When two A-list celebrities own the same thing, you can bet that a legion of fans will soon follow suit. In the case of Jennifer Lopez and Bella Hadid, it’s a white bikini that’s already getting people talking on social media. Both celebs Instagrammed selfies of themselves in Frankies Bikinis Firefly Top ($56) and Firefly Bottoms ($48), and their posts garnered over nine million likes between them (eight million for Lopez and one million for Hadid). Not too shabby.

The swimsuit in question is one of the most classic styles out there: a white triangle bikini. I can’t wait to try the trend when things return to normal later this year. Who wants to join?
