2022 Summer Trends: Comfort and Color

By  0 Comments

Three looks that will up your fashion game this summer may be a little familiar, with a 2022 twist.

Dopamine Colors
Everyone needs a little pick-me-up here and there. Why not brighten your own day and somebody else’s with a pop of color? Candy colors are trending everywhere, especially in the world of accessories. Take it up a notch and match your shoes to your bag in the ever-popular bright green color.

Smocked Dresses
Who wouldn’t love a dress so comfortable you could sleep in it? That is exactly what we are seeing for summer: lightweight smocked bodice dresses. We are seeing them in short styles, midis and maxis, so pick the length that is for you! A smocked dress, worn correctly, is fitted to your top half to showcase your torso but will stop just above your natural waist line and the texture will camouflage any trouble areas. This style can be figure-flattering and comfortable!

Straight Leg Jeans
If you are feeling confused on how to wear the straight leg jean, you are not alone. But it’s time to join the club because a relaxed look is here to stay. Don’t throw away all your skinny jeans; there is still a time and a place for them. But be bold and add some variety to your wardrobe with a straight leg. The best part is most straight leg jeans will have a vintage denim look but will also have stretch. You can look up to date and be comfortable. This style looks great with a sandal, heel or low-profile sneaker!
