Now that Memorial Day has passed and schools are getting out, it’s time to hit the pool! If you’re like other women, you’re probably planning out your beach and pool looks for this summer, whether you go for a daily swim or take a dip once a season. Read about new trends for 2022 swim season below!
Retro Colors–Think 70s
We’ve been seeing retro designs and patterns hit every fashion scene over the past few years. Now it’s time for it to hit the poolside. Whether it’s bold color schemes, groovy florals, or wavy patterns, the 70s are making a big wave.
This bikini adds some electricity to your look with its retro-inspired palette of lime green, pink, and orange on a black base. The strappy high-cut bottoms will provide just enough coverage, while also elongating your legs. Avoid those pesky lines on your shoulders with the strapless bandeau-style top!
For some ideas to complete this swim day look, pair it with our Fiji Waters Fringe Trim Cover-Up Dress, and top it off with the Walk with Me Buckled Sandals.

When we think of swimwear, most of us think of exposed shoulders, right? Well, it’s time for that to change. Ditch the sunburns and opt for a suit with sleeves! Rash guards, wetsuits, or just regular old bikinis that have short or long sleeves are all over the pools this season.
Our Cabana Ruched Bikini will provide a subtle take on the trendy look with off-shoulder sleeves. Plus, the print adds a 70s vibe. The Go All Out Slide-On Sandals and Miami Vice Swim Crochet Cover Up will make an ideal trendy and affordable outfit for your day at the beach.
Belt It Up
Why not add some shape to your outfit at the beach? You can make swimming just as much of a fashion show as your daily activities, and one way to do this is opt for a belted swimsuit or cover-up. A tie at the waist or a structured belt with a buckle will both work for this trend.
If you’re just soaking up some vitamin D, leave your cover-up tied at the waist since it will help protect your skin, and give you that belted look. If you are ready to take a dip, look for a waterproof belt that you can add to your suit, or shop for one that has a belt or tie built in.

Cutouts for Days
You probably aren’t surprised to hear that the cutout trend is still going strong for swimwear as well as other categories. A sassy cutout detail can add some tantalizing appeal to your look, allowing you to show off a bit more skin and make a statement with visually stunning designs.
The Summer Plans One-Piece Swimsuit comes in a wild mixed animal print and has cutouts all down the front. The suit comes in a full coverage design. If you prefer one-pieces but want to add some edge, this might be the suit for you.
Ruffles, Ruffles, and More Ruffles
Feminine touches make your swimwear prettier than ever! This trend is being executed in a variety of ways, such as ruffle necklines, sleeves, or on the bottoms.
Our take on this trend is this high-waisted cropped tankini set. The top has a layered ruffle that will add that hint of romance. Plus, the high-waisted bottoms have a vintage feel with their cut and large-scale polka dot print!
Your poolday outfit consists of more than just a suit–there’s shoes, cover-ups, hats, sunglasses, and more! If you need some ideas for how to style a swimsuit, keep reading!
Take the flat brim hat to the poolside! A woven straw hat with a flat brim is the perfect accessory to add some extra style to your look, while also providing protection from the sun, keeping you looking young for longer.
