This New (Complicated) Underwear Trend Is Becoming a Thing

·3 mins read

When it comes to lingerie, we’ve shared our fair deal of insights. From the underwear brands that are known to last the longest and the trend that makes your legs look way longer to the "granny panties" that are weirdly hot and the proof that briefs are trending, we have a constant eye on what’s new in the undergarments industry. To add to the list of popular lingerie content, today we’re bringing you the latest underwear trend that’s taking over our favorite shopping sites.

Take a browse through Shopbop, Net-a-Porter, and Free People (to name a few), and if you have a thematic eye (like myself), you’ll notice strappy underwear trending on each site. From thongs with double straps to high-cut briefs with crisscross details, it seems the more complicated the better for lines like Cosabella and For Love & Lemons. While most lingerie brands offer the style in black, we did find a few options with more playful vibes like pretty prints and pastel colors. Keep reading to check out the new (complicated) underwear trend we’re noticing right now.
