If you thought Thursday’s story about activewear and exercise dresses was interesting (rather you than me), then we have another treat in store for you.
Enter the ‘pin top’ or ‘curtain reveal top’, which has surged in popularity in recent times.
The fashion trend was even endorsed by Vogue last week.
The Guardian reports that online searches for these tops have increased by 78% over the past two weeks:
After Megan Fox was spotted wearing a red cropped cardigan by French brand Jacquemus [below] like this, searches for the item went up 52% in 48 hours, and when Ratajkowski wore the Cult Gaia pin top in June it sold out.
Curtain reveal tops are part of a wider trend in fashion for clothes that reveal breasts in ways beyond typical Wonderbra-style cleavage.
It’s not just Megan, either.
You can see Kendall Jenner up top, and there’s also Emily Ratajkowski:
Well hey, if it isn’t Bella Hadid:
Hailey Bieber, Kaia Gerber (Cindy Crawford’s daughter), and Rihanna are also said to be fans.
Hannah Banks-Walker, the fashion and beauty director at Grazia, confirms that underboob is back with a bang:
“Fashion went through that period of shying away from anything that could be deemed remotely sexy and dresses became oversized,” she says. “I think now we’re definitely seeing a return to that sex appeal, unapologetically.”
Further celeb endorsements of the fashion trend via The Independent:
Cardi B, who is pregnant with her second child, was recently spotted showing off her baby bump in a vibrant bodysuit with geometric patterns in New Jersey, while Dua Lipa posed among palm trees in a black unitard with multiple cutouts and pink sleeves…
The desire for statement looks is part of the rise of the pandemic revenge outfit, which refers to an outfit characterised by plenty of extravagance to make up for being unable to wear “going out” clothes throughout the pandemic.
Just when you think you’ve heard it all, along comes “the pandemic revenge outfit”.
If you’re still working from home, and want a change from wearing pyjamas 24/7, then you do you.
We expect to see the exercise dress surge in popularity around Constantia and the ‘burbs in the coming months, but can the same be said for the ‘curtain reveal top’, which could be perfectly timed with summer around the corner?
Seth says he will monitor Newlands Village and report back to see if the trend hits.
We wait with bated breath.
