We love her transparency. On 17 July, Julia Fox was photographed swimming in a completely sheer swimsuit during a beach day in New York. Her barely there Pretty Little Thing one-piece featured dramatic side and stomach cutouts, white see-through material, and a thongkini-style fit. In the water, Fox accessorised the bold look with oversize tinted sunglasses and a shell necklace before slipping on a pair of mesh tracksuit bottoms, white kitten-heel sandals, and a camouflage baseball hat to grab an ice cream cone.
Icon behaviour aside, Fox's outfit did raise a few logistical questions: Did the strapless suit hold up against the waves? How did anything stay covered after the one-piece got wet? And perhaps most importantly . . . kitten heels in the sand? Clearly not everything is meant for us to understand.
See-through swimwear has been picking up steam this summer, with celebrities rocking the trend in a variety of unexpected ways. Pink made headlines by vacationing in an Adriana Degreas "bananakini" featuring a transparent top with strategically placed bananas covering her chest. Kim Kardashian also got the sheer memo by posing on the beach in a similarly see-through Skims set.
As our resident queen of extreme fashion, Fox has stepped out in everything from a corset made of neckties to an outfit lined with unwrapped condoms. While a sheer swimsuit is not entirely out of the ordinary, it's certainly among the more revealing looks in her repertoire. Read on to see how Fox made the beach her runway in some of her boldest swimwear yet.
