Is this a photo of Kim Kardashian West in 2006, on her way to meet up with Paris Hilton at a club called something raunchy like Mystique? Or was it taken present-day, as she hit up Fashion Week in New York City? That halter top makes it hard to tell—but, our sources can confirm that it is indeed the latter. Today, the reality star and beauty mogul was spotted on the streets reviving the throwback piece, following in the footsteps of Bella Hadid, who stepped out in a halter of her own earlier this summer. Spotted on two of the globe's most documented style-setters? It’s safe to say the going-out trend is fast becoming a thing.
Kardashian West’s take on the halter top was firmly brought in 2019, of course; she tackled the item with signature monochromatic style, pairing it with black leather pants. But still, that shimmery scoop-neck halter looked like it was plucked right out of the early-aughts—something she, Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, and other Hollywood party girls would wear as they stormed around bodyguard-flanked VIP rooms. To give it even more of a retro feel, she also sported her favorite shoes: flip-flop heels, a footwear style that comes straight from the ’90s, and has now been worn by Kardashian West all summer long. While West's ensemble is all about referencing the past, it, somehow, feels entirely new when combined together. So, if you still have some ’00s gems laying around in your wardrobe—it's time to start dusting them off.
