You know it’s peak summer when the temps hit 100 degrees, the beach is packed, and your IG feed is full of swimsuit selfies. We’re not complaining though, as our favorite actors, musicians, and models are posting up a storm, giving us one inspiring look after another. This season, you’ll notice the celebrity swimsuit trends range from cheeky thongkinis and plunging necklines to Barbiecore-inspired one-pieces.
A-listers have happily embraced this vibrant shade, with Eva Longoria sporting a sultry hot pink bikini back in July and Salma Hayek in a fuchsia one-piece that even Barbie herself would approve of. She posted a photo of the look on Instagram several days ago while splashing around in the pool. As much as we all love a bold color moment though, model Irina Shayk proved earlier this year that you can never go wrong with a strappy, black two-piece while Lori Harvey, too, has a penchant for neutral designs that feature alluring details like cutouts.
