We often hear that fashion trends are based on the past… Historical movements or particular eras like the 70’s are constantly repeated time and time again on the runway. But when it comes to pop culture, celebrities are the one who usually set the tone on the do’s and don’ts: crop tops, chokers, baggy pants… the list goes on and we owe it all to Aaliyah!
Today, Aaliyah would have been 38 and this August will mark the 16th anniversary since her death! It’s already been that long…sixteen years have gone and flown by so quickly. That being said, we can’t help but wonder what the music industry would have been like if she was still alive. But what we do know is without her leaving a legacy and a mark in the fashion world, Beyonce and Rihanna would certainly not be as big as they are today!
Who can ever forget those dances moves, bandanas, sunglasses, and tomboy style!? Aaliyah was the cool chick we all wanted to be and frankly she was the definition of swag in the 90’s! From Zendaya to Britney Spears, Aaliyah still influences all type of artists today and remains an inspiration to all when it comes to style. She may be gone but that wont’ stop us from celebrating her best style throughout the years:
Let’s not forget that she had the most creative video sets, and the most interesting make-up always!
