The Few Trends That Ruled Fashion Month

Just two weeks away from the Paris Fashion Week Spring 2022, one thought remains in our head: Where are all the clothes? This is not a dig at the collections this season, which we believe were the best in a very long time. This was evident by the collaboration between Fendi and Versace and Balmain’s supermodel force. It’s more a reflection of the general sartorial shrinkage, which has been creeping into fashion for several seasons, culminating with a spring line-up so small, there was barely any clothing.

After a summer filled with Dua Lipa in tiny crochet bikinis, and low-rise jeans making an appearance on TikTok’s website, it was clear that designers took notice of the warmer months. Many introduced similar shrunken styles to their spring collections. Ganni and Baum und Pferdgarten used panties as pants at Copenhagen Fashion Week and introduced ab-baring tops. The trend of micro-clothing continued at New York Fashion Week. Maryam Nassir Zdeh wore string bikinis with low rise pants. Saint Sintra gave new meaning to the term miniskirt. Theophilio revived the tunic-as a-dress look. It gets even ‘better’, and it’s much smaller.

Paris, the final push in Fashion Month’s marathon, saw any argument that oversize, swaddled clothing still ruled supreme. This was partly due to Versace and Blumarine, Coperni’s collections that featured smaller pieces than the others.

With plenty of inspiration, it’s time to ask yourself if you are ready for the Great shrinkage. If you are, then shop the small-in size, but mighty-in style pieces. You might be convinced otherwise by the six tiny trends listed below.

Micro Minis

The micro miniskirt is here! Miniskirts have been gone for nearly two decades. They were once adored by Paris Hilton, Beyonce and many other style icons of the early aughts. Be aware: While briefs are not included, they are highly recommended.

Even Smaller Lingerie

Even lingerie, which is already very small in nature, is being examined under microscope. There are no more high-rise bralettes and longline bralettes. Today it’s all about Gstrings and flossy undergarments. They should be visible, whale-tail style.

Light Sweaters

Do you remember when sweaters were big and chunky? The same. It’s time to forget about it. You can expect most knitwear to be reduced in size by the time spring 2022 comes around. This is as demonstrated at Blumarine and Altuzarra, Maryam Nassir Zdeh, and Brandon Maxwell. A tiny cardigan will not keep you warm on a cold night, but it will make you look adorable.

It’s not the tops

The top now is more than a crop top. It is one of the most cropped tops we have ever seen. It’s so cropped that we think it’s not even a top. It’s actually not a top trend, but one of the most prominent barely there trends this season, appearing at Versace and Miu Miu, Bevza and Chanel shows, as well as other Fashion Month shows.

Tunic dresses

We love the idea of wearing a tunic as the dress. As a teenager, we didn’t know what the right length of a dress should be. We were probably not so wrong in wearing “dresses” that had such a poor hemline. Minidresses, such as those shown at Versace and Fendi’s crossover runway shows, are shorter than standard-issue tops.

Super low

Low-rise pants have been in fashion for decades, but they are now officially back and runway-approved. Their return isn’t the worst thing in fashion, at least not for now. After seeing Coperni and Miu Miu, Christopher Esber and other fashion icons, we are now more open to ultra-low rises (we never thought that would be possible).

Daisy Dukes

Jessica Simpson called and said she wanted her Daisy Dukes back. Just kidding. According to Blumarine’s creative director Nicola Brognano there are many short shorts. The cutoffs were paired with Y2K-era butterfly belt buckles, rhinestone belt buckles, and slim-fitting knee high boots.
