The fashion scene in 2022 should be bolder and brighter than ever.
Whether new trends emerge from the runways, magazines or social media pages of influencers, it’s fun to stay up to date on all the latest industry news. However, you’ll never want to look back a few years from now and wonder what the heck you were thinking when you follow that trend.

If you want to stay trendy this coming season, here are six fashion trends to follow in 2022 …
Miniskirt and combat boots
The miniskirt is back, but it’s no longer paired with cropped tops and high heels. Now, the miniskirt is paired with chunky combat boots, oversized coats or blazers, and graphic tees. If you’re not the biggest fan of the mini-trend, don’t be afraid to pair your boots with oversized pants.
Cropped dresses, T-shirts, skirts and even pants are in trend next season. This style is also reminiscent of the 2000s aesthetic, however, designers like Jacquemus and Stella McCartney have added their modern twist to the trend.
If a color has had a big comeback in the last year it has been the color green in all its shades. However, a brightly colored dress may not be everyone’s cup of tea. Instead, try adding a pop of color with a pair of green sunglasses.
The bangs are back
If you’ve thrown away your old fringed leather jacket, you may end up regretting that decision. Fringe is back and in all its glory. Blazers, jackets, capes and coats are pieces that look great with fringes, as they add a layer of texture to any outfit. If you have an old coat, you can use the overlock to make the DIY project and make yourself a completely unique piece.

Over the knee boots
Another trend that is back in fashion is the over the knee boot. While this was in style a few years ago, this time around they are on trend with bright colors and bold prints. Make sure you keep the rest of your accessories as small as possible and let the boots do the talking.
Colored leather gloves
If you find it difficult to integrate color into your wardrobe, this is a great way to start. Brightly colored leather gloves like hot pink, blue or green are a great way to spice up your everyday outfits. If you are looking for inspiration, go to Prada.
It is important to choose your trends wisely. If you’re not convinced, don’t bite the bullet, especially since some trends end faster than they started. Stick to what works best with your personal style and shape.
Most of all you want to look and feel confident in your clothes. Last but not least, have fun with your fashion choices. Life is too short to be boring, so don’t hesitate to express yourself and let your creativity shine.
