Minimal Black Swimsuit

Minimal Black Swimsuit

In my last Minimal Closet post, I shared some of my favorite black sandals, this time I’m talking about the little black swimsuit. You’ll notice that most of these swimsuits aren’t so little at all. I’m not sure why I gravitate towards one-piece suits, but I’ll blame it on my age or having kids. The truth is that I just feel more comfortable in them and don’t need to worry about slips when diving in the water or trying to juggle two kids and all of the beach things that go along with them. The suits I chose are all very versatile, and I love how you can pair most of them with a bottom to complete an outfit when packing light.

I chose all of these for different reasons, but really love the reversible aspect to the first and second suits. I also really love how easily the third suit can be paired with bottoms to travel a little lighter. My favorite is the Orlebar Brown swimsuit because it is simple, timeless, and a flattering cut. I included the Eres Bikini because I love it’s clean lines.

  6. Great roundup of suits! I love the Marysia suit – such a pretty neckline. I have not had much luck finding a one-piece that I love. I’m thinking I need to try this one!

    1. I’m super picky with them too. I’m dying to get a Marysia one for an upcoming trip.

  7. These are gorgeous! Love the scalloped one and the second to last. I’m finally admitting I’m old and it’s time to consider a one-piece. Glad there are so many pretty ones on the market right now!

  8. I really love that Marysia but can’t seem to get the link to work, where did that one come from?

    1. I just double checked and both links seemed to work for me. I think you can find both suits here at ShopBop: http://bit.ly/1Gz3XCe
