It’s already summer in Australia, which means that the new swimwear trends are about to start trickling in.

One Aussie brand Heartland & Baulch is even trying to make sideways bikinis happen.

Similar to last summer’s upside bikini trend, the look is to take your string bikini and flip it around. And we’re not going to lie, we kind of love the look on this pretty swimwear label’s page:

The Daily Mail points out that the brand has featured models on their Instagram feed wearing this distinct styling trick, and now other influencers like American models Sofia Jamora and Sierra Skye, as well as UK influencer Hollie Parsons have been wearing them as well.
