Spring is in the air and with it comes a whole host of new and exciting trends for your wardrobe. After the uncertainties of the last two years, we can’t wait to get all dressed up and looking glam for spring 2022– and the fashion trends for this year certainly don’t disappoint. Sequins, neon lights, and daring hemlines are back with a vengeance as designers channel the after-dark party spirit, as well as the fashions of the late 90s and early 2000s. But there’s also a delicate, pretty vibe with cute crochet, as well as laid back style with voluminous silhouettes. Read on for our top fashion trends for spring 2022.
The cold and dark months of winter leave most of us absolutely bursting to get dressed to the nines and get back out again. Think dazzling sequins, sparkling accessories, clubbing outfits – anything that has the wow factor. There’s the side of glamour which we can easily associate with casino too: guests in ball gowns, table dealers in tuxedos. The association is often to go to indulge in these finer things. However, when you’re at home, you can still access this environment by playing live casino games, getting the experience of being talked to and entertained by a sophisticated and experience table dealer. At-home dinner dates have become common occurrences too, with people and their better halves cooking and dressing up, giving the experience to themselves – posting their ‘fits online to share with friends, which do contain the very styles that would be worn out and about.
Channel your inner teen Britney and Christina because we’re travelling back two decades this year, with the return of Y2K fashion. Think late 90s and early 2000s chic; that means bubble-gum pink with jewel-encrusted denim, cut-off shorts, spiky twisted-up hair styles, crop-tops, and splashes of neon colour. A big key trend in the Y2K look is stacked shoes, so now’s the time to look out your old platforms that have been hiding at the back of your wardrobe for years. Chunky shoes were seen strutting all over the catwalks recently; plus, they’re super comfy and versatile. Add a shimmering of fluorescent eyeshadow and a slick of frosty lipstick to finish off the retro look.
The trend for puff-sleeves isn’t going anywhere soon, as voluminous silhouettes are set to continue into spring 2022. But not only are high-impact sleeves a remaining fixture on the catwalks, the big-volume trend is also lending itself to oversized jackets and untailored shirts. Not only is this trend the epitome of laid-back chic, it’s also comfy and easy to wear. There’s nothing quite as comfortable on those chilly, early spring nights as relaxing in your boyfriend’s big cozy sweater. So, whether you want to rock effortless cool in a borrowed baggy top, or go all high-impact glamour with puff shoulders and sleeves, there’s an oversized look for all occasions.
Make sure your legs are looking their best because the mini skirt is back. Daring and rebellious, the mini is one of the most iconic items of clothing ever and has enjoyed many a comeback since it emerged in the mid-century. Minis look best when worn with confidence, so don’t be afraid to show off your legs. Team with a killer heel for a leg-elongating effect, or wear with cool sneakers for a sporty, effortless look.
A big key trend for spring 2022 is crochet, especially with added fringe. Crochet was all over the catwalks recently, appearing on dresses, cami tops, pant suits, and accessories. The crochet clothing and accessories are either crafted in bright, geometric colours, or in simple neutrals, pastels, or monochrome hues. Delicate and pretty, crochet can be dressed up or down and is the perfect spring alternative to heavy knitwear. Team a cream or white crochet dress with canvas sneakers, loose waves, and an oversized straw bag for a lazy spring day, then dress it up at night with neon or metallic accessories for evening.
Spring 2022 looks set to encompass a wide variety of fashion trends. Although there’s a strong emphasis on dazzling evening wear, there’s still something for more laid-back occasions. Regardless of what’s in fashion though, it’s important that you feel confident in what you wear. Don’t be afraid to experiment with your clothes and go out there and own it.
