If your summer '16 goals were to look like an early '00s pop star while sticking to a budget, then you're in luck. According to Cosmo, Britney Spears just bought a $16 bathing suit that seems to be plucked right out of the era. Finally you'll be able to make your middle school self happy while looking fierce at the same time. It doesn't get much better than this, guys!
It takes the right person to bring back a throwback style, and this is the most perfect instance that I can possibly think of. Proving that she's still got her pop star fashion sense, Spears posted a photo of herself to Instagram wearing a bright green one cutout one-piece. Between the electric color and the amount of skin being shown, this swimsuit look like it came right from the early '00s, aka Spears' heyday.
Regardless of where the trend came from, Spears seemed super excited to snag the look. Whether that was because she looked so great or because it was on sale, the world may never know. "Bought three new swimsuits today," the singer captioned the photo. "This one is my favorite!" I can see why she would say that.
Seriously, if this one is her favorite out of the three, I can't wait to see the rest of them. The best part is that you can recreat her style without breaking the bank. Here are some affordable finds that will have you feeling like a pop star just in time for summer.
