There are plenty of unusual fashion trends to be found on Instagram these days, but the new ‘Black Tape project’ trend emerging recently has to be the strangest.

So what is it? Well, it’s pretty simple – women everywhere are going out wearing nothing but black tape, and the bizarre craze is really catching on.

Sure, we’ve also seen the ‘glitter bum’ phase, and the very weird ‘camel toe’ underwear trend this year, but none of them have taken off as much as the so called ‘black tape project’ over recent times.

The #blacktapeproject has emerged as one of the most popular hashtags on social media in recent days, and more and more people are showing off their bizarre outfits online.

The description on the project’s Facebook page reads: “Embodying the character of Miami’s nightlife culture, The Black Tape Project incorporates one of the most common household items, coalesced with Joel’s artistic flare and the natural beauty of the human body.”

The official Black Tape Project group actually tour the world showing off their incredible creations.

Now, a host of incredibly brave people are trying the craze out for themselves and taping up for nights out.
