Fashion is ever evolving, changing, growing, and recycling. There are new trends every few months. Some don’t stick around too long, while some creep their way into your basic wardrobe. Of course, 2022 has also seen a massive shift in fashion. Our trends are now not just about high fashion but also about comfort and care. If you’re curious about what 2022 has seen so far in terms of fashion, read on.
Sweatpants and sweatshirts
Fashion has not always been about comfort. But, in many ways, that’s changing and one of the latest trends that prove it is athleisure. Sweatpants have seen the ultimate glow up, and they’ve gone from homewear to high-fashion launches. You can wear any type of sweats you like. You can shop for baggy and oversized options or even go for monotone fits in different fabrics. If you’re feeling fancy, you can even bag a pair of color-coordinated sweats. In any case, leisurely loungewear is here to stay.
Another fashion trend that has taken over social media and the wardrobes of Gen-Z and millennials is platform shoes. Platform shoes have been around for a very long time and have been a staple across different civilizations and cultures. They were apparently first seen in Greece in 220 B.C. and were also very popular during the 1970s Disco era. Thankfully for us, these fabulous accessories have made a complete comeback and are definitely now a part of a basic wardrobe.
Low-waisted pants were all the rage back in the 2000s. They were a common sight on red carpets and have made a swift comeback this decade. Low-rise pants are not the only ones that have made an early return; low-waisted super miniskirts are also back!
Gone are the days of minimal accessorizing. Now, we have oversized earrings, clunky rings, and of course, chain belts. Chain belts are the perfect accessory to complete a denim-on-denim look or satin-and-denim look. You can wear them around your belly or above your navel.
Over the last few years, oversized blazers have been a common element of corporate workplace wardrobes. But, 2022 has bought about a revolution. This year, we’re seeing microblazers become popular. Microblazers look chic when paired with slim pants and even miniskirts. They give you a leaner and more tailored look and give you more styling options to choose from.
