Trends come and go and trying to stay up to date with what you should be wearing right now can be difficult – that’s why we’ve put together a quick fashion guide to help you navigate the trends of 2022, featuring one of the most basic options, a never out of style jacket, and the best chunky knits for the autumn/winter. Read on to find out the must-have pieces of the year.
As we head into knitwear season, you may be looking for a new style to spruce up your wardrobe. Designers are creating oversized knitwear with layers and patterns, so if you don’t like the idea of being swaddled in warm, cosy material, you may want to give this style a miss! Pair your new knitwear with 90’s style accessories like mom jeans with embroidered patches, wear them over dresses or choose cardigans, sweater vests or roll necks, whichever you prefer. The more over the top, the better!
This may not seem revolutionary, but the white tank top should be at the top of your must-have list this year. That’s why we love it – a basic that you’ll find in wardrobes far and wide catapulted onto the catwalks and featuring in various brands’ shows, this tank top can be paired with almost anything. Pair your tank with a pair of the most on-trend leather trousers or opt for a standout maxi skirt that’s taking the fashion world by storm. You can style a tank in any way that you enjoy most, whether you enjoy a more classic, chic look, or you simply need something to balance out another piece of clothing! Add a plain white tank to your wardrobe to create a sleek, versatile base for a range of outfits.
The must-have jacket
The flight jacket or bomber jacket never goes out of style, and we’ve certainly seen more of them over the last few months. As the weather turns colder, you might not be too keen on sacrificing your style by covering it with a warm jacket – but this piece of outwear allows you to keep warm, shelter from the elements and serve looks at the same time. This autumn has seen the humble flight jacket updated – embellishments and patterns galore, so there’s something to suit your individual style. You could choose a leather flight jacket with cosy fur inside, or an oversized bomber to create a streetwear-style look. You can dress them up or down, whatever the occasion, you can be sure that there’ll be a flight jacket to suit you.
If you’re on the hottest platform of the moment – TikTok – there’s a good chance you’ll have seen many corset styles that you could try, as this historical item makes its return to modern fashion. This year, you’ll see corset styles to suit a range of outfits, whether that’s loungewear, occasion outfits, or even outerwear like jackets. Designers are being inspired by the corset, which has seen them bring back this waist-accentuating design. But don’t worry, they’re not the same as they were in the past, you won’t need someone to help you into them! Pieces of your favourite clothing are simply structured in a way that gives the body the same shape as it would when wearing a corset, with panelling and netting being featured in many designs.
