Before every new year, websites, magazines, editorials, and other sites get flooded with the topics that cover predictions for the new trends that might cover the globe in the coming year. But for the last two years, the pandemic had us lying into our couches, embracing the pandemic-gifted sweatpants. Well, we can say that no matter how much the designers tried, the only fashion we followed through the last two years was the sweatpants, jumpers, styled with a high bun and a snacks packet held like a branded handbag (yes, it’s pure pandemic sarcasm!). But 2022 just hit with new hopes and ideas as designers are taking an optimistic approach to fashion. This year’s wardrobe’s going to be a refreshing blend of nostalgic looks and elevated basics that will lift us out of our comfy sweats. Ishine365 is going to discuss it in this blog.
To help with the revival of your wardrobes and let the expectations be known, we researched through the opinions of a few style experts about their top fashion trends for 2022. You can look forward to pleated maxi skirts exploding with solid as well as joyful colors, clean-cut collegiate styles like baggy shirts or jumpers, and glistening pearls and beads reminding you that your world is an oyster, making the hallway in your office your runway! So let’s talk about the new trends.
Denim will rule!
Denim has always been an essential part of your styling, whether you want to give a casual look or a party look. But this year, denim-on-denim will be rocking! A denim jacket on denim pants gives a monochromatic vibe. The modern shades of denim are smoother and less washed. The liking towards denim increased during the Fall’21 but now the trend has got more popular.
Knits and Crochets
Knitwear became the top-ranked shopping fabric amidst the pandemic as you could wear it in your lounge and while running some quick errands. These require minimal effort. 2022 is trending to go beyond basic sweaters in favor of crochet sets and styles, like ankle-long dresses, and crop tops work with wide-legged pants. Knit sweaters are so versatile, making the garments, cozier, luxurious, and glamorous. You can pair them with boots and a belt for street-style looks or glam it up with heels and a blazer for the evening.
Whether it’s strategically placed along the waist of a blazer or along the arms of a bodysuit, small peeps of skin are drawing big attention, beyond the cut-out dresses you’ve seen in the recent past. Cutouts are a great way to make an outfit unique and unexpected. These are available with a variety of prints and textures. You can pair them with a duster and boots, or baggy low-rise pants. A cut-out top, with skinny pants and heels, can boost your office look.
Famous fold, giving off school uniform vibe is returning. But with more playful and colorful pleats taking on a more grown-up look in 2022. These are available as miniskirts and elegant maxis. Pair your pleats with a blouse or sweater and sneakers or flat boots for the day, and heels for an evening look. Alternatively, top them off with a denim or leather jacket, paired with a sneaker, for rockstar status.
