Whether you like it or not, the bare midriff trend has landed and we simply can’t ignore it. Although not every woman is endowed with the gift of a naturally slim figure or blessed with the patience for gym duties, this fascinatingly frightening trend has us lusting for more. With that, we looked back at our favorite midriff-baring looks from the colorful spring runways to inspire—and dare you—to embrace the trend.
Blumarine’s spring runway was filled with all sorts of boldness—from the footwear to the earrings. While the bare midriff is essentially sensual, this gypsy-inspired look left a cheekier trail we also approve of.
Emilio Pucci dressed up the gypsy woman for spring, creating a bevy of alluring stomach two-piece dresses. This all-white number is our favorite for reinforcing a sense of restraint in color amid the ornate prints.
Badgley Mischka did not shy away from the exposed midriff trend with this beach-ready look.
This look showed off Dolce & Gabbana’s ability to keep everything tasteful and elegant by opting for minimal skin exposure.
Chaddo Ralph Rucci embarked on a more conservative approach to the trend, infusing a dash of sensuality to the otherwise sharp and structured silhouette of this suit.
The loose fit of the cropped top afforded a breezy finish to this blue ensemble.
Jen Kao took the sensual appeal of the bare midriff a notch lower to churn out this cool and casual look fit for lazy day dressing.
