Demi Lovato just announced her upcoming single, "Cool For The Summer," accompanied by the single art and—WOWOWOW—she looks amazing. Her hair is perfectly slicked back, she's glowing, and she looks hella cool—like, attitude-wise.
The only thing actually preventing her from, um, actually being cool—like, temperature-wise—for the summer? That fur coat she's wearing.
Then, it hit me—Demi isn't the first to take this unexpected look to the sandy, wet, and hot outdoors—Rihanna, Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, and Rihanna have all done it recently, too.
Rihanna wore a mint Alexandre Vauthier stole while chilling in an above-ground pool for V Magazine. Her heavy teal eyeliner and blonde wig combine for an outfit that is definitely not meant to get wet—fortunately, it looks like she's doing an A+ job of keeping things dry. The same cannot be said of Beyonce and Nicki Minaj.
In the video for "Feeling Myself," Bey and Nicki wear coordinted pink fur coats while sitting in a kiddie pool. In an interview with Marie Claire, stylist Marni Senofonte revealed that the jackets were the only thing Bey insisted on having in the video—good thing they're in a kiddie pool, they would be impossible to swim in.
While beach and pool furs may look cool—like, really, really cool—we suggest leaving them to the professionals. Can you imagine trying to get sand out of a furry jacket? No thanks. If you want to cop one of ya faves' water-appropriate looks, though, we know of a denim bikini that might be up your alley.
