Bikini season in NYC at all times lags barely behind the one in L.A. for apparent causes, giving me as an East Coaster an opportunity to see which new traits are going to be large earlier than the primary good day. It additionally reveals me which previous traits are coming again for a second go. And whereas I’ve already seen tons of contemporary swimwear kinds to spend money on for summer season, there’s one bikini development from final 12 months that is making a good larger splash than any of its newer options: the upside-down bikini.
When you thought you’d escaped summer season 2021 with out ever having to flip your string bikini the wrong way up, you have been sadly mistaken. You see, the flip-flopped swimsuit development has already made its approach into 2022—and it isn’t even Could but. Within the final week alone, supermodel Elsa Hosk and Euphoria actress Sydney Sweeney have each posted pictures on their Instagrams that includes the controversial bikini hack. And after 2021’s exhibiting—which included Paloma Elsesser, Kendall Jenner, and Kourtney Kardashian, amongst others—it would be naïve of us to imagine that they’re going to be the one two to break them out this 12 months. Presumably, they’re however the first of many celebs to tie their bikinis tops the wrong way up now that heat climate is approaching.
Forward, see how Hosk and Sweeney are carrying the closely debated swimwear development in 2022.
