Don't get us wrong—retro does not mean frumpy. Modern fabrics and punchy prints keep these suits grounded in the present. Lisa Marie Fernandez has scuba-inspired neoprene two-piece swimsuits that perfectly tow the line between Bond girl and modern bombshell, while Topshop and Stella Jean have an array of suits that put a fresh spin on tikichic. (It's a new word, just go with it.)
Another bonus to the high-waisted bikini is its figure-flattering cut. Ruching, cutouts, zippers and well-placed elastic ensure there's a style that will work for your body type. While we may be a few weeks away from bikini season, now's the time to find your perfect swimsuit...and start planning beach trips around it. That's a thing, right?
