Top 5 fashion trends of 2022 Read more
Fashion historian Milana Abieva spoke about the main fashion trends of the new year especially for the online magazine «Shipyards».
The New Year holidays have come to an end: all films have been reviewed, Olivier has been eaten. So it’s time to anxiously wait for the arrival of spring. I propose to spend it with benefit and figure out what fashion trends the new year 2022 has prepared for us.
Bright and saturated shades, which delighted us last summer, are regaining their positions again. Therefore, you have every right to arm yourself with a sweater or cardigan in a rich fuchsia or ripe orange color, and already now provide yourself with a spring mood.
Fashion for juicy shades will definitely stay with us throughout the year. And in spring and summer it will be especially relevant. Bright flowy dresses, pantsuits, crop tops, oversized jackets — any of these versatile wardrobe items made in rich purple, Maygreen or any other bright shade will provide you with a stylish and trendy look.
If you really want to impress everyone with your fashion awareness, then now is the time to opt for not just a bright color, but also an ultra-short length. After all, undeservedly forgotten mini-skirts are back in trend.
This «child of the sixties», which was at the peak of popularity in the nineties, certainly could not go unnoticed today. After all, this decade has become the most important source of inspiration for modern designers. By the way, a miniskirt is a great way to add femininity to a utilitarian winter look.
Style it with jockey boots and a voluminous sweater and don’t forget the most important rule — exclusively with black tight tights. This combination will look appropriate in almost any situation and will allow you to stay on trend, while avoiding any hint of vulgarity.
By the way, from the sixties in the new year there will be not only the length of the mini, but also another long-forgotten trend in the form of a lowered waistline. Until recently, we shudderedly recalled the fashion of the 2000s in full confidence that it would never be able to win back its positions. However, over the past couple of seasons, the low waist has been desperately trying to regain popularity and succeeding. In the new year, trousers and skirts of this style will be more relevant than ever.
However, unlike the fashion of the beginning of the century, modern low-waisted trousers have a predominantly loose silhouette. This nuance must be taken into account when choosing an image for an evening event or a walk around the city.
This model of trousers will look great with an oversized jacket, a laconic turtleneck or any other thin knitted top. However, this fashion trend of the end of the last century is not suitable for everyone.
This trend also has one significant, but quite obvious drawback — such a silhouette looks complimentary on girls with model parameters. Therefore, if you have any doubts, you should still stick to classic fit trousers. Moreover, fortunately, they are still in fashion. This means that it is not necessary to refuse a high waist, although it is fashionable.
After all, everything new is a well-forgotten old. And although the leather jacket-leather jacket did not stay in oblivion for so long, its return can be called truly triumphant. She literally burst into the fashion world and does not stop being almost an indispensable element of a fashionable wardrobe.
The biker jacket, which can rightfully be called one of the key basic items of the modern women’s wardrobe, has returned to the collections of most brands, both youth and luxury. Moreover, there are a great many interpretations on the theme of leather jackets.
For example, brutal oversized leather jackets with metal rivets, worn jackets with the effect of aged leather, feminine leather jackets decorated with ruffles and emphasizing the waist line — in a word, for every taste and color. The versatility of leather jackets has been tested not just for years, but for decades, so you should definitely pay attention to it, because its popularity will definitely not be limited to 2022 alone.
One of the brightest trends of the new year, penetrating almost all current fashion collections, is the fashion for nudity. A micromania that began with crop tops and ultra-petite handbags has taken over the entire fashion community from designers and stylists to their followers.
Models with bare legs and tummies can be seen not only in the shows of young and creative designers, but also in such fashion gurus as Hermes, Dior and Chanel. Not to mention sheer dresses and blouses worn, as you might have guessed, on the naked body.
By the way, the latest trend also originates in the revolutionary sixties and is associated with the name of one of the most influential couturiers of the twentieth century, Yves Saint Laurent. This fashion, of course, is for the most courageous, but if you want to at least partially adapt it for everyday life, then a cropped top or the thinnest knitted blouse will come in handy.
