Visible Underwear Is One Of The Hottest Trends Of The Season
The fashion world is so unexpected. We say something would never be a trend and the next season we saw it go viral. One trend that was slowly making its way to the runways and streets as well is the visible underwear. It has started two years ago with everyone embracing sheer dresses. Then came the pantless trend, which was spearheaded by figures such as Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, and Florence Pugh.
This trend continued to rise in spring/summer 2023 with labels such as Bottega Veneta, Coperni, and Tom Ford showing their own versions of the pantless trend on the runways. Now a new take on exposing underwear is appearing and it is the peekaboo style.
The fashion world is abuzz with the resurgence of the peekaboo underwear trend, which has taken a more inclusive and refined turn in 2023. Unlike the whale tail fad of the early 2000s, which involved exposing one’s entire thong above low-rise pants, the peekaboo trend is all about showcasing a sliver of one’s preferred underwear style, be it boxers, briefs, thongs, or anything in between.
Fashion labels like Miu Miu and Gucci have featured models with just the top trimming of their underwear visible above the waistband, while other designers such as Yuhan Wang and Ester Manas have incorporated high-waist lacy briefs with an inch or more of exposed skin. Rick Owens, on the other hand, struck a unique balance between pantless and peekaboo with floor-length asymmetrical tops that revealed a glimpse of black underwear on the side.
The 2023 version of the peekaboo trend is more versatile and inclusive, featuring various types of underwear, fabrics, and styles. From sporty to sultry, casual to dressy, the peekaboo trend allows fashion enthusiasts to experiment with their undergarments in a subtle and sophisticated manner. With its elegant and playful vibe, the peekaboo trend is set to become one of the hottest fashion statements of the year.
