Back in the aughts, everyone's closets were filled with velour tracksuits, low-waisted bottoms, and platform slippers. Two decades later, it seems like style cues from that era are going through a renaissance.
The latest piece of clothing to flutter its way back to our wardrobes? The butterfly top. The slinky, oftentimes embellished piece first had everyone smitten when it was strapped around the bod of one Mariah Carey. Crafted by French designer Emanuel Ungaro, the popstar wore the top to the VH1 Divas Live concert in 2000, teamed with low-waisted jeans and her version of Rachel Green's signature haircut. Since then, stylistas have been copping the flamboyant piece for themselves, wearing it everywhere from the streets to the stage.
There's no denying just how enviable the charming litte garment is. To further inspire you to get a butterfly bodice for yourself, listed down below are a couple of celebs who've been giving them a 2020s remix.
LOOK: 4 Celebs in Y2K-Inspired Butterfly Tops
1. Anne Curtis
In a series of promos for her recently concluded comeback concert, Anne Curtis was fully embodying her pop star persona. One set of photos saw her in a sparkling pink and purple butterfly top from Area, coupled with sleek leather trousers and black heels. She looked like she was ready to storm the stage!
2. Dua Lipa
One star who's been leading the pact in bringing back butterfly tops is Dua Lipa. The musician was first spotted fronting the motif in an iridescent Versace gown during the 2021 Grammy Awards.
Recently, she was seen rocking the same Area piece Anne has, only in a different colorway! It totally added some sass and class to her simple pair of jeans.
And speaking of jeans, Dua also has the noughties-inspired piece in denim, which, naturally, pairs well with even more denim. We also love how she continued the butterfly theme with her chunky silver belt.
3. Andrea Brillantes
Andrea Brillantes celebrated her birthday this year in a custom-made sequined butterfly top by Michael Leyva. It was a great choice for dancing the night away, and there was no contest about who was the star of the night.
4. Olivia Rodrigo
Gen Z musician and global darling Olivia Rodrigo was also seen donning a butterfly top in an Instagram post. Her piece's aquamarine hues prove that this cut would suit any color scheme your heart fancies.
