Rachel Bilson is "totally cool" with the 2000s trend for jeans and dresses making a comeback.

In a video for InStyle magazine's Let's Unpack That series, the actress reflected on some of her top style and career moments.

One topic that was up for discussion was the dress over jeans fashion trend that Rachel and her The O.C. co-stars helped popularise in the early 2000s, and the 40-year-old insisted she had no problem with the "strong" look.

"As you can tell, (it was) the fashion of the early aughts. Jeans under a dress. Which by the way, totally cool with wearing that now, once again. Everything comes back. I have a vintage patchwork... maybe '80s purse, a tonne of bronzer, a lot of make-up, because we came from the set of The O.C. straight to this event," she said as she looked at a photograph of herself in the look at red carpet event. "I'm OK with it though. This is something I look at and I'm not horrified. I'm young and it was a choice, and a strong choice at that."

However, Rachel wasn't so convinced by some of her designs for her Edie Rose capsule collection created in partnership with the team at DKNY back in 2008.

"I think I was approached by DKNY and I really liked their brand and everything they kind of represented and the aesthetic. It was casual and simple and that's kind of how I am. So, it was a nice fit," the star shared, before gesturing towards a capelet included in the line. "This is pretty special. Probably a lot of it, if I looked back now, I wouldn't wear it, but this isn't bad! It's cute. Little capelet of sorts."
