Drew Barrymore, Jessica Alba, and Ashley Olsen

The recent flock of stars incorporating the “black & gold” trend includes Jessica Alba, Drew Barrymore, and Ashley Olsen. Better yet, when the gold and black are mixed with leopard prints it can become the perfect combination of sophisticated chic, if done right. We absolutely adore how this combination (reminiscent of elegance of the 80s) can transform a look into high fashion status. With swimwear, the same formula applies. Case in point: the Mia Reversible Bikini by Vix.

Ok so here’s what we love: this leopard print top meshes the black contrast and gold with elegant detailing at center bust. A sliding tortoise shell is accompanied by two gold beads that enhance the look, and the solid black bottom incorporates the same detailing at the string bikini sides. There’s something a little bit romantic and sexy about leopard print swimsuits mixed with black solids, which we go gaga for. Mix in the gold details and you have a winner. But the best part about the bikini, hands down, is that if you get sick of leopard or want something simpler, you can always flip it over and turn this ensemble into a solid black bikini.

This suit is reversible! So you get two looks for the price of one. Oh, and, it’s part of our swimwear sale for 2010. So hop to it! Or sprint to it, not sure… Whatever felines do.
