Spring loaded: This season’s top fashion trends19.04.2022
1. Sensible sandals
Enjoy a summer ride in comfort with these sandals. Flatform sandals with Velcro fastenings, cushioned foam and Velcro closures are the best.
2. Bold colors
The catwalk was filled with mood-enhancing bright colors, including sweet oranges at Emilia Wickstead, Christian Siriano, Stella McCartney, Roksanda, and hot pinks at Versace. It doesn’t matter what colour you wear, as long as it’s vibrant, there’s no shortage of trends for 2022. It can be worn head-to-toe, or as an accent piece in a neutral outfit.
A fringed skirt or crossbody fringe bag will give your look a more swingy feel. Inspired by Chloe’s multi-tasselled shift dresses, which swung down the runway.
Miuccia Prada’s Miu Miu line was a masterclass on how to refresh your office uniform. We will be wearing swingy pleated skirts and blue shirts, even though we may not be able to change our sweaters into crop tops.
Fashion loves stripes. From Emporio Armani’s vertical to Jil Sanders’ citrus trouser suit, and Tory Burch’s humbug gown, all the way up to Gabbana’s vertical. Roksanda and Peter Petrov chose to wrap around the body diagonally in eye-catching rainbow colours. This is the season to be in line.
6. All-over-logo bags
We’ve moved from minimal decoration (with the exception of a clasp detail) to logomania. The new season will be dominated by the repeat print. Loewe and Coach reimagined the iconic 1970s bags from their archives.
7. Bohemian New
A few clever styling tricks can help you make another summer from your cottagecore blouse or dress, as seen at Isabel Marant and Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini. You can add a fringed jacket or waistcoat, or a bucket cap to your skirts. Mix and match floral separates with metallics, or create ditsy floral combinations.
8. Micro mini
Love it or hate it, this 60s trend is back and it’s set to become the hottest summer trend. For the Mary Quant look, wear it with flats.
9. Super sexy
Julia Fox’s Revenge Dress 2.0 unveil on the LaQuan Smith runway during NYFW has taken the already popular cutaway dress to the next level. Nensi Dojaka, winner of the LVMH prize, launched the trend with her distinctive asymmetric cuts. This summer, less is more.
10. Sharpen your skills
The runways showcased back-to-business tailoring with an interesting twist. It was seen layered over cutaway tops or peek-a-boo bralets, and it mixed functionality with elegance. Max Mara Studios kept it neutral, while JW Anderson & Stella McCartney sported vibrant colours.
