Vanessa Hudgens has been collecting summer 2022’s hottest swimwear trend thongkinis for years. The 33-year-old “High School Musical” actor is basically, the queen of swimsuits, one of the celebrities who often inspires beach envy on Instagram. Hudgens typically reaches for the thongkini style, which includes an ultra-high leg bottom, pulled to the waistline above the hips, and a thin, triangular strip of fabric at the back. She shops many fashion-favorite resort-wear labels for her beach-ready looks, including 437, Hunza G and Naked Wolfe.
But it’s how Hodgens skillfully styles her suit that fans admire, making the thong her own. Whether it’s a three-piece set that includes a matching headscarf, layers upon layers of body chains, or retro sunglasses, she never strays from her signature bohemian aesthetic.
