One of my favorite trends sprinkled in the Spring 2012 RTW fashion shows is the bare midriff. Honestly, I’m a bit surprised at how much I like it. I was in high school at the height of Britney, so the exposed midriff got pretty played out.

I think what brought me around to the bare midriffs of Spring 2012 was the way they were styled. Instead of pairing the midriff tops with low-waisted bottoms, exposing the maximum amount of stomach possible, this year’s look is much more demure and subtley sexy, showing either a sliver of skin or just a section of the ribcage. It feels like a much more wearable option.

Though I don’t know if I’ll be sporting the look anytime soon, simply because I’m just not that brave yet, I love the way it looks and the summer vibe it brings.

What do you think of the midriff? Love it or hate it?
