Trendy Wear in Spring: 4 Match Tips You Need to Know

As any self-respecting fashionista will tell you, a new year means new trends, and from this autumn’s fashion week shows in London, Milan, and New York it’s clear that designers are looking forward to bold, sexy, and very feminine looks in 2022. Colour-wise, black and white look set to remain hot next season – whether they’re teamed in big, bold prints, stripes, spots, or one main color with natty contrasting trims, hems, and cute 50s-inspired details such as buckles and bows, which can be carried over to shoes to complete a look.

The metallic trend from winter should soften and turn more neutral, with warm tones of rosy grey, pewter, and old gold which are much more flattering to pale skin tones – a blessing if the winter has left you with that typically British complexion; paper-white with pink cheeks and nose when you step outside!

Tip 1 – Bright Colours

Bright colors worn next to the face can make you look more washed-out, as does black, so it may be best to save them for tights and shoes.

Tip 2 – Invest in statement things like ruffle sleeves

The winter trend of hard-edged, futuristic shiny fabrics, with wet-look, glittering dresses, and leather biker jackets, gives way to a lighter and altogether more feminine look, with tulle, ruffles, and tutus all set to make a comeback in the new season’s party dresses.

Tip 3 – Fitted Clothes

Ladylike, polished Hollywood glamour is back in a big way, too; while the ‘body-conscious’ trend isn’t dead, spring silhouettes will have softer edges with emphasis on nipped-in waists and classic curves rather than scary shoulders and pointy toes.

Tip 4 – Satin and Taffeta are the season’s Fabric

Choose luxurious satin and taffeta dresses with flattering halter necklines, or strapless with little details such as flower corsages; in skirt shapes, we’ll see flamboyant fishtails and the ‘mermaid’ shape – tight to the knee, then flared – which really exaggerate feminine curves. Team these key pieces with pearls, red lips, and fluffy faux-fur wraps for a vintage siren look that would make Rita Hayworth proud.

There’s a lot to look forward to in 2022- and with Christmas bonuses, January sales, and plenty of time off to think about it, winter is a great time to start picking out your perfect pieces, such as classy designer dresses, which with clever accessorizing can multi-task and see you safely through the winter and spring in style.
