It’s almost time for the new year to begin. With it, comes a whole host of new fashion trends that we can mix and match with our existing wardrobes. Bold color combinations are one trend that we believe will be the most popular. We’re excited that bright, vibrant ensembles with a “look at me!” attitude will replace our winter neutrals by 2022.
Lyst reports that searches for colors like yellow, orange, and green as well as terms such as “colorful” or “rainbow” are steadily increasing as we enter the new year. We predict this trend will become more popular than leather pants and cut-out detailing. The trend is being embraced by many influencers who post outfits in a Barbie pink hue or other vibrant colors. But you don’t have to be extravagant to achieve it. You can still look chic and trendy with a little bit of bright yellow in the form of a small handbag or a sweater in lime green peeking out beneath your gray wool winter coat.
We do recognize that some people might find it intimidating to swap out their black cashmere for brighter red cashmere. What’s the best way you can rock bold colors? Keep it simple and choose solid colors over patterns or prints. Carrie Bradshaw’s violet purple headband and bright blue pumps are great options. We recommend that you stick with solid colors, but it is possible to mix and match to create your own color-blocked outfit. Mixing warm and cool tones is okay. We love the idea of pairing a buttery yellow with a deep violet. You’ll look great as long as you don’t mind wearing it. As a buffer, you can add a neutral piece, such as black pants or blue-washed jeans, if you’re a little nervous about mixing contrasting colors.
You’re now well-versed in the top fashion trends for 2022, so here’s 12 pieces you can play with before the new Year even begins.
