11 Trends to Look Forward to for 2022

It's an interesting moment in fashion: We collectively exist somewhere between at-home loungewear and full-on party mode. That intersection calls for both high-shine and raver looks, as well as comfort-minded oversized silhouettes and athleisure finding its way into evening (hi, catsuits). Next year will be about bold bright bags that indicate a dose of optimism and little skirts and micro jackets that signal we are officially out of hiding. See 11 trends predicts for 2022—and shop them all, of course.

The catsuit is one of the year's most unexpected trends to emerge. But lest you relegate it to runway only (as seen multiple times on Saint Laurent's and at Burberry)—know that everyone from Hailey Bieber to Lizzo has already worn it out in the wild. It's like your favorite yoga one-piece got a sudden after-dark update.

Chain Belts


If you're picking up on a '90s/early aughts vibe overall, you're not wrong. Go all in with a chain belt or belly chain worn around a knit dress or directly above your navel. Designers are all about having a good time in 2022 if you are. Chanel is leading the look.

Micro Blazers


Jackets are becoming about the size of our collective patience for this endless pandemic. Read: very small. Lean into a leaner, more tailored silhouette, as at Proenza Schouler, Miu Miu, and Jacquemus. Paired with everything from slim pants to miniskirts, the micro blazer opens up a whole host of new styling opportunities.

Big Jackets

Tiny blazers not your vibe? Big, boxy jackets aren't going anywhere anytime soon. Executed best in black, they work well in tan and white too. Pair with denim, easy skirts, knit dresses, or coordinating pants—in other words, almost anything.

Shiny Things


Don't hide your light under a barrel, ladies. Labels from Celine to Carolina Herrera and Coperni are embracing high shine. From maxi skirts to minidresses, these looks call for a dance floor moment—or five.

Bright Bags


Bottega Veneta's bags retained up to 90 percent of their value in 2021, according to resale site . That includes babies in Bottega Veneta green and bolder and brighter iterations. The conclusion: Your handbag doesn't need to come in only black, brown, or tan. Embrace the rainbow from labels like The Row and Loewe, and indie brands like By Far.

While the economy doesn't currently support that whole hemline index idea, why not put on a Miu Miu, Prada, Dior, or The Attico mini anyway? Showing a little leg can make anyone feel lighter, more playful, and rich.

Oversized Shirts

A new silhouette seems to have emerged, and it's as light and carefree as we want to be. The equation: a flowing oversized button-down, paired with flowing oversized trousers, buttoned insouciantly in the middle (as seen at Fendi and Peter Do and on Gigi Hadid).

Raver Style


Put on some EDM and a bucket hat (but maybe keep your glow sticks at home), because life is a rave and everyone is invited. Pieces that speak volumes (from color to graphic elements) add up to every day looking a lot more fun.

Low-Rise Pants


Don't let the term low rise trigger you. These are not your Britney Spears thong-revealing jeans (not that our Britney love doesn't run deep). In the current hands of Bottega Veneta, Vetements, and Balenciaga, trousers and denim are loose and sit coolly at the hips, revealing a banded logo underneath or just a hint of midriff.

Bra Tops


Whether office casual is getting very liberal at your current workplace, or you're ready to turn up your suit look for an evening out, a bra top is the best way to infuse a little modernity into your tailored separates. Try it with oversized suiting like Emily Ratajkowski, with a sleek pencil skirt as seen at Michael Kors, or paired with a somber shade à la Jil Sander.

"Work" Shoes


All the current oversized silhouettes, from baggy trousers to raver styles, call for a shoe with a little heft. The chunky loafer or lace-up lends a classic shape with just the right volume to balance the visual weight of your new low-rise trousers or ground your chic new mini.

8 Perfect Summer 2022 Trends to Shop Now

There's so much to do to properly prepare for summer. Reserve a great beach house for at least the month of August. Stock up on books to read surf-side. Switch out all wintry interiors in favor of lighter decor, possibly linen. Open the pool. Close the fireplaces. Take up horseback riding and perhaps pickleball. But topping the list is, inarguably, getting your wardrobe locked. Below, see eight trends to help inform the season ahead—from a new flock of party dresses and Technicolor suiting, to the return of the easy pencil skirt and a new crop of cutouts, to the key accessories to pair with all of it.

Every decade had its reasons for needing some serious time on the dance floor—creating aesthetic distance from hippie culture ('70s), emerging from a major recession ('80s)—but it might be argued that spending more than a year at home might be the worthiest cause for celebration. Enter: your uniform of bold, body-conscious, possibly very short dresses designed for nights on the town, clubs at dawn, and maybe even your neighborhood barbecue. You deserve it.

When it comes to beach days, the look is decidedly minimal, elevated, and netted. In cover-ups, crop tops, and dresses, the look is fishnet inspired and not just a little sexy. Go all in poolside and beyond.

Before you begin to argue that the white tank top is hardly a trend, and rather truly a closet staple, allow us to interject. When Prada puts a triangle logo on a white tank, allowing it to take center stage, and Matthieu Blazy makes his Bottega Veneta debut with a white tank and jeans as the first look out, the white tank is officially having a moment. Invest in a well-made ribbed tank, get on board, and wear it with, well, everything.

Though the universal appeal of a great white, black, or neutral suit has been well documented in recent seasons, there's no arguing that the world is ready for a bit of Technicolor. Start with a suit that stands out in a sea of standard separates in shades ranging from orange to cobalt to lavender.

The shoe of summer is shaping up to be a slide that also provides a little lift. Not quite a full platform, it offers some height and is far from dainty. It radiates ease and unabashed cool. Pair it with everything from linen maxi dresses to slouchy trousers.

The pencil skirt may have remained a workwear staple, but it hasn't seen this level of cool-girl appeal since Gwyneth Paltrow wore one with an open button-down in the '90s film Great Expectations. Anthony Vaccarello went all in with the pencil skirt for Saint Laurent pre-fall, as did man-of-the-moment Glenn Martens at Diesel. The trick is opting for a skirt that's less tailored, more casual, and pairing it with a top that's either fitted, cropped, or, like Gwyn, just a bit undone.

The accessories add all the flourish to summer 2022's story. The main takeaways? The classic clutch is back, ushered in, in part, by The Row and Saint Laurent. The baseball hat remains the moment—just add a logo. Take your beach bag big … and anywhere you want. And get ready for the bangle bracelet again. We can almost already hear you coming.
