There’s nothing more glamorous than the simplicity of black and white. An old photograph, checkerboard tiles, a couple on their wedding day – the same goes for swimwear this summer. Forget messy beach hair, mismatched bikinis and layers of bohemian-style jewellery – this trend is all about using minimalism to create a high impact look. Think Kate Moss on a super yacht in Saint Tropez wearing a monochrome one-piece, slicked-back hair, oversized sunglasses and thick chain necklace. If ever there was a uniform for poolside lounging, this is it.
The black and white swimwear trend doesn’t stop at solid shades. Graphic prints add a touch of attitude to clean lines and streamlined silhouettes. And unlike some of the bright and colourful trends we’re seeing this summer, black and white suits just about everyone.
