Spring has finally sprung and we’re preparing our wardrobes for the upcoming summer. After almost two years of playing “stay-at-home dressup”, we’re more than ready to get back into it. From statement dresses to closet classics – SS22 makes all of our dreams come true. Ahead, a roundup of this season’s standout styles. Get ready to immerse yourself in the key styles that are here to steal our hearts.
Let’s travel back in time to the bright 1960s when platforms were the next “big thing”. The retro trend that circled its way back in style in the 1990s and 2000s is back once more, and this time around they’re bigger than ever. Fourth time’s a charm, right? Both Versace and Valentino have taken the lead and proven that the platform is this season’s definitive It-shoe – and it is hard not to see why. Pro tip! Look to Zara for copy/paste.
Shine bright like a rainbow! From cobalt blue to cheerful yellow, get ready to be swept away by a rainbow of colors this season. Think color-blocking along with head-to-toe columns of color and you’ll be the center of every party – now that’s a promise. All high street stores offer a variety of candy-colored gems to fit every liking. 3, 2, 1, now let’s get to it.
White on white spells yummy. We dare to say white is summer’s big power player, and the key shade to keeping our wardrobes feeling fresh and aesthetically clean all summer long. Opt for tone-on-tone white for a truly luxurious look, and remember to play with textures – nothing screams summer more than white pieces made of linen, cotton and silk. Let’s stock up on Vanish, shall we?!
2022 or 2001? Who knows! A step into 2022 was definitely a step back into the beginning of the millenium. Who could forget the Sex and the City episode where Carrie Bradshaw pointedly corrected her mugger after he demanded she hand over her “bag”. Ahem, it is a baguette. Point made!
The shoulder bag is now seen on anyone who wants to be someone, and we’re loving it. We dare to say it is the season’s most versatile bag, as it looks as good on a night out and about, as it does at work or at brunch. Look to vintage online stores such as Vestiaire Collective or The Vintage Bar, both offer designer and luxury brands for a lot less. It takes both time and dedication to find the really good ones, however rest assured it is worth the while. Who knows, it might be your lucky day!
