If you ask us, no one was a more iconic representation of early '00s fashion than Britney Spears. Longtime fans of the pop star will remember how classic the fashion was in 2002's Crossroads, and don't even get us started on her epic VMAs performance outfits through the years. There's no doubt that Spears's style will go down in fashion history books for the era, and she's certainly solidified her love for all things naughties fashion… even in 2018.
While out and about in Paris recently, Britney wore one of the most controversial denim trend of the early aughts: low-rise jeans. Not just any below-the-belly-button denim, either, but a pair of ultra-, ultra-low-rise jeans we honestly haven't seen in years. For a while now, high-rise styles have dominated the fashion scene, leaving anything lower than waist-pinching in the dust. Maybe the singer's onto something, though. After all, we have been seeing more and more '00s trends—logo bags, tiny-strap sandals—creeping back into style.
No matter how you feel about the denim trend, you have to hand it to Spears for refusing to relinquish her low-rise jeans just because they're not what everyone else is wearing at the moment. Below, see how she styled them with knee-high boots and a romantic off-the-shoulder top.
