It’s going to be a great year for fashion. When you’re looking to expand your wardrobe in 2022, it’s important to know all about the latest fashion trends. Here, we’ll take a look at all of the upcoming favorites, as well as the styles and colors you can look forward to in 2022.
Recently we’ve seen an uptick in interest for crafted clothes – or, at least, clothes that look handmade. This trend will continue in a big way in 2022. Don’t be afraid to add a little homemade personal touch to your wardrobe – including textures from crafts like tatting, crochet, and smocking. Knitwear is always a classic style, but these additional textures will elevate knit looks.
Do you still have some of your favorites from the 90s and early 00s? Now is the time to break them out. If they’re looking a little worse for wear, you don’t have to worry. These trends are coming back this year. Soon your favorite nostalgic styles will be remade with a uniquely 20s twist.
Mini Dresses and Party Styles
As the party scene revs up again, we’ll see a resurgence of the mini dress and other party styles. Don’t be afraid to make use of those feathers, crystal necklaces, and metallic fabrics from a few years ago. We’ll all be happy to see them make a comeback!
Loungewear sets are going to continue to be a great choice for many fashion-forward folks. Matching sets may include tracksuits, sweatsuits, ribbed knit sets, and so much more. Don’t be afraid to wear your favorite comfort wear to run errands, go to the store, or meet up with friends. It’ll be a big fashion trend in the coming year.
Some people love them, some people don’t. Wide pants are here to stay regardless. Workleisure is a new trend, and wide-legged pants are definitely riding the line between leisure and business attire. Pair these iconic pants with a nice work blouse, a blouse, and blazer, or any casual shirts for your time off.
2022 is the year to show some skin. Cutouts are popular this year, meaning any way that you can show off some skin uniquely and appropriately is great. There are more risqué versions of this trend, such as with nude-colored bodycon dresses that offer strategic cutouts. If you’re unsure if cutouts are the option for you, you can opt for a plain blouse with cutout shoulders, a v-neckline, or a skirt with a slit in the hem. There are a ton of ways you can use cutouts to your advantage, and not all of them have to be uncomfortable.
Graphic prints are always trending at some point during the year, but it’s never been bold like this before. Geometric shapes in bold, bright colors are all the rage in 2022. This can tie back into nostalgia trends, too. The popular designs from the 70s are back, but with brighter, funkier colors than ever before. Expect large, bold repeating patterns, florals, swirls, and geometry-themed prints.
You can even get abstract with it! There will be a ton of options available in the coming year, so go with the loudest print that speaks to you.
In recent years, pastel colors have dominated women’s clothing. It’s surprising to see bold, bright colors showing up all over social media this year. Instead of subdued limes and lilacs, expect neon pink and vibrant purples. Brighter colors are all the rage going into 2022, so go with the brightest electric hues to create a showstopping look.
Expect to style more subdued hues with bright pops of color. Bright bags, blinding shoes, and other eye-catching splashes will super popular!
It looks like 2022 is going to come roaring into our closets soon! Thankfully, a lot of these trends incorporate items that you probably already have in your closet. Since 2022 is bringing back a lot of trends from the past few years (and even past decades), now might be the time to stock up on bright colors, cutouts, and other staples. We’re sure you’ll find the perfect pieces to meet this year’s fashion goals!
