However you feel about the resurgence of Y2K-inspired style, you have to admit Rachael Kirkconnell just made a chic argument for bringing it back. 

The former "Bachelor" contestant stepped out in New York City while visiting boyfriend Matt James in a gold bikini top and cropped jeans that felt nostalgic for the 2000s.

Complete with a glitter crop top, the reality star's ab-baring attire was a near-replica of the outfit actress Tara Reid wore to the 2000 premiere of "Black and White" with then-boyfriend Carson Daly.

Posing for a sun-filled Instagram photo, the 24-year-old styled her WeWoreWhat gold cowl neck bikini top with a surprisingly affordable pair of $82 high-waisted jeans from the Urban Outfitters-exclusive brand BDG. 

Kirkconnell's flare jeans feature a high-rise silhouette and a lived-in look with their ripped knees. The wallet-friendly style comes in sizes 24 to 34 and is available in black and light blue denim.

What shoppers say

With an average rating of 4.2 stars, Urban Outfitters shoppers call the Wilco high-waisted pants the "best jeans ever."

"Seriously, the cutest jeans ever once they're broken in," writes one shopper. "I sized up, but other than that, they're so comfy, and I wear them all the time."

One thing to keep in mind before picking up the "Bachelor"-approved style isthat many shoppers noted the jeans run small and require sizing up one and two sizes.
