Ciara's Night-Out Look Features a Cutout Thong Bodysuit and Sheer Skirt
Ciara sure knows how to put together a scroll-stopping look. On Jan. 22, the "Better Thangs" singer stepped out in an all-black outfit that combined several of our favorite fashion trends. On top, she wore a sleeveless black bodysuit with a large keyhole and side cutouts, and on bottom, a completely sheer maxi skirt with a slit that reached all the way up to her waist. Ciara showed off every angle of the ensemble while walking to her car for an Instagram video, revealing that her bodysuit also had a thong-style fit.
The mother of three accessorized with black lace-up sandals, a collection of gold bangles on both wrists, and a large diamond ring. She wore her long, honey-colored hair straight and added a swipe of red lipstick to complete the night-out look.
Ciara wound up igniting mixed discourse upon sharing her outfit on Instagram, with some criticizing its revealing nature and others quickly rising to her defense. One follower commented, "I mean she's beautiful. She ain't gotta do all this doe," while another chimed in, "I absolutely love you and your style! Thank You for normalizing women/mothers with sexy and REAL Bodies." To all the hubbub, we say: let women wear whatever they want, whenever they want. Full stop.
Ciara is certainly no stranger to cutouts and leg slits — the silver latex dress she wore to cohost "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve" came with a waist-high slit, and her CMT Artists of the Year Awards gown was covered in sheer-paneled cutouts.
