Classy, Timeless Elegance – The Black Swimsuit

You can never go wrong with a classic black swimsuit. They’re elegant, timeless (and slimming!) which makes them even more appealing!

It’s been so long since I’ve written about fashion, so I felt like a summer fashion post was in order today! And what’s more summery, than swimsuits?! I don’t know about you, but they are not my favorite thing to shop for.

However, a black swimsuit is my secret weapon! Trust me, you can’t go wrong with one.

Because no matter what the style, they always look classy. Ever notice that even when they are really sexy, they never look trashy? There is just something inherently elegant about a black swimsuit.

And when you go for black, even an inexpensive suit can look chic.

I know some people love bright colors for summer, especially in swimwear, and I appreciate that, I do. It’s just not for me. I like the simplicity, the clean lines, the elegance of a classic black swimsuit.

And the fact that they are timeless (and slimming!) just makes them that much more appealing!
