June 6, 2014

Thought black swimsuits were boring? Think again. Nothing’s sexier or more chic than jet-colored bikini separates or a sultry strappy monokini. Sure, it’s fun to wear bright colors and patterns to a pool party or at the beach, but a black swimsuit will add some mystery to your waterside swagger.

And lucky for you, we rounded up some of the flyest black swimwear on the ‘net. Click through the slideshow to see for yourself, and happy shopping!
