In a certain yes, and I would say that it has influenced us in two particular ways. First, working from home declined the desire to dress-up, to feel more comfortable and find own „comfy“ style. On the other hand, to deal with soltitude, dressing-up, even more sofisticated than before the close-up, became a way to diminish the soltitude depressions and lack of social life. Dressing-up became a certain control and way of lifting the spirits.
Let us see what 2022 has to offer as the two new trends.
The reigning colors this season seems to be lime green, hot pink, butter yellow and ocean blue but more in sky blue than aqua blue.
Into Lime Green is Vogue, Versace, Valentino, Christian Siriano, Erdem, Dior and even H&M. Dresses, blouses, cutouts, v-neck jumpers, tank tops. Some very shiny and bright lime green, some more delicate in the color. It is certainly flashy.
Same flashy is now Hot Pink, coming more into red shades than purple. Here Versace is leading for sure. But also Giambatista Valli, Dior and David Koma. The Hot Pink is certainly one demanding color. You may find within it trousers, fancy shirts, evening dresses and oversized poplin shirts. Add to this color something in flash white or baby blue and you will be on the top.
Butter yellow, warm and delicate, mixed with warm white presented by Proenza Shouler, Chloe or Jil Sander will make you feel very elegant and outstandingly fresh. Finf in this wonderful Butter yellow collections trouser, blazers, floral or plain dresses. Any combination will make you feel just great with this perfect pastel tone.
Ocean light or dark blue with Stella McCartney, Prada, David Kome, who mixes it elegantly with matt black, Prabal Guring and Vogue propose a style on the edge of neon blue with which you will be looking great in hot summer days.
Next surprising trend is coming from mid 70-ties. MINI skirts (the micro-mini type) are back. You can keep your midi of course, as these are still in some trends, but Mini it is. In this refreshed cute style leading is Prada, Dior with its „teenager look-liek girl“, Miu Miu and Saint Laurent Skirts are combined with high-waisted suits, cut-outs tops or as athleisure-inspired looks.Vogue is all in it.
Statement trouser suits is another surprise in the fashion trends of 2022. Here on the top are padded shoulder from 80-ties and wider trouser legs. Colors are flushy in the palette listed above. Thank goodness the padding is not as excesive as in the 80-ties. I really did not like this trend then.
These are dominating in 2022 practically everywhere in Fashion houses and body places. Cutouts in shoulders, arms, sides, pants, dresses, practically really everywhere. They started last year, but this year they are even bolder and they come in all shapes and sizes.
Sneackers it is a must this year. Same thing with flip-flops. Vogue shows them even with elegant dresses. They are dressed with florals, broidery and fancy laces. You cand stand out adding the colors like Vogue extravagantly proposes.
