A classic black swimsuit should be a staple in your beach wardrobe.

This basic colour works equally well in a one-piece and a bikini. The best part about choosing a black bikini is that it can be easily mixed and matched with other black bikini styles, giving you endless options for the summer!

To keep the colour from fading, make sure you rinse it in cold water after swimming to remove any salt or chlorine. Pay extra attention to seams as sunscreen can build up on the material here and cause discoloration. Use a specialty swimsuit rinse on any stubborn spots.

Pair your swimsuit with mirrored sunglasses and a wide brim hat for French-Riviera levels of chic.
