The fashion industry is now strongly focused on sustainability. Fashion shows in New York, London, Milan, and Paris all focus on clothing that is sustainable, adaptable, functionally, recycled, and comfortable. As we approach the end of 2022 we will see that much of our focus is on keeping it simple and smart. Classic and sustainable clothes are a great investment. These are the key trends I believe will be the most important for winter 2022, based on different runways.
Y2K Fashion. (Late 1990s and early 2000)
The Y2K fashion trend is one of the most popular fall-winter trends in 2022-23. It includes micro mini skirts with knee-length boots, corsets and bandana tops as well as tank tops and crop tops. Y2K is a popular fashion choice for both young and old. This fashion trend brings back the bubble gum pink, metallic and translucent clothes, wide-legged denim trousers, and many other trendy couture, reminding children of their early teen years.
Fitted garments are timeless. This trend is being emphasized this year. It can be worn as evening wear, office wear, or party wear. This fashion statement is not to be missed. For autumn-winter 2022, the strong trend of skirt suits is tailored three-piece suits. These classic, comfortable and elegantly designed garments are worth investing in.
Layering is another trend that will be a big hit. Layering clothes over clothes is a popular trend on almost every runway. These are the key points to watch out for: Shorts with leggings, leggings, coats over sweaters, jackets on shirts, blazers on jean, blazers on mini dresses, overcoats on mini dresses, layering with sheer tops and turtle necks underneath dresses, dresses over trousers, etc.
Although spring-summer had a hint of catsuits, winter runways showed them in all forms, including leather, knitted, printed, and denim. If you aren’t so comfortable, you can pair a catsuit with a skirt, shorts or overcoat.
Corsetry detailing is another trend that is very evident. There are many styles and materials for corsets. There are many styles to choose from, including long sleeves, strapless, gothic, busters and strapless. Fabrics like satin, fleece and leather, as well as denims, all enhance power, sexuality, and femininity in every way.
This trend will continue to be a major influence in autumn-winter 2022. Monochrome is strong this season, especially if you are wearing everything from top to bottom in one colour. Style everything in the same colour, from your clothes to your accessories to shoes. Your outfit will look more sophisticated if you use different textures in the same color.
This soft, flexible woolen fabric is a hot trend. Designers use it in all forms and colours. Tweed is almost the entire Chanel line. There are many options for Tweed: jackets, skirts and mini dresses, as well as pants, coats and pants.
Leather and Velvet
Leather was the most popular fabric this year. Leather garments came in all forms, from suits and pants sets to leather trousers and leggings to coats and dresses. This material elevates any look. Velvet also saw a resurgence this year. These fabrics are available in black, ruby, and emerald colors for special occasions and evening wear.
Feather , Embellishments , Textures , and Knits
This season’s focus is on texture and embellishments, rather than patterns and prints. To enhance garments, fur and feather are used extensively. Knits are also a must.
You can enhance your look with knee-length boots, platform sneakers, and shoes, gloves, bows, belts, scarves, and hair pins.
