Dua Lipa's Thongkini Pics Embrace Summer 2023 Trends Like Mermaidcore

Her Barbie character would be so proud.

It’s the summer of Dua Lipa. After dominating the charts with her “Dance the Night” single for the Barbie soundtrack and her cameo as Mermaid Barbie in the record-breaking film, the UK-born pop star cemented herself as a true icon — and not only for her stage presence. While her vocals and bops continue to draw attention, her everyday style has proven to be equally enviable, especially the mermaidcore vibes. Lipa’s fashion has recently had a very aquatic feel with lots of shimmer, shine, sequins, and metallics, as emphasized by her collab with Versace, and she always has the best red carpet moments.

Since the Grammy winner is always on top of the most recent fashions, it’s no surprise that she’s been rocking summer’s hottest swimwear trend, the thong bikini, to enhance her oceanic-inspired energy. The thongkini has been worn by what feels like every celeb ever this summer, including girlies like Hailey Bieber and Kendall Jenner, making it THE trend of the season. Keeping true to her merperson aesthetic, Lipa has a few thongkinis under her belt and on her Instagram this year. She’s rocked everything from a basic black set to a sequin aquamarine ‘kini that is very reminiscent of her blue Barbie look. If you’re looking for thongkini inspo, the looks Dua Lipa’s worn this year are a good start.
