Lupita Nyong’o’s rainbow bikini might be our favorite swimsuit of the summer

Considering she just wrapped up on the set of Black Panther, we understand why Lupita Nyong’o took her crocheted bikini and headed out on a Mexican vacation — she needed it. Playing Nakia (aka Malice) in the film, Nyong’o is kicking ass, taking names, and flinging herself around in some extremely physical fight scenes, so it’s no wonder she’s taking a break to catch some rays and eat dragon fruit.

But back to that bikini for a second. The crocheted, high-neck, halter-style top is from fashion label Shoshanna, and retails for $138. You can also get the matching bottoms for $125.

Nyong’o shared this photo of herself on Instagram Tuesday, and we’ve been coveting her bikini ever since.

The full set, in case you were wondering, looks like this:


You can shop it on Shoshanna’s website here, for $263.

We may be calling it early, but this is our favorite swimsuit of the summer. If you’re not quite working with a Marvel superhero budget, no worries: We did some shopping for you and found other crocheted bikini options we think you’ll love. Keep scrolling!
