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 25 of the best black swimsuits on the market that are not boring beyond belief.
Some of the suits you'll see shopped out for you here are intended to make more of a statement, while others are simple in nature but have some sort of eye-catching twist. Take the bikini in the opening image, for example. The addition of white zigzag trim and a mini daisy instantly made this basic underwire bikini top something worth Instagramming.
Now, on the flip side, if you solely buy black swimwear, maybe these interesting options will help to liven up your current assortment of bikinis and one-pieces so that you never get bored when you look in your swimsuit drawer.
