Trends from the 90s and 00s have been taking over our wardrobes for the last few months and we haven’t been able to get enough of them. But, one controversial trend from the 00s has been gaining more and more traction over the past few months, and whether you love or hate them, exposed thongs are back.

Thanks to celebrities such as Bella Hadid and Hailey Bieber, exposed thongs are back on the fashion radar.
