We’re a mere two days away from December, and swimwear is probably not on your radar, unless you’re heading somewhere beachy for the upcoming holiday or you’re like me and have swimsuits on the brain year-round. Thanks to the latter category and because I follow a bazillion swimsuit brands on Instagram, I came across the latest “naked” trend and had to share.
This past summer, we brought you a handful of controversial swim trends, like the barely there swimsuit celebs favored, the rise of thong bikinis, and a look we dubbed as the loincloth bikini. Fast-forward to late November, and I’m still adding to the list of polarizing swimsuit styles. This time we have Victoria’s Secret model and swimwear designer Candice Swanepoel to thank for the new wave of “naked” bikinis and one-piece options.
The model recently posted the below photo wearing a style from her The C collection at Tropic of C. The skinny elastic cording straps used throughout the suits make this collection the newest iteration of barely there beach dressing. With the nearly invisible straps used on the bikini sets and sleek one-pieces, it makes for a fresh spin on the “naked” trend. Oh, and A-listers like Gigi Hadid and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley have already commented and liked Swanepoel’s photo of herself in the style, which basically means it’s set to be a celeb favorite this holiday vacation season.
