There’s no denying that bright and colorful swimsuits are a fun and eye-catching look on the beach or by the pool. But the bright hues that are “in” this summer might not necessarily be the same ones everyone is clamoring to wear next year. That’s why it’s so important to have a chic black swimsuit in your collection. Regardless of that year’s trends, a black swimsuit always looks good.

Of course, it also doesn’t hurt that black swimsuits are pretty much universally slimming and flattering. Choose a one-piece that shows off some skin up top but offers coverage around your waist and hips, and you’ll look and feel extra confident all summer long.

If you don’t currently own a slimming black swimsuit, it’s time you invested. Right now, there are a bunch of really great options at Saks that you should check out. While these black swimsuits may be a bit more expensive than what you’re used to, they’re 100% worth the splurge. Not only will they be in style forever, but they’re all so well-made that you really can wear them for years and years to come.
