A classic one-piece luxury swimsuit or bikini is always in style, but each passing summer brings a new selection of fun swimwear trends to consider, and 2022 is no exception. As the weather finally warms up and we get the chance to relax by the pool or on the beach for the first time post-pandemic, it’s time to explore what the hottest swim trends are. Check out some of the styles of the moment and get some inspiration as you prepare for the summer holidays!
Detailed and Low Back Swimsuits
We already mentioned the classic one-piece, and here’s a variation on that which is looking like it’ll be big for summer 2022: the low back one-piece. There are pieces that are entirely backless for the more daring, or less revealing scooped and plunged versions.
This scoop-neck swimsuit from Pain de Sucre is a classic mix of femininity and style. With exposed back and wide cross straps and back panels, it exudes the spirit of the French Riviera’s high fashion.
For something a little more daring, this Ajourage Couture tango red plunging back halter swimsuit is sure to turn heads. Its elegant shape emphasises the body’s silhouette and has a simplicity with a subtle but detailed trim.
This swimsuit is a modern classic, in the colour, nautical ‘Navy’. It is crafted from a luxe textured fabric and offers a sleek and minimal silhouette with a belted waist.
Gold and Metallic Swimwear
There’s nothing better than the sparkle of the sun on the sea or pool…except maybe the sparkle of the sun on your swimwear!
Metallics and golds are going to be big this summer in the swimwear world, bringing a luxury feel and a touch of class to help you stand out from the crowd, while enhancing your sun-kissed skin. Here are some of our favourites.
Maryan Mehlhorn’s Traces low-plunge halterneck swimsuit will brighten up even a less than sunny day on the beach. With a black and caramel leopard-skin pattern overlaid with gold, it exudes radiance and the feeling of summer.
This dusk pink padded swimsuit from Glimmering Nature has textured fabrics in subtle silver and pink, with silver lurex threads to make you shimmer in the sunshine. It’s an extremely flattering fit and has built-in tummy control for extra confidence.
Finally, we have a lido print triangle bikini top from Pain de Sucre. A fashion statement indeed, this bikini top is designed to accompany a cocktail. With small pleated voile ruffles on the neckline and removable triangle mould cups to offer you choice.
Puff Sleeve Swimwear
Sometimes minimalist is the way to go, and sometimes - well, sometimes it’s not! Puff sleeves and ruffles are fun, big, and make a bold statement when adorning swimwear to help you make an entrance in summer 2022.
Ruffle Strap Swimsuits
Ruffle straps add a touch of playfulness and glamour to swimwear and bring an extra dimension to what could otherwise be a more run of the mill piece. Summer 2022 is looking like it will feature ruffle straps as one of the big trends, and here are a few of our favourite pieces.
We’re starting with this bra and high waisted pant bikini set from Ephemera in Arcadia print which is a floral theme on a cream background. A beautiful set in its own right, it’s taken to new heights by its square neckline and straps adorned with ruffles.
Ephemera have also released a one-piece to complement the bikini set. Also in Arcadia print, it carries across the elegance and femininity showcased in the bikini set.
Swimwear With Bright Colours
Sometimes, it’s just about simplicity, and all you need is a beautifully cut, elegant piece in bright and bold hues. Level up your poolside look and bring the sun with you with statement swimwear that epitomises a sexy summer - like this Soya Scoop Neck Swimsuit in Red from Pain De Sucre. With laser cut wide cross straps and back panels which offer a smooth, pinch-free look.
Alternatively, if you’re looking for a bright bikini to get your summer 2022 off to a sunny start, why not take a look at the Flamingo Pond Swimsuit from Karen Mabon? Its vibrant colour with patterns makes it stand out from the rest.
Another one of our favourites is the Island Souvenir Skyway Embroidered Swimsuit which features beautifully embroidered palm trees on a light blue background.
Textured And Crinkle Swimsuits
Finally in our round-up of 2022’s biggest swimwear trends, we come to textured fabrics - we have it on good authority that crinkle swimsuits will be one of this year’s must-haves for poolside and beachside days. The crinkle fabric elevates swimwear to another level when it comes to class and style.
Pain de Sucre's Coral One Piece is a two-tone black and gold colourway with a classic look, and its textured fabric enhances the look so you’ll stand out from the crowd.
Whatever swimsuit style you choose for summer 2022, here at Caroline Randell we have pieces covering everything from the timeless to the very latest fashions, so explore our range to find the swimwear that’s right for you to help make your holiday perfect this year.
