FASHION - Spring / Summer 2022
Old Hollywood Glamour… Just the most fabulous fashion on the red carpet and coming to our shores! The red carpet brought the elegance back into award ceremonies this year and answered a longing to live in a more simpler (and glamorous) time! We have seen very high necklines for a while now, but move over and make way for the plunging necklines. It’s time to carry sunglasses everywhere you go, spend more time on your hair and pop on those opera (long-length) gloves! We are seeing sequins again (starting to be seen in stores now) and fashion accented with feathers too. Capes are totally IN this year and even in winter, look out for the cape coat! Look, we’ve all been through a lot… it’s time to lose the trackies and sneakers, throw on your pumps, dress and imitation fur, and smile darling, smile!
Other fashion trends (I’m not overly fond of) include cut away dresses and platform shoes, patterned sets and high slit dresses and skirts. Colours: bubblegum pink is very on trend for spring, along with an almost Kermit-the-frog tonnes green! Over winter, you will see multiple shades of brown (oh so many) and the colour of the year is “Very Perri” – a dynamic periwinkle blue hue with a vivifying violet red undertone blends the faithfulness and constancy of blue with the energy and excitement of red. So basically, you’ll see multiple shades of lilac, purple and blue, in stores now. Emerald greens and crimson reds also make an appearance and many fashion houses suggest that their colour of the year, is yellow. Black is always in but it’s time to put away the oranges, mustard yellow and anything neon… don’t worry, the 80’s will be back.
