'Facekinis' Are The Newest Trend Taking Over China Beaches


Style is usually based on personal preference. However, I think we can all agree, China's latest style trend is anything but fashion.

Allow me to introduce you to the newest article of clothing that's making me question my faith in humanity: the facekini.

If the first thought that comes to your mind after seeing this thing is "WTF?," you're not alone. I've seen some pretty weird stuff in my life, but nothing compares to this.

Now, if you haven't thrown your laptop out a window or gouged your eyes out yet, I'll give you the deets on this unsightly ensemble. Apparently, these things are intended to protect your skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun while you're chilling at the beach, looking like a damn alien.

It turns out the facekini first surfaced back in 2004 and ever since, these things have been gaining a lot of popularity among the beach-going fashionistas in China's Shandong providence.

But if you ask me, the facekini might just be one of the most terrifying outfits in the universe. Seriously, beam me up, Scotty.

Check out the pictures below to see this insane fashion trend.

If you're someone who has nightmares about mutant creatures from sci-fi movies, you might want to cover your eyes.

There's an alarming new trend taking over the shores of China's Shandong province...

...that involves rocking some beach-friendly face masks that look weird as hell.

Apparently, these fugly accessories are called "facekinis"...

...and they're intended to protect your skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun.

Because let's be real, when SPF 100 or a simple straw hat doesn't seem to do the trick...

...the only logical thing to do is turn yourself into a scary AF sunbathing alien.

Seriously, who needs a multitasking outfit that goes from day to night...

When you have an ensemble that can take you from the beach...

To the ski slopes...

Or straight to a bank robbery, in the blink of an eye?

I mean, sure, you might frighten the living shit out of everyone around you...

...but at least you'll have the most versatile #OOTD ever invented.
