Diamanté embellishments on your clothing and accessories
Diamonds really are a girl’s best friend, and this year brands like Mach & Mach, a recently blogger-approved shoe brand, and Alexander Wang brought this statement to life with the embellishments of diamanté on bags and shoes. While this trend originated specifically with jewellery, we’ll be seeing more subtle sparkling details on accessories and clothing in the coming months.
We know what you’re thinking: Florals for spring? Groundbreaking. While you can’t do spring without incorporating a little nature into your wardrobe, designers like Prabal Gurung, Ulla Johnson and Cinq à Sept proved floral doesn’t have to be cliché. The designers switched things up by harmonizing an edgier color palette with bold floral patterns.
Anything But Mellow Yellows
Bold yellow designs will serve as the light at the end of the cold winter tunnel. Whether you want to go for a monochromatic look as seen on the Christian Siriano and Sergio Hudson runways, or add some other colors into the mix as demonstrated by Frederick Anderson, you’ll look super chic.
While we will be seeing lots of quilted designs this fall, we predict the trend will carry into the spring months. As seen at the Stan presentation and Moschino runway show, quilted jackets will be everywhere, especially with cheeky patchwork designs.
Playful Black Dresses
LBDs and black dresses in general never go out of style! This spring and summer, elevate the classic silhouette with beaded sleeves like Proenza Schouler, pearl-adorned cut-outs like Christian Siriano or chainlink straps as seen on the Bevza runway.
Fringe no longer solely offsets western aesthetics. For the upcoming spring season, fringe will make a play for texture and movement.
Asymmetrical cutouts and simple keyholes certainly had their moment this year, but from the look of our Instagram feeds, 2022 will welcome even more cutouts with pants, dresses, skirts and intricate layers.
Horizontal or vertical, classic stripes have the wind in their sails.
Hemlines have gotten higher—they’ve gone from mini to micro
In the exaggerated silhouette du jour and in both vibrant and classic shades, suiting is the ultimate statement.
The season’s retina-searing colour palette is all about solar shades so bright you’ll need sunglasses. Canary, marigold, pumpkin and amber—this is visual vitamin D.
The tight-fitting suit moves fluidly from day to night, having abandoned its previous sporty spirit for a more streamlined modern style.
The classic beige trench welcomes the unexpected by incorporating bold lines and vibrant materials.
Building on the popularity of cowboy boots this past summer, expect lots of fringe, western belts and leather details during spring and summer 2022. We can’t decide whether this trend gets a ‘yee-haw’ or ‘yee-nah.”’ But just watch us obsess over cowboy boots and fringe dresses in six month’s time thanks to this week’s Bronx and Banco, Proenza Schouler and Willy Chavarria shows.
We are obsessed with these looks from the Frederick Anderson, Bevza and Dundas x Revolve shows. Thankfully for our savings account and closet space concerns, matching sets will continue to reign come spring.
