The resounding return of the noughties, current platform sandals, impeccable knitted suits and the most fashionable tiger print: we have compiled the most detailed guide to trends that will drive everyone crazy very soon.
Giambattista Valli, Balmain, Dolce & Gabbana, Blumarine, Etro
Fashion is officially back. After a year and a half of the pandemic, we all miss the old way of life. And therefore, the past fashion weeks caused a special stir among the public (perhaps, fashion weeks have not received so much attention for a long time). Designers keep themselves in good shape and are happy to present something completely new and unusual, which will definitely please the audience who missed unusual outfits and a bright and colorful dress code. In addition to the already familiar zero and knitted suits, attractive catsuits, mini skirts, sequins, as well as (which is especially unexpected) classic office outfits, which we carefully avoided before the pandemic, come to the fore. So that you don’t get confused in all the main fashion trends, we suggest you get acquainted with the list of the hottest trends of the spring-summer season, which everyone will definitely hunt for.
Acne Studios, Blumarine, Coperni, Etro
Generation Z liked the Zero ones, who did not have time to experience all the most unexpected and crazy trends of this era on their own experience and are happy to wear tops with butterflies and rhinestones, jeans with a low waist and dresses with flounces made of translucent materials now. One of the main trendsetters of the new season has become the Blumarine brand, which dedicates far from the first collection to zero. In addition, we advise you to pay attention to micro-skirts with a low fit from Miu Miu and colorful images from the Versace and Fendi collaboration.
Stella McCartney, Burberry, Lanvin, Saint Laurent
Catsuits (or tight-fitting jumpsuits) are officially recognized as one of the most relevant uniforms of the new season. Making images with them is easier than ever: paired with sneakers and an oversize jacket, you will get the perfect outfit for every day. And in an ensemble with pumps, black glasses and large gold jewelry – an impeccable evening outfit that will collect a lot of compliments.
Brandon Maxwell, Chanel, Coach, Dolce & Gabbana
None of the seasons will be complete without crop tops, which we have learned to wear perfectly even in the office wardrobe. This season, designers are introducing a new variation of the trend — bikini tops. For stylish looks, the top from your favorite swimsuit is quite suitable. If you want to replenish your wardrobe with a novelty, pay attention to classic models with long ties or bright options strewn with sequins.
Badgley Mischka, David Koma, Atlein, Koché
Our longing for parties was filled with pleasure by designers in the new season. In spring and summer, we will be showered with sequins from head to toe and wear them not only for a special occasion, but also every day. Combine sparkling trousers studded with iridescent sequins with an oversize jacket from the office wardrobe. Or complement the eye-blinding mini-skirt with a classic white shirt — all your favorite wardrobe items will be used.
Acne Studios, Chanel, Isabel Marant, Lacoste
Another important zero mark is breeches. If last summer we experimented with bermudas with might and main, now tight-fitting options that we wore 20 years ago are coming into fashion. If you don’t like trousers of bright shades, look for a denim model that will get along well with sandals with minimalistic ties or trending platforms.
Alaïa, Chanel, Coperni, Burberry
The mesh will become in your image, rather, an actual addition than a leading wardrobe item, but it will definitely be a multifunctional thing that will be useful both in the city and during the holidays. On the beach, wear a long semi-transparent dress with a basic swimsuit, and in the city combine it with a crop top and classic trousers or leggings.
Richard Quinn, Lanvin
The most important identification mark of a trending shoe model is a massive (if not gigantic) platform. On the catwalks, brands offered a lot of different options – from classic Richard Quinn boots with a gathered boot to colorful Versace sandals, which are guaranteed to be sold-out. Buy a model that will be comfortable for you, but better — the brightest and juiciest shades.
Jil Sander, Dolce & Gabbana, Proenza Schouler, Kenneth Ize
After the fading glory of animal prints, we have already missed all possible animalistic colors. However, in the new season, the tiger print has another important function. 2022 is the year of the tiger according to the Chinese horoscope, and such worship of the totem animal in the new collections may well be an ironic reference to the symbol of the year. Whether it’s true or not, it doesn’t matter. Stars and fashion influencers adore this print for the fact that it is not necessary to choose bright and accentuated things for it — basic jeans and a laconic T-shirt are enough, which will allow the tiger thing to play the first roles in the image.
New office style
Dior, Peter Do, Toga, Miu Miu
At first glance, the return of the standard office uniform may raise questions — why should we put on suits, sheath dresses and shirts again, if many of us have long switched to a remote format of work. However, this is the main answer to why office outfits are now so popular. During the pandemic, we managed to miss the business uniform, so now we are happy to wear it not only on weekdays, but also on special occasions.
Alberta Ferretti, Balmain, Victor Glemaud, Burberry
Cutouts, which for the second year in all its glory is leading the list of trends, remains with us this season. Such love for this trend is quite understandable: cutouts in the most unexpected places look piquant, but in combination with laconic styles — not at all defiant or vulgar. If you want to look for a classic model, make a choice in favor of laconic floor-length dresses made of knitwear. If you are ready for more daring experiments, take a closer look at the unusual Nensi Dojaka bodysuit or Christian Siriano jumpsuit — you will definitely not go unnoticed in such outfits).
Bevza, Lanvin, Balmain, No. 21
If you are not impressed by the zero trend, we advise you to compromise and try at least a low waist — another mark of the craziest and kitschy era). If in previous seasons this trend inspired celebrities more, now designers have massively begun to sew trousers, skirts and jeans with a waist below the “norm”. However, in the new season, the concept of norm will not exist — your landing may fall so low that it will slightly open the elastic band from your underpants (and no one will blame you for this).
Stockings and tights
Atlein, David Koma, Miu Miu, Yuhan Wang
In the new season, hosiery is used not as a way to keep warm in the cold, but as a stylish accessory. The most important principle is to choose the brightest and most contrasting models that, at first glance, stand out from the image. If you prefer a classic wardrobe, look for laconic gray and black models and wear them with preppy-style looks, like at the Miu Miu show.
Courrèges, Etro, Max Mara, Lanvin
After a long reign of midi length, we are gradually moving away from the golden mean in favor of bold and colorful mini-skirts, the length of which now reaches an extreme height. In the new season, there are no prejudices: be sure that such models are suitable for girls with any shapes, so feel free to go shopping for a bright option with a print and combine it with laconic wardrobe items or contrasting things, as at the Versace show.
Alaïa, Ann Demeulemeester, Chanel, Atlein
The main antagonist of trendy mini-skirts is long floor-length models. Such options always look feminine and elegant. The most current models are skirts of laconic shades with a low waist (so combine two trends in one at once). If you don’t want to take risks yet, look for a light flowing dress in the style of minimalism — an ideal option for summer.
Balenciaga, Acne Studios, Atlein, Courrèges
The tired green is replaced by another shade, which has already been sold-out. The younger brother of the current “electric blue” may well adapt not only to the everyday wardrobe, but also to the evening dress code. We focus on the Courrèges, Stella McCartney and Acne Studios shows and dress up in this fashionable shade from head to toe right now.
Badgley Mischka, Fendi, Blumarine, Carolina Herrera
Pale pink takes pride of place in the trend palette of the season. The triumphant return of this color was already observed last summer and it is not at all against if this universal shade continues to stay with us for another year. In the new season, wear it in total bows, as at the shows of Blumarine, No. 21 and Fendi – the outfit will look complete, and at the same time you will spend a minimum of time on creating an image.
Dior, Saint Laurent, Shang Xia, Tory Burch
Color-blocking is one of the main labels of the 2010s. After the triumph of the noughties, the return of ten-year-old trends is logical, so we advise you to look closely at the era that has recently ended. The combination of different color blocks comes back to us in the simplest manifestation — wear two or three bright shades and forget about additional accessories so as not to overload the image.
Acne Studios, Chanel, Coperni, Dsquared2
Last winter and summer, we were happy to wear knickers (or knitted underpants) at home, combining them with a suitable crop top. Now designers advise you to relax a little and wear underwear from a swimsuit on the way out. In addition, this trend gets along well with another trend – transparent things. Together, this pair will make a perfect tandem.
Knitting and crocheting
Alberta Ferretti, Emilio Pucci, Eckhaus Latta, Chloé
Knitwear has long lost any connection with the winter season and a warm wardrobe and gets along well with summer trends. Paying attention to crop tops and flared trousers made of light and thin knitwear, which should be complemented with massive platform sandals and a bag with fringe.
Acne Studios, Dior, Blumarine, Alexander McQueen
Sunny color often appears in spring and summer collections, but this season designers advise to turn to its most delicate shade — diluted lemon. This goes well with achromats and gets along well with bright and colorful colors, so we advise you to put aside the tired Bottega Green and make a choice in favor of a color that has not yet had time to bother us.
