Somewhere in the suburbs of Minneapolis right now, Sisqó’s ears must be burning because clearly his summertime anthem that helped usher us all into the new millennium is having a massive revival as celebs everywhere are celebrating spring by “shakin that thang like who’s the ish” and breaking out the hottest new trend in swimwear — a thong bikini.

And the latest star to test out this look is Ariel Winter while on vacation in the Bahamas with the rest of the
Modern Family
cast and her boyfriend. The actress strolled the beach on Tuesday, doing her best
Baywatch
and Victoria’s Secret impressions, posing and doing high kicks all while wearing a white string bikini with some very ornate detailing. The swimsuit features a gold chain halter strap as well as cascading gold chain detailing around the waist and a ruched thong back.

But Ariel is only the most recent famous lady to engage in this rear-baring style statement. Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve seen everyone from Bella Thorne to Bella Hadid showing off their backside all in the name of being a swimwear fashion plate, and who could forget Kourtney Kardashian‘s leopard-print belfie from earlier this week.

But really all these ladies owe every inch of fabric (or lack thereof) covering their posterior to the OG swim thong master, Lea Michele who was so ahead of her time with this look, she wore it to ring in 2015. So as summer draws ever nearer, just remember, if “you like to dance at the hip hop spots and you cruise to crews to connect the dots,” or even if you’re just, “‘Livin La Vida Loca,” a thong is probably exactly what the doctor ordered.

What do you think of this new spring trend? Who do you think pulls it off best?
