Does anyone else feel pretty much over winter the moment the new year hits? There’s still a lot of winter ahead, but I’m already looking at pieces I know I can transition for spring and summer, and eyeing some of the trends I think will be big this year. Here are the trends that I’m loving most:
Trendy Pieces for 2022
My tip: Pair the pattern with neutral colors to keep the focus on the statement piece.
Wide Leg Pants
I feel like I hit the jackpot with both of these pants! The black flare pants feel exactly like the Aerie crossover leggings (which I love), but they are only $24 and have the added bonus of the slit. They also come in a bunch of colors! I’m 5’6 and I usually find most pants to be on the longer side, but these fit great!
These white jeans are incredible as well! They are so flattering, and also the perfect length.
Sweater vests are great because they are so versatile. You can buy them plain, patterned, long, or short. You can wear a long one as a dress as it gets warmer, or layer them with button downs, tights and coats/jackets in the cooler months.
I recently got this pair of Amazon sneakers and I’m obsessed!
Straight leg jeans
Although the straight leg jeans are a relatively newer style (we all swore we’d never ditch the skinny jeans), I feel like skinny jeans aren’t going to be as big as they once were any time soon. This pair is so comfortable and classic – I just got them but I know I will get a ton of use out of them.
Blazers are amazing because there are so many different ways to wear them. Business or casual, open or belted, patterned or neutral – there are so many options. I have mine here belted with tights and boots for colder weather (you could also throw a coat over), but you can also wear a lighter blazer open with shorts and a tank for warmer weather (this would also work great with denim shorts).
Trousers took me a while to come around to but they are a huge trend right now. I found this super comfortable pair at Express and I have been wearing them nonstop since I got them.
These aren’t necessarily a new trend (I got mine last year), they are still just as popular as ever. I love mine because they go with so many different kinds of outfits. They look good with jeans, leggings, and dresses. I actually have the black pair on my wish list!
Overall, I’m so excited about the trends this year – they are super bright, fun and colorful!
