11 black one-piece swimmers that can easily double as a bodysuit

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.

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

According to shopping platform Lyst, which analyses the behaviour of 8 million shoppers, searches for minimal black swimsuits have spiked by 306% since the start of May. Is it any wonder we’re veering towards simplistic swimwear as we slowly emerge from our isolation hovels? 

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; London label Hunza G, the purveyor of the seersucker swimsuit loved by the fashion cognoscenti, has them in spades, as does Jade Swim, whose one-shoulder and strapless iterations are among the best in the swimwear sphere.

Whether you’re at the lido in London or lounging poolside in Portugal, these black swimsuits will take you from beach to bar with minimal effort. You’re welcome.
