When it comes to summer fashion we’ve seen a lot of trends come and go.
From Love Island’s Faye Winter setting the risqué underboob trend, to Molly-Mae Hague’s infamous wrap over tops, it’s been a year of daring tops.
But it seems fashion brands don’t think this is enough as celebrities have stepped out sporting a new style of top which can only be best described as a small piece of fabric with a safety pin holding it together for dear life.
Now, don’t get us wrong, I'm all for “if you’ve got it, flaunt it”, and as long as you like what you’re wearing, no one else’s opinions should matter.
That being said, could it be that this is one step too far?
The tops in question have been given the name of 'pin-tops' as it literally does mean a top held together with a dainty pin.
Lyst reports that "in the past 2 weeks, searches on Lyst have spiked 78 percent, with “front tie top”, “lace up top” and “pin top” being the most frequently searched keywords."
This dramatic increase comes after model Bella Hadid stepped out in a black version of the raunchy item.
Kendall Jenner also debuted the daring look during the Jacquemus catwalk in June 2021.
Megan Fox even stepped out sporting a raunchy red version and whilst she looked absolutely incredible, it took us some time to be convinced.
Of course all of these ladies looking stunning but what if you don't fit into the stereotypical mould of a model body?
Again, if you've got the confidence to still wear it, then absolutely do, but we can't help but feel this is made with a certain boob and stomach size in mind – no one wants a nip slip or unexpected boob reveal.
Ex-islander, Megan Barton Hanson took to her Instagram to show off her SHEIN top, which even came with a matching skirt – how fancy?
Whilst Zara McDermott took an extra precaution with a black knitted top with a full hem that would hopefully prevent any malfunctions.
The last thing you need is a gust of wind and your top starts taking off – get all your boob tape at the ready.
I managed to get on board with the wrap over tops, but I think this might be one too far for the fashion industry.
