5 Style Trends That You Should Incorporate Into Your Wardrobe In 2022

If you’re the type of person who holds onto your old clothes and desperately hopes that they’ll come back in style, your hope may not be in vain. A lot of 2022’s up-and-coming trends are inspired by past style eras. Each year, it’s a fun game of roulette to see what “the next big thing” is, so if you’re hoping that this is the year to reuse some of your old pieces, then you’ll love these 2022 trends.

1. Crochet and Knit Textures

Sorry in advance to anyone who lives in sweltering hot places, but crochet and knit textures are back to make a statement this year. Luckily, you likely already have some knitwear lying around – during the pandemic, crochet and knitwear sales skyrocketed. This is probably because these materials are comfortable, durable, and relatively inexpensive.

Knitwear is versatile — you can wear it as loungewear or as a way to make yourself look somewhat presentable when you take a quick trip to the grocery store. Crochet and knit textures are all over your favorite pieces this year, from sweater vests to boots to wide-legged pants to crop tops, crochet and knit textures.

2. Preppy Vibes

Preppy clothes are exactly the style that you would imagine an Ivy League student or a prep school kid would wear. We’re talking sweater vests and cable knit pieces just like you’d see in the classic 90s film, Clueless. Dorky prints, vests, and sleeveless knit tops are making a comeback, so if you’ve been holding back on your love of preppy pieces, show it off now!

3. Pearls

It may no longer be the 16th century, but pearls are back and making a splash. If you’re looking to upgrade your accessory game, you’ll find plenty of pretty pearl bands, necklaces, and earrings — along with pearl-adorned belts, shoes, and tops.

4. Denim on Denim

Denim is never truly out of style , the denim-on-denim trend is back! Pair denim blue jean skirts with a denim vest, or pull out your denim jean jacket, and pair it with some denim jeans. If you own denim overalls, pair them with a denim jacket, and watch the compliments roll in.

Even if your blue jean skirts are patched or ripped, that’s all right. So long as you embrace the Frankenstein monster that is denim-on-denim, you’ll be on-trend. Combine your denim-on-denim outfits with whatever (non-denim) pieces you already have — denim works with practically everything. Just make sure that the denim pieces you choose have a stark color contrast!Pleated Skirts

Pleated skirts are here to make a statement in 2022. You might associate pleated skirts with schoolgirls, but you can make them fit a more mature style too. To elevate your pleated skirt game, decide whether you want to dress your skirt up or down, and choose pieces that match the look you’re going for. The good news is that accessorizing a pleated skirt will always be simple!

5. “Statement” Cutouts

You know all about “cold shoulder” shirts, but get ready for cutouts to help you bare more than just your shoulders. Cutouts are a trendy detail that makes pieces truly make a statement. Cutouts also have a seriously sexy vibe, but because cutouts are so popular, you can choose how much (or how little) skin you want to show.

2022’s hottest fashion trends are an eclectic mixture of preppy and sexy pieces, so there’s something for every type of style. Be sure to stock up on on-trend pieces this year for looks that’ll make you stand out!
