Gabrielle Union Has Officially Convinced Us to Invest in the "Bikini Skirt"

Our new obsession? Swimsuits with a little something extra — yes, like a sarong skirt that comes in the same print or a button-down splashed with the same stripes. We weren't surprised to find that bikini connoisseur Gabrielle Union is on board with the trend this year too. The 47-year-old mom to the adorable Kaavia and wife to Dwyane Wade shared some shots of herself enjoying family time in an olive Solid & Striped swim set that became so much more than a bikini when she exited the pool and spent the night taking photos in the matching maxi skirt.

Even though Gabrielle's exact style is no longer available, Solid & Striped continues to churn out these adorable little sets in new colorways because, naturally, they're pretty darn versatile and are bound to get a lot of wear. The bonus? If your evening agenda is relatively casual and you'll probably just be kicking it poolside (like Gab and her friends), you won't even need to pack a second outfit. Scroll down for more shots of Gabrielle, who accessorized her look with gold hoops, then shop some of our favorite iterations of this look if you're into the effortlessness like we are.
