Nothing but a prayer and loads of pancake makeup could fix tan lines left by any of these swimsuits, but a pale patch in any other case? Surprisingly chic, given its associations with leisure and having enough vacation days to go on holiday. But don't take our word for it—come to your own conclusion using the following pics.
A very good place to start: strapless necklines, which can compete with tan lines in the shape of a halter top.
Something HP's makeup artist might have considered, because straps on straps can be a lot of look.
While somehow, Zoe Saldana's lines come out looking like highlighter? Some girls have all the luck.
Another rule of thumb: The more complicated the neckline, the less visible the tan line should be.
But I kind of like this?
This, not as much.
Generally, the thinner the line, the chicer/more jewelry-like it appears.
Her topless Lui magazine cover got her kicked off Insta, but RiRi still practices what she preaches editorially IRL.
Ah, the thin back-tie, probably the most coveted tan line of all.
Slightly wider, but just as pretty.
TBH, do not mind a pale boob moment, even if it isn't very European.
Well, that's one way to show off a tan line.
