Hello, Darlings! Today we are talking Spring Trends For 2022. Trends come and go, and many of these trends may not work with your body type or personal style. But it is fun to be aware of what is out in the marketplace.
Before you go out and buy this season, SHOP YOUR CLOSET! Many of these trends have been trends in the past. I have several of these that I consider classic pieces in my wardrobe.
Spring Trends For 2022
Stripes Are EVERYWHERE
Because of my need for contrast, I like a good stripe. This is a trend I am going to be watching and potentially adding something new to my wardrobe. I am looking for a pure white/black stripe T-shirt this season.
Animal Prints Are Still HOT
Animal prints are almost a classic in the wardrobe. An all-year-long style, you can find them in color or classic neutral colors. My best animal print is the bold black/white zebra. I have added a short zebra print scarf this year.
Gingham For Fresh Youthful Look
Stores such as Talbots and Draper James are going to be full of gingham this season. This particular trend does not work well with my personal style so I don’t have any in my wardrobe. It is a little too “Cute Classic” for me. But if it is a trend you gravitate to, you should have lots to choose from this season.
Polka Dots Are BACK
I really don’t think they ever left. Considered a classic look, you will find lots to choose from this spring. For some reason, I do not wear them well, even if it is high-contrast polka dot. This again goes to personal style. If it doesn’t work for you, you don’t have to wear it, even if it is a hot trend.
Tie Dye Is Still In Style
Tie Dye trend was super hot last summer with big bold colors. This year you will see the trend again, but it will be softer, more muted, beach style.
Crochet For Touch Of Nostagia
When I found this duster I almost broke out in tears. It immediately reminded me of the many quilts my grandmother used to make. For Spring/Summer Crochet is still trending with sweaters, handbags, and totes. You might even find it with additional fringe detailing.
Spring Trend 2022- Return Of Denim Skirts
Denim skirts have been around but this year you are going to be seeing them in a longer midi style, two-toned denim, pencil skirts, and minis with frayed hems. Personally, I don’t think this is a trend I will be trying as the midi length does not look good on me due to my height.
Trends In Denim Jeans
You are going to see several trends in denim jeans this season. One of the is Crafty Jeans, jeans with patches, painted embellishments. This is NOT a trend I will be trying because it draws too much attention to my bottom. Also, low-rise and super flared jeans are making a comeback. (insert sad face)
Dark denim and white denim are still on-trend and if that is on your shopping list you should be able to find a good selection. Skinny jeans are going out and ankle, cropped, kick flared jeans are going to be plentiful. Distressed jeans are still on-trend, mostly frayed hemlines.
Very Peri- Many Shades Of Purple
With Very Peri, a periwinkle purple/blue color being the Pantone color of the year, purple is going to be everywhere. Last year I added several purple pieces to my wardrobe and really loved them.
Hoping To Find Lots Of Fresh Green
Green is trending in home decor and I am hoping to see more of it in fashion. Adding more Green to my wardrobe is high on my shopping list.
SHOP YOUR CLOSET First!
Before you buy anything this season, SHOP YOUR CLOSET. Make a list of any holes you have in your wardrobe. Try on clothes for the fit and start to create outfits that can make the transition into Spring. Take the time to organize your closet so you can easily see what you already have. I still believe we will continue to see inventory issue so being able to quickly grab any item you may need will be key.
I am working on my personal shopping list for Spring. It is not very long at all as I have really worked to pair down my wardrobe and concentrate on only those items that look good on my body type, in my best colors, and work with my personal style.
