I’m a firm believer that every woman should have a LBS in their closet — Little Black Swimsuit. Black swimsuits will never go out of style and look good on everyone. As a pale girl myself, I tend to wear darker swimsuit shades (like black, obviously) early on in the summer before I have a tan, and then swap out for a brighter or bolder shade later in the season. Just me?
Black swimsuits don’t have to be boring, either. If a plain Jane, no-frills swimsuit isn’t your style, try one with ruffles, buckles, bows, fringe, cut-outs, or crocheted details. They’re so easy to dress up, too — black matches with just about every color out there, so you can go wild with colorful accessories like earrings, a hair scarf, flip flops, and a beach bag.
Here are the best women’s black swimsuits of 2021.
