Britney Spears Bares Her Midriff On 'X Factor,' Makes Us Miss 2003 (PHOTOS)

Every now and then, Britney Spears takes us back, waaaay back, to those days she was a just-out-of-high-school teen in a miniskirt and a red pleather jumpsuit.

The divine Ms. S sizzled up the "X Factor" stage on Thursday in an outfit that totally had us nostalgic for the early aughts: a slash-cut pewter halter top that showed off her tight abs. She probably wore one just like it while promoting "Toxic," right?

Brit Brit also took the time to weigh in on her fashion sense to Us Weekly, resulting in one of our favorite quotes ever: "It's just a girl thing. We just do what we do. Clothes are amazing."

Yes, Britney. Clothes are amazing.

The 30-year-old singer recently revamped another of her old looks (circa 2007), but trust us, this is a definitely preferred era when it comes to style.

Britney, a decade later: you've still got it.
