Strappy swimsuits gave the classic bikini a modern update. 

Floral bathing suits made way for beach wear in neutral shades. 

Cutouts, ruffles, puffed sleeves and belted waistlines are now part of swimwear.

Now, the upside down bikini -- it's been around since 2018 when Italian model Valentina Fradegrada came up with the bizarre idea -- is winning over the celebrity world once again. 

Supermodels Kendall Jenner, Emily Ratajkowski and Elsa Hosk have all been spotted wearing it.
