Fashion just can't get enough of the biggest '90s and Y2K trends, and neither can we. First, slip dresses returned with a vengeance, then strappy sandals became the unofficial shoe of summer, and now butterflies are making a major comeback.
This sweet detail has recently been seen on Dua Lipa, Bella Hadid, and Olivia Rodrigo. The Future Nostalgia singer wore a Versace dress featuring a crystal butterfly on the bodice at the 2021 Grammys that took over our timelines. Rodrigo has worn countless butterfly printed outfits while promoting her new album Sour (2021). And both Lipa and Hadid have been seen wearing Blumarine's Y2K butterfly-themed collection for the 2022 resort season. Instagram's style set has also given butterfly details the seal of approval, and the cute detail has been making an appearance on all things clothes, accessories, and even beauty.
If you feel a bit intimidated by this colourful, supercute trend then don't worry because there are tons of ways to wear it without going overboard. For a low-key look, try pairing a minimal top featuring a single embroidered butterfly with your favourite pair of jeans, or you could focus on accessories by adding a sparkly necklace or glittery hair clips to a playful look. If you really want to go bold, why not rock a head-to-toe co-ord covered in butterflies?
