Minimalists Will Love Jennifer Aniston’s Clever Swimsuit Hack

Her style is so classic.

Jennifer Aniston Bikini

It’s that time of year again: Our Instagram feeds are abounding in photos of celebrities on lavish and envy-inducing trips to Paris, Venice, Lisbon, and unnamed beaches around the world. An example of the latter recently came from Jennifer Aniston, who was soaking up the sun on a white sand beach somewhere back in July and shared a handful of photos for proof. Aniston’s black swimsuit top with a red bikini bottom, in particular, will appeal to the minimalists.

While she generally keeps a low-profile, Aniston took to Instagram on July 26 to post a picture of herself to her grid. In it, she lounged on the mystery beach wearing a low-cut, black strappy swimsuit, a tan straw hat, and clear, light-reflecting sunglasses in a square shape. She showed off her golden-blonde beach waves and glowing skin that could be seen from under her hat, and she gave the camera her signature, soft smirk. Behind her was a turquoise ocean, which looked fairly calm and low clouds peppered the sky.

She left much to the imagination and only used emojis in the caption. “👋🏼☀️❤️,” she wrote. From the angle, one couldn’t be sure of her swimsuit’s silhouette; however, a roundup of photos that the actor posted on August 15 showed that it was a bikini — perhaps not much of a surprise, given that she’s known to love the style and wear it pretty exclusively. “If I can be the first 80 year old to go out there successfully in a bikini, then I’ll take that on,” Aniston told PEOPLE in a 2016 interview. “I don’t think anybody needs to rein in anything because of an age.”

The bigger twist was that it wasn’t, as previously mentioned, a full black bikini. Rather, she went for a color-blocked look and wore the top with a red-hued bottom and a coordinated sarong — a clever way to switch things up (especially if you’re just as committed to the style) without shopping for a whole new suit.
