You’ll find lots of old favorites this year, so start by looking in your closet first to see what you already have, and then add a few pieces here and there if you want to freshen up your warm weather wardrobe.

As requested, I’ve included pieces from several different price points, but always remember:  spend well on classics, go cheap on trends.

Patterned Sets

Matchy-matchy.  What’s great about patterned sets is that you can wear the pieces together or with classic separates to create different outfits.

Editorial Print

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.

Skirt Suits

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.

Trouser Suits

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…

Statement Blazer

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.

Vest

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.

Trench Coat

“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.

Bermuda Shorts

A long-time favorite, Bermuda shorts are long enough to cover the upper thighs while short enough to keep you cool.

Halter Necks

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.

Corsets

After spending the quarantine binge-watching British period dramas like Downton Abbey, Outlander, and Poldark,  fashion designers have rediscovered the corset…with beautiful results.

      Yay! Spring fashion news I can use! Thanks so much!
      We’re bracing for another April blizzard here in North Dakota, so I’m shopping for pastel or bright colored parkas 😉

        Hi Nancy – you’re VERY welcome! I grew up on Colorado and spent MANY Halloweens AND Easters battling snow, so I know of what you speak. A pastel parka is perfectly appropriate this time of year, lol!
