Do you remember the 2000s, when we were all going out in jeans and fancy tops? Back then, a fancy blouse—perhaps covered in sequins, or finished with a metallic sheen—was just as popular an option as a classic LBD. Stars like Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, and Beyoncé even deemed them red carpet-worthy.
If you think that was just a Y2K thing, though, think again—they’re having a major comeback again, as seen on the recent runways at Paco Rabanne, Bottega Veneta, and Coperni. Last night, model Kendall Jenner revived the look for dinner in Santa Monica, California with her boyfriend Devin Booker. But compared to the early-aughts versions, Jenner’s top is more sophisticated and discreet.
Think of it as a grown-up going-out top: Jenner stepped out in a fitted camisole, complete with brown floral embroidery and leather paneling. On its own, the striking piece feels dressy enough for a chic dinner or gala, but how the model styled it helped move it into party territory. She paired it with sleek black leather pants, pointed pumps, and an itty-bitty shoulder bag. The model proved that the newest iteration on the trend can be dressed up or down, depending on your mood. It feels effortless, and dare I say surprisingly modern!
