During a recent conversation, my friend (who wears black exclusively) expressed that it is surprisingly difficult to find a black bikini. Most are embellished with metal, plastic, stone, beading, or jewel accents to add oomph to the simplicity of the design and color. Always up for a challenge, I set out to find black bikinis that rely on fabric and construction to make their designs unique and interesting.
All the two-pieces below are shown in, or available in, black fabric.
The cut, draping, and fabric appliques up the ante on the little black bikini.
Affordable and Chic
Victoria’s Secret offers chic selection for under $40. Look for details such as stitching and side ties to make your black bikini more interesting.
Look to the bottom for details
Two-piece suits tend to emphasize the top but these suits add interesting details to the bikini bottom, such as delicate tassles and sassy ruching.
The construction of the top makes this my favorite by far.

Just for Fun
The design is too clean and the fabric too luxurious to let a teeny, tiny metallic detail (that can easily be taken off with a stitch remover) get in the way of Ondademar‘s hot black two-piece.
The tie knot and the draping detail on the bottoms make Jubilation by L*Space all-around adorable.
Fringe Benefits Dolly Bandeau by L*Space is au courant and balanced with a simple design on the bottom.
