The swimsuit trends for 2022 are here! Siri play “Summertime” by Will Smith. Well, it is not quite summer time yet, but it is literally around the corner, so let’s start swimsuit hunting! The heat is on the way and if you have any vacations coming up, or would like to treat yourself to new bathing suits this summer, this is the blog post for you. Trends are fun to try, especially when you are feeling carefree and vibrant – anything goes! Why not try some new swimsuit trends this season? You will feel like your very best self while you are poolside with your girls, or on your favorite island with your significant other for a “baecation.”
No matter if you are into metallic, string, crochet bikinis or fun one pieces, there are so many different bathing suit trends that will be taking over your favorite brands this season. We have rounded up five different trends to help get started with your swimsuit search and where to purchase them.
Crochet All Day
Crochet bathing suits will be a big deal this summer and are expected to be seen on many different beaches and are definitely on the swimsuit trends for 2022. They bring nostalgic vibes but don’t think of this trend as “old” or outdated. Crochet bathing suits are far from that. They are unique and depending on your vibe, they can work perfectly for a summer vacation. If you consider your personal style to be bohemian, then a crocheted suit is for you! Below, are a few crochet swimsuits that are a fun vibe for the long awaited summer!
Are you visiting the Caribbean this summer? If so, this is a cute crochet bikini option for you with a tropical vibe and can be worn with a lot of other colors. This swimsuit will work well paired with a pair of linen pants and woven sandals for a full caribbean look.
Crochet Color Options
Having a neutral colored crochet swimsuit is not a bad idea. This bikini is white, therefore it can easily mix and match with other colors. Also, this bikini covers more of the stomach area than your typical bikini top. The bikini bottom is high waisted and perfect for those who still want to rock bikinis but prefer to wear ones that are less revealing.
The summer is all about color, so why not try a colored crochet bikini. Here is a yellow and multicolored strappy crochet bikini set, which we love. You can choose how you would like to wrap the strings around your body. The bikini top can also be worn as a regular top with denim shorts or a skirt for festival season, and who doesn’t love a multi-functional piece. Check out our blog post on Color Trends for 2022, to find colors that you can choose from when looking for bikini options.
Strappy bathing suits are edgy and unique! The great thing about tie up bathing suits is that they can be uniquely wrapped the way that you want them to be. There are so many ways to tie up a bathing suit to keep them secure, but also to add an extra edge to your swimsuit. Most of the time strappy swimsuits are seen mainly wrapped multiple times around the stomach area or right under the chest, either way they are simple but yet so cute. If you choose to buy a strappy swimsuit this year, how will you tie yours?
The Kelly Green trend is not new news to us and is still a very popular color to wear this summer. This green bikini can be wrapped under the chest area or around the stomach, to match your personal style. Also, this bikini is made of terry cloth material which is another trend that is popular this season. We imagine that the bikini will easily dry after a swim because of its unique towel material! Gold accessories and denim shorts would pair well with this swimsuit.
A lot of tie up swimsuits are bikinis, but here is a one piece option that can be tied in different ways. This swimsuit can be tied around the front of the stomach or tied into a bow around the back area. Again, they are versatile and can be styled to suit your personal preferences. Hot pink is another trending color this season and can be matched with colors such as orange, blue, yellow or green.
Floral Print Tie Up Swimsuits
Floral prints are what? Ground breaking… and they work for both the spring and summer. Here is a cute affordable lace up bikini with metal ring detailing. The metal rings add extra details to the overall swimsuit. This swimsuit may be a lot for those who tend to go with minimal swimsuits. This swimsuit can be toned down with more neutral tone pieces to balance out the colors in the swimsuit.
Check out this wraparound bikini with dangling rhinestone and charm embellishments. This bikini does the accessorizing for you, with its golden details. The golden charms are similar to the ones that are on belly dancers skirts and tops. Since the gold embellishments are so bold, this swimsuit can be paired with more minimal outerwear pieces such as a linen two piece set or a nice black sheer coverup.
Cut It Out
Cut out details will be everywhere this summer, from dresses to skirts to bikinis. The cut out trend is definitely one that you do not want to miss this season. Cut outs are universal, so if you are nervous to show your stomach area that’s okay there are some swimsuits that have back or side cut outs. It’s all about finding what type of cut out works best for you. Here are different style cut outs that you can look for while swimsuit shopping:
This one piece is a perfect example of a swimsuit that has a cut out around the chest area versus the stomach area. Either way it still makes a bold statement especially in Cobalt blue, which is a color that is always a show stopper. Pair this swimsuit with a cute skirt and pair of wedges for a full summertime pool look.
Here is a bandeau style one piece that wraps around the neck, with a triangle shaped cut out front. This style swimsuit can be worn out as a bodysuit once finished at the pool. Honestly, most one piece bodysuits can be worn as a bodysuit as well, as long as you are comfortable with wearing certain cut outs in public.
Ruffles are for summer and this marigold yellow one piece is beautiful. The ruffle shoulder detail and s-hook closure with the back cut out is the perfect feminine touch. Both the v-neck and back cut out still adds edge to this one piece while also keeping things modest.
This tiger print one piece option is different, it’s a one piece swimsuit but with its cut outs it is similar to a bikini. Although it looks like a bikini at first glance it still gives you the support of a one piece swimsuit. A swimsuit like this is a win-win situation in our book!
Barely-there bikinis are popular especially amongst those who like minimal swimsuits. However, they are not for everyone but for those who like them there are plenty of options to choose from. Some prefer to show less skin and to leave something up to the imagination. Either way, they are still very cute for summer. There are also different styles within barely-there bikinis, and some are more revealing than others. We forgot to mention, body size also does not matter when it comes to barely-there bikinis, they are universal! Here are a few different examples of barely-there bikinis.
Multi-colored barely there swimsuits are all over social media and in magazines. They are fun and vibrant for the summer and can be paired down with neutral colored pieces to make the swimsuit itself stand out. Or you can go all out and pair vibrant multi-colored swimsuits with other vibrant colors! If you are going on a vacation this summer,what better time to go all out to experiment with different colors! The time is now, and why not just go for it! Here are minimal multi-color swimsuits for all body types!
If you wear a metallic swimsuit this summer, you are guaranteed to stand out in the crowd. Metallic swimsuits are another showstopper no matter where you are. A mesh or sheer skirt would pair well with this bikini, along with a pair of platform sandals, very futuristic! Oh, and you can not forget a pair of clear vintage vibe sunglasses!
Barely-there bikinis do not discriminate! Here are a few curve barely-there bikinis to try this summer:
Swimsuits with Sparkle
