Just as the little black dress is a closet staple, so is the little black bikini. The LBB works with pretty much any cover up you have, and looks good whether you’re lounging by the pool, doing yoga on the beach, or exploring hidden lagoons. Just like our beloved LBD, the LBB is an easy way to look sophisticated and low-key sexy.
While looking for our black bikini inspirations, we turned to the movies. Here are our top 5 favorites:
Kate Hudson in Fool’s Gold
This basic black bikini is a testament to how beautifully black contrasts with white sand beaches and bright blue waters.
Demi Moore in Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle
There’s something very femme fatale about a black bikini, especially when it’s a slinky high-cut number, like this one.
Angelina Jolie in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider
With its thick straps, secure cut, and overall utilitarian feel, this black bikini was made for kicking ass.
Maribel Verdu in Y Tu Mama También
A simple black bikini like this is worn best with an air of mystery and a hint of existential angst.
Deborah Kerr in From Here to Eternity
Okay, so this one is not exactly a bikini, but this belted halter swimsuit echoes class through the decades.
Whether you want to awaken your inner bad-ass ala Angelina Jolie, channel effortless class like Deborah Kerr, or just find that one swimsuit you can wear anywhere, with anything, the black bikini is a must-have for your beach wardrobe.
