Did somebody say Baywatch? The high-leg swimsuit needs no introducing after it made waves in the 80s – all thanks to Pamela Anderson.

Back to basics
Okay – there’s nothing new about a strappy bikini, but sometimes old is gold, right?
The strappy swimwear trend is one of the most timeless of them all. Made up of triangle bikini tops and tie-side bottoms, the clean lines and simple silhouettes are not to be downplayed. They give an effortlessly cool vibe (even if you did spend an hour adjusting and perfecting in the mirror prior to your poolside appearance!).
If you want to experiment with this swimwear trend, why not jazz up this timeless trend with a funky beach bag and cover up combo?
