Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez Bring Back the Belly-Baring Dress

Thanks (or no thanks) to Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez, crop top, open front and belly baring dresses are back.

Miley Cyrus showed off her Pilates-toned tummy in this Emilio Spring 2012 beaded top and skirt when she accompanied boyfriend Liam Hemsworth to The Hunger Games premiere. She very nearly stole the limelight from the movie’s actual stars in this body-baring ensemble; it’s a good thing Jennifer Lawrence can hold her own:

Then it was Selena Gomez’s turn to flaunt her flat midsection. She did it with this Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2012 jacquard crop top and crystallized skirt outfit paired with Cesare Paciotti pink and orange studded pumps, which she wore to last Saturday’s 2012 Kids’ Choice Awards:

Having these two top-tier young Hollywood stars wear belly-baring dresses is enough to seal its “hot trend” status. Time to work out those abs, ladies — this is one trend that’s unforgiving.

If you’ve already got the body, then here are 5 belly-baring dress recommendations we’ve gathered for you. We love the edgy Finders Keepers dress and, what can be considered its total opposite, the sweet and sunny Kalmanovich Chamomile dress. If you want to try the trend but you’re a little shy, the Hybrid open front dress keeps things covered at certain angles, while the Reverse lattice ruffle dress gives just a little peekaboo!

This is a cute style to show off this summer, at the beach or by the pool. It’s nice for throwing over your swimsuit or layering over other summer pieces. At the very least, it can serve as a good motivation to finally get started on that workout we’ve been putting off for so long!
