Blake Lively Just Wore the Swimsuit Trend That's Never Going Away

As much as it pains me to admit it, I don't have any spring break plans this year—it's quite a bit harder to schedule a getaway in adulthood than it was in my college days. Blake Lively, however, is living her best vacation life right now. And thankfully, I can live vicariously through her Instagram photos, which racked up nearly 5 million likes in less than 48 hours. 

In one photo, Lively posed poolside wearing an ab-baring cutout swimsuit by Solid & Striped. Her exact swimsuit is sold out in nearly all sizes, but I found an excellent $80 alternative that's fully stocked in a range of sizes (XXS to 4X) and even has special sizes for those with long torsos. Genius. The cutout trend shows no signs of slowing down, so it's a smart purchase in my mind. Scroll down to shop for similar black one-piece swimsuits.
