Although trends come and go, a few essential pieces stick around no matter what the latest fads are. Incorporating these essentials in your wardrobe while giving some personal spins to a fashion trend can make you stand out no matter where you are.
Although many trends will come and go this year, keep reading below for some of the most popular fashion ideas set to take the clothing world by storm.
Cottagecore was incredibly popular during 2021, and it seems that this hype will continue well into 2022. Suppose you’re a fan of nature-themed, cozy, romantic fashion. In that case, cottagecore is one trend you’ll never get enough of, and for good reasons. With spring around the corner, stocking up on cottagecore essentials will let you look trendy, aesthetic, and perfectly chic.
When it comes to cottagecore, there are various key items to nail the look. Polka dot prints are supremely popular, as are floral-themed items. Although you can wear cottagecore themed pants and blouses, dresses remain, by far, the most popular option. And if you’re a plus-sized woman, there are plenty of dresses to flaunt your curves. Flowy, flattering dresses can help you accentuate the best points of your body and look stunning as you get on board this quaint trend. Cottagecore plus size dresses come in a range of colors and prints, and you can easily wear them on any occasion.
The previous years have been about holding ourselves back and prioritizing safety and health over fashion. Much of the trends reflected this sentiment, with neutrals, loungewear, and other easily wearable trends taking the spotlight. 2022, however, is all about letting go and expressing yourself without holding back.
It’s the year of bright, vivid jewel tones. When we say vivid colors will be in trend, we don’t just mean adding a brightly colored bag or jewelry. Instead, one of the trendiest outfits you can rock this season is head-to-toe color. Whether it’s a suit, a dress, or pants with a blouse, keep them all in one, bright, eye-catching tone to make a lasting statement. The best thing about these bright hues is that they flatter all skin tones effortlessly. If you’re looking to make a loud, colorful statement for a day or night look, there’s no better trend than this.
Undoubtedly, the latter half of 2021 had been all about the early 2000s, and that popularity has extended to 2022 as well. From Lizzie McGuire’s style sense to fans gushing over Paris Hilton’s wedding, there’s no doubt that Y2K is the biggest fashion trend of this year.
There are several ways to get onboard this classic trend. From tiny prints, cheetah print, wide belts, low-rise jeans, psychedelic colors, and safari suits, there are myriad ways you can hop on board this trend. One of the chicest outfits to rock can be a classic pair of low-rise flared pants paired with a glittery crop top and heels for a night out. When going Y2K, it’s important to remember that moderation is not your best friend. Go all out and put together a look that’s truly memorable and lets you live out your 2000s dreams.
Suppose bright tones or pastel cottagecore isn’t up your alley. In that case, modern-day goth trends are something you’ll appreciate if you’re looking for something edgier when it comes to fashion. Modern-day goth takes a step back from the conservative, flouncy dresses and frills that come with traditional goth attire.
Instead, modern-day goth takes a sultrier turn and opts for sexy, body-hugging fabrics such as latex and leather for an incredibly unique look. Dark, moody hues take center stage with this trend, and deep maroons, magentas, and royal blues can look spectacular. Skull prints, spiked jeans, and metallic details can give a darker, edgier vibe if you want to go for a more casual look.
As is already evident, 2022 isn’t the year of holding back when it comes to fashion. This year, one of the most fun trends is sparkly, rhinestone-encrusted, party-themed clothing. If you had fun dressing up for new year’s eve, this is a trend you’ll enjoy immensely.
Think slip dresses and halter neck camisoles in rhinestone-encrusted fabric or bejeweled bags, shoes, and sparkly, shiny jewelry. Pair your look with sleek hair, dewy, romantic makeup, and a classic scent to keep the trend minimal.
When it comes to fashion, the most crucial tip to remember is to express yourself. These are some of the most popular trends you can expect going into the new year and can help you make a statement no matter what you wear. Whether you like an edgier look, sparkles, or want to enjoy a 2000s throwback, there’s something on this list for everyone.
