4 Fashion Trends that Will Rule 2022
The year 2022 brings with it new hope and beginnings as the world steps out of the pandemic gloom and stay-at-home orders. The fashion industry is dipping into the Y2K enthusiasm for ideas, and they are shining the spotlight on skin, and more skin. High heels showing off toned legs, micro mini skirts, and splashes of bright colors are painting the runways with glee. You’d also think bold prints, floral prints, sheer fabrics, and revealing cuts that celebrate life. Read ahead for some of the hottest fashion styles and trends to follow in 2022.
Floral Prints Celebrating Spring and Summer
Top designers like Thurley are stressing heavily on delicate floral patterns in a riot of colors. Short playsuits with long sleeves are perfect for a light luncheon, as are layered knee-length skirts. Choose long flowing maxi dresses for a lovely evening out, or pick out a fitted garden dress that shows off all your curves. Layered or long dresses with thigh-high slits for lots of leg show are the way to go. Want to show off that shoulder tattoo? Go for dresses with detached sleeves or arm warmers.
The Elegant All-Time Charm of Cut-Outs
Cut-out patterns are ruling the runways with their charming peek-a-boo styles. You could go with dresses trimmed with cut-out hems or panels highlighting the layers. If you’re looking for the perfect dress for a high tea date, a mid-calf length cut-out dress in off-white would be just the thing. A Vee neckline hinting subtly at cleavage, puffed sleeves, and a slit in the center helps you make a graceful statement and turn heads when combined with nude heels.
Bold Monochromes and Solids
Fashion in 2022 is generous, letting you pick the colors and styles that flatter your body shape and make you the object of envy. If you like to go with solids, go ahead and experiment all you want. The little black dress is, undoubtedly, the all-time hit, but you could play around with fabrics and textures. How about a lace insert or lace-trimmed slip peeking from the hem. Or, pick out sheer chiffon that tantalizes with skin show, but not quite. Chiffon and georgette are lightweight, sexy fabrics that flow around your body, moving gently as you walk.
Let’s Talk Accessories
When picking out bags for the season, personal shoppers are leaning toward smaller and smaller clutches and slings that have shed all pretense of functionality. As for shoes, sexy high heels, chunky crocs with lots of embellishments, or sensible sneakers–take your pick. High-waist jeans are still around in a big way, as are hoodies for all occasions, formal, informal, casual, or lounge at home. Ready to complete the ensemble with jewelry. This season, feel inspired to make your own with epoxy resin combined with pearls, glitter, shimmer, shells, and sequins.
2022 is a great year for stepping out in style after the lockdowns. Whether working or partying, try out all your favorite looks and have fun with them.
