As a huge fan of ‘90s fashion, I’ve been waiting for the strapless trend to make a resurgence and am here to report that it is back in full swing. Style icons from the decade including Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy, Halle Berry, Kate Moss, and Jennifer Aniston helped put the minimal silhouette on the map and made it a defining part of noughties fashion, and now, the style set is incorporating it back into their wardrobes. Much like many pieces from the ‘90s style canon, strapless pieces are officially back.

If you’re ready to adopt the style into your wardrobe, there are countless options on the market to add into your closet. From sculptural minidresses to sleek maxis to tube tops, there are so many cool takes designers are leaning into right now. Ahead, see the cool strapless pieces I would recommend adding into your shopping cart.
