Olivia Rodrigo just nailed the lingerie-as-outerwear trend, just like Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa and Rihanna. On Friday, August 19, the singer was spotted in New York City, emerging from a Chappell Roan concert at the Bowery Ballroom in a sultry LBD at the Mirror Palace.
The silk mini-dress has a balconette, a lace-edged bust and adopts a slight trapeze shape. She gave the bare-legged design a dark college edge, pairing it with white socks and black tassel loafers. The style choice downplayed the overall formality of the look, catering to her signature effortless and edgy vibe. The 19-year-old forgoes a necklace or earrings, but accessorizes with a few silver rings. Her wavy brown hair, red manicure and pink lip were the finishing touch.
Rodrigo’s outfit shows how to bring summer pieces into cooler seasons by swapping open-toed shoes for loafers and socks. It’s a transitional hack that works not only with shirts and jeans, but also with miniskirts and briefs. Recently, model Hailey Bieber used the move while on a world tour with her hubby, showing an LBD moment surprisingly similar to Rodrigo’s.
Rodrigo’s New York outing comes after she wore another black number on the red carpet at the 2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards in June. She dazzled in a vintage black corseted dress by Jean Paul Gaultier, designed with a criss-cross halter top, a satin panel along the zippered bodice and an ankle-grazing hem. Whether she’s appearing at a high-profile event or attending a low-key concert, the star always makes sure to stick to her original style.
