As we move closer to summer (and closer to actually having a summer this year), it’s really only a matter of time until we see a bunch of new swimsuit trends burst on the scene. While I’m sure I’ll be adding a few new styles to my own closet (and therefore ditching a few older ones), there’s one particular swimsuit I own that I won’t be purging from my closet this year, next year, or hopefully for many years to come.

It’s a classic one-piece, The C suit from Candice Swanepoel’s Tropic of C line, in a bright cherry red hue that, to me, feels especially timeless. Maybe Baywatch was onto something after all, because the more I reach for this suit, the more I’m convinced that red is one of the most classic colors you can go for in swimwear. It’s not just once-pieces like mine but string bikinis and high-waisted numbers, too, that possess that buy now-wear forever quality. To prove it, I’m highlighting the best red swimsuits in the market right now. Keep scrolling to shop them all.
