Trend Report: Swimwear '22

Summer is here! Today we want to share with you some inspiration for you to gal your summer up!

 Remember gyaru fashion does not need to be expensive, and while you could order directly from the following brands, we super recommend checking out your local thrift shops, thrift websites (Fril, Mercari, Depop, Vinted) and local brands for similar looking items!

 πŸ¦‹ Animal Print


Is there any print more gal than animal print? While the last couple of years were all about zebra, this time we are seeing lots of cheetah and leopard print across different brands. Choose either a print in soft brown or beige tones for a more elegant understated look or higher contrast or black & white for an eye catching one! Suitable for onee, sexy and wild styles.

 πŸ¦‹ Paisley Print


Paisley (also known as bandana print and mango print) is a summer classic. As with animal print, we've seen brands come up with design mostly in monochrome colourways, which makes them very elegant. Suitable for sexy styles.

The front knot and floaty material reminds us of the halter tunics from d.i.a but in bikini form!

We can totally see gals rock this with gold jewellery and big hairstyles!

πŸ¦‹ Floral Print


Floral patterns are yet another spring-summer classic! Opt for a soft palette with ribbon and ruffle detailing for sweet styles. Or go for bright and large printed florals! They remind us of datura and similar brands and are suitable for sexy (agejo, kyaba) styles.

πŸ¦‹ Monogram Print


As we saw in our recent trend report, the 90s and 2000s comebacks have made us crazy about branding and monograms again. The geometrical patterns give an interesting texture to every outfit and in swimwear its no exception! Suitable for mature (onee) styles.

πŸ¦‹ Bows & Tie Ups


If you are not a fan of prints, opt for designs with different cuts and textures! Bows tied at the shoulder give a stylish look. Brand Gyda does this with a draped effect for added glamour, while Darich uses a cute knot to make their simple ensemble more eye-catching. Suitable for mature and sweet styles.

Unfortunately we haven't found many plus size options using this trend, so you could DIY by adding a ribbon to your bikini top or go for designs with a similar vibe such as this adorable set from Shein.
