Kristin Cavallari gave her twist on this season’s biggest styling trend as she soaked up the sunny Californian weather this week.

Taking to Instagram on Tuesday from Palm Springs, Calif., the media star posed by the palm trees in a peek-a-boo twist on a little black dress; the design featured a cutout panel across the torso with a halter neck and short-sleeve finish.

Amongst a revitalization of 1990s and early 2000s silhouettes, cutout tops, pants and dresses are making a triumphant return to the celebrity style scene this season. From Cult Gaia’s beloved twisted dress to Monôt’s peek-a-boo designs, you can find the skin-baring numbers on everyone from Zendaya to Dua Lipa and practically every member of the Kardashian-Jenner family.

Not to make her look too West Coast, Cavallari made sure to bring a little bit of her Nashville style in cowgirl boots. Western boots experienced a revival amongst celebrity style trends in 2018, continuing now into 2021 with their classic appeal and retro touch. From pointed-toe versions to square-toe silhouettes, twists on cowgirl boots could be found on the likes of Gigi Hadid, Gwen Stefani and Hailey Baldwin with brands including Givenchy, Off-White, Anny Nord and more featuring the designs on their runways.

As for Cavallari, earlier this week she gave fans a look at her glam taste in a daringly dressed-up moment. The “Laguna Beach” alumna posed for her millions of Instagram followers on Sunday in a plunging beige dress; the bold number included a low-cut neckline and a wrapped silhouette complete with a cut leg and long-sleeve fit.

The ensemble also featured jewelry from her own Uncommon James collections and trending heels.

When it comes to dressier footwear, though, the 34-year-old star usually prefers teetering stilettos in a mix of silhouettes and colors for her formal occasions — she told FN in 2017 it’s “always” heels over flats. Her collection, highlighting styles from likes of Gianvito Rossi, Prada and Mia Becar could be seen in her former TV series “Very Cavallari.” For street style looks, Cavallari switches it up with Converse, Dr. Martens, Vionic and Sorel’s more casual footwear.

Beyond both red carpet looks and her off-duty trends, the reality television personality also has longtime ties to the footwear and fashion industries. She became a brand ambassador for Chinese Laundry in 2012 and designed her own collection with the brand for several years. She also founded her own accessories brand Uncommon James in 2017, with jewelry retailing for under $75, and has her Little James Clothing line for children.
