berluti show in Paris, Gigi Hadid stepped out wearing the classic supermodel’s secret weapon: a plain white tank. She wore the classic easy top with a pair of low-slung black pants with a white monogrammed Louis Vuitton patch attached to the belt loop, white sneakers, a gold chain necklace, and tiny square sunglasses. The most noteworthy addition, however, was a black bra with straps that saucily jut out, a styling move straight from the 2000s.

There has been a lot of strap revealing recently. This past week, Gigi’s sister Bella wore a fancy Versace thong on the Spring 2020 menswear runway with low-slung bedazzled pants. And while the thong is certainly having a flossy moment, the exposed bra strap seems like a more accessible alternative that still taps into that good ’ol noughties nostalgia. Avril Lavigne famously wore a white tank with black bra straps showing (and a necktie!) in the 2001 music video “Complicated.” Two years later, at the height of post-Y2K excess, Gwen Stefani sported a similar ensemble (plus a hot pink bra!) in the now-beloved karaoke anthem “Hollaback Girl.” The strap reveal still has some of that cheeky attitude, and when executed confidently, is a chic outfit-maker. Tip: Be deliberate with your bra choice and pick a visibly different color than the tank. This summer, don’t fear the strap—in fact, let it show.
