If you were one Friends fans, chances are you’ve wanted to be (and dress like) Rachel Green. Jennifer Aniston made a compelling case for capris, slip dresses and preppy miniskirts in the ’90s and ’00s, and she loved a pointy shoe that spoke volumes.
The last episode aired in 2004, but the legacy of Rachel’s outfits lives on. Just look at contemporary super Bella Hadid, who this week channeled everyone’s favorite waitress in a silk knee-length skirt, green crop top and a pair of controversial platform flip-flops. The retro vibe didn’t stop there: Bella added layered pendants with stone pendants.
Of course, Bella has been known to wear capri pants, too, and those flat flip-flops (they’re by the brand of the moment, Coperni), are quickly becoming a staple of her summer wardrobe. Teaming it with an A-line skirt and vest, Bella evoked Rachel in her hair extensions era.
Coperni wedges have become a cult item among It girls. Alexa Demie, Kendall Jenner, Dua Lipa and Nicola Peltz have all worn retro chunky heel flips. Whether you’re on board with the Noughties revival or not, trendy flip-flops are a solid summer buy. If you’re here for the throwback, embrace your inner Rachel and embrace the flat shapes. If you’re not a fan of intentionally ugly shoes, then The Row’s Ginza sandals are a Vogue favorite editor.
