I Guess Thong Bikinis Are Becoming a Mainstream Trend

I Guess Thong Bikinis Are Becoming a Mainstream Trend

A-list celebrities. Bloggers. Victoria’s Secret Angels. Fashion designers. I’m fairly certain almost every category of Insta-famous fashion person wore a thong bikini this summer. Let’s discuss.

There are a few factors that I believe converged to give us the 2019 version of the thong bikini. However, the general ’80s influence happening now is majorly culpable. The high-cut bikini trend, which was huge three decades ago, goes hand in hand with a thong back. Legs cut so darn high lend themselves naturally to a skimpy coverage behind. Other ’80s swim fads, such as wearing chain belts and socks and sneakers with your bikini, are back too. Basically, we’re aspiring to be Sofia Vergara circa a long time ago on Miami Beach.

I should clarify we’re not only talking bikinis here. Oh, yes, there’s the thong one-piece. We thought one-pieces were safe territory for full-coverage cuties like myself, but the … Read the rest

Despite such a vast selection to pick Read the rest

6 New Bikini Trends I Can Only Really Describe as Shocking

6 New Bikini Trends I Can Only Really Describe as Shocking

At this point in the season, we’ve pretty much been sticking to a uniform that involves bikinis, denim shorts, sandals, and little else. Typically there’s only one objective during these summer weekends, and that’s to get as much sun as possible, wearing one of the barely there bikinis that are designed to maximize sun exposure and minimize tan lines. But if you thought settling for a plain triangle bikini was good enough, you thought wrong. Instead, we’ve noticed a new crop of barely there bikini trends on the rise—and these styles are so minimal they’re shocking.

Like most controversial swimsuit trends, celebrities and fashion girls are leading the pack here. We’ve spotted them in bikinis that are redefining what “barely there” even means and some that are straight-up optical illusions. I may be slightly shook at the thought of donning any of these styles, but I can’t deny how … Read the rest

8 Under-$150 Swimsuits That Are Already Celeb-Approved for Summer

8 Under-$150 Swimsuits That Are Already Celeb-Approved for Summer

It’s no secret that celebrities have a penchant for wearing designer items. While we love luxurious, high-end fashion as much as the next person, it’s always refreshing to see our favorite celebs steps out wearing something affordable. After all, the so-called “investment pieces” that we spot them wearing are just that—investments. They’re items that we plan and save for; they may be expensive purchases, but they’re not necessarily spontaneous purchases. We keep track of any affordable and celebrity-approved pieces we find for days when we feel the need to expand our wardrobe without minimizing our bank accounts.

Lately, many of those affordable and celebrity-approved pieces that we’re seeing are swimsuits… no surprise there; it is mid-July after all. Celebs like Selena Gomez, Ashley Graham, Kylie Jenner, and more, have all been spotted wearing swimsuits that are $150 and under. Keep scrolling to see them all (because why not … Read the rest

Sophie Turner's Honeymoon Swimsuit Couldn't Be More on Trend

Sophie Turner's Honeymoon Swimsuit Couldn't Be More on Trend

After their much-hyped second wedding in France, Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas traded paparazzi-filled celebrations for peace and quiet on a private island over 5000 miles away from Europe. The newlyweds are spending their honeymoon at the Soneva Fushi luxury resort in the Maldives, a chain of islands off the coast of India. The resort offers beautiful villas that are definitely honeymoon-worthy, with one nine-bedroom villa exceeding $20,000 per night. How’s that for luxury? 

In a photo Joe Jonas posted on Instagram, Turner wears a very on trend piece on her honeymoon: a pastel-pink one-piece swimsuit. One-pieces just might be the most popular trend for celebrities this summer, with everyone from Priyanka Chopra to Sarah Jessica Parker making them look like a million bucks. Plus, different shades of pink are also having a moment right now, so Turner’s suit is the perfect combination. Scroll down to see Sophie Turner’s … Read the rest

Priyanka Chopra Jonas Wore the Most Flattering Swimsuit Trend in Tuscany

Priyanka Chopra Jonas Wore the Most Flattering Swimsuit Trend in Tuscany

After Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas’s whirlwind wedding in France, Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Nick Jonas headed to Italy for some post-celebration R&R. As it turns out, Nick is an exceptionally good Instagram husband in Italy, blessing us with professional-looking photos of Chopra Jonas lounging poolside in Tuscany. Her photos have racked up over 2.8 million likes (and counting), but we don’t think the stunning setting is solely responsible: Her swimsuit definitely caught our eye. 

Her Montce Swim Cream Rib Kim One Piece With Belt ($198) is a particularly chic choice. We love the off-white color, but it’s the waist-defining belted detail that makes it super easy and flattering for anyone to wear. Since the cream color is already sold out, you’ll be glad to know that it comes in a pale blue and a bright red in case Chopra Jonas has influenced you with her cute suit. Scroll … Read the rest

All the Controversial Swimwear Trends That Are Definitely in Right Now

All the Controversial Swimwear Trends That Are Definitely in Right Now

What makes a swim trend controversial? It can be anything from how much coverage it provides (or, of course, doesn’t provide) to the potential for unpleasant tan lines to how much it resembles lingerie. That said, just because a swim trend is divisive doesn’t mean it’s not cool or that it’s off limits. In fact, while I, personally, tend to err on the safer side when it comes to beachwear, I can’t help but feel like I might just want to try a handful of the aforementioned suits myself—and I have a feeling you will, too.

From bra-style bikini tops every It brand is backing to the thong swimsuit movement that’s all the rage across the globe to the loincloth bottoms both celebrities and influencers are backing, today I’ve rounded up the six most controversial swim trends that, at least for the time being, are very much a thing. Now, … Read the rest

Selena Gomez Just Wore the Chicest $40 Swimsuit Imaginable

Selena Gomez Just Wore the Chicest $40 Swimsuit Imaginable

We’ve already taken swimwear tips from the likes of Margot Robbie and Jennifer Lopez so far this summer, but in case your collection could use yet another celebrity-approved style, Selena Gomez has you covered. Gomez did her best Baywatch impression in a supremely affordable red one-piece swimsuit, and it just might convince you to get your Pamela Anderson on. 

Ever the supportive friend, Gomez wore a swimsuit from her pal Theresa Mingus’s brand, Krahs, while in Mexico. Her Comino Rib One Piece Swimsuit rings in at a wallet-friendly $40, so we’re tempted to buy the white and navy versions as well. (It’s just a shame that there’s not enough time to get them before the Fourth of July.) Scroll down to see how Selena Gomez wore the affordable swimsuit, and shop Krahs pieces for yourself. We’re pretty sure the compliments will start rolling in, so go ahead and … Read the rest
