Midriff Flossing

The coolest must have of the ss21

By Giorgia Festi

From dresses to t-shirts, tops to swimsuits, Midriff Flossing is only at the beginning of its popularity.

After being spotted on all the ss21 catwalks, top models, influencers and pop stars haven't been able to do without it and we will be next.

But what exactly is it about?

The protagonists of the Midriff Flossing are two cords, laces or flaps of fabric that, starting from the garment, wrap the waistline enhancing the figure and giving a glamorous touch to the silhouette.

This style has made space timidly already during the ss20 but without arousing too much interest. It was Emily Ratajkowski who launched the production of lace-up clothing and introduced them at a later time in her brand Inamorata.

Shortly thereafter Hailey Bieber, Zendaya, Bella Hadid and Dua Lipa clogged their Instagram profiles with looks characterized by Midriff Flossing.

Walking through the IG profiles of the brands of the moment, Jacquemus is certainly the brand par excellence that rides this trend. Even if this summer it will be difficult to be able to spend the holidays in the south of France and relax in the lavender fields in Provence, we can wear her clothes and catapult ourselves into her reality; the ss21 collection is full of lace-up dresses and Midriff Flossing crop-tops in soft and pastel tones.

Dion Lee in his ss21 collection shows how this trend can be more complicated than it wants to appear: playful dresses cut at the waist, crocheted shirts with long ropes and knitted garments set with laces and flaps of fabric to pay homage to the 2000s.

Last but not least, Inamorata launches midriff flossing within its Beachwear collection: always a champion of the female body, Emrata uses the laces of the swimsuit as a means to emphasize how much any body with any physicality must be enhanced and "adored" by us women first.

We just have to choose the Midriff Flossing that suits us best for a summer full of trends.
