Ready to rock your style on the beach, around the pool, or in your own back garden? Then don’t hesitate – smother yourself in sunscreen, don some snazzy shades, and make a splash in one of this season's stylish swimsuits or bikinis. Whatever your body shape, there is beautiful swimwear for everyone. From 'comfort-first' styles to 'sexy high-cut' designs, 2022’s stunning trends are hot, hot, hot –'for shore'!

With current fashion trends allowing you to enhance your best assets while still providing greater coverage, you'll be a 'scorcher' wherever you go. And why not slip a bright sarong around your waist or wear a pair of chic shorts with your swimwear, to sport a more casual look around town? This is a great alternative to the sassy go-to crop tops and tank tops you'll see on the streets.

Alongside the trending motifs of shimmery and iridescent tones, the checker prints, tropical patterns, sparkly fabrics and underwired bathing suit tops that are all the rage, bodysuits-turned-swimsuits and metallic bikinis are also trendsetting. But that's not all!

Take a look at these hot cozzies that will make you feel super cool in your own skin:


A Tankini is a crop top made of spandex-and-cotton or Lycra-and-nylon paired with a bikini bottom. Although the top is shorter this year, you’ll find them in various lengths with strapless, halter, and triangle options. They are not only ideal for popping back and forth between the pool and hotel restaurant, but also excellent for covering up if you want to be a little more modest or protect more of your skin when out in the sun.

Monokini/Cutout Swimsuit

A dramatic cut-out one-piece with high cut legs, the monokini will definitely emphasise an hourglass body shape while some are clearly designed for bold women who enjoy the idea of looking risqué. However quirky silhouettes with asymmetric straps, delicate draping, and metal hardware will flatter most body types if you choose the right one. An excellent alternative for women who do not feel comfortable wearing a bikini.

Belted Swimsuit

Sporty and sleek, the 70s-inspired belted swimsuit makes a comeback. Whether it's a ribbed, striped, printed or crocheted one-piece, the figure-hugging belt will help accentuate your curves, give contour and dimension to your figure, and add colour to a plain cozzie. What's more, you can creatively utilise your own accessories, personalising your swimwear with braided, canvas or chain belts that will turn your bathing suit into a statement piece.

Classic String Bikini

The 'Itsy Bitsy, Teenie Weenie, Yellow Polka Dot Bikini'  is here to stay whatever the current fashion craze. Today there are more styles available, with women of all ages wearing them. This versatile stringy bikini can be tied in all kinds of ways making it easy to find a style that fits you just right. And importantly, because they are easy to adjust, it's possible to bronze with nearly no tan lines.


If you’ve ever wanted to look extremely hot and seductive in the sun, the micro-glitter bikini is for you. Snug-fitting seductive and flirtatious, this bikini will turn heads, dazzle and maybe even elicit a compliment or two. Fun to wear (with loads of SPF of course), the micro-glitter bikini is not for the faint-hearted and utilises little in the way of actual material. It does come in all sizes, though, and is ideal for a hot pool party.
