2022 SWIMWEAR TRENDS – CUTOUT ONE-PIECE SWIMSUIT
Invented by Franco Moschino in 1983, the cutout one-piece has held a spot in swimwear lines ever since. However, when Dua Lipa Instagrammed her one-piece with a cutout at the waist, the internet went crazy with WANT for this style that makes a grand True Fashionista statement.
The beauty of these intricately designed pieces is shown not just in their unique design but also in their versatility. Post-swim, step into a flowy pair of linen pants or don a wrap skirt, and just like that, your cut-out, one-piece swimsuit instantly turns into a top that can effortlessly be worn to a post-beach dinner and evening festivities. Designer houses like Fella Sabath and Madewell are producing cutouts showing up in various creative locations within the space of a swimsuit, adding to their True Fashionista individuality.
A quick nod to what has been called the "LBD of swimsuits," the red one-piece. (If you flashback to Baywatch at this point, we're with you.) Simple, sleek lines are represented in 2022 by the likes of Sea Level, Ava, and Mara Hoffman for a style that won't quit, season after season. If you haven't hopped on board the red one-piece train yet. Feel free to do so at True Fashionistas, Naples' best consignment store.
2022 SWIMWEAR TRENDS – CLASSIC TRIANGLE BIKINI
You can't go wrong with this classic, born from a global textile shortage in 1946. Its simple structure of triangle pieces equipped with laces that tie behind the neck for greater comfort and support has been a swimwear mainstay of bikini lines just forever.
Versace serves up this year's version of the triangle bikini in a series of True Fashionista iconic Barocco prints, as do Body Glove and Envy. Dior's triangle line includes a bikini top in blue technical fabric showcasing the Dior Oblique motif, a True Fashionista Dior House symbol since its first appearance in 1967. Shop for your next triangle bikini at the best designer consignment store, True Fashionistas.
2022 SWIMWEAR TRENDS – COVERUPS
Every True Fashionista swimwear look needs a proper coverup for completion. Beach cover-ups are a summer must-have and an ultra-comfortable option on a hot and sticky day by the water. Coverups can also be a significant confidence boost due to the comfort factor. The choice for coverup styles is long, from maxi dresses and tunics to classic sarong styles. However, there is the option of a full dress with short sleeves and a v-neckline from Dippin' Daisy's.
For the bottom-only types, Missoni's stripe plissé maxi skirt coverup features a True Fashionista sheer striped print in classic Missoni multicolor and a flattering slit up the side to provide coverage and keep you cool. Another sarong option comes courtesy of Monday Swimwear and their St. Tropez Sarong in various colors.
Then there's the True Fashionista swimsuit coverup you might not think exists: pants! Enjoy a breezy easy Pacheco pant coverup from Trina Turk. These sheer drawstring pants offer a slit leg for comfort as well.
2022 SWIMWEAR TRENDS – LOWBACK ONE-PIECE
The lowback one-piece shows off ample skin while retaining the form of the trusted one-piece. Choose the entirely backless look if you prefer extra coverage in the bust area but still want to show off some skin; the scoop-back if you're feeling a little more conservative; or if you're feeling especially daring, the all-over-plunge. Designers killing the lowback look in 2022 include the likes of Bella Dahl's tie-dye suits, Gigi C. Camilla faux leather, and Hermoza Barbara's one piece that is so slick it can be worn as a bodysuit as well.
