As we slowly pick ourselves up and adjust to the post-pandemic world, it’s time to say goodbye to our blankets and give a warm welcome to fashion. That’s right, we’ve had enough of gloomy pajamas and oversized sweaters. This is the year of color, vibrant clothes, and a lot of fashion drama. As the temperature starts to shift, we’ve got a whole bag full of hot trends for spring/summer 2022. So, make some room in your wardrobe and get inspired by the following list of the hottest trends that you should follow.
- Bold, eclectic, and bright colors:
Why not welcome 2022 with a bang of vibrant and bold colors? The upcoming spring/summer season will be all about embracing beautiful, brave colors that make you feel good and radiates positivity for onlookers. So, what type of colors are we talking about? Green has emerged as the top invested color, but pink, white, neon, yellow, and orange are still holding their ground. So don’t just restrict the pop of color to clothes; this year, bring a splash of color to your outfit through shoes, bags, and even accessories.
- Wide, loose, and ripped:
Yes, we are talking about jeans as no fashion trend is complete without a pair of classic jeans. So, what’s new this season? Ripped, wide, printed, and low-rise are some of the most popular styles this year, while plus size boyfriend jeans are favorites among curvy ladies. Have a love for prints? Rock a beautiful high-rise printed straight jeans. Fan of full-length pants? Rock a pair of washed jeans with sneakers, a crop top, and an oversized trench coat.
- Maxis and midi skirts are back:
Midi skirts and maxis are key fashion trends that are rocketing their way into spring/summer 2022. With a hippier twist to the style, we saw the runway full of simple tube-style maxis that fit closer to the ankles and were complemented by chunky yet chic platforms. Slip skirts, long hemlines, and oversized maxis are dominating the current season and the ones to come. So, we suggest that you stock up on a few staples such as asymmetrical skirts, high-waist pencil midi skirts, jean skirts, and more.
- Not mini but micro:
The return of the super-micro miniskirt has inspired countless sexy looks on the runway this season. The upcoming seasons are all about ‘less is more,’ which means that the shorter your skirt, the better! You can even partner your micro skirt with plunging necklines and sultry heels. The likes of Chanel and Miu Miu left little to the imagination as they left hemlines cropped on the runway, but thankfully gave us folks a punch of inspiration for our summer/spring outfits. So, if you’ve got a 2000s mini skirt lying somewhere in your closet, you better clean it up and rock it this season.
- Bra tops are a thing now:
We’ve been saying it for a while, and we’ll say it again, bra tops are the new crop tops, and they are the hottest thing dominating the past and this year as well. Bra tops partnered with mini skirts and blazers have been a head turner and work to reveal just the right amount of skin. Unlike the 2000’s trend where bralettes were barely there and were paired with extremely low-cut flared pants, the modern twist is a bit chicer. You can pair your bra tops with high-waist wide-leg trousers or maxi skirts with dramatic outwear, subtle jewelry, and statement shoes.
- Floral, stripes, and sequins:
When Dua Lipa rocked the runway in a metal mesh dress by Versace, we knew that sequins weren’t going anywhere. Instead, glitter, sequined applications, striped, and floral prints are trending for the upcoming season. From floral graphics to stripes, all were featured heavily on the runway, which means that we should definitely get some for your spring/summer wardrobes as well. Striped ribbed midi and maxi dresses are hot on the list, while sequined miniskirts and overly embellished dresses are also a perfect fit for fancier occasions.
- The knitwear passion isn’t going anywhere:
Knitwear has been the highlight of fashion trends for the past two years, and it’s showing no signs of stopping. Whether it’s knit dresses, skirts, or sweaters, we are seeing it everywhere, even on the runway with dramatic twists. So, what should you keep for your spring/summer collection? A knit dress is a must-have, especially in bold colors, while a preppy cut-out jumper, knitted vests, and cropped cardigans are all that you need for the upcoming season.
- Some puff and some feathers:
Since oversized is the biggest trend of them all, then why not let puffs and feathers have a spotlight too? Bouncy tulle dresses, puffballs, and poufy peplums have made a fresh new entry into the season’s trend list. One of our favorites is the combination of a puffy top with sleek jeans or a sleek top with a poufy pleated skirt. Another trend you should look out for is ruffles and feathers. You don’t have to go all out, but a feather dress now and then would make a lovely addition to your wardrobe.
Spring’s just around the corner, which means that it’s time to update our wardrobes and get a fresh load of the hottest fashion trends. While comfort wear has been the sole runner of the fashion show for the pandemic-ridden world, we are seeing many out-the-box styles dominating the trends. The year 2022 is all about feeling good about yourself and being thankful for surviving the worst years of this century. So, wear your confidence along with our above recommend must-haves for the upcoming season.
