For spring 2022, designers brought fun and optimistic fashion to the runways. Spring is where joyful, mood-boosting fashion lies, and after the long winter months and an even longer pandemic, the season offers up a chance to peel off the layers and inject some dopamine dressing into your wardrobe.
On the runways, we got everything from highlighter shades at Valentino to micro skirts at Miu Miu to barely there “naked” pieces from Nensi Dojaka, who continues to reign as the queen of all things skimpy. Meanwhile, both Blumarine and Versace left no question that the Y2K reboot has arrived. In another sense, this feeling of optimism about where fashion is headed is changing the way we shop as well. There’s an uptick in demand for understated luxury items and cool, everyday pieces that we’ll have in our closets forever with brands like Jil Sander and Peter Do perfecting low-key investment staples, albeit in modern proportions.
Here, we’re highlighting the nine biggest trends of the season. To investigate our top S/S 22 trends further, we enlisted some of the most trusted fashion insiders to weigh in on what is in store. No matter how you slice it, spring 2022 will be a great season for shopping. No sweatsuits, nothing dull. The vibe shift has arrived. Ready for the newness that lies ahead?
