Unless you are a Hollywood movie star or ridiculously wealthy, you probably can’t afford to wear your clothes only once. Even royalty and Kim Kardashian recycle their outfits from time to time! However, this doesn’t mean you can’t keep up with the fashion trends. The fashion crowd may be hard to please, and trends may be changing yearly, but when you shop smart, you will surely find ways to mix and match your pieces of clothing to create new looks and dominate the street style. Moreover, some trends are so beloved by the public that they insist on staying relevant for more than one season. Here are some 2021 fashion trends that will still be hot in 2022. We promise!
Hoodies and blazers – a match made…on the street
2021 was the year of stylish yet affordable looks with a touch of genius. And what better representative for this trend than the hoody under blazer style? Cool, practical, fun, and so easy to pull off, the combination is practically indestructible. No fashion critic can deny its charm and personality. Even your favorite celebrities couldn’t stay away. Just take a look at Hailey Bieber or Kendall Jenner! Wear your cozy hoodie under a slim blazer, preferably without graphics, or, if you are daring enough, opt for an oversized hoodie. Pair the mix with skinny jeans, and you’ll be trending in 2022!
Cut-outs made the cut in 2022
Cut-outs were big in 2021, and it seems the trend will continue to be a hit in 2022. So, keep your asymmetrical cut-out tops and sexy midi dresses because you'll need them as soon as the sun shines bright and the birds start singing again. Wear your cut-out top with a pair of jeans – skinny! Or choose a leather skirt for a “roar” look. Want to try something new? Mix your casual pieces with evening wear by throwing in denim in any shape or size. Get ready to embrace those sexy slices of fabric and wear them with grace. Moreover, 2022 is determined to invite us to be more daring with ovary cut-outs and hole punched clothes. Try them all! See what fits best, assume your personal style, and take over the fashion world.
Oversized bomber jackets for casual elegance
Comfortable and sexy, oversized bomber jackets are the new black in fashion. They go well with everything as long as they rest nonchalantly at your hip. This is the ideal size if you want to achieve perfection! Also, make sure the clingy cuffs stay above your wrists and are relatively tight. Choose neutral colors for a touch of class and infinite mixing and matching possibilities. You can wear your oversized bomber jacket with a pair of ripped jeans and booties in bold colors, leggings, and sneakers, or with a knit mini dress for casual sexiness. It is pretty difficult to bomb your outfit with an oversized bomber jacket but, of course, anything is possible if you put your mind to it!
The clash of the prints – the sequel
2021 was the year when mixing and matching took fashion to new heights and reinvented styles. 2022 will be the much-awaited sequel, and the clash of prints will continue to inspire and delight. You can mix stripes with snakeskin and geometric patterns with multicolor prints. Everything goes! For extra sophistication and originality, try out African prints and mix them as your heart desires. Aya Morrison has reinvented the traditional African prints and brought them into contemporaneity without compromising their authentic backbone. Discover an extravaganza of patterns, and don’t be afraid to be the pop of color the world so desperately needs. Try to break up the clash with a solid color that can be either a black trench coat or a navy-blue vest to balance the look and end the battle on a peaceful note.
Oversized blazers and over-the-knee boots are never over-the-top
Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfortable sneakers and oversized denim pair of pants and land right into a pair of over-the-knee boots gloriously matched with an oversized blazer. Any self-respecting fashionista has an over-the-knee boot and 2021 sort of forced you to invest in an oversized blazer anyway. Mix them like there’s no tomorrow and experience what a rockstar feels on stage! You can complete your combination with a mini skirt or flirty shorts while creating a spectacular look and the illusion of never-ending legs. If you’re going for bold boots in Lurex or animal print, it would probably be a good idea to quiet down the ensemble with minimalist accessories.
Puff sleeves for freshness and romance
The fashion industry seems to be enamored with puff sleeves. Whether you have bought a puff-sleeved top for the cool summer days or a cozy puff-sleeve sweater for cute winter outfits, you will be glad to know you'll have plenty of opportunities to wear your supersize sleeves in the year to come as this is one of the biggest trends of 2022. Match your diaphanous silky balloon puff sleeve top with a scarf for a fresh look or wear your white puff sleeve top collar sweater with a white midi skirt and brown boots for an elegant contrast. For a romantic escapade, the Xena puffy long-sleeved dress is exactly what the fashion critic prescribed. Perfection and a bit more!
Tractor sole boots – are they hot or not?
Back in the 90s, every teenage girl asked for a pair of tractor sole boots! It was a must-have and an extraordinary investment piece. Fast forward to 2019, and the tractor sole boots are making a comeback! Gigi Hadid and Kaia Gerber wore tractor tread flats on the Prada AW19 runaway and opened the door for chunky boots to take over the world. 2021 was the year of the designer tractor sole boots with everyone showing off the chunkiest boots the catwalk has ever seen. Balenciaga ruled supreme with their tractor-trek sole boots, but you can find the boots reinvented by every big and small designer out there. Your tractor boots make a dream team with a long dress or a tiny, mini, super-short skirt, but nobody can stop you from pairing them with slouchy sweatpants or leggings and oversized baggy shirts if your heart so desires! And yes, they are hot and will continue to be so in 2022!
