Trendy, Sexy, and Cool, This Micro-Trend Has It All

Midriff-baring outfits are just one of “naked” trends that is set to define fashion this spring and summer—a direct departure from the cozy sweatpants and oversize clothing that have become a mainstay in wardrobes over the last year. There are plenty of ways to wear an exposed midriff outfit—from baggy jeans to slouchy trousers to looks with belly chains—but one of my favorite styles are the skirt sets that have been popping up everywhere recently. Undeniably sexy and cool, the micro-trend is one I want in my closet immediately.

Whether you opt for a maxi silhouette or a micro mini skirt, there are so many chic pieces on the market to scoop up right now. Jacquemus has a stunning linen cutout version, With Jéan has the coolest graphic prints of the season, and cult NYC brand Mirror Palais has the forward set you’ve probably spotted on Instagram already. Ahead, see the best midriff-baring skirt sets to add to your closet and how insiders are styling them.

Jacquemus always knows exactly what women want to wear, so it's no surprise he has the most stunning take on the trend;

Spotted in Rotate's F/W 21 collection, this look is the ultimate go-to look for summer.

One of the swimsuit trends to look out for this year? Mini skirts layered on top for an instant outfit that works beyond the beach.



One of the coolest ways to wear suiting? A matching set with a cropped jacket.



We can't stop talking about how much we love midriff floss and this is one of the coolest ways to wear it.

There's no doubt about it, With Jéan is the label that you'll spot in every fashion person's closet.
