Britney Spears has given us gems such as "Oops I Did It Again" and "Lucky," the song that was responsible for a lot of scream-singing in my childhood bedroom. And let us not forget her historic (to me) Hollywood movie, Crossroads. I mean, we have Britney to thank for a lot of amazing stuff. But with all of her artistry, sometimes her iconique fashion moments aren't the hottest topic of discussion when bringing up Brit. That might need to change. Britney has given us outfits of glamour and some more casual, chic looks. Her range is impeccable. Yes, I'm referring to her vocals, but ALSO the outfits. For someone who’s been in the spotlight as long as Britney Spears has, there’s bound to be a LOT of nostalgia-inducing ensembles. Ahead, a look back at Brit’s most iconic outfits of all time. And, yes, Justin Timberlake does make some minor appearances. You're welcome.
Immediately Googles "white pants with built-in knee pads." Sorry not sorry, I'm obsessed.
Brit is glowing! Maybe it's the bright bodycon dress or her radiant smile. Whatever it is, she's rockin' the look.
This photo was snapped at a Crossroads press event and...you can tell. The low-rise denim with the sheer wrap on top is a) gorgeous and b) a sign of the times.
"That's why her hair's so big. It's full of secrets."
Just sink into this outfit and let it take you back. The french manicure, the huge boho bag, and the oversized round sunglasses create the ultimate early-2000's vibe.
Photos of brunette Britney are few and far between, but j'adore this one of her with a stunning dark and sparkly gown to match her equally dark do.
Okaaaaay Ms. Britney showing us up with some white party realness. And that lil' bob?! Trés cute.
There's a lot of skin happening here and I...don't hate it.
I'll give it to her, Brit sure knows how to slay the accessories game. Matching her hat, sunglasses, jacket, and over-the-knee boots, she's bringing some chic AF vibes to her wardrobe.
A sheer slip dress? Check. A bejeweled headband? Check. Extra-strappy heels? Check.
Bucket hat Britney was peak Britney, IMO.
Here, Brit poses in a closet (casual) in a striped tank and baggy jeans. Looks like she has no shortage of sneakers, though!
Here’s Britney at the very first Teen Choice Awards. And there are big sequin paillettes on her pants, which take her 'fit to a whole new level.
There is just so much going on here, but perhaps best of all is the frosted eyeshadow? Okay, or the marabou-feather hemline on Brit’s silk pants. I just can’t decide!
More dramatic eyeshadow circa the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards. Also, there are more marabou feathers on the sleeves of this epic see-through top.
TBQH, it’s like Britney and Melissa Joan Hart (remember, Brit and Melissa both starred in the “(You Drive Me) Crazy” music video alongside Adrian Grenier) had a competition to see who could look more ’90s. They both win!
Belly chains and skirts over pants! You love to see it.
Surprisingly, her square-toe aqua shoes are VERY much in right now. Who would have guessed the trend would make a comeback?
Just a cute photo of Brit in a crop top and platforms in front of the Eiffel Tower. So fashun.
I have never seen so much going on with an outfit, but wow, do I love it. Britney’s commitment to statement headwear is impressive, y’all.
This is iconic and not just because of the hat. It’s Britney at the 2000 Billboard Music Awards, and never has anyone ever dressed better for the red carpet.
Here, Britney performs in a lace-up crop top and patent-leather pants with a buckle belt at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.
Behold: Britney Spears at the 2001 MTV Video Music Awards. The look of the century!
Look, she’s even serving hats by osmosis! Any excuse for a good J.Lo photo; this is from the 2001 MTV Video Music Awards, but it could just as easily be from last year's.
And when she’s not wearing hats, she’s rocking bandannas, like this yellow one tied around her short hair, with an “I Love Punk” shirt, distressed jeans, and colored sunglasses.
Brit picked up a Teen Choice Award in a fringed pink mini and strappy heels. Sidenote: I wonder where people actually store these surfboards?!
This chunky knit turtleneck was a major menswear moment, and Britney’s choker is cute too.
Remember when we all wore shirts like this? Although no one can wear a crop top that says “Control Freak” quite like the pop star can, TBH.
Justin and Britney are back again, this time in contrasting outfits. Brit went with a classic zip-up dress with stars and metallic details, while JT looked like he just auditioned for The Matrix. What a time.
