The fashion trends 2022 has to offer will reinvigorate your wardrobe. From bright colors to artisanal detailing, this season is all about rediscovering the joy clothes and accessories can bring.

With the sun making a more regular appearance, now’s the time to truly embrace the fashion trends for 2022. With something to suit every taste and shape, this season really does have it all. When it comes to new season trends, the trick is to work out which styles you can weave into your existing capsule wardrobe. This helps to refresh your wardrobe essentials, such as your best blazer, and give them a directional feel. With a busy summer ahead, that’s hopefully packed full of occasions and travel, our best loungewear has finally been relegated and we’re excited about the wave of newness that has swept both designer and straight-to-market brands.

Katie Eastwood, stylist ambassador at online personal styling service Stitch Fix, is expecting big things for the trends 2022, “We’re going to be seeing lots of extreme lengths; whether that be maxi or midi, metallics, bold colors, or low waists—in 2022 it’s definitely a case of ‘more is more’.”

Most of the styles you’ll be seeing in stores filter down from the runways and the fashion trends 2022 can only be described as a downpour of maximalist looks.

From London to Paris, whether you’re loving British clothing brands such as Burberry or French clothing brands such as Chanel, the SS22 runways were filled with creative and bright color clothing, something that has been lacking from our closets for the last couple of years. The one question that remains, after dressing down for so long is: do we dare to wear them?

“Remember you don’t have to recreate an exact outfit seen on the models”, says Paula. “The fashion shows are there to inspire you, so take pieces from the looks you like best and weave them into your existing wardrobe subtly at first.”

It is thought this new wave of bold dressing has come about as a result of the pandemic, which designers have used to flex their creative muscles. “Trends often come through as a reaction to these political, social and economic issues.” says Katie, “The bold, extravagant pieces we are seeing across the 2022 runways are most likely a reaction to restraints we’ve all been under as a result of the pandemic.

Forget tan, neutrals, or classic creams, the fashion color trends 2022, is all about color. Models walking for Christian Dior and Versace were seen in top-to-toe brights that really make a statement. “The Queen has been color blocking for years, now it’s time for us all to boost our mood with bold hues,” says woman&home fashion director, Paula Moore. “Start with a bright accessory, such as shoes or a bag, and add this to a look you’re comfortable in.”

From this point, you get more confident, she explains, “You can build up to a whole look easily. Fuchsia pink and Kermit-the-frog green compliment all skin tones, so why not try a suit that will take you from day to night effortlessly.”


Bold shoes and bags: Ease into the trend with color-pop heels or attention-grabbing arm candy. They will instantly brighten up a little black dress or add some interest to your jeans. If you really want to branch out, try clashing the colors as well. Blues and greens or oranges and pinks are great together.

Boxy suits: The key to a good suit is all in the fit. A pair of wide-leg trousers cinch in the waist and skim over thighs—simply tuck in a slim-fit top, add a boxy blazer and you’ll feel empowered in seconds. Take a look at our guide to what color suits me to work out which shade is best for you.

Smock frocks: There is nothing easier than a throw-on-and-go dress. If you can bag a smock-frock in a bright color then you’ve nailed the trend without even trying. All you need is to add boots and you’re good to go.

With its tassels, crochet, and slouchy fits, this trend has a more bohemian feel – just dream of your summer holidays, wearing chunky sandals and a fringed outfit that moves in the gentle sea breeze, and you’ve got the idea. All you need to accessorize is a cocktail.

Fringing is actually easy to wear and very flattering – choose pieces where it falls cleverly over any areas you’re a little self-conscious of, and it will take your look to a new level. Saisangeeth Daswani, head of advisory at trends intelligence agency Stylus, saw this one coming. “With digital taking over our day-to-day lives, we expect that consumers will have a continued desire for touch-and-feel in fashion,” she explains. “Tactile surfaces have become key, offering a new way for consumers to engage with products.”
