Get these bikinis while they’re hot.
With spring break just around the corner, it’s time to invest in celeb-approved suits. Stars such as Emily Ratajkowski and Kendall Jenner are heating up Instagram feeds in their trending swimwear. Think: retro print two-pieces, sleek solid-color sets and even a custom knit number, in cuts ranging from micro to nano.
Here’s a look at their bombshell bikinis, with background on the brands and links to shop the styles.
Kitten Tropic bikinis are like catnip to beach babes. When Ratajkowski Instagrammed sultry snaps of herself wearing the brand’s irresistible “Española Way” top and bottoms on Sunday, her fans purred.
“So dreamyyyy,” wrote one. “ICONIC!!” added another.
Brooklyn-based founder Nicole Zane designs the curve-flattering cuts and paradise-inspired prints that pop. “The vibe is fun and sexy! I love the ’80s, ‘90s and ‘00s styles!” says the former stylist, an Alexa alum. The swimwear specialist is adding a reversible suit and solid-color essentials this spring. Pounce on them!
Millie Bobby Brown
Life is just a bowl of cherries, especially when you pick a Frankies Bikini. Millie Bobby Brown scored 4.5 million likes as well as bride and heart emojis from fiancé Jake Bongiovi on Instagram this month when she posed in her fruity two-piece from the cult California label. “Cherry lips, crystal skies,” she captioned the palm-fringed photo, quoting the Taylor Swift song, “Blank Space.”
The breezy brand was created by mother-daughter duo Mimi and Francesca Aiello, who have partnered with Pamela Anderson, Gigi Hadid, Naomi Osaka, Hailee Steinfeld and Sofia Richie. Want more cherries? The collab with Sydney Sweeney — who famously wore a pink Frankies stunner on “Euphoria” — has several juicy looks.
Lisa of Blackpink certainly took a shine to her sunny yellow Louis Vuitton monogram bikini. The K-pop hitmaker rang in the New Year in a tropical destination, sharing no less than six pictures of herself rocking the suit on Instagram. On the white sand and in the turquoise sea, she paired her lemony look with a camo sun hat and a cropped T-shirt.
Louis Vuitton’s instantly recognizable monogram swimwear is a jet-setter staple. Rita Ora, Cardi B, Christina Milian and Kylie Jenner have swagged its logo suits from Cannes to Coachella.
Two weeks ago, Hailey Bieber prowled a boat in Miaou’s skimpy green bikini top and thong edged in yellow, then posted front and back photos of the suit on Instagram. Available separately for preorder, the colorful pieces are already sold out online in many sizes.
The lifestyle brand’s founder Alexia Elkaim grew up between Paris, Los Angeles and New York, scouring markets for vintage finds, finessing her ’fits and developing her own sizzling style. Billie Eilish and Barbie Ferreira of “Euphoria” have been spotted poolside in Miaou swimwear, showcasing their tattoos.
Looks like Jenner is pulling strings. As in those slender cords connecting her custom Deparel coral knitkini. In early January, Kenny dropped four IG shots of herself at every angle, blissed out and barely clad in the reversible set, which is handcrafted of fast-drying, water-resistant knit elastane. Each piece is numbered and comes in a garment bag.
The Amsterdam-based knitwear label was co-founded by Rhode Island School of Design grads Max Mulder and James Langley. Pop star, actress and TikTok influencer Addison Rae is another admirer of their bespoke bikinis.
