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. Frazer Harrison/Getty Images 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 you are 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. Apologies in Advance, But Holes Are the New Polka-Dots For example, Dua Lipa wore a G-string skirt for a night out. Addison Rae embraced the whaletail with a matching set. Instagram/@addisonraee Euphoria's Alexa Demie deemed the look red carpet worthy. Gregg DeGuire/Getty Images And Jennifer Lopez wore thong pants to work, because of course she did. Aside from scooping up G-strings from Skims or Savage x Fenty, 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.
