No More Beijing Bikini.
The Beijing Bikini is an awkward Chinese men’s fashion trend
What is a “Beijing bikini”? Basically, men roll up their shirts when they get really hot. There are mainly working-class people who do this. It has been going on for decades, but to a westerner, it looks weird. The funniest examples of this Chinese fashion trend are featured in the following gallery.
During the summer, Beijing, China can get very hot, with temperatures regularly exceeding 30°C.
When the heat is high, what is the best way for people to cope?
Perhaps a nice, cold beverage? People even carry portable fans that can be plugged into their phones. In addition, umbrellas are commonly seen as a way to shade oneself from the blistering rays of the sun.
However, what is the best and simplest way for hot, sweaty men in China to cool down? Simply roll their shirts up and expose their bellies. This is often called the ‘Beijing Bikini’.
There are some people who remove their shirts altogether and walk around half-naked.
You also deserve some fresh air for your belly.
