Kendall Jenner’s Polka-Dot Bikini Is A Minimalist Approach To Bold Swimwear
Kendall Jenner has rocked just about every print in the style book. She's definitely played favorites with cheetah spots this season, but she's also donned snakeskin from time to time, and she's majorly switched it up with handful of zebra-striped pieces, too. It's no surprise then, the model's affinity for playful patterns has transferred into her swimwear. From safari-inspired one pieces to sweet polka-dot bikinis, Jenner's swimsuit collection is certain to be chock-full of fun motifs this summer.
Like many of Hollywood's biggest names, Jenner is currently parading around the French Riviera to attend the glamorous 10-day affair that is the Cannes Film Festival (which officially wraps up May 25). She touched down in Cannes on Weds., wearing a bright neon-green set that you could spot from a mile away. She swiftly changed into something more laid-back for a day of running errands in The City of Lights, and then later in the day, she hit peak relaxation mode.
Jenner took to her Instagram on Thurs. to give her fans a first look at what you can expect from her beach looks in the coming months — and as you probably could have guessed, playful prints are definitely going to be worked into the mix.
The model relaxed poolside on May 23, reaching for a baby-blue polka-dot bikini prior to soaking up some sun rays (and snapping a few pics). Jenner's set consisted of a bandeau-inspired top with über-thin spaghetti straps and high-waisted bottoms, both of which were designed in a scrunch-like fabric.
As if often the case with most prints, there are bold ways to wear them and then there are more understated approaches, as well. Jenner's polka-dot bikini is definitely an example of the latter. Small, spaced out spots fleck the model's two-piece set for a sweet, minimalist-approved take on the retro pattern.
Jenner's lounging look also included a pair of thin-rimmed shades — an accessory that's become her signature — and a bright-orange Goyard tote that presumably contained some sunscreen and a good poolside book.
Swim season will be here in no time, so now's officially the time to start stocking up on fresh suits. Ahead, The Zoe Report found a handful of polka-dot bikinis inspired by Jenner's.
