As we make our way into the new year, with the summer sun still shining down on us, we start looking at the upcoming swimwear trends we will see in 2022. With the easing of covid restrictions, we are seeing more and more people hit the beach.

Here is everything you need to know this summer when it comes to the latest bikini and one-piece trends.


1. One-Piece Swimsuits

Do you follow the swimsuit trends? If you do, you would know the one-piece swimsuit never goes out of style - and this year, the one-piece will continue to be a popular go-to swimsuit. From solid colours and prints to sophisticated and elegant lines it’s easy to see why the one-piece is a classic swimsuit loved by so many women. The one-piece is great for women of all different body shapes and sizes and is very popular among postpartum mums looking for mum-friendly swimwear. For a great example of a stunning one-piece swimsuit that is sure to turn heads in 2022, check out the Harlem one-piece. It is easy to see why this women’s reversible swimsuit is popular this summer.


2. Sporty Swimsuits

Who said swimwear can’t be fun and functional? Get ready because this year you will see a rise in sports swimwear. Sporty swimwear is all about support and comfort all-in-one. This popular lady’s swimwear trend offers added support.

Support under the bust and support in their waistbands. Looking to add some sporty swimwear to your summer swimsuit collection? Look for high-waisted or mid-rise bikini bottoms with a supportive waistband and pair it with a sports bra-Esque scoop neck bikini top.

3. Printed Swimwear

Prints, prints and more prints will dominate this year’s swimsuit trends. So, what prints can we expect to see this year? If we take a look at the swimwear trends for 2022, we will see animal print is all the rage. That’s right, animal prints – leopard and zebra print to be exact will be at the fourth front this year.

If you are new to animal print swimwear look for reversible swimwear – this will give you the option to ease into the trend, look at the Jagger collection. Mix and match your print top or bottom with a solid colour - found on the reversible side, or go print from head to toe.


4. High-Waisted Bikini Bottoms

High-Waisted bikini bottoms are a must-have with our customers and will still be a standout in 2022. And it’s not hard to see why. These ladies’ bikini bottoms look stunning on women of all shapes and sizes and are very popular among postpartum mums looking for mum-friendly swimwear. This style is both feminine and sophisticated and a go-to staple for all your summer affairs. Feel confident and comfortable in high-waisted bikini bottoms that will have you looking fabulous every time.


5. Textured Swimwear

One of the biggest trends to hit summer in 2022 is different fabrics. This trend was one of the hottest swimwear trends in 2021 and is still just as hot today. If you’re looking to stand out this summer, then jump on the textured swimsuit trend. Ribbed knit, crochet, terry cloth and crinkled fabrics are the pick of the season and look stunning in a bandeau top. A beautiful example is the Dreams Bandeau bikini top. This is the perfect example of how a different texture can create a sophisticated swimsuit without sacrificing comfort.

6. Ruffled Swimwear

When it comes to ruffles, you either love or hate them. This is a trend you won’t see here at Elka Swim this year, but one we do love. Straight from the high-end fashion runways, ruffles are taking the swimwear season of 2022 by storm. Expect to see ruffles on one-pieces and bikinis. Ruffles add an extra touch of class while being a standout statement piece that offers a unique feminine and playful look.
