A Timeless Must-Have: The Little Black Swimsuit
Over the past 100 years, swimwear trends have evolved as much as women have. From the sleek one-pieces worn by Hollywood starlets in the 1930s to the high-cut suits of the 1980s (think Baywatch), swimsuits trends have included every cut, color, and silhouette imaginable. Since the creation of the modern-day bikini in 1946, swimwear has never been the same, but while the fits and patterns may have changed over the decades, there’s one thing that has not – the little black swimsuit always has been and will always be super chic.
Women Are Emboldened (and we’re changing all the rules)
Whether you’re lounging by the pool in your backyard oasis, catching some sun on a crowded beach, or sipping cocktails in an exclusive poolside cabana at a 5-star resort, every woman wants to feel confident when she’s wearing a scant amount of clothes. Sure, the 1950s may have been all about high-waisted bikini bottoms and halter tops. The late ‘60s and ‘70s basically required a skimpy triangle suit. In the 2000s, everyone on the beach was wearing a super low rise bottoms that called for a full bikini wax.
It now looks like we came full circle: so many styles are on trend, and women wear what makes them feel confident, and wear a variety of styles everywhere.
The Suit You Want Is Out There (you just have to know where to look)
From sexy one-piece swimsuits to updated versions of the classic triangle bikini, it’s all about finding the suit that fits you. And by fit we mean fit your body AND fit your sense of style. Looking for something a little bit retro? No problem. Want something that shows how hard you’ve been working out at the gym? Check. No matter what silhouette and cut you prefer, if you stick to basic black, you’re guaranteed to look sleek and chic.
