Halsey's Low-Rise Miniskirt Is a Modern Twist on the Y2K Trend
Halsey perfectly balanced their classic rock 'n' roll edge with a touch of timelessness in a recent outfit post shared on Instagram on Sept. 15. On her way to a Baby Keem concert, the "Gasoline" singer rocked a sleeveless, mock-neck crop top with a low-rise miniskirt and knee-high boots. To add a bit of texture to the look, the miniskirt featured pleats, while the knit crop top gathered at their shoulders. Halsey's suede boots were also secured with delicate ties at the top.
The slightly asymmetrical hem of her cropped tank hit right above her ribs, leaving plenty of room between her I.Am.Gia Circe Skirt's waistline to show off her abs and the four-leaf clover tattoo on her hip. The playful and revealing silhouette of the outfit gave so many more of Halsey's tattoos a moment to shine, too, making the look that much more punk-rock.
To accessorize the all-black look, Halsey opted for small, simple, chunky gold hoops. The gold played well with their strawberry-blond pixie cut, styled with wavy edges reminiscent of the 1920s. "I love fall concert season," the performer — who took to the audience instead of the stage for the night — mentioned in her Instagram caption.
With many Y2K trends — like bold color palettes, scrunchies, and logo patterns — trending right now, it's not surprising to see more low-rise skirts and pants in the wild. However, Halsey's monochromatic take with classic accessories was a very timeless play on the trend. Stars like Sydney Sweeney at the VMAs and Camila Mendes at Paris Fashion Week have been spotted in the viral miniskirt trend as well, making the style worthy of a spot in our wardrobes.
