Dawson Creek‘s most fashionable via Nylon
Circa 1998, I was super into the layered look. Like many other teens of the era, I was tying bib halter tops over T-shirts. If it got cold, that thin extra bit of fabric was sure to keep me cozy, right? That’s what I told myself, at least.
Back then, it was totally normal to wear a shirt upon a shirt so they were both visible, making it look like a bold fashion choice. I distinctly remember my favorite and most frequently worn top: a rainbow tie-dyed number that I liked to sport when I was feeling especially “cool.” Sometimes, I’d even pair it with a color-swirled matching skirt.
Thankfully, as the 2000s rolled around, the need to layer tanks fell by the wayside. The bib top, however, remained. Our favorite TV friends made us feel like we could successfully pull off the trend, too. If Joey Potter — awkward tomboy and resident love interest of Dawson and Pacey — could do it, so could we.
More than a decade later, this halter tank trend has evolved and is making a stylish comeback and we couldn’t be happier about it.
