There are perfectly good celebrity style moments, and then there are the looks that really stick with you, the ones you try desperately to recreate at home. In 'Great Outfits in Fashion History,' Fashionista editors are revisiting their all-time favorite lewks.

The final season of "Younger" is just around the corner, and I'm celebrating the show's long-awaited return by bringing back a Hilary Duff look from when she was younger.

The "Lizzie years," as I like to call them, cover a sartorial period in the early 2000s, when Duff wore chokers galore and dressed like the middle school heroine I hoped to become, on and off the screen. Many of her "Lizzie McGuire"-era ensembles were made up of low-rise denim flares that don't deserve a spot in our closets today, but I found one outfit, to the 2001 Emmy Awards that may very well have been a look in Batsheva's Fall 2021 collection. It consisted of a rust-colored, crushed satin split-hem pant paired with a matching velvet bow one-shoulder top. Everything from its brown coloring to the fabric makes it feel like part of Batsheva Hay's unapologetically vintage-feminine aesthetic.

I'm just upset that the designer hasn't yet asked the actor to be a part of her cool kitchen cast — especially since, thanks to Architectural Digest, we know that Duff has an incredible kitchen. I hope she's featured next season. In the meantime, shop some crushed velvet and bow-bedecked pieces in the gallery below.
