Hailey Bieber never misses when it comes to style, even when there's a controversial trend involved. On April 21, the Rhode Beauty founder shared her casual Thursday night outfit, centered around her low-rise cargo pants, on her Instagram Stories. She teamed the baggy trousers with a super-cropped graphic tee, topped with an oversized boxy blazer — her signature silhouette when it comes to outerwear. Accessorizing with chunky Yeezy trainers and hingeless sunglasses, Bieber showed off her effortlessly cool style, embracing the popular baddie aesthetic. On the jewelry front, she added Balenciaga logo earrings and layers of gold chain necklaces.

Bieber's utility pants are evidence that cargo pants can be a lot cuter than some of the designs from the early aughts. While some people have refused to hop on the low-rise trend, others, like Bieber, have embraced nostalgic pieces with open arms, giving the Y2K look a modern twist. Considering the model is at the forefront of every major 2000s trend — she just debuted a rhinestone lower-back tattoo a few weeks prior — it's no surprise she pulls off these pants with ease.

Just last week, Bieber enjoyed the first weekend of Coachella in similarly casual looks inspired by nostalgia. In a sea of loud Y2K styles and "Euphoria"-themed fashions, Bieber opted for a more pared-down outfit for day one, wearing low-slung baggy denim from Carhartt, a cropped tank, and an oversize leather jacket curated from Worn Vintage. On a different day, she wore snake-print textured flares from Luna Del Pinal and a ribbed crop top with a body chain. The street style star has also been sporting a variety of Y2K pieces on Justin Bieber's "Justice" tour, including low-waisted baggy trousers, micro miniskirts, and baby tees.
