When summer rolls around, our minds race to crystal-clear waves and evenings spent by the side of a pool sipping our favorite drink.
Good summer swimwear can only add to the enjoyment of the season!
And what makes flawless summer swimwear? Something that’s beautiful and trendy at the same time.
If the history of swimwear—one that can be traced back to 18th-century gowns worn for sea bathing—teaches us anything, it’s that styles are changing constantly. Today, swimwear trends come and go faster than ever, making it much harder to keep up.
At the beginning of 2022, it’s time to look into the new trends that are set to define the new year. Keep reading as we plunge into some of the best looks that will dominate the summer.
Bond girl meets beach babe in minimalist black bikinis!
Today, black swimwear is available in a multitude of designs. From tie-ups and high-waisted bikini bottoms to triangle tops and halter bikini tops, your choices are endless.
The best part about black bikinis is they’re never out of place, no matter what the occasion may be.
Lounging under the sun, posing for photos, or chatting at a pool party, black bikinis can go from a relaxed ensemble to an enchanting number with a simple switch of accessories.
Crocheted to perfection
Maybe it’s the way Harry Styles rocked a crocheted cardigan or the throwback photo of Sofia Vergara looking stunning in a crochet dress. Crocheted patterns have made a stylish comeback in the last couple of years.
That’s why it’s not surprising to see this style making its way into swimwear in the new year.
The boho-rustic aesthetic combined with unique designs makes it a great addition to your beachwear collection, especially if you’re aiming for a look that screams tropical goddess!
Flare and square
While plunging necklines and sexy off-shoulder designs have a charm of their own, summer 2022 is looking more promising for square-cut necklines.
This neckline is popular for showing off a little bit of cleavage while still getting the support you need. If you want a conventional neckline with a twist, this one’s for you.
Want to try a different look? The square-necked, one-shoulder style is going to make you feel alluring and elegant.
Straight from the animal kingdom
Animal print swimsuits have always been iconic, and are set to dominate the summer of 2022.
We’re not just talking about the classic leopard or tiger print either! Unusual but unique prints like the cow print and the dalmatian print are becoming a celebrity favorite.
Accessories like wraps and cover-ups are available in your favorite animal prints as well, making it much easier for you to match a perfect animal-print outfit.
Mix and match
Gone are the days when you matched your bikini top with the bottoms. The trend today is mix and match; pairing colors together and mixing multiple prints.
Do you want more emphasis on your bikini top? Wear a patterned top with a subtle, monochrome bottom.
Or maybe take the road less traveled and mix patterns together. You can opt for a less risky choice like vertical stripes on horizontal stripes or make a bolder move by trying entirely different patterns.
Say it with strapless
A bandeau bikini top is another look on the rise and is the perfect choice for someone who loves a risk.
Strapless bikini tops also help enhance your figure. From making your bust look fuller to complimenting your upper body, a strapless top creates daring outfits.
In an age where swimwear is more than just what you choose for the beach and the pool, a strapless top’s growing popularity is not surprising. Outside the water, they make for an amazing substitute for strapless tops.
