The future has never looked so bright! With the help of some of the most creative minds in fashion, each year is sure to bring with it new trends in style.
With so many possibilities ahead, what are some of the hottest fashion trends for 2022? The answer is blowing right in your💃 face—literally! With a predicted increase in humidity, futuristic combinations like sequins and swimwear are only going to become more popular. Lightweight summer materials will be preferred, but that’s not all—expect an even greater demand for convertible clothing that can transition seamlessly from day to night looks. And don’t forget about personalized details like light-up hems and augmented reality accessories.
Here, we explore some of the top trends for 2022:
1. Men’s Fashion will be edgy and sporty.
Not only will men start to embrace the trend of wearing polos instead of button-up shirts, but they’ll also take a liking to slightly more risqué items like cut-off shorts (with what looks like rushed elastic on the sides) and cropped hoodies with zippers on the sleeves. The trendiest styles are always on the extreme ends of fashion—so brace yourself for a bit of weirdness!
2. Swimwear will always be in style during summertime.
Between the popularity of beach vacations and the rise in humidity, urbanites will flock to hip boutique swimwear stores for shells, sunglasses, sundresses, and more. With a variety of new styles expected in 2022 (like zip-on metallic paneling), you can bet on another summertime success for designers!
3. Sequin embellishments will be huge!
Sequins are used to decorate just about everything—even swimsuits! Look forward to more sequined fabrics in the future. With a wide array of different materials ranging from satin and lace to plastic beads, this trend is sure to be big next year.
4. The future of fabrics will be bright, colorful, and lightweight.
As colors become more and more vibrant, the need for light-weight fabrics only becomes greater. We’ve already seen a lot of textiles in the past that are designed to reflect light, including metallic fabrics that glow in the dark. It’s only a matter of time before we see even greater innovations in fabric design!
5. Men will start sporting hems that light up.
Shockingly, clothing is predicted to get even more illuminated by 2022! In addition to clothing with more reflective properties (like sportswear), we’re also likely to see pop colors like pink and orange take center stage for some bold fashion statements.
