Stacey delighted fans with her bikini throwback

While Stacey didn't tag where her bikini was from, it looks very similar to Marysia's 'Antibes Scalloped Bikini'. Framed by the brand's signature scalloped edges, the top has light boning to keep it securely in place, while the briefs are "made from waffled stretch-crepe that feels soft against the skin and sits flatteringly low on your hips".

Stacey's throwback comes after she praised her new grown-out fringe after finally having one cut in before the start of lockdown 3.0.

Sharing a snap on her Stories, Stacey sported a sweeping fringe that perfectly complemented her fiery red hair – and fans seemed to agree.

"Yes to the bangs sis!" wrote one. "Look at you! All grown up cute and what not! Loving the new cut," said another. "Love it!" added a third. "Gorge," gushed a fourth.

Stacey revealed her grown-out fringe in January

When Stacey first revealed her hair makeover in December, it looked very different! "The fringe (ish) is back," she captioned a clip on Instagram. In the caption, she added: "I’ve been talking about this since 2018 btw."

The video showed her hair tied back into a low bun while the front strands of her hair were much shorter and more uniform than the sweeping fringe she is rocking now.
