Outfits that reveal skin have been gradually increasing since last year, but they became an unprecedented hit on the streets this summer when combined with Y2K fashion.
In addition to exposing the belly-button (stomach), we saw a wide variety of ways to reveal skin, such as cut-outs that reveal the shoulders, back, waist, and legs, crop-tops, low-rise bottoms, and sagging to create a low-rise look.
The body-toning boom seems to have played a large part in influencing this trend, but at the same time, many people showed off their plump stomachs as well.
This indicates that fashion is not necessarily about attracting the opposite sex anymore.
