Are you a sucker for a good trend? Then look no further as I am going to let you in on all the best up and coming trends to keep you turning heads this summer. Whether you’ll be strutting the streets of London or jetting off around the world, there’s something for everyone.
Let’s start with one of the more controversial trends we are seeing hit the streets again: Low Rise Trousers. Every woman who grew up in the early 2000s knows this trend all too well. Those who don’t are in for a treat, low rise anything is only good for one thing and that is: making insecurities heightened. Let’s face it, the majority of us don’t have the ‘ideal’ body type for these super hip-hugging styles. But that’s the good thing
about 2022, we’ve come to terms with the fact all bodies are beautiful. So even though you won’t catch me in these out and about, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t wear them with confidence.
Another hot trend that I believe will stay strong for Spring/Summer 2022 is: Y2K. As seen all over Instagram,
TikTok and every other platform in the world, the nostalgic fashion of our childhoods is back with a vengeance.
Bringing back some questionable fashion choices we used to make, such as velour sweat-suits, ultra baggy denim/cargo trousers and fur-trimmed EVERYTHING, to name a few. One thing I will say, the put together of said outfits seems to be done A LOT better now than when I used to. This trend is here to stay and I love it.
Y2K is essentially the perfect opportunity to dig out the old favourite outfit from your youth you couldn’t part with and rock it again with pride.
On the topic of Y2K, our next trending fashion piece is The Ultra mini skirt. Women all over the world are saying enough is enough when it comes to the stigma of ‘short skirts=easy to get’ and making them a fashion statement again. Now, it’s the shorter the better, especially when paired with a cute crop top and pair of statement chunky boots, throw over a long fur-trimmed jacket and you have the ultimate Y2K look. I personally love this trend. Growing up, I was always told ‘make sure your skirt is touching your knees, you don’t want people talking’, and I think it’s about time people stop oversexualizing a fashion choice. Plus it’s just a super-cute look.
Chunky heels. One of my Favourite trends seen lately is the chunky heels. In a variety of styles and colours, this footwear goes perfectly with any outfit to make a bold statement. My personal favourite are the Versace platform heels that have been trending EVERYWHERE the last few months (You know the ones). Now sadly I don’t have £1000 to spend on them, but I did find some really good dupes online to spice up my wardrobe.
A close second to this are the chunky tight fit boots seen everywhere, a perfect choice to pair with a simple jeans/tshirt combo, your best dress and everything in between.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a spring/summer trends list without the iconic Bold Colours. A trend that comes around every year (with good reason) are bright colours. I mean, the brighter the better, right? What better way to make a statement than showing up in an eye-catching colour? One thing I will say about this trend is to find balance.
There’s a difference between bright and playful and between bright and playful and turning up looking like a rainbow threw up on you. I suggest choosing one prominent colour to pair with a neutral colour, throwing in some statement accessories for an extra pop of colour.
wardrobe than to find pieces that will never go out of style? A lot of influencers are encouraging people to now pick items that are simple and classic, whilst pairing them with something a bit more outrageous, to elevate your style whilst keeping it chic.
perfect to dress up or down, depending on your mood.
mega edgy look.
timeless classic again: White. Perfect for the hot summer days, and can work perfectly on any skin tone, in any style. White clothing (particularly suit pieces at the moment) is always taking the fashion world by storm. So I suggest you run out to fill your wardrobe with these colours ASAP if you want to stay on trend this year.
or some baggy jeans, an oversized shirt, and you’re good to go.
