I enjoy a colourful swimsuit, but one thing is for sure – every summer, I invest in at least one of the many black swimsuits that exist in this world, guaranteed to make you feel like hot shit even if you ate four burritos and also forgot to fake tan.

Black swimsuits are just a must-have, in my opinion. It doesn’t have to be your go to but it does often BECOME the go-to, and it’s not really about being ~slimming~ and all that bullshit, it’s really just that black is the eternally chic colour, it works back with everyone’s style (unless you are like, say, Katy Perry and only wear brights) and it works whether you’re a pale angel or a tanned princess.

I’ve done a round up of cute black swimsuits around the traps at the moment, mainly because I felt like shopping lol. Now you can shop too! Everyone wins!
