Spring Fashion 2022 – Colors and Prints
These are the typically the easiest trends to replicate using stuff you already have.
Black and White Stripes
Black and white are perennial favorites in any combination, but stripes make them fresh for Spring Fashion 2022.
Nothing says spring and summer like flowers, so if you like florals, you’re going to love this trend.
Warm weather calls for bright and light colors to reflect the sun and help keep you cool. You’ll have a lot to choose from this season.
Here’s another fun way to get in even more colors, with blocks of color throughout your ensemble.
Match one color head-to-toe to look taller, slimmer, and right on trend for Spring Fashion 2022.

Matchy-matchy. What’s great about patterned sets is that you can wear the pieces together or with classic separates to create different outfits.
John Galliano introduced the newspaper print dress back in 2000 when he worked at Dior, and the print is having a bit of a comeback these days because it’s fun – particularly if you’re a writer, blogger, or journalist.
Spring Fashion 2022 – Clothing Styles
You probably have several of these styles in your closet already as they’ve been popular for years. Or some cases, even centuries.
First introduced around 1915, skirt suits for women were popular until the early 2000s when they fell out of favor for all but the most traditional industries. They’re back again this spring in a big way, both for business and social wear.
Like skirt suits, trouser suits were all over the runways this season. Could it be that women missed dressing up for work while stuck at home during the pandemic? Maybe…

For those who don’t like or don’t wear suits, there’s also the option of a statement blazer, which can add gravitas in business and social situations.

Waistcoats have been popular for centuries and are usually worn formally as part of a three-piece suit. Vests tend to be less formal and can be worn in a variety of ways, including by themselves or with a shirt, blouse, or jacket. Like the other suit pieces listed above, they were all over the runways for spring.

“April showers bring May flowers.” How do you protect against the rain? With a lightweight trench coat in a neutral or pastel shade that will help you keep warm and look chic.

A long-time favorite, Bermuda shorts are long enough to cover the upper thighs while short enough to keep you cool.
Halter necks help keep you cool on even the hottest days…which is why they’ve been popular for decades. This spring is no exception.
