2021 is almost over so now we’re here with a hopeful heart to jumpstart 2022 with a brief fashion forecast that will prepare you to be in the vogue as a stylish woman post-COVID-19.
After the drab 2021 fashion downer which led us all to live in our sweat pants and cuddly animal slippers overstaying in our oversized Tees and jammies, here’s a quick whiff of the fragrant fashion possibilities for 2022.
It’s all about revivals
Welcome back some fashion staples of the ’80s and ’90s breathing a breath of fresh to the 90’s low-rise spring/summer works of Balmain, Fendi and Versace, the Boho chics, and the puffed sleeves, and even the 90’s hot hit tracksuit. However, what comes as a fashionable surprise are the padded shoulder pads sooooo popular in the ’80s. They are the shoulder pads that bring Jun Encarnacion’s and Ate V’s shoulder pads to shame. They are now called the “boyfriend jackets” and it’s coming a-blazing in 2022 via brands like Balmain and Victoria Beckham. But 2022 takes it to another level with the padded muscle T so better tone up those arms ladies.
It’s all about pops of colour
Whether it’s something to break monotony like touches of blue or what Vogue calls candy colours for 2022 or sorbet pastel colours, it brings a refreshingly cool look to the 2022 fashion palette!
It’s all about accessorizing
Find accent pieces, fun elements, and exciting finds that will either complement or simply become the centerpiece of your wardrobe. Spring/summer 2021 brings to the fashion plates the fab yellow bag the pumps up the interest factor in any ensemble. Scarves on the head will be a big thing too to hide all those bad hair days and protect you from the sun. And masks? Oh well… they are now the most fashionable protective gear necessary to fight the elements – new fashion for the new normal. But wait! Another blast from the past is coming and it’s the fringing on the bags.. Is it long? Will it reach the ground? Who cares! As long as it moves as you strut through the busy streets of social distancing!
