After a year of seeing friends, co-workers and family members through FaceTime screens and Zoom meetings, it’s time to remind the world what the rest of you are like, beyond what’s out there. the screen. Say hello to the legs again! Back! Arms! And for those who dare, the belly! A handful of brands, such as Christopher Esber, Sir, Isa Boulder, and Aje to name a few, are making it easy to show your skin tastefully this summer.
The trend started last year in the midst of the pandemic, when “belly silk,” a brilliant term coined by my colleague Liana Satenstein, started popping up on revealing strappy ab skirts. This season, however, with more possibilities for social outings, there are even more ways to show off some skin this summer in style.
We’re not talking about your crop tops or your pre-pandemic clubwear; This season’s unstructured clothing selection consists of raised but unconventional cutouts on the waistline of midi dresses, linen blazers and tops. It’s a look that’s remarkably feminine, artfully modern, and alluring at the same time. You can also find delicate crisscross strappy details similar to last season’s skirts on sleeveless blouses and knit dresses, and there is no shortage of keyholes, halter tops and beautiful maxi revealing backs.
