As the flossing fashion trend circles back to the spotlight today, the look is now meant to be a subtle form of sexy with a touch of high fashion. In fact, everything from the back and the midriff to sleeves, dresses, and skirts can be touched up with a flossy, stringy element. “Crisscross, cording, and wrap-around embellishments help make baring some skin in the summer feel more elevated and intentional, rather than just simply exposed,” Jordan Stolch tells InStyle.
Today, this look has made its appearance on the runways from designers like Jacquemus and Michael Kors in their S/S ’21 collections, and it hasn’t stopped growing since. You may have noticed it on your social media feeds more, as influencers and celebrities alike are donning this popular style more. It’s a look that could be accredited to Emily Ratajkowski, whose Instagram sometimes sees her flaunting this style, for being one of the first to bring it to the forefront through her bikini brand, Inamorata, which showcases various styles of wraparound bikinis. Now, it’s commonplace for many women.
