Janelle Monáe wore a colorful striped Calzedonia bikini in Cabo with the most incredible gold tassel drop earrings. “Are you sure that’s Janelle?,” I said to myself, squinting at the screen when I first came across this stylish moment. Based on her red carpet history, I know that Janelle doesn’t wear color often – unless there’s a powerful meaning behind it. She tends to stick to a black-and-white color palette as a tribute to the working class. Then again, that’s for public appearances, and maybe a beach day with friends calls for different rules. Well, I respect them, whatever they are, Janelle, because this look is working for you.
Janelle basked in the sunlight in her cheeky two-piece, which featured swipes of orange, purple, yellow, and black, and came with ties at the shoulders. When she turned around, I got a better look at her thong bottom that flattered her petite frame and highlighted her curves. Janelle’s swimsuit is flirty, it plays into the Summer 2019 trends (candy stripe designs are everywhere you look!), and it’s particularly eye-catching when finished with such dramatic earrings. What’s that? You want to re-create this whole darn ensemble just like I do? Scroll to see all the bikinis I rounded up with very similar details, and you’ll be well on your way.
