Towards the end of the Nineties, say from 1997 onwards, every Friday and Saturday night getting-ready-to-go-out conversation would go something like this: “What are you going to wear? Jeans and a top, right?”, “Yeah, jeans and a top.” By Sarah Harris
As dictated by J-Lo, Destiny’s Child and the supermodels of the era, there wasn’t an alternative going-out uniform worth considering. A spangled cocktail dress? Forget it. A skirt situation? Nope. Le Smoking? Certainly not. For cocktails at the Met Bar – or any bar in the lobby of a Schrager hotel – it would be jeans and some kind of sensational top (ideally, one that glittered or was otherwise decorative, and exposed a sliver of taut midriff) that would get you past the velvet rope. That sartorial fail-safe is back with a vengeance this season as designers revive the look. At Saint Laurent, Anthony Vaccarello teamed faded denim with plush sweetheart-neckline tops in black velvet; at Alexander McQueen, Sarah Burton partnered opulent jacquard corsets with patchwork jeans; while Roberto Cavalli went all-out bohemian, pairing hipster styles with beaded jackets and skinny silk scarves.
The first bit of good news? This time around, it isn’t vital to expose your midriff (choose high-waisted jeans and a top that neatly tucks in). And the second? In essence, this is a look that requires little more from you than a rummage in the wardrobe.
