The Jersey Swimsuit Phenomenon

Beyonce and Nicki Minaj recently came out on Tidal with the music video for the song, Feeling Myself.

In the song we saw many fashion statements including a Chicago Bulls jersey swimsuit with Derrick Rose number (1) on the front.

Thanks to Beyonce, this jersey swimsuit has now set a trend blaze! On social media, people have posted pictures with their own version of the infamous jersey swimsuit.

Others are even getting some good laughs at the trend.

Now, before you bring out the sewing machine or purchase a rendition of your own, ask yourself this question; is it worth it? Will this trend even last long?

I think not. This item is a basketball jersey dress reincarnated into a swimsuit. Just like the jersey dress hiding in the dark corner of your drawers (unless you burned it), so will the jersey swimsuit reside in the future, young grasshopper.

However, what’s the fun in trends if you’re not going to test the waters? Have some fun! Buy your own jersey swimsuit, take those pictures on Instagram, and use the jersey swimsuit as a reminder of Beyonce’s influence on the world.

Beyonce’s swimsuit was custom made by Timothy White. However, Love Jones Reconstruct has similar versions that are available for purchase.

Viva la fashion!
