Everyone is stepping out of dark winter hues and into sunny summer colors, the most popular of which is white. Wearing white on white, or cream on ecru, or eggshell on milk—whatever variation of the combo—has been increasing in popularity. It’s a timeless trend that returns every time the sun starts to consistently come out, and SI Swimsuit models love embracing it.

Alexis Ren went on vacation with family last week and summed her trip up in a photo dump where she donned two versions of the outfit, and absolutely slayed both of them.

“Love it here more than anything,” she captioned the April 10 carousel she shared with her 17.4 million Instagram followers.

In the cover photo, Ren wore a white cropped tube tank featuring a strappy open back paired with cream linen pants that she hung low on her waist. She posed in a kitchen and sipped on a glass of wine.

In the third snap, the 26-year-old sported a soft white off the shoulder long sleeve top and a matching maxi skirt. She stood in front of a gorgeous backdrop including greenery, a lake, mountains and blue skies.

Fellow SI Swimsuit model Kelsey Merritt stepped out in a cream-and-white combo this past weekend. She donned a chunky sweater and tiered maxi skirt as her Easter getup. Merritt paired the look with black heels, sunglasses and a small purse to add contrast.

2020 SI Swimsuit Issue cover star Olivia Culpo rocked a stunning and daring one-piece swimsuit last week while on vacation with her new fiancé, Christian McCaffrey.

The strappy swimsuit from Cult Gaia featured a major plunging neckline with one middle string holding it together, revealing her toned stomach in multiple cut-outs.

She captioned the post, which featured her toy goldendoodle, Oliver Sprinkles, with a simple white heart.
