I know it's still winter, but it's never too early to shop for swimsuits. Whether you have a tropical vacation coming up or you just want to prepare for the warm, sunny beach days this summer, a flattering bathing suit is a must-have in everyone's closet. Similar, to a little black dress, a black one-piece, or monokini, is a fashion staple that looks great on anyone! "A black one-piece is a tried-and-true option for all shapes and sizes because it’s truly timeless," says Michelle Copelman, the design director at Solid & Striped. Here are a few of our favorite black one-piece styles.
