(Yes, they’re exactly what you’re thinking.) They basically involve a simple piece of fabric in the front and thin straps that tie up in the back and fashion people are 100% pulling them off.

I’ve been following this trend for a while and now that there are enough examples and shopping options, I’m confident these are definitely a thing.

7 Major Fashion Moments From Beyonce’s New “Black is King”
