You Can’t Go Wrong With Your Little Black Swimsuit

With the Holy Week long weekend coming up, no doubt many of you ladies will be booking that much needed trip out of the city. Favorite destination? The beach, of course! This is the perfect season to hit the waves; the summer temperature is not yet at its burning point, the nights relatively cooler, and the mild rainy showers sparse. If you’re scrambling to hunt for a new swimsuit, here’s some good news: The universal color for a chic dress also applies to swimsuits.

Black makes for a sexy, mysterious and, most importantly, slimming color. Whatever the cut of your swimwear, be it one-piece, bikini or halter, the effect of black is the same. In fact, we’d go so far as to say that every girl needs that little black swimsuit, just as she needs that little black dress.
