After the bra in sight, the act of showing off the thong with low-rise skirts (trousers or jeans). A trend that looks to 2000s, to the bubbly Paris Hilton that showed triangles of colored lace, animalier tulle or cotton studded with crystals. Much to show and nothing to reveal: this unscrupulous fashion detail will capture the attention of more or less prying eyes. It will enhance the natural feminine forms and, in particular, the curve of the hip.
The fashion of the moment sees skirts and dresses with wide openings as protagonists: a sophisticated aesthetic form of fashion applied body art that plays with the curves of the body, with the elegant sinuosity that follows the bust, waistline and hips. Anatomy gives movement and life to tight clothing, while thin threads cut, segment and indicate certain areas of the figure. It is the beauty of the female body.
Real or fake thong?
This trend, seen on the catwalk by Givenchy, Fashion East and Versace for the collection spring summer 2021, is not limited to explicitly showing an intimate detail but has become a creative element trompe l’oeil: the fabric string is itself part of the garment. The fake thong is sexy and shows a somewhat confident look to the wearer.
From the fashion show to celebrities
In a short time the trend of the thong in sight jumped off the catwalks, welcomed with pleasure by pop stars and models: Dua Lipa (cover photo) opts for a knitted skirt resting on the hips worn with a thong with jewel detail, while Emily Ratajkowski shows a thin elastic on the hip line shown off by a mischievous cut-out dress.
The trend could be also applied on the beach, with skimpy bikinis and small ones.
