Many people seem to prefer layering up, but spring summer is by far my favorite season for fashion (and everything else). This year’s trends explain why. After nearly two years of WFH casual dressing, loungewear, and making what’s up top count, we’re all in need of a little change. For spring summer, designers everywhere have put a new spin on old favorites, splashed color all over their catwalks, designed outfits everyone wants to wear, and created collections that project a brighter year ahead.

From biker girls to Hollywood starlets, gym class heroes to feminine skirt suits, there’s something to inspire everyone this season. So, let’s delve into the trends for spring summer 2022 and discover where you can shop them now.

What are the key trends for spring summer 2022?

It’s hip to be square in vision-distorting checks for the new season. From checkerboard to pop color creations, it’s time to go off-grid and mix up your checks. This retro graphic can be worn for all occasions. Step back into the office with an impact in a power suit, take it back to the 90s in a monochrome crop top, and add some flare to the midi skirt in green, one of the key colors of the season.

Skirt Suits

Feminine and girly, cute yet cool, the skirt suit makes a welcome return from the 90s with a version for everyone. Chanel’s classic tweed skirt suits came in an array of exciting new colors, shapes, and sizes, while Dior made going back to the office an exciting prospect with smart cool girl versions. This playful twinset is a must in everyone’s wardrobe this season.

Micro Minis

It’s legs on show this season as designers decided it was time to get our pins out from under our desks and back out into the world. Look to Prada for chic colors, Missoni for metallic minis, and Miu Miu for the ultimate micro, so short even the pockets hang below the hemline.

Liquid Metals

It’s time to shine in this season’s eye-blinding light-reflecting trend. Silver fluid fabrics moved effortlessly down the catwalks of Fendi and Lanvin, sequins shimmered and sparkled for Valentino and Burberry, while Gucci and Balenciaga stole the show with layers and layers of foil fabrics and voluminous shapes. If you’re wondering how to embrace it this season, opt for dazzling accessories for a wearable take on the trend.

Biker Girl

The OG of the leather jacket is back with a whole lot of bad girl energy for 2022. More biker gang than rock ‘n’ roll chick, this year’s look has toughened up with layers of leather from Alice and Olivia, covered in studs and spikes à la Richard Quinn. Alexander McQueen mixed leather with denim covered in multiple zips and buckles, while Miu Miu embraced vintage with worn-down distressed leather.

From monochrome to colorful, blurred to cut up, breton to check chair, straight up and down, or all over the place, stripes are a constant on the catwalk yet never fail to grab our attention. This year saw a mixed bag of stripes. JW Anderson, Etro, and Alaïa added tassels, bringing texture and movement to the trend. Balmain took the Breton to a whole new level, and Fendi draped models with colorful, elegant branded statement stripes.

The 00s

Get ready to lower your denim rise, bare your midriff, throw on a few butterflies, and dig out your cargo pants, as Y2K has bounced back with all the nostalgia, fun, energy, and belly button flare it had the first time around. Dolce & Gabbana announced their key influence with slogan t-shirts, chokers, and micro skirts. MSGM returned to the double denim favorite teamed with flip flops and midriff, and Tom Ford brought back the high-shine cargo pants we never thought would be seen again.

Sportswear went old school for spring summer 2022, turning PE geeks into gym class heroes. Colors were muted with trims of neon, while fabrics were practical with cool edgy cuts you wouldn’t want to break a sweat in. Knee-high socks and slides, anoraks and hoodies, buttoned-up polo necks, and safety specs featured, all topped off with a visor for extra measure.

Sheer Delights

The barely-there fabric that’s bringing sexy back was a big hit for what will hopefully be a scorcher of a season ahead. The delicate slip dresses that flowed over equally see-through lingerie from Dsquared may be a little risqué for some, but fear not. There were some fun styling options to pull this transparent trend off. For those who may veer towards modesty, Ashish’s floral sheer dresses over brightly colored tights may be more appealing, or Dior’s ability to layer sheer fabrics in just the right places and covering all the right areas feel a little more wearable.

Quite possibly the most daunting trend of them all is the rise of the midriff. Designers delightfully put so many on show this season that it feels like a conspiracy to get us to bare all when it comes to our fashion choices this summer. Another 90’s/00’s-inspired trend, the midriff has taken center stage by lowering our waistlines and hiking up our crop tops. Lanvin played around with proportions by adding low-rise puffball skirts and wide-legged trousers teamed with graphic crop tops, Zimmerman transformed tailoring with belly-button-flashing suiting, and Etro went full retro with scarf-like tops and drawstring slouchy bottoms in bubblegum pink.

Mono Color

It’s a bright and beautiful time to get colorful, as designers celebrated the new season with an array of bold stunning juicy colors that instantly lift your energy. This easy one-stop styling option is the quickest way to update your wardrobe with minimal fashion experience. Try Bottega’s stylish all-over color palette and match your accessories in similar shades. Take tailoring to another level and opt for head-to-toe suiting in vibrant orange spotted at the Boss spring summer 2022 show. If the bolder approach feels a little daunting, look to Max Mara and try sorbet shades for a more subtle way to wear this trend.

Not just for beach babes (although there was plenty of inspiration for this year’s summer holiday), this DIY color trend was a favorite on the catwalks, adding exciting new color ways to a season that certainly wants to stand out. Splashed across evening gowns, layered over hoodies and flowing skirts by Marques Almeida, and adorned across day-to-night dresses at the Jason Wu show, this year’s version of tie-dye certainly made a splash.

A wardrobe staple of any fashion girl, the blazer has been around for a while, but this season, it really means business. Sleeves are longer, shoulders bigger, shapes bolder, and sizes baggier. This year, the blazer is BIG! This throw-over-everything styling hero has always saved the day when making an impression for both smart and casual situations, yet the trick this year is to make it the biggest thing you own.

It’s time to ruffle some feathers in this season’s softest trend. From trimmings to all-over plumage, this fabulous feather fashion friend is no soft touch. Valentino added eye-popping colors, Moschino made them the finishing touch to eccentric outfits, while Gucci swept the floor with them. Whichever way you choose to wear them, be sure to prune and preen your feathery friends for a truly fluffy finish.

Cutouts were huge in AW21, and this season, they’re back and more daring than ever. Follow Burberry’s suit and embrace the look from head-to-toe, or opt for a more subtle approach like Proenza Schouler. Either way, you choose to go, it’s a chic look that anyone can pull off.
