I'll Be Ready: Baywatch's Red Swimsuit Trend Is Back

Baywatch is back, and you know what that means. Lots of David Hasselhoff on TV and a barrage of bright red spandex coming to a beach/pool/picnic near you. It just so happens that this sequel movie (appropriately called Baywatch and starring, er, Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron—what?) has aligned with fashion's current penchant for the scarlet bathing suit. Take a quick scan of the e-commerce landscape and you'll find there's a red suit to suit all—whether you're after a classic, high-cut, Pamela Anderson–worthy Baywatch-inspired swimsuit or in search of a more elegant, off-the-shoulder silhouette.

If you want to go full 1980s, this is the one.

This will be such a comfortable style to lounge around the pool in.

Full coverage can still be very alluring.

Karla Colletto's swimsuits are pricey, but the fabric technology and cuts result in something so flattering.

Talk about a detail du jour—there are lace-up swimsuits everywhere at the moment.

Norma is the A-list go-to for that ultra-high leg cut.

Not great for tan lines but very great for making a splash.

This is a cute new label to reach the UK.
