You didn't need to be a fashion fiend in the early 2000s to recall that visible thongs were all the rage. You'd see them peeking out of mini skirts,low-rise jeans, and even dressy eveningwear. It was a fashion moment that many of us thought (or maybe hoped) would never return, but leave it to Dua Lipa to prove us totally wrong.

If you were scrolling through Instagram yesterday, you might have seen Dua Lipa and Donatella Versace's joint grid post. And if you scrolled down just a little bit further, peeking out of a black dress with a cut-out back...boom, there it was. A Versace logo-adorned thong.

Donatella captioned the picture, 'The news is out! We are excited to announce the Versace 'La Vacanza' women’s collection, which we have co-designed. We will be showing the collection on Tuesday 23rd May in Cannes, France. We cannot wait to show you what we have created!​' And if this is just a tease of the collection, we can't wait to see what they have in store!

This isn’t the first time Dua has resurrected this sexy trend that's straight out of the Noughties. At the start of the year, she wore a diamanté sheer dress with a visible white thong. The dress sparked a conversation about the return of the thong, while simultaneously foreshadowing her looks for 2023.

So, are you ready to embrace the peekaboo thong revival? It might not be for everyone, but if you’re feeling bold and want to pay a little homage to Y2K, give it a try!
