Nensi Dojaka is best known for its slinky runway pieces finished with cutouts and barely there straps, and you can now find that same design aesthetic available in the swimwear department. This is the brand's first season launching swimsuits, and I expect them to be huge for summer.

Chanel swimsuits have always been big among the fashion set, but they have even more of a cult following this summer thanks to the S/S 22 runway show that showcased '90s-inspired silhouettes. Opt for bright hues and classic Chanel branding.

When it comes to the peak of cool minimal swimsuits, Matteau is the brand to know. The Australian label has mastered simple lines and timeless silhouettes but also throws in season-defining trends.
