As if 2020 wasn’t freaky enough, we’re here to report on one more freaky thing that is guaranteed to show up in 2021. The trend we speak of is G-strings—built-in ones to be exact. Back in the early 2000s, we saw icons like Paris Hilton put their stringy undergarments fully on display for the world to see, but the exposed underwear look has yet to come back in style until just recently. Much to our surprise, we saw designers like Givenchy, LaQuan Smith, and Versace send out everything from dresses to pants donning tiny built-in G-strings (or something that at least gives off that effect) all over the S/S 21 runways.
Beyond the runways, we have already begun seeing this trend all over Instagram and retailers have started trickling the trend into their new arrivals sections. Considering the fact that this trend isn’t scheduled to blow up until next year, the current assortment of product we were already able to locate is a good sign that the future of the G-string movement is very promising. This trend is revealing, exciting, and sexy—three things we are now looking forward to in 2021. Go on to see how the fashion world is embracing this new trend and to shop the pieces we’re eyeing to get the look.
