Brace Yourself, Because Butt Fashion Is Back
Words-on-the-butt pants have risen from the dead.
Remember back in the early '00s when butts were all the rage? They were the topic of hit songs, a focus when talking about celebrities, and a feature that was frequently highlighted when it came to top fashion trends. Well, it turns out they're coming back — you know, style-wise (our anatomy hasn't changed) — with peek-a-boo thongs and rear-graphics slowly starting to resurface.
If you can easily recall round one of this craze, we're sorry. You might have to momentarily relive some of the most cringe-worthy days of your youth until it all blows over. However, if your 2020/21 self is fully on board with butt fashion, thanks to its pioneers like Hailey Bieber and a decent portion of Gen-Z, that's cool, too. There are plenty of ways to follow along.
Aside from scooping up G-strings from Skims (Shop It: $14; skims.com) or Savage x Fenty (Shop It: $23; savagex.com), which you can casually pull up above your waistband, we've found a few printed, embroidered, and bedazzled butt pants you'll want to add to cart. Not ready to go full-out just yet? Try some back-of-the-leg details for a more subtle version of the trend.
