Let’s raise a glass to the 00s. It was a simpler time (because of Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie in The Simple Life, obvs), when Britney and JoJo reigned supreme, and jeans plus a chic top was the holy grail of style combos. Well, the days of getting dressed up are back again and naturally we’re all over retro glammed-up tops. Here are three for every budget…


Flashback to Paris Hilton on her 21st birthday in that silver cowl-neck dress. The very same turn-of-the-millennium style is having something of a renaissance and you can get a piece of it with this backless top in gunmetal metallic. For a 2017 twist, though, tone it down with a pair of raw-edge skater jeans and heeled mules. For that sweet-as price tag? It would be rude not to.

Remember how pretty much every red carpet in the 00s featured a bandeau? Yep, whether it was wrong or right, it happened and now it’s back for another round. This time, wear yours in all-over sequins (bonus points go to the cutesy side-tie waist), but add the cool factor by pairing it with heritage-check wide-leg trousers, an oversized blazer and sneakers.

Up for some midriff-baring antics but not about the halterneck life? This sequin top may require a deeper dig into the purse, but it brings the throwback glam in full effect. With chain lace-up detailing, tighten at the top and loosen near the hem for a more relaxed shape. Add simple black wide-leg trousers and patent ankle boots for a party-ready getup.
