Kylie Jenner, the coolest Kardashian with the best blue hair, has proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that the coolest and sexiest bathing suit trend for this summer is the high-waisted bikini.
Jenner posted the dreamy, black and white snapshot on her Instagram this morning without caption, just a skull emoji. It’s an arty, shadowy take on the bikini selfie, which we would expect from the blue-haired Kardashian.
As cool as her photo is, it is her choice of bikini that impresses the most. We’ve been team high-waist bikini for some time now. Not only do high-waisted bikinis look good on many types of bodies, they’re just a bit unconventional and thus make everyone look like cool fashion girls like Kate Upton on the cover of British Vogue. In Jenner’s case, it elongates the figure, and I adore the sheer panel at the top of her bikini bottoms. I dearly want to know who made that wonderful bikini, but I also do not want to know because it looks seriously expensive.
I can’t believe I am taking fashion inspiration from a woman half my age, but this look is genuinely spectacular. I find myself googling black, high-waisted bikinis, even though I live in the mountains and have not been to a beach or pool in several years. I don’t even particularly like hanging out at beaches or pools, but I would suck it up for the opportunity to wear a cool bathing suit like that.
