SS22’s clothing looks reflect consumer optimism. Designers are open to experimentation with proportions and new silhouettes. This reflects a fresh outlook on life. Incorporating sportswear and luxury fashion styles is a way to achieve the core principles of comfort, sustainability, and practicality. Hybrid styles combine the best qualities of recycled material with a thoughtful design philosophy.
Trendstop gives our readers a glimpse into the top apparel trends that will shape the Spring Summer 2022 womenswear season.
The Uplifting Cocoon
Apparel is infused with a sense of playfulness as the silhouettes are taken to extremes while incorporating and combining mindsets such as optimism, global outlooks and comfort. With their soft, sultry shapes, they literally lift the wearer, both mentally and physically, with ballooning, feel-good proportions. The fabrics are light, fluid and clean. They are both protective and lightweight.
Recycled Fashion Denim
Designers are always thinking about sustainability and circularity. Recycled fashion denim is a creative and thoughtful solution to giving upcycled and deadstock denim a second chance. Comfort is still the key, but innovative seaming and experimental silhouettes can refresh your classic denim collection. DIY lockdown-inspired floral designs in floral doodles applied to matching denim sets can bring out a sense of humor.
Soft Vintage Sports Co-ords
As the two worlds continue to merge, fashion and sports are becoming more closely connected. The soft coordinated separates are inspired by vintage sportswear and offer a comfortable, easy-to-wear look while still maintaining a high level of style. Soft Vintage Sports Co-ords is a new alternative to formal wear. Its subtle athleticism reflects the casual, informal, and comfort-driven direction consumers want.
