Crop tops or trousers with strings or ties that you wrap around your waist — a trend that came to be called ‘midriff flossing’ last summer — are making their presence felt once again. The risque trend was worn by A-listers like Emily Ratajkowski, Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner in the recent past. We take a look at how you can introduce the trend to your summer wardrobe.
