That is of course, unless you're Jennifer Lopez.
The American Idol judge slipped into an eye-watering maroon creation that slashed into a V-neck.

During a holiday in Brazil with her four-year-old twins Max and Esme, and toyboy lover Casper Smart, J Lo embodied the motto 'If you've got it, flaunt it'.
Stepping out in her monokini, the 42-year-old showcased her shapely silhouette while soaking up the sun at the private hotel pool.
And despite taking a dip, she still encompassed her stage look by rocking plenty of bling in the guise of large silver hoop earrings, a chunky chain bracelet and oversized purple-tinted shades.
