Discover 5 Top Swimwear Trends for 2022
1. Swimwear as Ready-to-Wear
We love pieces that are versatile. The truth is that with this type of bikini, in a few minutes, and with the combination of a few pieces, you will be ready to rock. In other words, you can wear the same piece to the beach and then combine it with high-waisted pants, for example, and you’re ready to go out to dinner.
2. All Tied Up
This trend had already started in 2021, however this year it will return in force. As the wires are adjustable, it looks good on any body type and makes a woman more comfortable. In addition to being very stylish, it is very sexy!
3. Belted Swim
Marking the waist with a belted swimsuit is a great idea. It helps to flatter your curves and enhance your waist. In addition, it is super elegant and feminine.
4. Cross Halter Bikini Top
Until now it was not very common to see this type of bikini top, but this year this model seems to be a big trend. It is perfect for women with smaller breasts.
5. Cut It Out
This is a trend in pretty much every garment this year, but this summer it will get even more popular and is definitely one of the top swimwear trends for 2022. The look features a more traditional and classic silhouette.
