Miley Cyrus Is a Peak ’80s Rockstar in a Leather Top, American Flag Skirt & Star-Spangled Boots

Miley Cyrus looked straight out of the 1980s this weekend as she performed for the 4th of July in Las Vegas.

Taking the stage at the Ayu Day Club at Resorts World Las Vegas, the “Plastic Hearts” musician brought her signature edge in a twist on patriotic style. The rockstar-chic look included a cowl-neck leather shirt matched to an American flag mini skirt and the return of her wild mullet hairdo.

To complete the edgy look, Cyrus then slipped on star-coated boots with a leather finish and knee-high fit.

Knee-high and thigh-high boots are the must-have boot silhouettes this season. From leather twists on the trend to edgy lace-up styles, you can find the taller shoes on everyone from Ciara to Lily Collins and Gwen Stefani amongst other major names. In colder temperatures, the silhouettes offer coverage to counter skirts, dresses and shorts as well as provides an extra layer to any leggings or jeans look.

As for Cyrus herself, the singer is no stranger to a stir-causing style moment. While she is best known for her hit albums and box office films, the “LOL” star also dips her toes in the fashion and shoe space. She even made an appearance on the runway at the Marc Jacobs’ fall ’20 show and has also sat front row at shows for top labels such as Tom Ford and Saint Laurent. She also has worked with Converse on a series of pride-filled shoe collections.

The Converse collaborator has also been vegan for years, leading her to oftentimes embrace wardrobe pieces that are cruelty-free. In fact, at last year’s Met Gala, Cyrus teamed a Saint Laurent minidress with a custom vegan leather version of the brand’s Paige platform sandals. Her other go-to designers for fashion and apparel include any label that can give her look a standout edge — think Versace, Saint Laurent, Alexandre Vauthier and Azalea Wang amongst others.
