Every year, fashion trends change often because of the fluctuating preferences of people. One minute they would wear plaid clothing, then next their bodies are clad with denim overalls. Aside from this, celebrities also contribute or become the turning point of a trend. They do this by wearing something they usually do not wear, which surprises their fans and people alike. This, in turn, makes the trend relevant in the fashion scene.
This 2022, the trends have changed again, and it is time for you to keep up! Here are the trending styles that you should add to your wardrobe:
- Y2K Fashion
It is true when people say that fashion is recycling itself because you would see past trends resurfacing in the present. This is the case with Y2K Fashion; all of a sudden people are wearing low-rise pants paired with loud crop tops. From its name, this trend started during the early 2000s, and it became popular because of celebrity music videos on MTV.
The Y2K Fashion died down when 2010 started, but it came back during the peak pandemic breakout in 2020. Here are some outfit samples to give you more understanding of this trend:
- Fuzzy tracksuits
- Asymmetrical tops and dresses
- Flare pants
- Butterfly tops
- Overlaying cardigans
- Sweater vests
- Schoolgirl skirts
- Butterfly clips.
From the looks of it, the Gen Z of society is the one responsible for bringing this trend back. With the use of the famous social media app called TikTok, people in this age category would share their outfits on the platform. One thing led to another, and suddenly, the Y2K Fashion has been successfully resurrected from the grave.
- Chunky everything
Shoes are an important part of an outfit, and sometimes they can be the make or break factor. With that said, people are looking for ways to elevate their look through their footwear. As a result, designers all over the world have come up with chunky sandals, boots and every kind of shoe!
The most common shoe from this category is chunky sneakers. This shoe has a sole that is thicker than most rubber shoes, yet it is unsuitable for running. A pair of these would look good when you are wearing streetwear or anything casual.
Aside from that, loafers have now joined the bandwagon, and they too transformed into something chunky. These pairs would look good when you wear chic skirts, and they will look great if you pair them with a white shirt overlaid by a sweater vest.
- Layering to the nines
Layering is a fashion trend that requires you to wear more than one piece of clothing. This is usually common in cold weather countries, and the weather pushes them to wear a lot of layers to keep their bodies warm.
Nowadays, people have decided to elevate layering by mixing and matching clothing pieces that would look great together. The best part of this trend is that it allows you to broaden your creativity by using all of the items you have in your wardrobe. To give you an idea of how this trend works, here is a great example:
- Underwear: intimate clothing + thin-layered heat warmers + tights
- Midwear: skirt + shirt of your choosing
- Outerwear: Sweater or hoodie + coat + scarf + gloves + socks to keep the feet warm.
You do not have to follow this same guide but take it as a basis. Once you get comfortable with the style, that is when you start experimenting with your entire wardrobe.
- Colour-clashing palette
Are you tired of buying new clothes and creating a lump of mess in your wardrobe? If so, then you should try out the colour-clashing palette trend. This allows you to create colour combinations that people would usually not agree with. The goal here is to wear colours that would make you feel and look good at the same time.
Here is a guide for you when you plan to try this trend:
- Get your favourite piece of clothing from your wardrobe
- If this is a top, select a bottom with a colour that is loud enough to complement your top.
- If this is a bottom, select a top with a colour that would clash with the pants or skirt that you are wearing.
- Once done, select a neutral tone coat to even things out.
- Finish the look with your favourite coloured socks.
- When in doubt, go monochrome
You can never go wrong with the most simple colour combination of black and white. This greatly exudes simplicity and timeless beauty since it can go well with any occasion. Most importantly, the best part of this is that it never gets old, and you can wear the same style over again.
Pairing some linen black shorts with a lace white top is a good outfit to go sipping some tea at Tiffany’s. Additionally, wearing some knee-high platform boots will seal the look and let you transform into your inner dominatrix.
- Bralettes are the new tops
People are becoming more and more confident with their bodies, and they show off their beauty by wearing less fabric. The best way to do this is to put on a fancy bralette with lace gold! This is already enough to achieve the girl boss look, and you can elevate it further by wearing high-waisted trousers and a pair of classic black high heels.
This outfit is great to wear when you are out eating good food at a restaurant with friends or shopping for some new clothes in your favourite designer brand.
- Chains for that extra effect
There are a lot of ways to upgrade your outfit, but the best and most trendy thing you can do is wear layers of chains all over your bed. Do this by wearing a layered necklace or a chain belt to cinch your waist. This trend is a great way to enhance your confidence since it exudes a rebel-like look.
- Bucket hats
Sometimes, all you need is to wear a hat, and that would be the final thing your outfit needs to look good. Usually, bucket hats are the ones that have this kind of effect. In terms of shape, the top is fit to the point it would get the shape of your head, then it will flare out on the ends. Additionally, bucket hats would stop their length right before your eyes, so it gives you more enigmatic points.
This can come in different colours and fabric types, and each one of them will look great with the outfit that you are wearing today. Some people would even get creative with their hats by adding cartoon characters to make them more personalized.
- Oui, une baguette bag, s’il vous plaît
Bringing a big satchel bag to carry everything you need can be convenient. However, it can easily become a hassle for you due to its size and heaviness. If you happen to go out while feeling lazy to bring a big bag, you should settle for wearing a baguette bag. It is a small bag that you can sling on your shoulder, and it can hold your necessities. The best part of this bag is that it will never get in your way! Additionally, it comes in different colours and textures so that you can use them with any of your outfits.
- Workout clothes are what’s hot
Gym rats are so hyped with the idea of wearing their gym wear anywhere they go. This is because various activewear brands are producing different styles of leggings, biker shorts and tops. With that being said, people can be both stylish while working out or going to a party in the club. Above all, wearing workout clothes will keep you comfortable throughout the day.
- Popping your outfit with red
Red is the colour that easily attracts the eye because of its slow and heavy wavelength, as per physics textbooks. With this in mind, you can use it as the accent of your outfit, and it will be the first thing that people will notice. Besides that, you are free to wear an outfit full of red just to make a statement in society!
- Euphoria-like make-up
Euphoria is the hit HBO television series that everyone loves at the moment because of its spicy storyline. Aside from that, the outfits and make-up in this show is god-tier level to the point that all of its fans are recreating the art. This, in turn, has pushed people to experiment more with different bold eyeshadow colours and add glitter to every part of their faces.
