The late Aaliyah wasn’t solely known for her down to earth lyrics and R&B hits. The singer was vouched for by her very own style. Aaliyah might be the original Tomboy before Teyana or Rihanna. From cropped tanks, baggy pants, completely see-through outfits, to reconstructing menswear, Aaliyah most likely did it first. Major brands like American Apparel, NastyGal, Sorella Boutique, and more all pull inspiration from Aaliyah and they may not even recognize it. View our favorite photos of Aaliyah’s tomboy style and her awards show style below.  life jersey-620x1004 03-620x921 Aaliyah-Style aaliyah aaliyah   bahamas-plane-crash-aaliyah Besides her Tomboy looks, Aaliyah was also a staple in Awards show fashion with sleek dresses similar to the Calvin Klein dresses Rihanna wears. Aaliyah wore see-through outfits to some of her events and we all know this is a major trend right now. She also wore skirt/bra and skirt/cropped top sets as well as chokers. Essentially, there’s nothing new under the sun and Aaliyah’s style has been resurrected more than ever in more recent years with women’s fashion & style becoming more tomboyish in addition to the embrace of nudity. In the photograph below, Aaliyah is wearing a see-through patterned black dress with her chest being the center of attention. aaliyah-2   Aaliyah-15-1024x1024 Aaliyah   aaliyah_haughton18 aaliyah-1 By Evangeline Elder & Ashante Clare (ayeetae)
