Rather than showcasing fall fashion staples such as leather pants, fur coats, and plaid shirts, fall fashion magazine covers seem to be hanging on to summer for dear life. First Lauren Conrad rocked a tiny romper on Cosmopolitan's October issue, then Taylor Swift wore a bathing suit and tunic on the cover of November's GQ. Now, Lea Michele covers the November issue of Women's Health in a monochrome bikini and sweatpants, perhaps reminding us that good swimwear is essential all year long.
The 29-year-old flaunted her killer physique in a pair of low-hanging sweats and not a whole lot else. She rocked a mostly white bandeau bikini top with black trimmings and asymmetrical black straps. The pretty piece, which also features a center cutout, was designed by a brand called Araks, and it can be yours for a whopping $220.
Sure, the days of sunbathing and poolside lounging may be long gone, but what about mid-winter beach vacations? And there is, of course, still resort season. In other words, there is never really a wrong time to purchase a gorgeous piece of swimwear.
The Scream Queens actress sported natural-like blown out locks and a barely there makeup look that is totally gorgeous.
Check out the stunning cover.
