The Fashion Trends of Summer 2022: Your Guide

The warm weather is swiftly approaching, and prepping your summer wardrobe is arguably half of the fun. Whether you’re beach bound or plan to have a grand soirée (or two) on your rooftop, there’s likely a summer 2022 trend for all of your fun warm-weather plans. Light fabrics, subdued skin, and fun color combinations are just a few that we’re swooning over. Ahead, browse our picks for the clothes that will help you get the most out of your short (but oh so sweet!) summertime. 

Mellow Yellow

Brighten your day with a mood-boosting yellow hue. Start with a slinky dress or go all out in a monochromatic look, à la Jil Sander’s button-down top with trousers. If complete saturation is not your forte, use the bold color as a jumping-off point. It’s the perfect accompaniment for slightly muted tones like earthy taupes and pastels, like lilac.

Summer Suiting

Sophistication without any stuffiness? Yes, all of the way. Thanks to lighter color and fabric options, the summer season’s abundance of suits won’t weigh you down. If head-to-toe suiting is not your style, break up the look with sleek separates, like a white blazer and jeans or cream trousers with a breezy tee.

Great Sport

You don’t have to play the field to look the part. Tracksuits, biker shorts, and polo shirts fit in on the streets but can lend a new take for beach and vacation wear. Pair your sporty separates with your favorite sneaker, or give your look a touch of femininity alongside slide sandals and a clutch.

Cut-Out Crazed

There’s nothing new about peek-a-boo on the runways. For Summer ’22, the trend has been amplified. From cutesy cut-out dresses at Valentino to eye-catching separates at Versace, skin is totally in.

Connect the Dots

Though there’s been a case for basics in recent seasons, we can’t deny the fun that comes with a bold polka-dot print. Try a dotted top peeking out under a blazer, or go for the total look in an all-over polka-dot dress.
