Nearly naked swimwear is the latest trend to hit - and if social media is anything to go by, the look is set to be massive this summer. Flesh-coloured swimmers have recently been spotted on Instagram being worn by Australian bikini bloggers Tash Oakley and Devin Brugman and model Gemma Ward. The bathers are often cut in in a demure style, however, the fact they're close in colour to a person's skin tone gives them a 'nearly nude' appearance.

NOW that summer has well and truly come to an end, you can find us delving head-first into our chunky knitwear collection and counting down the days until Christmas. But for the celebrities and influencers who live on our social media feeds, it's a very different story - and one that involves a daring new swimwear trend despite the fact we're on the brink of deepest darkest winter here in the UK. Introducing the "Naked" bikini trend - where A-Listers, models and fashion bloggers have been donning flesh-coloured swimwear that leaves VERY little to the imagination. From Kim Kardashian and Bella Hadid to reality stars Vicky Pattison and Chloe Sims , this extreme style works best with minuscule strappy designs or bandeau bras. You know, to really create the illusion of nakedness. Although flesh-flashing bikinis were all the rage this summer , this new phenomenon takes matters one step further in how it gives the wearer a "nearly nude" look. In other words, you'd definitely do a double take if you came across a sunbather rocking one of these outrageous styles on the beach. Giving us a blueprint in how to pull off this divisive trend, supermodel Bella Hadid colour-matched her skin tone with her skimpy design as she kicked on a private yacht.

Tammy's collaboration with Minimale Animale leaves very little to the imagination and those who wear it should err on the side of caution. If capturing the perfect photo for the 'gram is at the forefront of every occasion, the new 'naked bikini' might be a way to up your likes. Definitely not for the faint-hearted, the swimwear piece will certainly allow you to make an impression on the beach or by the pool. And for those who absolutely hate the idea of tan marks but aren't willing to venture to a naked beach to perfect your glow, this could also be right up your street. The bold swimwear company Minimale Animale launched its 'naked bikini' last year with the half Australian and half Trinidadian model Tammy Hembrow and the result was some very tiny swimming costumes. While some people love the bold look, others have been left wondering if you can actually call it a bikini.
