The tone for swimwear this season was set the moment Chanel opened their Spring 2022 Ready-to-Wear show with models sashaying down the runway in 90s inspired swimsuits. Fashion enthusiasts rejoiced as new swimwear trends came into the scene this year with travel finally becoming an agenda in everyone’s summer plans.

As we reach the fag end of swim season, here’s a roundup of this summer’s hottest trends as seen on the beach, poolside and everywhere in between.


Belts, chains, hoops, rings, you name it. Every accessory you love is seen holding together a piece of swimwear. What makes it so exciting is the boldness and charm it adds to the complete look.

Shine and Sparkle

Feminine, chic and so shiny. Say goodbye to boring old swimwear, instead shine both in and out of the sun with fabrics inspired by glittery nightlife. Lurex swimsuits in every possible colour and silhouette have been all the rage this season.

Cool Cutouts

Cutouts have proven they’re here to enhance every possible silhouette, and swimwear is no exception. They accentuate the female body in all the right places, boosting confidence. One-piece styles transition seamlessly from swimwear to daywear.

The Comfort Rib

Who doesn’t love a swimsuit that is stretchy, comfortable and cute? It gives off a sporty and cool vibe but still allows room for a hearty beachside brunch. Transition it into a wardrobe staple by pairing it with skirts, shorts or linen pants.
