When it comes to street style with a classy edge, Aaliyah more than fits the bill.
The R&B icon made it cool for girls to rock crop tops with baggy pants and the boxer elastic showing. Not forgetting the singer’s signature swoop.
The 22-year-old would then be the same girl looking elegant on the red carpet in a black gown and high heels.
The ‘One In A Million’ star who died in a 2001 plane crash is much missed, but to this day her style still resonates.
It is unlikely that you will find exactly the same outfits now, so if you want similar outfits for yourself, then you will need to make them yourself. We love her cream leather pants because they are on trend right now and can be made at home if you have leather and a home leather sewing machine.
