The Revealing Fall Micro-Trend Everyone's Flaunting on Instagram

Before fall turns into winter and the temperatures completely drop, there is one trend you need to know about, and that trend is long-sleeve open-back tops. While this top trend certainly falls into the micro-trend category, I would be lying if I said I wasn't a tad overwhelmed by how many fashion girls I have seen donning this top on Instagram. From simple ribbed versions to silky, more elevated styles, this revealing backless-top trend has surely taken wind, and there's no stopping it. 

So far, the styles held together with a delicate tie on the small of the back are the fan favorite, but after doing some more digging, I was able to discover a few other versions that are equally jaw-dropping. This new micro-trend will make all of your jeans, trousers, and other basic bottoms feel 10 times more exciting. I promise. 

Ahead, see how the Instagram fashion set is styling open-back long-sleeve tops, and prepare to see even more as we enter fall. 

Skater jeans and retro sneakers are the perfect pieces to offset this delicate top trend.

There is nothing influencers love more right now than an outfit consisting of an open-back top, claw hair clip, and rectangle sunglasses.

As you begin to dabble in fall's warm color palettes, opt for a more tonal look. Furry statement coats are welcome.

This Orseund Iris top has been a hit among fashion lovers for quite some time now, and it's clear its popularity is not declining any time soon. 

Instead of a plain T-shirt and jeans, opt for a revealing backless version to spice things up. 

This all-white look is so good that it's giving me chills. 

While a lot of these long-sleeve open-back tops look quite similar, it's this one from Lioness that I've spotted the most on Instagram.

I am convinced these tops make for the prettiest pictures. 

Keep things casual and cool with an open-back top, high-rise loose trousers, and classic Vans.
