The latest revealing micro-trend to hit the fashion world has officially arrived. In case you haven’t noticed, the risqué look that has really been taking off this season has elements like midriff floss and hip cutouts that have everyone talking (because that’s just what a good, divisive trend does). So here we are yet again to point out a skin-baring detail on the rise. Are you even surprised, though?
The micro-trend in question is what I’m calling ruched rings. Think of it as a continuation of the cutout trend—it can be bold or subtle, depending on the size and placement, but no matter what, it’s eye-catching. Designers such as Anna Quan, Christopher Esber, and Cult Gaia are leading the way with everything from tops and dresses to matching skirt sets. The ring details feel like a nod to the ’70s in a completely fresh and modern way, adding a touch of retro appeal without looking costumey. Scroll down to shop all the stunning pieces that feature these ring details and to take a look at how fashion people wear them.
