- In Avril Lavigne’s new music video, “Tear into Me,” the Canadian troublemaker pop artist swaggers down a rear entryway with Travis Barker while wearing a graffiti moto coat, a plaid miniskirt, and patent, over-the-knee boots.
- The outfit might have handily been from the 2000s when she administered the diagrams with melodies like “Sk8er Boi,” “Sweetheart,” and “No one’s home.”
The new tune isn’t a rebound, in essence; Lavigne delivered a collection, Head Above Water, in 2019 (her first starting around 2013’s Avril Lavigne). In any case, presently she’s back on the scene with the blazing new video, and she’s seeming as though she won’t ever leave. Very nearly twenty years after solidifying her unmistakable look, the star hasn’t abandoned her plaids, studs, and skulls. Her hair is even plunge coloured pink, similarly as it was the point at which she sang, “Damnation no doubt, I’m the motherfuckin’ princess!”
As a Canadian high schooler growing up and paying attention to Lavigne during the 2000s, I loved her style. In secondary school I attempted to style one of my father’s binds with a realistic tee and driver cap, similarly as in her “Sk8er Boi” video. At the point when she wore a red and dark striped top in her “He Wasn’t” video, I went to my nearby Gap and purchased a comparable T-shirt. I felt like a demigod in it. There’d consistently been a cool, casual edge to her outfits; they said, “I have a mentality.” And let it be known: When she wore those triple-paddled studded belts with her loose pants, you completely needed one as well.
Seeing Lavigne proceed to rep her design stylish in 2021 makes me a significantly greater fan. Most would agree the troublemaker pop look of the 2000s is not the hot look of the day (however Kourtney Kardashian, Barker’s life partner, is locally available with it), yet there’s something boss with regards to not thinking often about what’s in and what’s out. Design is recurrent—presenting and throwing out patterns quicker than you can even get legitimate wear out of them—and Lavigne is unmistakably putting forth the defence for observing your style uniform and staying with it. Simply think about every one of the pieces from the 2000s that she could reuse and rewear, and we’d most likely never at any point notice.
It’s not to say Lavigne’s style sense looks dated. Truth be told, I think her rocker-stylish style looks very present day. That is because she’s been gesturing to her unmistakable reasonableness in a new manner, similar to when she went to the VMAs in September wearing a pink plaid suit from Area—one of design’s buzziest new names—with a surprising bra by Cristahlea.
