This Anti–Love Island Swimsuit Is the Only One I Wear for Summer

When it comes to spring/summer trends, there are so many I want to try out this year. Usually, I tend to stick to pieces I know I’ll wear on repeat, but this year, I’m being tempted by cutouts, bright shades of tangerine and pink and even the revival of miniskirts and denim. There is one area of my summer wardrobe I try not to shake up, though, and this is the swimwear section. We all know a great-fitting swimsuit can be hard to come by. So when it comes to a new one-piece, I stick to shapes, brands and colours I know suit me. And often, this heads in the direction of one colour: black.

I recently wore this Alexandra Miro swimsuit in Ibiza, and it fits like a dream. You can remove the belt, it has hidden support that feels like a crop top underneath, and it doesn't squash your boobs like some strapless swimsuits do. 

Like the LBD, black swimsuits never fail to make an impact, yet they stay classic all at the same time. Of course, the hue is also known to be flattering, and now that I spend a little more on well-fitting, good-quality swimsuits, I like to buy them in a shade I know I’ll never tire of. Also, I like to know they won’t go see-through as soon as I take a dip in a pool. So to make swimwear shopping stress-free, these are the best black swimsuits that will never let you down. 

Shop Black Swimsuits

This is the exact one I have, and it's so good I now want it in pink.

I love this sleek halterneck style and would no doubt also wear it as a top. 

Textured swimwear always looks premium. 

So chic, and it's made from recycled materials. 

The cut of this swimsuit is so flattering, and it has hidden tummy control.

This off-the-shoulder neckline calls for layered necklaces.

I would wear this one with denim shorts and sliders.
