There are certain swimsuits that are truly timeless. The black string bikini is definitely one of them. This swimsuit (I believe this is Kaley Cuoco – so gorgeous in this stunning photograph) graced the web as a popular free wallpaper for a reason. The model looks amazing and the style is totally timeless.

Timeless black swimsuit

You don’t need a particular brand name designer to get this look. You’ll find a simple black string bikini at most bikini stores because it is a classic style. If you are trying to get that worn by celebrity look, going all black is tried and true. If you are slender, then any black swimsuit will do. You can get a similar look with a simple black maillot one piece. A black one piece will give you more coverage and still give you that timeless look if you want it.

Let a little bit of skin peek through

A tiny black bikini is going to look incredible on a beautiful woman, but be warned that too much black material covering the entire body takes away from the light and breezy summer feeling. If you are overweight, then there are certain tips to follow when it comes to all black. For a heavier figure you want a black swimsuit that has some cut-outs on it, or perhaps a lower cut back that shows your back, or maybe a good deep V-neck. The key is to avoid huge swaths of black swimsuit material. Even a little keyhole or lace up strings can break up an all black one piece. The reason is that an all black swimsuit on a larger woman, that covers the entire body, can sort of stand out as way too dark and depressing. It can look like you are trying to hide yourself and make you stand out even more. A black swimsuit looks best when you can see a little bit of skin too, even if it’s just a small keyhole or your back that is showing skin.

The key to wearing black and looking amazing in it no matter what your body size is, is to make sure there is some skin showing or maybe even a burst of color, on a larger body. Too much black cloth can be dreary. If you are looking at plus sizes, go for a black suit that shows your back, or has a nice V-neck design in the front. This gives you a break from all the black and flatters the figure. The key to a black swimsuit is finding one that really looks amazing and showcases a beautiful part of your figure, be it back, shoulders, or upper chest. As long as you find the right fit and style, a timeless black bikini or one-piece is always going to give you that chic, I am a celebrity look!

Classic black bikini



This contrast bow swimsuit by Ted Baker is a timeless winner. Ted baker is a designer in London who recently delved into women’s apparel including swimsuits. Today Ted Baker offers a wide range of collections including: Menswear, Womenswear, Global, Endurance, Accessories, Fragrance, Skinwear, Footwear, Eyewear and Watches.

High waisted contrast bow

What I love about this piquant look is that it comes across as a high-waisted bikini, but in fact it is a one piece! This is accomplished with the feminine white contrast bow belt. It adds a sweet touch to the one piece making it have a two-piece look to it. This swimsuit has a little sweetheart neckline in front looks great on a small chest or cup size woman.

The contrast of sexy sweetheart black and the white belt almost gives this cute swimsuit a naughty look, but in a good wholesome way. I recognize the adorable model though don’t know her name, and I believe this swimsuit was carried by both Asos and Nordstrom as well as other high-end boutiques. I love Asos! They select great designs for women and some of their top sellers they carefully re-fashion into similar items for plus size figure women which is fantastic.

Swimsuit with a cute back

The back side of this Ted Baker swimsuit is actually very flattering. It has a scoop back but also clasps in the back so it gives a sort of one-piece/two-piece combo look in the back just like it gives the illusion of a two piece in the front with the little contrast belt.  Her waist looks amazing with the little white belt cutting across.  Simply adorable.

This swimsuit actually came out a few years ago and even now its hard to locate it online. Simplicity like this makes for a timeless classic swimsuit. I saw it featured on US Asos website but it was listed as out of stock. Ted baker is based out of UK London and the swimsuits designed by baker are sold by sites such as Asos and Nordstrom. Because Ted Baker is originally a men’s designer, the swimsuits reflect this cool “girlfriend” look to them. Your man will be sure to love a Ted Baker design.

I ran across this adorable IPad photograph.  I believe this is Kate Upton, definitely from Vix Swimwear.  The collection that included this ultra-classic red bikini was from just a few years ago but of course this look stays in style because its timeless.

Red swimsuits attract men

Red always attracts the attention of men and magnetize them to you.  So if you want to look smoking hot try a red swimsuit.  The classic bikini, while not for the faint figured, is a timeless look.  Note that you can also wear a one piece red swimsuit for a similar classic look ala Baywatch.  Red looks great whether as a bikini or a one piece.

Get in shape this fall riding a beach cruiser

What strikes you about this photograph is the casual summer fun.  It’s quintessential in so far as being a great beach cruiser photograph.  Makes you think of endless summer with little worries.  Her cool sun had with the western look to it along with hoop earing and classic bangles add to the classic appeal here.   If you have not been on a beach bike this summer yet you have to go!  A classic look from the wonderful swimsuit designer Vix.
