From the Runways to Your Closet: Six 2022 Summer Trends You Don’t Want To Miss
The weather is heating up — so why shouldn't your wardrobe?
We've been keeping an eye on the hottest trends for the summer and have curated this list to make it easy for you to find your favourite new looks (to keep you looking and feeling cool during these hot months)!
Cutouts are a great way to add some interest (and added ventilation for those hot days) to any look! Whether it’s an open back or a keyhole at the front, cutouts are sure to draw attention.
The Kyra Tank is a simple black tank with side and back cutouts — a great option to dip your toe into the cutout trend.
The Ava Cutout Dress is a little bolder, with the keyhole front and side/back cutout.
Matching sets are a great way to take a comfortable outfit and make it fashion! A set automatically makes you look and feel more put together (and you don’t even have to do the hard work of planning an outfit; it’s done for you)!
These Evie Matching Sets come in Black and Lavender — so you and your best friend can rock the look together.
If you don’t want to go too matchy-matchy you can try a patterned short and pull a colour out of the pattern to use for your top. These Daisy shorts come in Green (shown), Lilac, and Yellow. Pair with one of our Go-To Ribbed Camis (available in White, Pink, and Black).
Super Short Hemlines
Calling all mini-skirt lovers! It’s time to flash some leg — hemlines are trending shorter this year. Style Bar has a great selection of mini-dresses. Here's one from our latest launch: the Ida Ruffle Mini Dress in Lime. This dress also coincidentally falls into the next trend category: Bright & Bold Colours!
Bright & Bold Colours
It's time to put the neutrals aside and let the bright colours shine this summer! Pair with your favourite statement earring for an eye-catching look. Regan looks gorgeous in this Red Brandy Dress (and as an added bonus it's bump-friendly)!
If you don't want to go full-monochrome with your bright colours look you can ease into it by pairing a bright top with your favourite pair of denim shorts. This Abstract Puff Sleeve Top pairs great with a light wash denim thanks to it's light blue base.
Regency Era-Inspired Silhouettes
With the popularity of shows like Bridgerton, it's no surprise that Regency Era fashion is trending. This year we're seeing more puff sleeves, corset tops and bow details in our dresses and tops. The Adora Dress in black is a perfect example, with the puff sleeves and tie at the back.
The Botanical Bow Jumpsuit is a fun twist on this era, with the puff sleeves and open back with lovely bows for added interest.
Crop tops have been a warm-weather staple for years — and we don't see them going anywhere anytime soon. If done correctly, the right crop top can work at any age!
A fitted crop top can pair easily into a high-waisted skirt or shorts, and the sliver of skin adds a little bit of fun without being too much. Throw on a cropped denim jacket to complete the look.
Here we have the Go-To Ribbed Cami in Pink paired with the Daisy Pull On Shorts in Lilac, paired with the Raya Cropped Denim Jacket.
Low-rise pants have made a resurgence this year, so if you're feeling bold pair them with a crop top for the ultimate 90s look.
If you're looking for summer 2022's trendiest looks, you'll want to explore Monochrome Outfits, Cutouts, Short Hemlines, Bright Colours, Crop Tops and Regency-Inspired Silhouettes. You can mix and match these trends, and make them your own. Don't overthink it: fashion is supposed to be a fun way to express yourself!
