Beauties, it’s August. That means warm humid days, summer Fridays, and long weekends. Whether you are lounging by the lake, enjoying a beach vacation, or just laying out in your backyard, the one item that will never go out of style is the black swimsuit.

It’s not your average, “make me look skinner” swimsuit, but it does the trick! A lot of celebrities are rocking the classic bathing suit, too.

We spotted Kevin Hart‘s new wife, Eniko Parrish, enjoying their honeymoon, wearing an all black one-piece swimsuit. It’s truly the definition of sexy, yet subtle.

A high-cut black bathing suit is needed in every woman’s wardrobe. This go-to gem will have you looking sleek and sexy on the beach. The high-cut nature of the piece automatically elongates your legs, as shown below on Kylie Jenner:

Interested in a high-thigh black swimsuit? I have three options for you!


Think you can’t be plus-size and wear a high-waisted style? You’re wrong! If you are a little insecure, go for a mesh covering, like this Swimsuits For All, Limited Edition, Ashley Graham collection.

Feel like baring more? Opt for this high-cut, Boohoo leg strap one piece:


Norma Kamali makes beautiful swimsuits, and even a basic black suit, which has a nice architecture and cut. Try out this bandeau-top style with the high-cut thigh for a sexy and chic look.
