Saweetie's Strappy Thongkini Is Hanging On by a Thread

Saweetie is known for her quirky, maximalist sense of fashion, and the 29-year-old rapper continues to deliver on the aesthetic whether she's on the red carpet, performing on stage, or sharing behind-the-scenes snaps on Instagram. Saweetie recently announced the release of "Pretty B*tch Music," her studio album that's set to come out in 2023, and she's promoting it with plenty of eye-catching outfits. And that same head-turning aesthetic also applies to her swimwear.

Saweetie tends to reach for strappy triangle cuts and thongkinis in bright, neon colors, and she has posing in a bikini down to a science. But two-pieces aside, Saweetie's also worn gorgeous one-pieces and maillots for shoots (see: Prada on a boat and Chanel at the beach). She's a fan of swim labels Sel Doval and Haus of Pinklemonaid. She works with stylist Amanda Murray for event dressing, and the noted fashion guru may have a hand in fine-tuning Saweetie's collection of swimwear as well.

The "Best Friend" rapper's latest snap comes courtesy of her Instagram Stories, where she modeled an olive-green string bikini on Tuesday, Feb. 21. With the ultra-thin straps that compose the high-leg bottom and connect the triangle, halter-style bust to the ruching of her thong, it's a skin-revealing look that surely made her followers do a double take. In fact, we'd go so far as to dub Saweetie's suit a "flosskini."
