Basic styles are basic for a reason: At the end of the day, they’re a tried-and-true pick. So where we may have left our itty bitty string bikinis back on the pool party decks of Miami in 2006, maybe it’s time we let them back into our lives. And it’s not just us.

Between pushing the boundaries for just how much of your hoo-ha is actually covered by a flimsy pair of bottoms to pairing string bikini bottoms with more experimental tops, swimsuit designers are doling out the love, too.
