Love it or hate it, you can’t ignore Y2K trends. From mini bags and denim on denim, to hot pink and cute braided hairstyles, they’re everywhere. While many of us were bred on these trends thanks to MTV and the Disney Channel (Hannah Montana fans give a cheer!), there is a much-loved Y2K fashion trend that is back — the bare midriff.
Be it midriff flossing (wrapping string or ties around one’s bare midriff) or picking the shortest crop tops to flaunt your summer bod, the trend is fun, flirty and not to forget, extremely versatile.
Here are a few celebrity looks that show you how to flaunt your midriff the right way for the gram..
This actor-supermodel has the most enviable body and she leaves no opportunity to flaunt it. This bedazzled beach look is absolute fire! The seashell-shaped bralette and low waistline skirt shows off her midriff in a sexy yet elegant way. As always, her look is sultry and effortless.
This Hadid sister always rocks a great look on the runway, but she is undeniably the queen of casual fits. This white cropped top is a basic that everyone must have in their closet, which she has paired with low-rise denims making it easy-breezy. The addition of a black bomber jacket adds another layer of casualness, while her Terminator-style shield glares sets the look apart.
This much-talked about outfit from Miu Miu’s SS22 is one-of-a-kind. The tiny top and mini skirt cover just enough to let Hailey flaunt her midriff. With a sprinkling of a Britney Spears vibe, this look is not for the faint-hearted.
When in doubt, always go for a matching ensemble to flaunt your midriff. The pink Barbiecore aesthetic is adorable and the no-brainer bralette-denim combo is a classic. This outfit is the perfect example of how to flaunt the bare midriff while having a retro charm.
