10 MustTry Fashion Trends for the Upcoming Season

From lace-up flats to boxy suits, this trend works with a variety of styles. Try a ripped yellow bag to elevate a black mini dress or a simple white button-down for a classic pairing.

Fringe is a bold fashion trend that’s easy to work into your closet. Ease into the look with a pair of statement earrings or a cinching belt that effortlessly juxtaposes feminine with masculine style.

1. Color Blocking

Color blocking is one of the boldest trends to hit the last fashion shows. It involves combining different shades of the same color together, for instance, a pastel pink top with blue denim and sneakers.

To do it right, choose contrasting colors that flatter your complexion. This Fashion Trends is easy enough to try with pieces you already own. For instance, Brandon Maxwell paired pink and green for spring ’22.

2. Duo-Chrome

Gone are the days when clashing colors were considered a fashion faux pas. Acid green and emerald have taken over collections from Bottega Veneta to Ganni. Try a set of pants and a shirt in matching hues or add a bold bag or hat for an extra punch.

Oversized cargo pants are also a winter wardrobe staple that goes well with a blazer and roll-neck combo. Add a pair of boots and a leather coat to give the look an edgy aesthetic.

3. Fringe

Fringe is a fun fashion trend that brings an extra touch of flair to your outfit. Whether a subtle trim on the hem of a tank top or a statement piece dangling from a bag, fringe can take an otherwise blah look to runway-worthy.

Try a short, sassy fringe for a more contemporary look or opt for a long fringe that sweeps the floor to add a more dramatic element to your look.

4. Nap Dress

Nap dresses — aka the summer dress of your dreams, worn by everyone from Princess Beatrice to the stars of Netflix’s hella horny period drama Bridgerton — hit the runway in 2019. These smocked styles, with forgivingly stretchy bodices and puffy sleeves, channel cottagecore (a style aesthetic that celebrates country cuteness, artisanal crafts and a simpler time).

But they’re also incredibly comfortable. Hence the name.

5. Balaclava

Although the balaclava is a classic that dates back to the 1800s, it’s having quite the moment this winter. From Kim Kardashian and Kanye West embracing Demna-steered styles to Gen Z knitwear brands churning out hoods with full face coverage, the accessory has returned to the trend cycle in force.

Beanies had their moment, but it’s now the balaclava’s time to shine. Look to style this snug snood with oversized puffers and tailored tailoring.

6. Pom-Pom Hat

Every winter, wearing a warm woolly hat becomes an unavoidable necessity. But style doesn’t have to be sacrificed if you opt for one with a cute pom-pom attached.

According to historians, bobbles have been on winter hats for much longer than you may think. They also became popular during the Great Depression as a cheap way to dress up your outfit.

7. Co-Ords

Pink hues continued to dominate this season, softer and more pastel in their interpretation. From blush rose to moss green, smock dresses and tops alike were resplendent in the shade.

Bows were also a hit on the runway, spotted at Erdem and Susan Fang. Look for sculptural bow shoulder strap details on dresses to elevate feminine dressing.

Upgrade your tailored wardrobe with a pair of pants and blazer co-ords in the trend. Try this Reiss wool-blend pair in pink with cobalt blue.

8. Racer Jackets

If you’re looking to upgrade your wardrobe this season, look no further than the racer jacket. Seen on everyone from Bella Hadid to Julia Fox and endorsed by Rosalia, this trend takes the gothic biker blazer trend and adds a ’90s-inspired utilitarian feel.

Expect a ’90s cargo pant influence as well, with pockets seen on everything from trousers to blouses. Team this oversized style with jeans for an effortlessly cool everyday ensemble.

9. Skirts

Add a bit of drama to your everyday outfits with fringed skirts and knits. Alternatively, go full-blown flapper with metallic fringing layered on top of bodycon dresses for a party-ready aesthetic.

For a more delicate take on the trend, brands such as Proenza Schouler and Bibhu Mohapatra opted for lace fabric that gives tailoring a feminine touch. Pair with a tucked-in cami for a sexy yet sophisticated look.

10. Leather

Unlike many fashion trends that come and go, leather can travel with you all season long. Whether it’s buttery soft drapey faux or classic dreamy designer silhouettes, leather (and leather-look) skirts can elevate your everyday wardrobe to the next level.

Try pairing a tough leather jacket with a feminine pleated midi skirt or an edgy Moto style with a fitted silk blazer. Pairing hard with soft works, too.
