This summer fashion seems to be all about the elegant reveal. We’ve previously spoken about cut out clothing, but this time we wanted to discuss the subtle sexiness that is strap detailing. Whether it be straps on the shoulder or across the stomach, the detail is one of the best ways to playfully show some skin.
Masterfully championed by Jacquemus – who sent multiple strappy pieces down the runway for its recent collection – the trend exudes what can only be described as the ultimate summer aesthetic. Comprising intricate back detailing, slinky front straps and tie fastening shoes, the trend is at once playful and artsy. Clearly born out of our collective boredom with loungewear, this trend inspires us to explore a slightly more edgy approach to fashion, one that allows us to lean into sexier, skin-bearing fits.
So, how are you going to style your strappy details? We love the look of strap-detailed tops with wide-leg jeans or strappy dresses with barely-there shoes. Let the detail be the star of the show by pairing these strap showcasing tops with a small necklace, or by styling mini skirts and dresses with strapped heels which tie up your leg. Available across tops, dresses, trousers, and shoes, the trend allows you to partake whilst feeling comfortable and confident in your outfit – what could be better?
