Olivia Rodrigo‘s punk-rock era is alive and well. After grabbing dinner with Conan Gray at Carbone in New York City on May 1, the “Good 4 U” singer stepped out of the restaurant in a sheer, chain-mail minidress layered over a black bralette and matching briefs. Betraying no sense of cold in the see-through ensemble, Rodrigo strutted past the paparazzi with a smile in a pair of black velvet Mary Jane platforms. Rodrigo’s dress also featured two sky-high leg slits on either side of her thighs. She styled the outfit with a spiked choker necklace in silver, a matching bracelet, asymmetrical heart drop earrings, and multiple rings — a little sour, a little sweet, and undeniably edgy.
When it came to hair, she traded her standard lengthy waves for a straighter look that easily could’ve passed as a choppy lob from the front. From the back, the layers flowed all the way down to her lower back. In true riot-grrrl-inspired fashion, Rodrigo kept her eye makeup dark, rocking razor-sharp, double-winged eyeliner; silver eyeshadow; thick mascara; a neutral pink lip; and a black manicure.
Recently, the “Drivers License” singer hit the Grammys stage in a ’90s-inspired runway dress by Givenchy, complete with a white ruffled skirt and black fishnet tights. Earlier in the evening, she walked the red carpet in a black Vivienne Westwood dress with pink illusion beading that mirrored her silhouette. The same night, Rodrigo played up the sweet side of her “Sour” aesthetic in a custom Blumarine butterfly dress at her Grammys afterparty.
Every moment of Rodrigo’s “Sour” era has been worthy of a double take, and this chain-mail look is absolutely going in our 2022 style scrapbook. Take a look at Rodrigo’s sheer minidress from all angles here.
