Style Forward Trends in 2022

Style Forward Trends in 2022

With all things 2022 on their minds, who's ready to delve into the next wave of fashion milestones that are likely to define the future year? Rather than taking a wide picture, we focus on a few key trends that debuted on the spring/summer 2022 runways and forecast that they'll be seen everywhere.

We look to the ramps to assess overarching trends every season, but if you think about it, the characterizing elements of cool Style at the moment can be traced back to a handful of different looks, be it was an article of clothing, a novel styling ploy, color combination, or a general feeling that was evoked. So, before you go shopping around, here are the Pearland ensemble trends to look out for in 2022.

Laurel Canyon Kids

The runways acted as a fitting tribute to color-wonderful bohemians of a bygone era, from whirling, psychedelic designs at Gabriela Hearst and Givenchy to brilliant, sunset-hued knitwear at Isabel Marant and Paco Rabanne. But, lest you mistake this for a literal flashback to retro, pay attention to the unique shapes, dimensions, and weaving techniques that make these designs unavoidably contemporary.

Catsuit Frenzy

The catsuit more than compensates for its lack of ability to conceal secrets in sheer novelty and fluidity of movement. All-in-ones like the ones seen at Victor Glemaud and Roberto Cavalli seemed like a whole new mode of dressing and slaying with your best attributes, whether they were covered in glitters like Burberry's, full-on blackouts like Balenciaga's, or a garden variety floral like that of Collina Strada.

Bride Moods

Even if saying "I do" isn't on your 2022 to-do list, there'll be plenty of reasons to show up and flaunt your all-white ensemble from your favorite boutique in Pearland. On the ramps of Givenchy, McQueen, Vuitton, and others, wispy dresses made beautiful and grand entrances without the need for "Pachelbel's Canon."

Ab is Fab

Perhaps it's the result of the virtual exercises era, but there's no doubting designers' desire to flaunt the abs as a fashion statement. From Miu Miu's Y2K schoolgirl prep to Max Mara and Moschino's vivid '60s brights and Versace's glamorous '80s allusions, the only question remaining is: why conceal your tummy when you can flaunt it?

Be Ready to Get Swayed

This season is defined in part by the best party outfits. And nothing quite strikes the dance floor like a little fringe work(oops, Raging '20s). Rodarte, Dries Van Noten, Ferragamo, and Proenza Schouler all used ASMR-soundtracked motion to great effect in their dresses. You won't be able to hear it above the DJ.

Business School Drop-outs

Suiting is designed to blend with blouses and bikini tops, according to Dolce & Gabbana, LaQuan Smith, Michael Kors, and Fendi. Maybe it's because we've been away from our desks for so long that designers thought that when we returned, things needed to appear a little distinct, dare we say, classier? Whether these suits and bras are designed for a council meeting or a night out on the town, they seldom fail to make a statement.
