With days spent by the pool and laying on the beach nearly here, now is the time to take stock of your swimwear collection. Whether you have a few classic bathing suits you reach for season after season, or you tend to scoop a new suit each year, there are a few trends you’re going to want to know.
Thankfully, Jaynee Wehbe, the creative director of swimwear brand TRIANGL, is breaking down the three biggest trends for summer 2022. From colors to look out for to textures to experiment with, keep scrolling to get the style scoop from a swim expert — plus, shop the trends for yourself.
Trend #1: Bold Colors
“Being confident in a bikini is something we all need to champion. There is no better way than by wearing a swimsuit that is bright, bold and vibrant. Yes, a traditional black bikini is sexy, but this summer is about being noticed for all the (b)right reasons. Trending colors for TRIANGL span the rainbow; emerald greens, sky blues, deep pinks and bright oranges.” – Jaynee Wehbe
Shop the trend:
- Dippin’ Daisy’s Zen Top, $46 and Kiara Bottom, $44
- TRIANGL Vinca Tutti Bikini, $99
- Londre The Minimalist, $119
Trend #2: Textures
“This summer, it’s all about the all-around sensory experience of textured bikinis. Whether through touch – such as terry toweling, velvet (both printed and plains) and raised prints – or aesthetically pleasing fabrics, such as lurex sparkles that catch the sun, a textured bikini is the new way to elevate your swim wardrobe.” – Jaynee Wehbe

- Monday Swimwear St. Barth’s One Piece, $172
- TRIANGL Mala Tropical Bikini, $109
- Solid & Striped The Lilo Top, $94, The Lilo Bottom, $94
Trend #3: Three-Piece Swimsuits
“We’ve all owned a one-piece or a two-piece BUT this summer, TRIANGL continues to push the three-piece swimsuit. Bikinis are meant to be enjoyed throughout your entire summer day so we’ve designed our bikinis to be worn not only at the beach but also to and from and everywhere in between. The options are endless; hot pants, wide-leg shorts, skirts (mesh, sparkle, or rouged) and sarongs. Mix-matching textures and prints make for statement wear; otherwise, you can keep it simple yet chic with a three-piece matching suit.” – Jaynee Wehbe

- Frankie’s Bikinis Tia Terry Triangle Bikini Top, $80, Tia Terry String Bikini Bottom, $80, and Coco Terry Shorts, $105
- TRIANGL Vinca Checo Bikini, $89, Lenny Checo Sarong, $79
