Fashion trends for Spring/ Summer 2022!

 

Fashion Quote (Fashion Goalz)It’s almost that time of year again, I can’t wait for spring and summer.  Happy vibes all around!  With every new season comes new trends, that we need to be prepared for.  This seasons trends are bold, bright and barely there, its all about showing off our shapes and looking amazing.  Theres styles to suit all shapes and sizes, so nobody is going to be left out.  I will start with some colours to look out for first.

Colours 

  • Red – Saffron, bright and daring 
  • Neutral tones – look for modern classics in trousers, blazers, shirts, coats
  • Metallics – its all about silver and gold sheer fabrics
  • White – dresses, skirts, shirts, LBD’s, shorts, suits etc
  • Monochrome – check, gingham, block colours, stripes, polka dot, bold
  • Neon yellow – as bright as it gets, think sunshine, raves, glow sticks
  • Bold brave bright colours – bright colours, luminous, pinks, greens, oranges, blues, reds, purples etc

Some people probably look at those colours and think no chance, I’m not wearing those.  I’m like that with red, I always feel red drains my skin colour so I avoid it unless its a jumper or something basic.  Thats fine, we don’t have to wear all the colours or patterns every season, just whatever we feel comfortable in.  With metallics that’s quite a hard style to wear as an everyday outfit, as you usually associate that with sparkly dresses or Christmas outfits but you will be surprised by some of the new outfits out there when you look.  I must say, I absolutely love the neon tops in the summer, I’m always in bright orange and pinks but this year I want to try some greens and yellows as they look nice and instantly uplift my mood.  This season is all about pushing us out of our comfort zone, think about 70’s retro and flower power.  I would have loved, to have lived in that era.  Know I will discuss some options for clothing, that we will see everywhere.

As you can see there is a massive selection of styles to choose from, I’m quite excited as I love a lot of these styles.  I’m not so sure about the minis, school uniform and puffball styles for myself but they look really nice on other people.  I’m 40 this year so I try and dress smart but casual and for my age, as I don’t want to look like a teenager.  Remember that fashion and style is about what we feel good in, not what’s available.  Just because it’s there doesn’t always mean we should wear it but it’s also good to push ourselves out of our comfort zones sometimes to.  We all have an idea of the types of styles and fits that we like but sometimes it will surprise you if you try something different, it will give you more choices.

I always believe in recycling my clothes as much as possible but I can honestly say I don’t think I have many of these styles in my wardrobe, so it will be nice to go shopping and buy a few key pieces for Spring/ Summer.  I probably have got a few pieces that I can mix and match with new items but I wont spend too much, as fashion doesn’t need to be expensive.  I am constantly giving clothes and shoes to charity and friends so a few treats wont hurt.

My Favourite pieces
My favourite pieces I would say are the exotic/ bohemian styles and the floaty/ maxi dresses, these look good on everyone.  Im petite, so I do struggle with finding the perfect length but I’m sure I will find some somewhere.  It will be nice to try some new styles in summer, instead of my favourite trusted denim cut off shorts.  I have so many pairs in every colour.  I wonder what everyone else always wears, we all have our favourites.  I am also, happy that bulky bags are back in fashion, as I can never fit all my large items in my smaller bags.
I hope you enjoyed reading and good luck putting your Spring/ Summer wardrobe together, remember be bold, bright and daring.
