Quick: What comes to mind when you think of quintessential summer movies? For me, it has to be Blue Crush. The 2002 film has everything you want in a warm-weather flick: a beautiful Hawaiian backdrop, shirtless love interests, a breakout star (Kate Bosworth in one of her earliest roles), and of course, lots and lots of swimsuits.
It’s been 18 years since the movie was released, but almost all of the bikini trends are still cool today. Bosworth, Michelle Rodriguez, and the other girls all wore different swimsuits to suit their characters’ personal styles. Rodriguez wore fun tiger prints and American flag prints, while Bosworth was more classic in stripes and solid colors.
