The enduring appeal of a black all-in-one is in its ability to take you from beach to bar with minimal effort. Here are a few of our favourites to add to your spring and summer wardrobes.

If psychedelic swimwear and bright and bold bikinis aren’t quite to your taste, then you’ll be thrilled to learn that this spring and summer heralds the return of the classic and perennially chic black swimsuit.

As it happens, it turns out we’re all equally as obsessed with this classic look more than ever. According to the latest research from retailer New Look, Google searches for all thing’s women’s swimwear have spiked by 550% in recent months. So, is it any wonder we’re veering towards simplistic swimwear as we get ready to embrace all this sunshine has to offer?

Indeed, the appeal of a classic black swimsuit is two-fold. Here’s an all-in-one that works equally as well for a day basking in the sun as it does tucked into a slip skirt or big and baggy jeans and slightly heeled mules for happy hour cocktails. And you needn’t look far for a timeless one-piece. 

Whether you’re at the lido in London or lounging poolside in Portugal, our edit of the best black swimsuits out there will take you from beach to bar with minimal effort. You’re welcome…
