Fitting for someone who’s about to receive an Icon Award tonight, Janet Jackson arrived at the red carpet for the 2018 Billboard Music Awards in an iconic piece of clothing. And what’s more is that it’s an accessible one. While dressed in a tulle ball gown skirt (like the music royalty she is), she paired her statement piece with a plain white T-shirt. (Yes, like the kind you might slip into for running errands, going to the gym, or heading to bed.)
Of course, Jackson’s particular choice felt unexpected considering her formal lower half. We loved how it was dressed up with plenty of gold jewelry and the way she accented it with a brown leather belt. Furthermore, if this outfit combination looks familiar, you may also recognize it from other style icons who’ve sported a similar look to other noteworthy events (see: Jenna Lyons at the Met Gala, Jennifer Lopez receiving her Hollywood Walk of Fame star, or that very famous Sex and the City opener).
Take a look at how some of our favorite style stars wear the affordable piece and then shop T-shirts below.
