Here’s the weird new way celebs are flaunting their skin
April 7 in NYC: Sartorially savvy Bella Hadid (who’s the number one fan of this trend) styles her sheer mesh body with an oversize matching track suit.
February 21 in Milan: Gigi Hadid coolly rocks this fashion-over-function look at Milan fashion week: A high-cut brown bodysuit paired with shredded denim, topped with a more weather-appropriate shearling coat.
April 11 in NYC: Hailey Baldwin’s monochromatic outfit is a case study in texture: A low-slung, wide-leg pant reveals the high cut of her matching mesh bodysuit, while a fuzzy cropped sweater softens this neutral-hued look.
March 6 in Paris: Leave it to Kendall Jenner to take a trend to the extreme. Her sheer bodysuit flaunts her pelvis and covers her bust with a strip of barely-there denim. She smartly balanced out the racy ensemble with a nylon overcoat.
In what’s perhaps the season’s most puzzling trend, hip cleavage is happening.
Hip cleavage, you ask?
Let me explain. Remember those superhigh-cut bathing suits from the ’80s? The ones that Cindy, Claudia and Christy rocked on magazine covers? They’re baaaack.
But — as with any reincarnated trend — the look returns with a twist: In 2017, it’s all about bodysuits, not beachwear.
The current crop of It supermodels — Bella, Gigi, Kendall — can’t get enough of ’em. And they’re not saving them for “Baywatch”-esque beach frolicking—they’re styling these hip-baring getups with threads you’d wear on the street.
