V-waist pants: This pants trend will be back in the spotlight in 2022

V-waisted pants have made a comeback. This Y2K imperative has not only taken over the catwalks of the big fashion brands in recent fashion weeks, but also street style. Throughout 2021, we’ve seen low-rise pants gain ground, with Gen Z largely responsible for bringing them back onto the scene. First worn by stars like Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, low-rise clothing was synonymous with freedom and revolution and became the best way to emphasize certain parts of the body, thereby spreading power and rebelliousness.

In the first collections of 2022, we have seen brands like Chanel, Brandon Maxwell or Philosophy di Lorenzo predicting that low-rise pants will be at the top of the list of trends that will reign this year. However, there is another fashion trend that made waves in the 2000s that is even more controversial. These are the pants with the V around the belly that are once again in the spotlight in the fashion world.

The main feature of V-waist pants is a waist that draws attention to the shape of the pelvis. This type of cut only became apparent in the 2000s when the wearer wanted to accentuate the hips, an area that is still somewhat revolutionary today.
