Lizzo is embracing the hottest swimwear trend of late: the thong. On Sunday, the “Special” singer and Yiti founder shared photos on Instagram from her dreamy beach vacation, where she was spotted on a beautiful white sand beach and under an outdoor shower. Wearing a vibrant bikini in one of summer’s hottest colors, a barbeque-inspired fuchsia, she posed in the striking snaps and responded to Beyoncé’s Lizzo shoutout in her “Break My Soul” remix with Madonna.
The singer rib set from Good American features a classic triangle top and high-cut thong bikini bottom with subtle ties, all in a comfortable crinkle fabric. Hot-pink suit layered over Chanel fishnet tights adorned with floral details, a Chanel pearl chain she wore as a belt and retro shield sunglasses with pink rims, the result was quite a unique styling approach. Lizzo isn’t new to experimenting with fashion — most recently, she was covered head-to-toe in a Balenciaga caution-tape bodysuit for Elle UK’s September cover.
Originally popular in the ’80s and ’90s, the thong has seen a strong resurgence this summer, with celebrities everywhere rocking the revealing, minimal-coverage style. Vanessa Hudgens recently wore a similar, bright pink version of the Hunza G on her Italian vacation, Kim Kardashian modeled a new micro style from Skims, and Beyonce chose one embellished with hundreds of glittering crystals for her “Renaissance” album cover.
Ahead, check out Lizzo’s trends and shop her perfect set.
