5 Winter Fashion Trend Predictions

10

Winter is around the corner and it’s time to jump in and update our wardrobes for this new season. Cold nights and snow-covered roads have never stopped us from being in the latest fashion, and season after season, new collections and designs make a strong appearance on the stage. But before taking our cards and going to the stores, let’s consider the trends that might blow up in the following months.

1. Bomber Jackets

Beginning with the safest and most obvious answer, jackets are a mandatory piece in our wardrobe during cold seasons. Of course, we’re going to see a bunch of them, but that doesn’t mean we can’t style them. A smart-casual choice that you can play with and go from a modest style to an extravagant one. On the runways, designers like Prada, Raf Simmons, and Elie Saab played with different textures, designs, and colors. Bomber jackets are here to stay.

2. Bold Colors

Usually, a dark and duller range of colors dominates the winter seasons. However, this year looks different from what we’re used to it. On the runways, we could appreciate vivid and brighter colors like no other year such as hot pink, violet, red, acid green, and aquamarine creating a new tendency.

3. Maxi skirts

The 90s are back. We saw it at the beginning of the year and now they’re here again. After the domination of miniskirts on the runways during the spring and summer, we’re transitioning into a long length just perfect for the coldest months. Designers such as The Row and Altuzarra show us how to wear them for 2022, and now the maxi length with slimmer cut silhouettes are everywhere.

4. Highlight the waist

Along with the 90s, the 2000s fashion is back stronger than ever. The Y2K fashion is here and the love for corseting is not leaving. For the cold season, we still are going to be focusing on our waist but now we’re layering. The influence of the corsets on the runways followed by the Gen Z hype for the trend led the designers to incorporate this silhouette.

5. Leather

Leather jackets, pants, and dresses stood out on the runways with a biker style. As seen with Alexander McQueen, leather is in for this season. Not to mention how comfortable and versatile it can be, a piece of leather can make us look more elegant which is just perfect for our winter looks.

Fall & Winter Fashion Trends For Moms In 2022

The insulting message is that once women become mothers, they become uninterested in clothes.

Some people think the words mom and fashion don't go together. Those people are wrong, though. Moms used to have a certain style of dressing, that is a fact. "You're a mom, you can't wear that!" And other such thoughts were pushed by society.

Moms these days have redefined their fashion sense. They dress based on how they feel, and it has nothing to do with the kind of mother they are. Their "mom style" is just their style.

Classic Mom Staples

Moms tend to shop for clothes based on the age of their children. Newborns, toddlers, kids, pre-teens, and teenagers will all require you to have different types of clothing. With a newborn moms may need tops allowing them to comfortably breastfeed, or something they don't care about to get spit up on. Toddlers are much more active. Teens, well, it really doesn't matter.

MOMS VIDEO OF THE DAY

Still, given that all moms have different fashion "needs" there are some styles that just adapt to them all. According to Vogue classic staples for every mom include:

Classic white tee: Cute classic tees in various colors or stripes go with everything.

The Complete Mom Look

The Sydney Morning Herald mentions how society insults women after they have babies. The insulting message is that once women become mothers, they become uninterested in clothes. They don't dress like they used to because they suddenly have no need for the things they might have cared about before children.

The bottom line is mothers are strong forces of nature. They can dress in whatever they feel comfortable in, and they do. Some moms may not keep up with the latest trends, and that's ok. As long as a mom feels good, she will look good.
