Olivia Wilde's Baywatch Swimsuit Is Destined to Sell Out

The difference between classic and iconic is all about who wears the look. Case in point? The red one-piece swimsuits of Baywatch, the popular '90s TV show that saw Pamela Anderson patrolling the beaches of Los Angeles County as a lifeguard. And, while Anderson certainly popularized the look, the truth is that lifeguards have been wearing red one-piece suits for ages. Then, perhaps this suit is both classic and iconic.

Olivia Wilde seems to think so. The A-lister shared a photo of herself hanging poolside wearing the Anderson-approved cheeky swimsuit by Frankie's Bikinis paired with cut-off denim shorts, extreme cat-eye sunglasses, and hopefully plenty of SPF. How's that for a red, white, and blue Independence Day look?  

Whether you're looking to swim laps, catch some rays, or even save lives (thank you, summer lifeguards), the classic red swimsuit is instantly recognizable as a summer staple. Ahead, shop 10 red swimsuits under $100 to capture the Baywatch vibes yourself.
