I Did It—I Found the Best Black Swimsuits on the Planet

If you're like me, come summer, you feel this unnecessary desire to accumulate as many bold and bright swimsuits as possible, even if you don't really wear that much color. Well, I don't know who needs to hear this, but crazy colors and patterns don't necessarily make a bathing suit cool. And today, I'm going to prove it to you by shopping out 29 of the best black swimsuits on the market that you'll keep in your wardrobe for years to come. 

Some of the suits you'll see shopped out for you here are intended to make a tad more of a statement via glitter and cutouts, while others are the kind of basic black swimsuits that will be able to transcend trends and time. Whether you're more of a bikini or one-piece kind of girl, the shopping selection ahead will definitely lend itself to your preferences. This should go without saying, but just because these swimsuits are simple in nature does not mean they aren't stylish. In fact, most of these are so classic that there's no way you could not look like a million bucks wearing one of them.
