Mini Skirt Suits

After seasons of maxis and midis, the mini is about to take the stage, but in the form of suiting. Consider this the perfect opportunity to take your matchy-matchy sets of 2021 into 2022 with more tailoring—and a bit more leg.

Statement dressing will take the stage this year, but instead of fussy accoutrements, it’s bold colors that will kick clothing into the realm of “POW!” From the recent runways at Richard Quinn, Proenza Schouler, and Prada, one thing became clear: ROYG-BIV makes for a revelation in celebratory dressing.

This year, rebellion may come in the form of lace. Demure and feminine, delicate embellishment offers seasonal softness to follow the rise in temperatures—and hemlines.

If Emily in Paris is any indication, high octane glamour doesn’t need to stop where the sand meets the sea. On this year’s beach getaway, dress to the nines in intricately detailed swimwear, cover-ups, and accessories, carving out a more is more space in a locale more often dominated by denim cut offs and classic bathing suits.

Homespun

Heritage techniques such as quilting, embroidering, and varying knits have ruled the trend cycle ever since 2020. This romanticization of the everyday—and crafting—continued on the runways, proving once and for all that in fashion, maybe there really is no place like home.

Stripes

Stripes are a perennial favorite, but this year they are getting a major glow-up. Instead of the classic horizontal pattern, new variations of color, width, direction are used to give relaxed cuts and structure.

Structurally Sound

In many of the S/S 2022 collections, it was abundantly clear that that soft silhouettes of the early COVID era have made way for, not a total 180, but rather a juxtaposition of structure and shape. Seen on the runway at Loewe, Alexander McQueen, Richard Quinn, and Tory Burch, the continual thread was the presence of boned corsetry, and elegant structure to enhance the silhouette.

Skin Is In

After seasons of protective layering, it would seem that the era calls for showing some skin. But fear not, the runways aren’t calling for us to bare all. Instead, seductive, sinewy silhouettes that reveal snippets of the midriff are the way to go and have been seen on at shows from Missoni to Christopher Esber, Marni, and even Fendi. The takeaway? Maybe to live la dolce vita, you have to show a little skin. But not too much.
