While 2021 was all about hot pink, logomania, color blocking, and the ‘hot goth’ trend, 2022 is all about bringing sexy back – and I couldn’t be more excited! It seems that the 90s and 2000s fashion trends are making a comeback, and they’re coming in strong in this year’s fashion trend. As we are easing off the lockdown restrictions, our days ahead in post-pandemic are looking brighter and it’s time to celebrate with these retro-inspired collections of micro-mini skirts, sky-high heels, and low-slung waistlines, all in the name of fashion. Here are some exciting fashion trends to look out for in 2022 that I am personally looking forward to trying this year.
Exciting Fashion Trends To Look Out For In 2022
Oversized Blazer & Jacket
Oozing with style possibilities for 2022, an oversized blazer is something to look forward to. This year, think the bigger the better! These oversized blazers are flexible and have the ability to match any outfit, from sweatpants to dresses. Blazers have evolved from business and workplace staples to casual, daily wear, elevating your style. The classic item has been given a makeover with vibrant colors and sculpted shapes. The oversized blazer has undoubtedly taken over, being both a trend and an investment-worthy of the expenditure, as seen on both the streets and runways of fashion week.
The wide-leg pant trend is still going strong. From the 90s to the early 2000s, people loved bell-bottoms and wide-leg pants because they were comfortable, long-legged, and stylish. It all depends on your style. These bottoms are great to wear for any occasion or season. It is an essential piece of clothing that every woman should own in their wardrobe. It doesn’t matter what color or material pants or trousers are made of; the more loose and baggy they are, the better they will look in 2022. In this post, I am wearing a loose wide-leg pants. I am a huge fan of wide-leg pants as you can see in previous posts here and here.
This year’s “it” shoe style is platform heels. Although they have been around for years, they are expected to be popular this year 2022. Regardless of the kind of platform heels you choose this season, they must be high. These heels are guaranteed to give you added inches to your height. There is also the fact that platform shoes are significantly more comfy than their low-heeled styles…unbelievable right? They may not be a long-lasting trend, but platform shoes and boots can give you a classic 70’s feel, punk, or more refined look depending on the design you choose.
Wondering what skirts are in style and making a return this year? Mini skirts! When it first became trendy in the 1960s and 1970s, this lively and sometimes daring attire signaled a shift in cultural dynamics. Mini skirts are about to take center stage this year. The modern mini has a more structured silhouette, comes in both low and high rises, and is more fitted than flared. A mini skirt is with no doubt the No. 1 most fashionable skirt in 2022.
Very Peri – Pantone Color Of The Year 2022
When it comes to fashion, color is, of course, an important part. It’s time to find out what Pantone thinks will be the color of the year in 2022! It’s called “Very Peri”, it is a color that the famous Color Institute says has the power to make people think outside the box and be more creative. Very Peri is a rich shade of periwinkle. I think of it as a lighter shade of purple or more so like a bold lavender color. With that in mind, here are a few ideas for how you can embrace this year’s color of the year and style it up in your wardrobe. Sweater dresses, skirts, t-shirts, and shorts are all in the mix and your options are almost limitless for you to try.
As this year’s fashion trend brings back nostalgia down memory lane, bright and bold-colored accessories are some of the exciting fashion trends to look out for in 2022. When it comes to this year’s fashion, vibrant, rainbow-colored bags and chain belts are great additions to your wardrobe. And I’ve been looking at all of the beautiful jewelry trends that are taking over this year, as well. Whether you love bright colors and bold statement earrings or cute and seriously fun charms, there’s a piece out there for you.
The fashion trends this year are quite diverse, with a lot of retro-inspired mixed in with pandemic fashion. There are a lot of fashionable color combinations, prints, and textures all mixed together and it is a very interesting mix that I am excited and looking forward to! Will you wear these trends?
