Swimwear Trends 2022

Despite the summer coming to an end in New Zealand, we are still shopping for that perfect bikini or swimsuit to take on that holiday we hope we can have this year. If not, there's always the hot tub right?!

Not sure if it because I run a swimwear brand and Facebook targeting knows what I'm into, but it seems like in 2022 there are so many new swimwear brands cropping up. My Facebook and Instagram feed is full of bikinis! With so many styles to choose from it can be hard to make a choice, so I've compiled a list of the top 5 Hottest Swimwear trends you need to know about in 2022. 

1. Belts

If you love accentuating your waistline for that classic hourglass silhouette, the swimwear trend you need to know about is belted swimsuits. It’s flattering on most shapes and adds a little glamour to your basic one piece. Pair this with a high leg cut to add the illusion of longer legs. 

Shop the trend:  Taylor

2. Backless

High necked, long sleeves and backless. It really doesn't get any more sophisticated than this. You can take this style from the beach to the bar. Just add shorts and heels. 

Shop the trend:  Heni

3. Long sleeves

For those that like to be sun smart, you'll be pleased to hear that long sleeved wetsuit style one pieces are really on trend again this year. Sleek and sporty, you can be as active as you like and know you are covered. 

Shop the trend: Grace

4. Neon

Bright colours are really hot right now, and can make the tan really pop. They work on most skin tones and really just make you feel like summer personified when you put them on. 

Shop the trend: Jamie 


5. Sustainable swimwear

At Salty Minx this is not a trend. We have always and will always offer a wide range of recycled fabric. We use Econyl or Repreve which are derived from consumer waste including plastic and other ocean waste such as discarded fishing nets. 

Check out the range of sustainably and ethically made swimwear at Salty Minx and here's to the world opening up so we can enjoy a well deserved beach holiday in 2022!
