If you thought swimwear was immune to fashion's current obsession with the '80s and the '90s, then you were wrong: High-cut suits are back, and they're better than ever. The hip-bone-baring style, which originated with designers like Norma Kamali, has been ushered into the digital era by brands like Solid & Striped and Onia, flooding our feeds with extra-long legs from influencers, models and random beach-goers alike.

It's a trend that's been around for a few summers, but it doesn't appear to be going anywhere. What started as a few slightly shocking iterations of the "Baywatch"-inspired one-piece, has become a standard silhouette for most swim brands. Now, you can find both one- and two-piece options in an array of colors — think neon brights — and playful prints — think florals and polka dots — with varying degrees of hip exposure. Ahead, we've rounded up some of our favorite takes on this retro summer must-have.
