With the days getting longer and warmer (fingers crossed) we're finally able to turn our attention to Spring Summer 2022 fashion trends. We know it's quite possible that you're cozied up on the sofa in a jumper whilst reading this but, rest assured, bright long sunny days are just around the corner.
Now is the perfect time to get clued up on what's to come this season. We're expecting to see lots of 70's inspired outfits, - from oversize shirting to ballooned silhouettes and a continuation of the Bishop sleeve trend, as well as fringed garments. Statement trouser suits, vibrant block colours and, it looks like the popular Noughties trend, the low rise, is making a come back.
1. Statement Sleeves
Statement sleeves have been on-trend for the past few years now and it doesn't look like they're going anywhere, anytime soon. The most recent sleeve trend has been the Bishop sleeve, which is very fitting with the 70's vibe that is very on-trend at the moment. Most commonly spotted on floaty dresses, Bishop sleeves compliment the outfits to which they belong while remaining a standout feature in their own right. The style, which balloons out toward the lower arm before gathering into a feminine cuff at the wrist looks best, we think, in light fabrics.
What's better than a trouser suit? A trouser suit in a statement bold colour. We're seeing oversized '80s workwear-inspired styles trending and looking punchier than ever this Spring/Summer, many of which include padded shoulders, non fitted tailoring, wider trouser legs and eye-catching colour palettes.
I'm sure many of you have cottoned on to this trend. This shade is the colour of the season, it's definitely having it's time to shine as it's cropping up everywhere. Wherever I look this hue has been embraced from influencers to the runways, from high end fashion brands to the high street and it's hard to avoid it, but we are totally here for it and fully embracing the green.
4. Low Rise
The Noughties is making its return with the iconic low-rise bottoms. Now, it goes without saying that under-the-belly-button waistlines aren't to everyone's taste, with many of us swearing never to go back.
