Having simple style is a great thing. It allows you to get less distracted by frivolous trends and focus more on quality basics. As someone who is still learning how to appreciate the basics in my wardrobe, one area that I certainly tend to neglect is investing in swimsuits that will still be relevant for more than one season. Buying timeless and simple swimsuits is just wise and in an effort to grow in that area of sartorial wisdom, I shopped out the best 23 simple swimsuits for not only myself but for those of you who have that more minimalistic style that I am currently craving.
Whether you are more of a one-piece or bikini person yourself, I have included styles aplenty for you here. Yes, you will see a large handful of neutral hues like blacks and whites, but there are also some surprises as well, because if you ask me, having simple style doesn't mean your attire has to be boring or lack color, and the swimsuits ahead will prove exactly that.
