This past week, singer Olivia Rodrigo showed her love of plaid miniskirts, as she wore different varieties for several different occasions.

The most recent arrived on Friday night, as the 19-year-old pop star was photographed leaving Electric Lady Studio in New York City.

Rodrigo was rocking a pleated red plaid miniskirt showing off plenty of leg and a bedazzled black t-shirt with cap sleeves. On her feet, she had black combat boots, adding to her pop-punk look.

The singer also had several long braids done in her hair, with one visibly falling down her side in one of the photos (below).

She carried a small black bag with her, which she clutched by her side as she walked down the street.

According to Elle’s report, Rodrigo spent some time at the historic NYC recording studio before getting dinner at Zumba with her friend Daniel Nigo.

Earlier in the week, Olivia Rodrigo was seen in another plaid miniskirt, this time a brighter yellow color skirt to go with a black top, as she got on stage with pop legend Billy Joel.

Rodrigo shared an Instagram post from the memorable night at Madison Square Garden, which included a video clip of her standing with Joel as they sang his hit Uptown Girl together. The two hugged following the performance.

“literally because you played her uptown girl… such an honor to perform with one of the best songwriters alive last night. Billy Joel 4 life!!!!!” she wrote in her IG post’s caption.

In addition to performing Uptown Girl with Billy Joel, Rodrigo performed her hit song Deja Vu for the fans in attendance at MSG.

A longer video clip featuring Joel introducing Rodrigo and the various performances popped up on YouTube following the event.
