The world of fashion changes every year, and this spring is no different, with an abundance of trends emerging in the aftermath of Fashion month and in reaction to new collections hitting the highstreets.
Here is our guide to 2022’s Spring fashion trends and the ways you should be emulating them.
Bold, brave and brightly coloured clothes will be a staple of the clothes you see around this spring, as companies continue to jazz up their traditional spring lines with more eccentric colours and daring prints than they normally do.
This focus on vibrant clothing is part of an effort to brighten your life from the inside out, through the garments you choose to wear. Major designers and high street brands alike are trying to focus on a positive and adventurous approach.
This strategy has been well received by customers, and has been backed up by sales. There have been year on year increases in sales of bright garments. Over this spring season, look for a staple item that you normally wear regularly, and buy it in a bright colour!
Under the radar luxury
In great contrast to the bright greens that have been selling like hot cakes, there has also been a focus on reserved and highly functional wardrobe staples that tap into the luxury market, whilst not screaming out for attention.
Within this trend there has been a renewed emphasis on the central elements of your wardrobe, and looking for pieces that fit the bill for a timeless look, whilst still being distinct. If you are trying to lean into this trend of stealthy luxury, look for a distinctive trench coat with a brand label, or a pair of soft silky trousers that are tailored and fitted to your physique.
Spring has Sprung, and Sex Appeal has come with it
Fashion month is never a demure affair, but in the collections for this spring season we saw many empowering outfits that oozed sex appeal. This sex appeal was demonstrated in many forms; with creations formed from revealing sheer fabrics, popular cut-out dresses that flooded the catwalks, dangerously short miniskirts and well tailored body-con pieces.
Not everyone will feel comfortable wearing a tight bodycon dress or a sheer top that reveals all, but you can get a slice of spring sex appeal by wearing items such as this pair of a chic tweed miniskirt and blazer. With a thigh grazing fit, fascinating fastenings and a vibrant green tweed fabric; it is the perfect statement outfit for the British spring.
A White dress for every occasion
After two years of weddings being pushed back, or people delaying getting married due to the pandemic, there have been a flood of wedding invitations being given out and these bridal vibes have stretched to the fashion capitals of the world. White dresses are all the rage right now, some of which lean into the wedding context, others are images of spring purity. Coming in all sorts of styles, you can find a white dress for every occasion. Whether you want something short or long, an outfit for the day or an evening, something fancy for an event or a modest outfit for when you are just at home, pure and demure or sexy and alluring.
So our guidance is to find a white dress that you want to wear, whether it is a party outfit or an easy shirt dress you can put on quickly.
Swimwear on the street
Rather than just being worn to the beach or the swimming pool, at recent fashion shows we have seen swimwear on the catwalk, and not just in a Victoria Secret style show but as a general spring wear trend. Whether styled alone as a bikini top with a contrasting skirt, or worn underneath a skirt and blazer combination.
After a winter where people wish to escape to the sun, wearing items that evoke memories of relaxing in the warmth, it’s possible we will see this trend stretch beyond the streets of Paris and find swimwear paired up with tailored suits for women on the high street in the next few months.
If you want to emulate this catwalk trend, you can combine your favourite bold miniskirt with a well fitting black bikini top to create an alluring ensemble fit for a trip to a festival, or you could buy a matching bikini top and light summery skirt such as this.
