These are the top fashion trends predicted for 2022

Mini skirts, low-rise jeans and “double denim” are among the fashion trends expected to take by storm in 2022.

The 90s look caught fire in 2021, according to the annual ASOS Trends Report, and will continue to set the style over the next 12 months.

The demand for 90s-inspired clothing – baggy jeans, cargo pants and bright, bold colors – will also continue, which has increased in 2021.

The report also showed that party heels sell out at a rate of one pair every 13 seconds and highlighted a huge popularity of rockets, with over 446,000 pairs sold, while sage green was the preferred color for bridesmaids’ dresses.

A “back to office” boom was also noted as the second half of the year saw a 30% increase in black pants sales.

And the halter neck with off the shoulders is set to become a fashion staple in 2022, following a 37.437 percent increase in searches for the item on ASOS Marketplace.

In a separate ASOS survey of 2,000 adults, 40% of young people between the ages of 18 and 35 said they spent more on clothing in 2021 than in 2020.

While 40% also said they made a fashion or beauty purchase to celebrate the loosening of the lockdown in July.

Buyers are ready for the Boxing Day sales

And it seems shoppers are looking forward to putting their new looks together, with 67 percent of young people between 18 and 35 planning to hit Boxing Day sales, spending an average of £ 119 each.

Generation Z and Millennials are the biggest bargain hunters, with three in five (67%) saying they spend on sale this year and jeans (45%), coats (36%) and sneakers (36%) ranks at the top of their wish list.

A quarter (24%) of 18-35 year-olds say they will wear oversized, baggy clothing in 2022 and a fifth (20%) will choose large, bold colors.

This is a continuation from 2021, where oversized styles accounted for 60% of men’s jersey jerseys sales and there was a 135% increase in the number of women’s flared shoes sold.

Over 446,000 pairs of rockets were sold on ASOS in 2021.

2021 saw a boom in the bridal and wedding industry

The bridal and wedding industry was huge in 2021 – after a series of lockdowns and canceled weddings – with customers purchasing over 1.5 million bridal and bridesmaids dresses, featuring the long-sleeved Iris maxi wedding dress which was the number one choice for brides.

The bride and groom and male guests were well dressed, with sales of over 100,000 full suits and demand for formal shoes increased by 80%.

The Love Island effect worked too: after winner Millie Court was seen in a tie-dye set, she sold out in a week.

But she was given a run for her money by Sex Education’s Jackson Marchetti, which triggered 34,000 college jacket sales during the fall / winter season.

Love Island Effect: Former ASOSer Millie Court’s Style Edit launched in December 2021.

ASOS commercial design and visual director Vanessa Spence said, “The trends of the 90s are still very popular with fashionistas, especially the 20s, who haven’t had a chance to experiment with flares and crop tops. the last time.

“We’ll also see a revival of 2000s trends next year, so expect low-rise jeans, double denim and mini skirts to be featured in a lot of changes.

“If you need inspiration after experiencing the lockdown in soft colors, bright pop colors have been seen all over the runways in the last few shows, so they’re going to be huge in 2022.”
