Ready or not—the latest barely-there trend is officially taking its place in the fashion world and, honestly, we're here for it. Clearly, it's the year of barely-there dressing since we've seen trends like G-string bras and lace-up midriffs take off, and now it's time we introduce you to the next chapter of the revealing trend, what we're calling "napkin tops". (Yes, they're exactly what you're thinking.) They basically involve a simple piece of fabric in the front and thin straps that tie up in the back and fashion people are 100% pulling them off.
I've been following this trend for a while and now that there are enough examples and shopping options, I'm confident these are definitely a thing. The designs from indie brands like Trois, Stone Label, and Subsurface were the first to flood my Instagram feed and now more and more brands are putting their spin on it, meaning there's something for every style and budget. Scroll down to see and shop the 16 best backless tops.
Remember the scarf tops of the '90s? This trend is like those, but better.

It's not hard to see why the name "napkin top" applies here, right? The crinkled texture reminds me of a tissue or cloth napkin.

You know it's a napkin top when there's nothing but razor-thin straps in the back.
