Who’s ready for summer? Yep, us too. And so is Ariana Grande – at least if her latest outfit is anything to go by. The pop superstar’s recent holiday-ready Instagram post captures her in a look that screams summer.
Posing poolside, Ariana embraced the forthcoming season’s skimpiest, sassiest trend: the extreme crop top. Already worn by Bella Hadid and Charli Howard, the style is as much a bra with sleeves as it is a top, and comes courtesy of New York brand Mirror Palais. The star’s “Underwire Polo” in a sheer lemon fabric was just the thing to show off her ribcage tattoo of a branch of leaves, which covers her pre-existing, Harry Potter-inspired “always” ink. When she revealed the leaves that now cover the phrase, Ariana clarified the design was “not a cover up just evolvin’”.
The skimpy top wasn’t the only thing of note. Ariana also held a seriously covetable Prada bag — hey, nothing signals summer like swapping out your usual bag for a brilliant white version — and wore low-slung jeans in a light denim wash.
Ariana also added a playful touch to her usual diamonds by sliding a chunky, Y2K-inspired $55 Bon Bon Whims ring onto her finger, following the likes of Dua Lipa and Mia Regan into the whimsical world of childhood-inspired jewellery. The finishing touch, of course, came from her long-time hairstylist Josh Liu, who was behind her signature, gravity-defying ponytail. That’s our girl!
