Most Popular 31 Fashion Trends of 2022

+ 7 Sustainability Bonuses!

After the weirdness of 2020-2021 fashion trends – with online business meetings and WFH, 2022 brings some refreshing changes you’ll love to hear about.

For the last 60 years or so, the ‘latest’ fashion trends were gathered from runways and fashion magazines.

Nowadays, it is social media influencers and streetwear culture showcasing and dictating what’s cool and fresh in fashion.

To a certain extent, the fashion trends of 2021 didn’t help much – in the sense of inspiring the general public.

But, in contrast to the apocalyptic settings the fashion industry has gone through in 2020, 2021 brought to light fabulous social media-driven digital trends & aesthetic clothing, aiming to lift you up from the depths of quarantine.

And, compared to the neutral looks of 2021, this year showcases fresher and bolder looks, in part driven by a need to come back to ‘normal’ life and in part by the blossoming TikTok fashion culture.




To some extent, the current styles resemble the 90s fashion trends in the sense of mimicking the silhouettes and patterns of those seasons.

However, there’s one big difference; this time, classic styles are reinvented in oversized and loud colors activewear, and streetwear styles.

“The extensive COVID-19 lockdown acted as a catalytic force to the highly creative online communities and internet subcultures, giving birth to previously unseed styles and combinations” 

explains Anna Wintour, Artistic Director of Condé Nast and Vogue’s Global Editorial Director.

And, as the landscape keeps changing and morphing, staying up with the latest fashion trends is paramount in the post-COVID era.

Without further delay, these are the top 31 current fashion trends of 2021-2022.

Stylish, innovative, affordable, and easy to pull off, see how you too can look the par this next year.

Also, check out the top 7 sustainability tips (style-wise) expected to run the fashion stages of 2022.

Crochet Set

Crochet Set new fashion trends 2022
Fashion Trends: Crochet Set (www.thevou.com)

EDITOR’S NOTE:

“Crochet sets are the celebs’ favorite in the summer of 2022. From Lucy Williams to Bettina Looney and Chrissy Rutherford, crochet sets have become the style of choice for beachside holidays and summer staycations.”

AS SEEN AT:

Dolce and Gabbana, Alexander McQueen, Anna Kosturova, Helen Rodel, Katie Jones Knit, Lisa Maree, Alanui, Dion Lee

Crochet sets of the 70s fashion are, arguably, a blowing fashion trend pumped up by Harry Styles and his pop-culture phenomenon “Watermelon Sugar” video.

The clip features Styles and a group of revelers on the beach, eating fruits while clad in an extensive array of brightly colored crochets, vintage-printed swim, and resort wear.

Ever since the launch of the video, the popularity of crochet has continued to rise.

According to the fashion search engine Lyst, searches for crochet clothing rose by 85% since last July, particularly for crochet dresses and crochet sets.

From Lucy Williams to Bettina Looney and Chrissy Rutherford, crochet sets have become the style of choice for beachside holidays and summer staycations.

Hoodies Under Blazers

Hoodie under blazer latest fashion trend 2022
Fashion Trends: Hoodies Under Blazers (www.thevou.com)

EDITOR’S NOTE:

“It works wonders with oversized, boxy blazers, but you can also get thinner hoodies to work more tailored blazers, so you can’t mess it up no matter what.”

AS SEEN AT:

Off White, Gucci, Stussy, Noah NYC, Awake NY, Palace

One of the most popular styles rocking the current fashion trends is the ever-so cozy hoodie – however, worn with a twist.

Wearing a blazer with a hoodie is no longer just another street style cut, but a mainstream look that transcends generations.

Wearing a quarantine staple-piece hoodie under a blazer adds an extra stylistic layer to your overall look.

Look for a slim, tapered hoody — preferably a darker, solid hue, without too much embroidery or graphics.

Pair it with a dark, solid blazer. Slacks or denim are up to you — either will work depending on the occasion.

Women’s Oversized Bomber Jackets

Fashion Trends: Oversized Bomber Jackets (www.thevou.com)

EDITOR’S NOTE:

“Match it with high-rise sox and oversized women’s sneakers, like Air Jordans, for a super-casual London look.”

AS SEEN AT:

Off White, Stussy, Noah NYC, Awake NY, Palace

Bomber jackets should always rest loosely on your hip – unless you’ve opted for a slightly cropped style.

The clingy cuffs shouldn’t go past or above your wrists, no matter the fit.

The cuffs should be relatively tight, so if it hangs over your hand loosely, try a smaller size.

The hues, in this case, are almost always neutral, somehow empowering the underneath attire for an effortlessly chic aesthetic.

Fashion trends: Cropped Cardigans (www.thevou.com)

EDITOR’S NOTE:

“For an extra cute look, mix your cropped cardigans with lounge-ish sweatpants or a midi skirt.”

AS SEEN AT:

Bethany Williams, Gucci, Faith Connexion, Maison Mihara Yasuhiro, Prada

Very popular also in the 90s fashion, nothing defines the contemporary fashion trends quite like the humble cropped cardigan.

A vintage-inspired trend kicked off by high brands like Alessandra Rich and LoveShackFancy, quickly copied by Zara and Forever 21, and other fast fashion brands.

Regardless, if putting together a cute outfit seems like too much to handle right now, a skinny knit with your favorite jeans – from our best jeans for women – is the perfect answer.

Styles range from basic button-ups to embroidered, embellished, or printed knits, so there’s pretty much something for everyone.

You can wear these shrunken knits with slip skirts and a leather jacket, especially if you need another layer of protection.

Of course, jeans and boots are also great accompaniments for a cropped cardigan.

But however you style it, be that Fairy Grunge or e-Girl, make sure you’ll be comfortable all day long.

Casual Trench

Fashion trends: Casual Trench (www.thevou.com)

EDITOR’S NOTE:

“If you’re looking for something different, grab a Nanushka faux leather trench and wear it over a floral dress or a ribbed wool turtleneck with matching heels.”

AS SEEN AT:

Burberry, Nanushka, Valentino, Sportmax, Brunello Cucinelli, Dolce & Gabbana, Magda Butrym, Palmer//Harding

Not a fashion season has passed without the trench putting in an appearance, and the most recent fashion shows were no exception.

With a perennially stylish military cut, the super practical trench coat has been a fashion staple since the First World War.

Also, thanks to the Gabardine fabric, the casual trench is perfect for drizzly days.

The coat of choice for iconic women for decades, the casual trench is brought back to life by Meghan Markle’s recent royal visits.

Great with a cashmere roll neck and Prada tractor-tread boots to create that stylish and yet military-inspired outerwear look.

Fashion trends: Boiler Suit (www.thevou.com)

EDITOR’S NOTE:

“An essential item if you want to look like a legendary model, just make sure you add a matching belt to enhance your curves and a vegan handbag to match it.”

AS SEEN AT:

Off White, Stussy, Noah NYC, Awake NY, Palace

This one-and-done hero piece has cropped up everywhere this year, from the runway to your favorite affordable stores.

It’s easy, it’s cool, and it takes the stress out of picking pants and a shirt – because we all have enough to think about right now.

Traditionally made from heavy canvas or denim, the one-zip wonder was one of many game-changing inventions to come out of the Industrial Revolution.

With men’s overalls, comfort and practicality are both high on the list.

Also, boiler suites are very popular amongst extended sizes, offered by some amazing plus-size fashion and petite clothing brands.

Beloved by celebrities such as Giambattista, the Hadid sisters, Rosie Huntington-Whitely, and Irina Shayk, this versatile all-in-one is your swiftest route to utility chic.

The Leather Jacket

Current fashion trends classic bomber and biker leather jacket
Fashion trends: The Leather Jacket (www.thevou.com)

EDITOR’S NOTE:

“A winner of the 80s fashion styles, a leader of the 90s fashion trends, the leather jacket is a must-have outfit for smart casual dress code, officewear, streetwear, or even dinner dates. In 2021 we saw a failed attempt at launching the oversized leather jacket trend, coup crashed by high-end designers returning in 2022 to clean-cut bomber leather jackets and classic style biker jackets.”

AS SEEN AT:

Dolce & Gabbana, Ermenegildo Zegna, The Jacket Maker, Diesel, Brunello Cucinelli, Tommy Hilfiger, Michael Kors, Acne Studios, Dunhill, Dsquared2

Not a fashion season passes without a leather jacket for women putting in an appearance, and this year is no exception to the rule.

A perennial of most popular fashion trends, the leather jacket sports several variations, reiterations, cuts, styles, and trends.

Yet, after a half-decade of cruelty-free and vegan leather jackets – in various colors and styles, from plus size clothing to workwear – in 2022 we see a return to classic, clean-cut, bomber and biker leather jacket styles.

Power Bohemian Florals

Fantasy Floral current fashion trends 2022
Fashion trends: Power Bohemian Florals (www.thevou.com)

EDITOR’S NOTE:

“Avoid wilting roses and choose twisted fantasy florals. Blend sunny yellows and fresh greens with raging hues of red and gothic black.”

AS SEEN AT:

Marie France Van Damme, Valentino, Aspinal of London, Etro, Bernadette, PDN London, Peony

Almost synonymous with spring, flowers have long represented renewal, beauty, and the feminine side of nature.

The association between floral motifs and natural femininity can be traced through the last one hundred years of fashion.

As the role of women in society (equality, empowerment) changes, so is the general concept of feminine symbols such as flowers in clothing.

2020-2021 were the years of boho styles, led by stores like princess Polly and other similar women’s clothing stores.

However, the current fashion style of 2021-2022 can be described as ‘adding petals to the metal.’

This year, designers are no longer interested in vintage clothing and rose prints.

Instead, florals are taking over Goth clothing brands and other digitally born trends like cottagecore, darker academia, light academia, aesthetic clothing, and e-girl styles.

Editor’s Tip: While hard to come by, metal-boho is a must-have if you want to stay relevant right now.

Puff Sleeves

Puff sleeves current fashion trends 2022
Fashion trends: Puff Sleeves (www.thevou.com)

EDITOR’S NOTE:

“Match it with a scarf to create that fresh look on your grocery store run or occasional (and, safe!) outdoor dinner.”

AS SEEN AT:

Philosophy Di Lorenzo Serafini, Gianluca Capannolo, Kenzo, Alpha Industries, Christopher Kane, Maison Margiela

Most fashion trends begin as just that: TRENDS.

By definition, a trend is a development or change, and as such, we expect fashion trends to morph and take new forms, and even veer off entirely.

However, some trends have staying power, proving to be more than fleeting – and the puff-sleeve style is the perfect example.

The larger-than-life sleeve has been showcased in many variations: the balloon, the Juliet, the leg-of-mutton, and so on.

However, the puff sleeve trend cracked the fashion veneer in 2018, when ’80s references raved the runway.

Fast-forward to 2022, the supersize sleeve is more popular than ever.

With balloon sleeves on sweaters at Fendi, billowing sleeves attached to pleated shirtdresses at McQueen, perfectly puffed gowns at Rodarte, and double-breasted winter coats at JW Anderson.

Color Clashing

Color blocking fashion trends 2022
Fashion trends: Color Clashing (www.thevou.com)

EDITOR’S NOTE:

“Clash pink with yellow, orange with blue, or green with black to create some of the most (and effective) visual effects.”

AS SEEN AT:

Laura Biagiotti, Tod’s, Molly Goddard, Hermes, Fendi, Stella McCartney, and Versace

Revive your classic jackets and romantic ruffles by mixing punch-packing bubblegum pink colors with vivid greens.

Color clashing is a great way to revive your wardrobe and make a fashion statement at no cost at all.

It works by pairing contrasting colors, or colors you wouldn’t usually put together, to create bold focal points.

The secret to pulling it off is sticking to simple shapes – think classic shifts, maxis, pencil skirts – and choosing shades that are the direct opposites on the color wheel.

Fashion trends: Monochrome Matrix (www.thevou.com)

EDITOR’S NOTE:

“Layer a white shirt under a black mini dress, and combine it with monochrome scarves, belts, and other similar accessories.”

AS SEEN AT:

Prada, Dolce and Gabbana, Gabriela Hearst, Simone Rocha, Giambattista Valli, and Balenciaga

The black and white color combo is a no-brainer.

When in doubt, choose black and white as there’s no pairing as classic as a white button-down and black pants.

However, as the current fashion trends of 2022 are showing, it does not mean that if it’s black and white, you can’t experiment.

Whether textural and layered, like Prada’s circle cut-out knits, or classic color-blocking at Louis Vuitton, there’s a monochromatic style trick for everyone – just choose which one.

Sickly Sweets Pastels

Latest Pastel fashion trends 2022
Fashion trends: Sickly Sweets Pastels (www.thevou.com)

EDITOR’S NOTE:

“Amp up this look with a chunky pair of white boots, a blazer or a long jacket, layered necklaces, or a peek-a-boo turtleneck.”

AS SEEN AT:

Stella McCartney, Sophia Webster, WESTERNAFFAIR, Jenny Packham, Olivia Rubin, Prada.

Subvert the saccharine: pastels are a perennial spring favorite, but this year’s styles balance delicate with daring.

Frothy ruffles and sheer tulle add romance to short lengths and make longer styles more risqué.

When everyone else is in loungewear, sherbet lemon chiffon is a radical statement.

Very popular in the past on pajamas and loungewear, contemporary pastel looks will elevate your 1990s barbie girl to a controversial fashion powerhouse that crushes everything on its way.

Yes, matching sets and sweatsuits can still be worn around the house, but the style works best for unconventional social settings.

Tractor Trek-Sole Boots

Tractor trek-sole boots fashion trends
Fashion trends: Tractor Trek-Sole Boots (www.thevou.com)

EDITOR’S NOTE:

“Pair your tractor boots with slouchy sweatpants or leggings if you want to achieve a utilitarian or slant-to-laid-back look.”

AS SEEN AT:

Jil Sander, Rick Owens, Proenza Schouler, Salvatore Ferragamo, Premiata, Acne Studios, Le Silla

Seemingly every designer and retailer from Balenciaga to Zara is taking cues from the humble tractor boot, which had a massive surge in the fall of 2020 and early 2021.

Characterized by an almost comically rounded toe and a thick, rugged sole, the tractor-style boot is among the most wanted fashion trends of this year.

The boots look great with a long dress or with a super-short skirt.

Daggy dad runners, chunky street kicks, even ugly sneaks – call them what you will; this is the modern interpretation of the platform sneaker look that’s owned both runways and street style for the past two years or so.

It is all the chunk but less of the sporty cheek.

Think Doc Martens on steroids, the aesthetic opposite of the stretch neoprene flats and kitten heels seen on Miuccia Prada’s eponymous SS19 catwalk last September.

My fav is Balenciaga’s reinterpretation of Chelsea’s classic and elegant silhouette but with a chunky grooved-rubbed trek sole.

Fashion trends: Chunky Loafers (www.thevou.com)

EDITOR’S NOTE:

“Match your patent leather loafers with a crocodile-effect vegan leather bag to create another dimension of a modern rock’n’roll star.”

AS SEEN AT:

Givenchy, Miu Miu, Alexander McQueen, Gucci, Stuart Weitzman, Gianvito Rossi

Too early for boots, too cold for fancy shoes, and not in the mood for high heels? I’ve got you covered with chunky loafers.

With an overall classic look, these shoes never fail to stand out from the mainstream.

Sneakers and boots were the most popular flat style over the past few years, together with loafers, ballet styles, and babydoll shoes.

However, the current fashion trend puts chunky loafers at the top of the flat style.

In particular, when paired with longer-length socks, for a preppy, ‘schoolcore’ trend.

Check out Prada’s chunky loafers, leading a grunge aesthetic trend that’s only growing right now.

Maxies

Maxies fashion trends for 2021
Fashion trends: Maxies (www.thevou.com)

EDITOR’S NOTE:

“Sneak in that little extra pop, like a bold shoe or hat, to spice up the neutrals.”

AS SEEN AT:

Dolce and Gabbana, Ashish, Halpern, Molly Goddard, Tom Ford, Nina Ricci, and Valentino

The maxi dress style has always been one of the most versatile things a woman wears.

Are they headed out on a summer night? – Throw it on with sandals and go.

Are you going to a wedding? – Dress it up with jewels and heels.

Maxi dress reached its peak of popularity in 2021 thanks to TikTok’s Cottagecore aesthetic trend.

Cottagecore is a new fashion trend that’s led by boho brands like free people or stores like Anthropologie and continues to grow in 2022.

Dubbed by many as ‘blanket dresses’ – as are great while chilling on the couch, the maxi’s of 2022 will be brighter and shinier.

More extensive and bolder is better, as clashing prints mixed with wide tulle make everything seem sunnier.

Some of our favorite influencer and celebrity outfits take advantage of the color blocking trend, and there are so many shades that pair perfectly together.

Vests & Shests

Vest fashion trends of 2021
Fashion trends: Vests (www.thevou.com)

EDITOR’S NOTE:

“Try the contemporary fashion trend of ‘shest’ – vest and a shirt together – for an extra stylistic boost.”

AS SEEN AT:

Brunello Cucinelli, Dolce & Gabbana, Balmain, Miu Miu, Jill Sander, Emilio Pucci, KNWLS

Vests have long held an essential sartorial role both for practical purposes and as part of suiting.

However, vests didn’t become a standard part of womenswear until the 1970s, when they entered the mainstream as casual work attire.

By the late 1990s fashion and early 2000s fashion, it became fashionable for women to wear vests as part of their everyday style.

The rest is history as since then, vests have taken over the runway and the streets.

The iconic vest remains in style in 2022 – just make sure you stay away from the vest-centered ensemble as part of a three-piece suit.

Don’t own a vest? DIY an old sweater by cutting off the sleeves or layering a muscle tee over a long-sleeved shirt to create a similar look.

EDITOR’S NOTE:

“Things can quickly go stylistically wrong with this fashion item, so match it with a high-waisted pant in a similar color palette.”

AS SEEN AT:

Eskandar, Loewe, Lanvin, Dvf Diane Von Furstenberg, Roksanda, Ganni

Unmissable sleeves – with their ruffles, puffs, and frills – are ballooning across the catwalk and the high street, and there’s no sign of the trend deflating.

Stuffed with social and logistical questions, oversized sleeves and shoulders shouldn’t be a viable trend – such as: is it possible to hug those you love while wearing a top that resembles giant armbands?

And yet, the ‘sleevification’ of fashion is in full swing right now.

2021 saw an emergence of voluminous dresses, creating a perfect one-and-done look (especially for video calls).

A trend expected to rock the fashion runways of 2022.

EDITOR’S NOTE:

“Wear the Sash as Obi, tied with a bow, as part of pants play combo, or as a bow at the back to create a cinched waist that makes you look good while walking away.”

AS SEEN AT:

Isabel Sanchis, RED(V), Sara Roka, Forte Forte, Jonathan Simkhai, Zimmermann, Elisabetta Franchi

Far from being purely utilitarian, belts can add that final sartorial touch and complete your look.

The addition of a belt can be the equivalent of adding a period to the end of a sentence.

In 2022, sash belts will be used beyond the bridal landscape – in the past, sash belts were created especially to be worn with bridal dresses.

Next year, sash belts will be a fashion-forward statement piece you can tie around your waist (like a sash) and look like a style-goddess.

Go for a sash belt dress and wear it as advised below.

Bralettes

Bralettes 2022 fashion trend
Fashion trends: Bralettes (www.thevou.com)

EDITOR’S NOTE:

“‘Brallets’ look stunning under a slip dress or a boiler suit with a plunging neckline, so give it a try.”

AS SEEN AT:

Karl Lagerfeld, Laneus, SIR., Emporio Armani, Alanui, Nuè, Seen Users

The main difference between a bra and a bralette is that bralettes are softer, more lightweight, and usually made without wiring.

As a result, bralettes give lighter support than a regular bra.

In the past, this comfortable bra alternative was layered under baggy shirts for an extra print or pop of color.

However, the wire-free style comes in 2022 in all sorts of colors, fabrics, and designs, so yes, you can wear it as a top.

Moreover, you can now wear bralettes under blazers and cardigans, and you do not have to match them with your top layer.

The possibilities are endless: match it with a co-ord set, under a blazer, with denim Bermuda shorts, under a mesh top, a vacation shirt and high-waisted skirt, under a sheer ensemble, and so on.

Fashion Trends: Bucket Hats (www.thevou.com)

EDITOR’S NOTE:

“Denim bucket hats look great with a killer trench coat layered over a matching denim trucker jacket.”

AS SEEN AT:

Craig Green, Loewe, Moncler, Kenzo, Missoni, Heron Preston, A-Cold-Wall

The bucket hat is back, as searches have gone up by 56% since last year (according to Lyst) and a 55% increase in searches on eBay.

While more recently spotted on Billie Eilish, Diplo, and shows of Bode, Kate Spade, and Anna Sui, bucket hats never really went away.

This type of hat is the ideal lockdown wear, great for hiding a headful of curls untouched by the hand of a hairdresser.

It is also a hat that screams “it’s summer!” while giving you a Madeline moment.

The shape – both charming and pretty silly – evokes a smile and a fizz of memories.

This seeming duality has given the hat longevity that somehow transcends trends.

So, without further ado, swap the baseball cap for a very 2022 bucket hat, one of many current fashion trends beloved by Rihanna and Bella Hadid.

Academia Styles

Matching sets fashion trends of 2021 and 2022
Fashion Trends: Academia Styles (www.thevou.com)

EDITOR’S NOTE:

“The most common Academia styles recourse to monochrome blazers, peek-a-boo turtlenecks, chunky boots, and layered necklaces. But, which Academia style are you talking about?…”

AS SEEN AT:

Maison Margiela, Bottega Veneta, Mugler, Gucci, Johanna Ortiz, Lemaire, Versace, Kika Vargas

Academic-infused styles – including dark academia and light academia – got a massive boost in 2020-2021, during the COVID-19 lockdown, and will remain relevant in 2022.

Driven by social media nostalgia for school and fashion, this fashion style emphasizes education, learning, reading, and writing, hence the ‘Academic’ touch.

The style can be split into three substyles: Dark, Light, and Grey Academia.

Each substyle has its own characteristics; for example, Dark Academia draws inspiration from the classic Greek arts, writing, and architecture, deeply infused with Gothic elements and concepts of death.

You can go with the Dark Academia style by choosing heavy knitwear in dark tones, inspired by ancient, Hogwarts-worthy libraries.

Or, Light Academia for a ‘lighter’ twist on its goth-leaning counterpart, and create an aesthetic that carries an air of refreshing positivity.

Hot Goth

Goth latest fashion trends
Fashion Trends: Hot Goth (www.thevou.com)

EDITOR’S NOTE:

“Avoid Halloween comes early or distressed hems and focus on daring cut-outs and sexy fabrics (you are a hot goth, after all).”

AS SEEN AT:

La Perla, Alexander Mcqueen, Haculla, Comme Des Garçons, Jordan, Gucci

Let the icy specter envelop you in its shadowy grasp.

Become a demon of the night, a being born of unholy miasma.

Your very footsteps desecrate the ground under your feet.

You have become a creature of the void, an acolyte of the malevolent.

A blackened aura dims the sunlight around you.

The pious avert their gaze; they secretly wish they could be so bad but look so good.

When we think about alternative fashion, gothic clothing is almost always the first thing to mind.

Part of the early alternative subculture, gothic clothes are a cornerstone of the scene, with ‘the blackest of the black and the darkest of the dark’ at heart.

However, you do not have to be the ‘baddest’ witch in the coven or in love with the prince of darkness to wear hot goth apparel in 2022.

After a boring 2021, you’re entitled to be both decadent and sulky, climbing into a hot gothic slip dress, bringing not drama but a darker style to your daywear outfit.

Candy-colored sweatpants trends 2021 and 2022
Fashion Trends: Y2K Fashion (www.thevou.com)

EDITOR’S NOTE:

“There’s never been a better time to wear candy-colored sweatpants, metallic jackets, and denim on denim.”

AS SEEN AT:

Simone Rocha, Giambattista Valli, Olivie Theyskens, Balenciaga, Noi Kei Ninomiya, Loewe, Paco Rabanne and Marine Serre

Y2K fashion brings back bubblegum pink everything: Metallic jackets, wide-leg denim trousers, bedazzled logos, teeny-tiny bags, denim on denim, and lots of Juicy Couture.

Somehow related to couch clothing (pastel sweatpants and hoodies everywhere), Y2K fashion (in particular 2000s Emo outfits) has made a big comeback in 2021 and will continue in 2022.

Blame it on the idea that, once we felt comfortable going outside again, our commitment to comfort didn’t waver.

For example, Y2K sweatpants are reaching a jeans-like status as almost anything can go with a pair of simple sweats.

The secret to pulling off a Y2K style is not to look frumpy or too formal.

Go for candy-colored sweatpants – the fastest and cheapest way to make you look (and feel) like a fashion icon.

Mesh Shirts

Mesh Tops latest fashion trends of 2022
Fashion Trends: Mesh Shirts (www.thevou.com)

EDITOR’S NOTE:

“Mesh shirts have a super edgy look when layered over a bralette and paired with an oversized leather jacket for a chilly summer night.”

AS SEEN AT:

Pleats Please Issey Miyake, David Koma, Bottega Veneta, Just Cavalli, Amir Slama, Dolce & Gabbana

Mesh tops have taken the fashion world by storm in 2021 and the trend will continue in 2022.

Known as the ‘second-skin’ trend, this style grazes on your body that it might as well be a second layer of skin.

While that may not sound particularly appealing, the number of celebrities rocking mesh shirts – think Marine Serre’s moon-print stretch-jersey top – such as Beyoncé, Adele, Kylie Jenner, and Dua Lipa, is nothing short of stellar.

The fashion trend is a perfect wardrobe go-to, no matter the season.
There are so many ways to fashion sheer blouses, sheer shirts, and underlays.

You can quickly go with our fave mesh long sleeve top & lace bra combo, but there are other ways to combine and wear sheer tops with your wardrobe faves creatively.

Whether you decide to dress it up or down or layer it up for those chilly evenings, second-skin tops will be your best friend this spring and after that.

“Wear your boots with a sweater dress, a blazer dress, or a mini skirt to show them off.”

AS SEEN AT:

Khaite, Isabel Marant, Guidi, Alexander McQueen, AMI Paris, P.A.R.O.S.H.

Swing it back to the ’60s fashion with the classic gogo dancers-inspired item of footwear – white knee-high boots.

Taking its inspiration from the Youth Revolution in the mid-century, this Nancy Sinatra-approved look is a chic way to elevate your outfit.

White knee-high boots are great for a particular reason – they easily match many looks in this or that style and can be worn everywhere, from work to parties.

Wide Leg Pants

Fashion Trends: Wide Leg Pants (www.thevou.com)

EDITOR’S NOTE:

“Wide-leg pants are back in fashion with vengeance. Can wear them slouchy, loose, extra-long, and even baggy, as long as you balance them with a cropped or slim-fitting top.”

AS SEEN AT:

Comme Des Garçons, Dsquared2, Barrie, Natasha Zinko, colville, Off-White, The Attico

For the last ten years or so, if you had asked a woman to wear pair of pants that weren’t skin-tight, she would have rolled her eyes in disgust.

For what seemed like forever, we gave skinny jeans and leggings undivided attention.

However, it looks like 2022 will finally save us from another year of uncomfortably tight jeans for women.

Leg wide pants, also known as baggy or puddle pants, have been on the rise for quite some time now.

Yet, it wasn’t until the post-pandemic wide-leg trousers started popping up on the streets of New York, London, and Paris.

Editor’s Tip: Match your wide-leg pants with cropped tops, or you risk coming across as lazy or disorganized.

EDITOR’S NOTE:

“Shackets look great with most things you’re already wearing, from sweatpants to turtlenecks.”

AS SEEN AT:

Laura Biagiotti, Maison Margiela, Bottega Veneta, Mugler, Gucci, Versace, Kika Vargas

Shakets are my favorite winter outfits!

If you’re new to this trend or spotted it plastered all over your Instagram feed, you may be wondering, ‘what is a shacket?’

A ‘shacket’ is pretty much what the name suggests – stylish outdoor clothing that’s a cross between a shirt and a jacket.

Yep, two of your favorite wardrobe pieces combined into one…how great is that?

Imagine a shirt likened to a jacket made of thicker fabrics, has pockets, and can be worn layered up or on its own as outerwear.

With different fabrics, finishes, and details, brushed plaid shackets are among the current fashion trends that can be worn anywhere at any time.

Heavier than a flannel shirt but not quite as bulky as a full-on coat, they’re perfect if you need to run out.

Fashion Trends: Bubblegum Pink (www.thevou.com)

EDITOR’S NOTE:

“Blend your bubblegum pieces with neutral colors, or you risk looking like a Barbie girl doll.”

AS SEEN AT:

DKNY, Alexander Wang, Paule Ka, BARROW, Christian Dior, Valentino Garavani, Prada, Apparis

The Bubblegum pink color trend was first spotted on the S/S 21 runways and has already entered the wardrobes of the fashion set.

Back in 2017, you couldn’t walk into a shop without seeing millennial pink, well, everywhere.

It was the color to invest in, loved by style celebrities, sticking around until late last year from clothes to homeware.

However, the upcoming season was already signaling a new pink shade in town: bubblegum pink.

Imagine the Hubba Bubba gum wheel you used to get from the local corner shop, as that’s the hue you’re looking for.

Brighter than the soft, millennial color, it’s punchy, bold, and vibrant – precisely what your wardrobe calls for after what feels like a lifetime in loungewear through multiple lockdowns.

It’s a departure from the neutrals commanding our closets for the past few seasons, but it’s a dose of fun that I’m ready to welcome into my wardrobe.

Fashion Trends: Tiger Prints (www.thevou.com)

EDITOR’S NOTE:

“Match tiger print with sustainable fashion denim combo, vegan artsy corset, or even a multi-colored eco-friendly gingham suit.”

AS SEEN AT:

Balmain, Chanel, Chloé, Dolce & Gabbana, Erdem, Molly Goddard, Prada, and Giambattista Valli

Consider tiger print an update on last year’s pervasive leopard print.

This year, tiger stripes are showing up on everything from cozy knit sweaters and boxy overcoats to prim blouses and dresses in case you need a break from your sweatshirts and elastic waists.

Once worn by our parents – and our grandparents before them – tiger print is more relevant than ever.

See Balenciaga’s SS20 show leopard print arrived in coat form, masculine and oversized with poppin’ padded shoulders (see above for those trends that come and go) worn with yellow tights and large earrings.

Fashion Trends: Disco Ball (www.thevou.com)

EDITOR’S NOTE:

“Time to pull out all the lurex, glitter, and metallics you didn’t get a chance to don on New Year’s Eve.”

AS SEEN AT:

Balmain, Burberry, Isabel Marant, Louis Vuitton, Paco Rabanne and Sacai

Whoever said disco was dead has never seen the disco ball fashion style.

The iconic disco ball that was a symbol of 70s fashion has left its mark on more than just movies and dance moves.

If you long for Studio 54 good old days, packed with the quirkiest breed of celebrity, you will love these disco ball fashion features.

A disco ball may not be very versatile, but it looks right at home on everything from shoes to swimsuits. I can feel the disco fever coming on already.

Fittingly, as the temperature climbs, so too does the number of statement silvery styles this season.

The category is mercury rising, with textures in the form of sequins and oversized metallic paillettes, as well as ‘touch me’ ruffles and lurex that shine even brighter when the sun’s out.

Loud Logos

Loud logo fashion trend 2022
Fashion Trends: Loud Logos (www.thevou.com)

EDITOR’S NOTE:

“Don’t stop at one logo and even clash logos – I am talking head-to-toe loud branding.”

AS SEEN AT:

Gucci, Fendi, Dior, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Chloé, and Celine

Logo-mania has again taken over the fashion industry, making a significant return since its last major cycle in the ’90s.

During that era, plastered in logos was beyond hot… until it wasn’t.

Just as strong as the fad’s infiltration into the scene was its dissipation; what once was a mark of cool faded into a land of taboo trends.

But with celebrities like Rihanna already stamping the look and high-fashion brands like Gucci and Fendi reclaiming their place in the mix, the logo craze may have longevity well into the future.

The big, bold, colorful slogan has usurped the slogan shirt – loved by every favorite celebrity.

Chanel kept the club spirit alive with neon sign-style logos, while graffiti graphics ruled the runway at Louis Vuitton.

From baseball caps at Celine to socks at Gucci and top fashion designers pledge allegiance.

7 Emerging Fashion Trends in 2022 – Sustainability First

Sustainable clothing has plaid and plays a massive role in the current fashion trends.

That is because, in creating new aesthetics, designers are increasingly using sustainable and eco-friendly materials that people love to wear and brag about.

Here are the top 7 sustainable fashion trends you’ll have to consider in 2022 – if you want to maintain stylistic relevance.

1/7
Upcycled Fashion Trend

The upcycled clothing trend is transforming the fashion industry from manufacturing to design.

In simple terms, upcycling refers to taking used products and turning them into valuable materials for – in this case, fashion purposes.

The product from such rescued materials has a second life, often priced as a brand new (or even more valued) product.

Upcycling is always possible, even after wearing a garment for a long time, to the point of destruction.

On the one hand, this new design philosophy has inspired young fashion creators such as BODE and Tremblepierre to rethink the garments they create.

On the other hand, upcycled and recycled clothing has changed the way fashion consumers view the clothes they buy and wear.

2/7
Cruelty-Free Fashion

Most people see cruelty-free and veganism as identical; however, this is not the case.

Despite what most vegans believe, some animal products can be produced in cruelty-free ways.

For example, ‘peace silk’ and ‘cruelty-free wool’ are products of animal origin yet, obtained without harming animals.

That is unlike animal leather, where the animals are killed for their skins.

More than that, cruelty-free materials and products are often far more sustainable than their vegan counterparts.

Stella McCartney, Mara Hoffman, and even Allbirds are some of the most loved sustainable clothing brands, using cruelty-free materials in their collections.

And, let’s not forget that cruelty-free materials are natural and thus, do not require special recycling plants.




3/7
Pre-Owned Garments

Collaborative consumption is, for sure, one of the most powerful trends in sustainable fashion right now.

Over the past few years, vintage clothing shops have become the to-go destinations for young conscious fashion lovers.

New generations of fashion buyers are increasingly interested in clothes that no one else can have.

Uniqueness and originality are highly praised by them, and this approach expands even to once-in-a-lifetime events such as getting married.

Markets such as Kilts n Stuff, which emphasizes renting garments for occasions like weddings, are a great example of this fast-growing trend.

Moreover, thrift stores, second-hand shopping, and even renting are excellent alternative ways to help the planet while finding unique clothes.

4/7
Vegan Leather

Vegan leather is loved not only by vegans as it does not require the killing of animals but also by those who care about the planet.

One of the most popular vegan leather materials is Pinatex.

This plant-based leather-like material is made from discarded pineapple leaves.

The material is extremely resistant, reliable, and a fabulous choice for creating sustainable fashion trends.

Innovative vegan leather alternatives are preferred by conscious fashion lovers as it makes them not just look but also feel good, knowing that no animals were harmed for their boots, bags, and jackets.

Also, these leather alternatives present great benefits for the planet by slowing down intensive animal agriculture – known to be a significant source of greenhouse gases.




5/7
Custom-Made (Slow Fashion Trend)

The slow fashion movement is growing popular as one of the most effective sustainable fashion trends.

As a result, custom-made clothing and artisanal fashion are making a return as top alternatives to mass-produced fast fashion.

Research shows that customers are ten times more likely to hold onto a new jacket or dress if it was custom-made for them.

Custom-made clothing, as opposed to mass production, saves raw materials and yields clothing of higher quality, designed to last.

Moreover, today’s consumers have seemingly endless choices of sustainable fashion trends.

Hence, customization is increasingly appealing.

The trend is helped by the development of innovative technologies, such as 3d printing and virtual fashion, which signals a promising future for custom clothing.

Finally, to increase the life span of your clothes, you must keep them organized.

Luckily there are many outfit generator apps in the market right now to help you with that!

6/7
Recycled Apparel (Plastics &Textiles)

The advent of using recycled textiles to create sustainable fashion garments and shoes is driven, so far, by Adidas.

In one historic collaboration, the sportswear giant has partnered with Parley for the Oceans, a non-profit organization fighting to clean the planet’s oceans from plastic.

The duo collects plastic waste from the oceans and turns it into textiles and fabrics used to make new Adidas shoes.

The trend of recycling textiles from plastics keeps the oceans clean and marine life thriving.




7/7
Lab-Made Fashion

Although designers have been using natural materials such as organic cotton, hemp, and bamboo, for ages, recent material innovations have taken the industry to the next level.

One such innovative material is Celloluse, a coconut-based fabric that requires much lesser water and land to be produced.

Similar sustainable materials – with a leather-like structure – are made from kombucha tea, mushrooms, and even kelp.

The realm of innovative materials, created at the intersection of biology with technology, is very new but also very promising at the same time.

Finally, with the help of biology, we’ve started to create the perfect ‘vegan leather‘, not in the field – from plants, but in the lab, from cultured cells.

Vegan and biodegradable (because it is already cut and tanned to the size and color desired by the buyer), these new materials are fully circular and eco-friendly, reducing waste and saving the planet.

  1. Hello Mandy! These 29 current fashion trends and tips are very useful for me as I was looking for new tips on brand information that suits my style and my personality. I too believe in updating with the trends and trying stylish, branded comfortable outfits. After reading your blog, I got more information. Thank you!

  2. The human body is an art form. Fashion is a personal expression since it acts as our second skin. Comfort, color, function, and the texture of fabrics bring emotional connection to a favorite article of clothing. Sometimes it’s a connection to a favorite memory. This is the main reason why we can feel and look good in the right clothes, despite of the trend. You do you.❤❤❤

  3. Not sure if I love the current trends, since everything that has come out over the last several years seems to have been copied from decades past. The 90s’ and Y2K looks just remind me middle school. Really, these clothes look like they came from a Khol’s clearance rack, circa 1999. To be honest, I am pretty bored with fashion now. Also, it is a little aggravating to be asked to pay a lot of money for clothes that you could have snagged from your childhood bedroom closet at your parents’ house. I wish that designers could be more original.

  4. En la actualidad existen todo tipo de estilos mil veces diferentes a los demás, lo que para unos es ropa a la moda para otros no, lo que para unos no combina y luce mal a otras personas les parece que se ve increíble esa es una de las grandes razones de por qué la moda es tan increíble.

  5. Some of the best fashion trends can be only spotted at New York or London fashion weeks. Not sure about Milan or Paris fashion weeks, I think they’re quite outdated now. But yes, I think these are the best places to see the upcoming fashion trends for 2022.

  6. This has to be the best website for London luxury style guide, covering what is on in London and the need to know fashion, beauty, wellness, travel, interiors, arts and culture, food, and drink.

  7. Love following you and learning the best and the latest fashion trends in the world, much earlier than my friends learn about them so I can always be a step ahead. Thank you for the very comprehensive research and excellent examples, it helps a lot!

  8. So many fun trends! I love the power florals and the clashing colors and maxi dresses and wide legged pants. So many fun looks that are all doable. Thanks for the tips!

  9. Lots of websites online like Vogue, Elle, Cosmopolitan are still unable to nail how and why Asians wear the way we wear, let alone the latest fashion trends.

    This is the first article that really understands the Asian mentality when it comes to fashion, brands, and the clothes we wear. Great article, bookmarked to follow up on the latest trends updates

  10. Can you also cover the Top 10 Winter Fashion Trends? Personally, if there’s one thing I can say about this year’s winter fashion trends, it’s that they were created to be mood lifters. Fashion designers reacted fast to the changes our world is facing, sewing samples from leftover fabric and improvising with digital runways. So, will you cover the winter trends, please?

  11. i feel like the current trends are mostly covering a sense of body appreciation, but without the tight or showy clothing. For example the dior cruise line had a lot of silhouette cut, fitting clothing, so that it was loose, but still able to see and appreciate the body underneath it. SO overall, this year is going to be a lot of wearing how much or how little you want, but still bring able to love a body for what it is.

  12. I live in London for a few years now, and fashion is my favourite part of the city. One of the biggest differences I realised is that women in England wear skirts and dresses much more often. Especially in the winter with chunky boots and oversized sweaters. There are some Londoners Youtubers I really love when it comes to fashion trends like Emily Lucy Rajch and Patricia Bright that I recommend.

  13. Do these best fashion styles of 2022 apply to the US and UK only or for Asia and Australia as well? I mean, fashion here in Asia is a bit different at times.

  14. Super nice overview of the upcoming fashion trends in 2022!

    Wonder if these latest fashion trends will ever be affordable for everyone, not just for the fashion elite.

  15. From the resurgence of Y2K style to bold, party-ready looks, these 2022 fashion trends are bringing all the drama to your closet. Love these latest women’s street style fashion trends in the world, collected from the catwalks of London, Paris, New York, and Tokyo fashion weeks.

  16. Love following you and learning the best and the latest fashion trends in the world. Not sure if I love the current trends, since everything that has come out over the last several years seems to have been copied from decades past.

  17. Arguably, this is the best fashion magazine right now.

    I used to Read Elle, Vogue, Allure, but always found the editorial approach wasteful and too personal.

    The VOU does exactly what I need – great content, great fashion suggestions, the latest and the freshest fashion trends, and above all, lots of online stores from where I can buy new clothes, shoes, and bags. Great site, in my bookmarks now!

  18. Lots of fashion bloggers and websites are not even incapable to describe Asian fashion briefly, let solely the latest Asian fashion trends. I have browsed many articles but your article is the first one that comprehends the Asian mentality when it comes to fashion, brands, and the clothes we wear. Great work done by you, I have already bookmarked your article to follow up on the latest trends updates.

  19. I think some of these fashion styles do not suit the Asian style as Asians tend to be more laidback and simplistic in their fashion choices. Asians buy clothes not for the trends but with regards to sustainability and quality. Personally, I shop from Zara as I find the brand very affordable and I feel it caters very well to the latest Asian styles. But that’s just my opinion – and bear in mind, I’ve never been to Asia so take what I say with a pinch of salt 😉

  20. No no no, I hate cropped tops, puffy sleeves, and those HORRIBLE TRACTOR SOLE shoes! What is wrong with women wearing those, anyway??
    Choose floral dresses, maxi’s, trenchcoats, all those are super good. Also, go for neutral colors on most of your stuff, that’s super trendy right now.

  21. Wow! These are so accurate! A lot of emerging trends and massive comebacks. Y2K, Goth, Dark Academia! I think the boldest fashion trend in 2022 is voluminous silhouettes: Oversize shirts. Balloon jeans, puffy sleeves – also my favourite 😀

  22. Si compras ropa que te quede bien y con la que te sientas cómodo podrás sentirte más confiado. Te guste o no la ropa es parte de quien eres, de tu identidad. Tu ropa puede hacerte ver más o menos profesional.

  23. Sometimes I love and sometimes I hate how they change the fashion trends, to suit their pockets. I mean, the leading fashion designers are creating trends and styles just for the sake of bringing something new and fresh, and then those styles and new trends are copied by the fast fashion giants and replicated. One piece of advice I can give is to keep your old clothes. Never put them in the bin because the latest fashion trends become obsolete for a few years and then they all come back. Right now I have a lot of baggy jeans – that went out of fashion for the last five years, with these skinny and super skinny jeans trends that have taken over the catwalks, maybe because of the emergence of androgynous and more feminine styles for men, but I digress – and I see that designers going back to that style again. Of course, they do, they have to sell old stock that they’ve kept, just like me. So yes, that’s my take on the latest fashion trends. Follow them, as you want to know what’s trendy and dress nicely -the vou is an excellent source for showing the latest fashion trends by the way – but feel free to wear old clothes if you have kept them, especially if they match the latest and biggest fashion trends of the year!

  24. Fashion trends? How about vegan fashion trends? A lot of supposed “cruelty-free” or “humane” farms have shown otherwise…some of the most despicable videos I’ve seen and abuses happen on “organic/free-range farms” so it will be the same with all industries…wherever there is an animal used to sell a product there is injustice and cruelty that happens because at that end of the day that animal is not seen as an individual with wants and needs but a dollar sign of limited value and purpose in this world besides what we take from it.

  25. Loving these fashion trends for ladies. I’m in love with the world of fashion. My wife and I have just embarked on a new venture in this realm. Any suggestion from you fashionistas on which one of these could possibly be the biggest fashion trend of 2022? I’d put my money on athleisure/streetwear (Y2K comeback!). Thoughts?

  26. Definitely interesting to see how the pandemic itself has affected fashion, as far as the “I don’t care” attitude goes and the more loose, gender-fluid-fits go. I am excited to see what new designers pop up this decade and if they go back in time to more niche or recherche statements such as edwardian, and where footwear will go as far as the chunky aspect is concerned.

  27. These trends are damn great! I really loved the trend of boiler suits and also recently bought one using a discount code I found on your website. Great blog overall.

  28. Stunning article if you’re after the most important tips for women seeking to wear trendy clothes! Thank you this is such a really good piece of information critical for fashion enthusiasts that want to stay on top of their style. I would also love to see more African trends and styles permeating into the current fashion trends or at least a dedicated page on your magazine about the latest African fashion trends.
    Love and light!

  29. I’m confused about why you would include fast-fashion crochet pieces at the very beginning of the article? Fast-fashion crochet pieces can’t be machine-made as knit can. And then, later in the article, you have the audacity to praise slow fashion. Who do you think hand crochets those sweaters you present, and how much do you think they got paid for them? What happened to sustainability in fashion?

    • I kind of fail to understand your pov here? I personally don’t care about sustainability or climate change. I just want to look good, and this article helps me a lot. It is about the latest trends, not about some other propagandistic bullshit about saving the planet, fast fashion, and veganism activism. I think you’re barking at the wrong tree or confused the magazine.

  30. Can you write an article predicting the best fashion trends of 2023? I would love to be a step ahead if you know what I mean.

  31. I like all the dresses suggested in this article, especially the multicolor one! Trendy, fresh, exactly my kind of style.

  32. How about bomber and biker jackets? Top Gun style? I’ve heard that leather jackets are an emerging clothing trend in 2022, in particular bomber and biker jackets made from leather, real leather. Please advise

  33. It is crazy to see how we always return to old trends, like every 30-40 years or so, but with minor variations. For example, this year we are returning to baggy jeans, after two years of skinny jeans for men. And, as new fashion trends, I see that gym clothes are permeating in the office culture, well, assuming we are back to the office anytime soon. Great article, by the way, love seeing how nicely you’ve complemented the trends with relevant fashion trends pics. Good work!

  34. Love articles like this, covering the latest fashion trends, especially when it is done well and dealing not only why these trends are important and relevant now, but also with high-quality pics and with brands, designers, and their products. The VOU team, you’re my favorite fashion magazine right now!

  35. Loved this article covering the latest fashion trends in 2022, I just wished you guys covered a bit of the fashion trends from the middle east as well because I think there are small stylistic variations. But then again, I never knew who to follow when it comes to the latest fashion trends…Should I look at Tokyo and its streetwear culture? Or, follow London’s designers with their punk, rebellious fashion styles? Or French designers with their polished, classic looks? Or New York designers with their office-wear cuts and styles? Or is it the celebrities who decide what we wear? Because we also have a lot of celebrities here in the middle east that sport unique styles, very popular amongst teenagers in this part of the world. Anyway, enough ramble from me, loved the article and I am looking fwd to many more excellent reads.

  36. Love these trending fashion directions for 2022, this is such an awesome post! Always keeping up with the most fabulous trends, keep it up The VOU, you’re doing such a great job guys!!!

  37. From all of the new fashion trends, I can’t stand the microscopic luxury bags! Can’t even fit a phone in those things!

  38. Are crochet trends back this summer?!? I love them! It’s my go-to festival outfit. Just pair a nice crochet top with ripped jeans shorts – cute & sexy!

  39. I think these trends are quite accurate. I live in NYC and see a lot of young girls & boys in the 90’s and Y2K aesthetic. Lots of spring-summer bright colors and florals, white flared pants with a green or lavender top. I also see a lot of bold patterns and some funky patterns. Still low pony, delicate gold jewelry accents. Lots of babydoll or oversized dresses, that are very airy bigger than a bag dress style. Long and short.
    My favourite is the Reformation style: floral midi dresses, puff sleeves, and delicate feminine looks. Fisherman sandals, block heels, or platforms (like those Steve Madden platform sandals that stretch on top). Thoguh, more avant-garde crowd is wearing lots of tulles, high-volume dresses, and outfits. Short bangs, long hair. Chunky shoes, not just sneakers or sandals but weird sort of bulbous shoes. Lots of black and neon green. Neon is definitely back. This year, I see Less athleisure than last year (at least in NYC). Match sets are still in but with a more formal vibe. Lots of interesting shorts, a-line, and men’s boxer shorts as women’s shorts seem to be very in. Straight-leg jeans are everywhere when it’s cooler, similar profile to shorts.

  40. Love these trending fashion directions for 2022, this is such an awesome post! Always keeping up with the most fabulous trends, keep it up The VOU, you’re doing such a great job guys!!!

I am truly delighted in perusing your article about the latest fashion trends, you helped me finally understand how these current trends are grounded in the past decades of fashion, and how most styles are following on key creations of previous fashion designers like Dior, Chanel, and Lagerfeld. And that takes me to the other amazing articles and fascinating posts you have here, like the best fashion designers ever, and the 70s fashion, 80s fashion, and 90s fashion posts. Excellent work guys, since I ditched my pointlessly opinionated and political VOGUE magazine and moved to The VOU, never looked back. Free content of excellent quality, there is no comparison!

  42. How about we talk about recent fashion trends that we can’t stand? I recently watched a video where a girl was talking about how she’d “been photographed” in a certain T-shirt too many times so she had to toss it. I was like….”Really B? It’s not that you’re a native Indian-American who believes a piece of their soul will be stolen with each picture, it’s a goddamn T-shirt. As long as you own a good couple of shirts, no one is going to give a shit if they see a few of them in heavy rotation. Other than that, I love your article, I think it is great you’re including lots of modern fashion styles for people to learn and wear. Yet, those of you reading my comment, stop being d…s and wear your clothes for more than just an Instagram picture.

  43. Love updating my style as often as possible – I mean as soon as the new season is out. But, I also feel that when it comes to the latest fashion releases and trends, designers are still doing all kinds of “macaroni in a pot”. Anyway, I feel that in 2022 we’ll see short, sheer, and second-skin garments making a sexy comeback.

  46. Love the British casual streetwear style of 2022, by far one of the most wanted and loved by teenagers on TikTok right now

  47. I personally like loud logos because it reminds me of many 90s fashion dresses and outfits. Looking at these “latest” fashion trends, you can see that there’s a cycle and now the 90s fashion is coming back.

  51. What are the latest trends in wigs? Seriously now, it would be great if you can cover the subject – for me and my clients (I run a wigs shop, and your help would be much appreciated)

  52. I am not much of a fashioista myself but this was a very fun read. I follow many celebrities and half of these trends reminds me of their “airport fashion”. I am sure you have seen South Korean celebs Airport Fashion. They look so stunning.
