Classic Black

Some may think of black as boring, but in terms of swimwear, black is always classic and is returning to the fashion scene as one of the 2011 swimwear trends. Black swimwear remains an unwavering choice due to its miraculous ability to slim the body, giving anyone an added boost of confidence when putting on this otherwise often dreaded garment.

Another fantastic reason to choose black is its versatility; you can try out many of the other popular swimwear trends in black and combine the two trends together. Try a black bandeau top, or a one-piece black suit with strategically placed slimming cutouts. Add some femininity to your black beachwear with a ruffle along the top of a bathing suit top or around the hip area to creative more feminine curves. Channel Audrey Hepburn in Carmen Marc Valvo’s simple and timeless black one-piece suit, paired with classic sunglasses and a neat up-do, or elicit your inner Madonna with Marc Jacob’s crocheted black bikini. Marysia featured a feminine, black one-piece with flirty ribbons accenting the sides and top, the perfect suit for spending a lazy summer afternoon under your beach umbrella.
