Emily Ratajkowski is making a case for indoor sunbathing. On Aug. 14, the model shared photos of herself lounging on the living room floor in a white ruched bikini in the shade Avorio from her swimwear brand, Inamorata. The strappy swimsuit features a pair of high-cut bottoms and a balconette top with thick ribbon straps that form a neat bow against her back. Letting the silky swimsuit speak for itself, she kept her accessories simple, opting only for a pair of gold hoop earrings.
While most of us have attempted to beat the summer heat wave by closing the blinds and cranking up the AC, Ratajkowski’s indoor swimsuit is certainly an innovative solution. Rather than spread a beach towel in the sand, the model lounged on the living room rug, lights dimmed, and posed for the camera. It might not be the best way to work on your tan, but it’s one alternative to leggings and lounge sweats.
Where most celebrities have embraced the thongkini trend, Ratajkowski’s look accentuated the back of the swimsuit with a thick, pearlescent fabric reminiscent of the quiet-luxury trend made popular by Sofia Richie Grainge earlier this year. The delicate bow tie in the back and the rich fabric made the two-piece ensemble look luxe, while the decision to wear it indoors speaks to the versatility of bikinis in summer — indoors or out, sometimes a swimsuit is the entire ‘fit. Ratajkowski completed the outfit with tousled red hair, a glossy pink lip, and brushed-up eyebrows.
Earlier this month, Ratajkowski also debuted her first Victoria’s Secret campaign, which features a number of lingerie pieces designed to lift and shape the wearer.
