The Most Popular Swimwear Trends of 2022

Belted Swimwear

Every year, the entirety of the fashion community unabashedly looks at Chanel because they continually raise the bar for not only swimwear, but also almost every major trend. We all collectively took notes when plenty of belted styles strutted down their runway which was a huge sign that this was going to one of the most popular swimwear trends of 2022. I absolutely love this style as it plays into that contemporary vintage aesthetic that is so incredibly polished and classy looking. Black & white looks were favored by Chanel but the belt works wondrously in any color or pattern. See for yourself below!

Cutout Swimwear

Just like in clothing, cutouts are also a big push in terms of popular swimwear trends everyone will be getting behind. As fashion continues to push the envelope on styles that are just the right amount of sexy, it makes sense why cutout swimwear is such a big part of 2022. Ignoring the fact that we risk potentially awkward tan lines, cutouts in both two-pieces and one-pieces are undeniably alluring and make for an incredible summer look. I, myself, cannot wait to hop on this swimwear trend! There are endless styles out there for you to choose from. Linking some of my faves here!

Metallic Shine

If you are looking to make a statement whether you be on the beach or chilling poolside, I highly suggest you consider tapping into the metallic shine swimwear trend. This look translates into literal metallic fabrications that reflect with each beam of sun. Or styles within this trend can include a little bit of sparkle interwoven into knit fabrications or even metallic hardware that helps add to the reflectiveness. Whichever look you opt for within the metallic shine trend, expect to look your best wherever you go!

Bustier Tops

If you have not heard, corsets and bustier tops are one of the hottest looks of 2022. With the incredible versatility of being able to be dressed up or down coupled with the sultry aesthetic, it was only natural that this crept into current swim trends. Bustier tops integrated into bikinis and one-pieces are extremely flattering on any body type! Shop bustier swim styles below to get ahead of your summer wardrobe.

Sheer Coverups

Lastly, I would be remiss not to go over one of the biggest coverup trends to pair with the above swimwear styles. Sheer coverups are the latest craze. Similar to cutouts, this style of bathing suit coverup is meant to make a big statement. Gone are the days of modest dressing! Sheer fabrications, see-through knits and more will be everyone’s favorite way of covering up as they head from the pool to the beach and back again. I linked a plethora of styles below so you can shop the perfect one to pair with your own bikini or one-piece!
