The latest fashion trends of 2024 (top 30) comprise a unique blend of garments, footwear, and accessories from past styles and contemporary trends.

Expect a mix of classic fashion styles from the 80s and 90s with contemporary fashion trends and aesthetics from Bohemian, Rock, Goth, Punk, and Preppy subcultures in combinations never seen before.

Current Fashion Trends




Let’s explore and enjoy the latest fashion trends of this coming year and what you need to know to stay on top of your stylistic game.

1. Trench Coats

Casual faux leather trench latest fashion trends 2022


Not a fashion season has passed without the trench appearing, and the most recent fashion shows were no exception.

With a perennially stylish military cut, the super practical trench coat has been a fashion staple since the First World War.

Also, the casual trench is perfect for drizzly days, thanks to the Gabardine fabric.

Fashion trends: Double Layer Trench Coat

The coat of choice for iconic women for decades, the casual trench, has been brought back to life by Meghan Markle’s recent royal visits.

Great with a cashmere roll neck and Prada tractor-tread boots to create that stylish yet military-inspired outerwear look.


EDITOR’S NOTE

If you’re looking for something different, grab a Nanushka faux leather trench and wear it over a floral dress or a ribbed wool turtleneck with matching heels.

BRANDS

Burberry, Nanushka, Valentino, Sportmax, Brunello Cucinelli, Dolce & Gabbana, Magda Butrym, Palmer//Harding






2. Leather Jackets

Current fashion trends classic bomber and biker leather jacket


Not a fashion season passes without a leather jacket for women wearing an appearance, and this year is no exception to the rule.

A perennial of the most popular fashion trends, the leather jacket sports several variations, reiterations, cuts, styles, and trends.

Bliss Black Leather Bomber Jacket
Alison Brown Leather Biker Jacket

Yet, after a half-decade of cruelty-free and vegan leather jackets – in various colors and styles, from plus size clothing to workwear.

This year, we see a return to classic, clean-cut bomber and custom-made biker leather jacket styles.


EDITOR’S NOTE

A winner of the 80s fashion styles, the leather jacket is a must-have outfit for smart casual dress code, officewear, streetwear, or even dinner dates.

BRANDS

Dolce & Gabbana, Ermenegildo Zegna, The Jacket Maker, Diesel, Brunello Cucinelli, Tommy Hilfiger, Michael Kors, Acne Studios, Dunhill, Dsquared2






3. Floral Dresses

Fantasy Floral current fashion trends 2022

Bohemian style floral dress – The VOU.

Almost synonymous with spring, flowers have long represented renewal, beauty, and the feminine side of nature.

The association between floral motifs and natural femininity can be traced through fashion’s last hundred years.

As the role of women in society (equality, empowerment) changes, so does the general concept of feminine symbols such as flowers in clothing.

La Doublej Floral Print Silk Dress
Yellow Ditsy Print Puff Sleeve Woven Floral Dress

Led by stores like Princess Polly and similar women’s clothing stores, 2024 is the year of Boho fashion style.

However, the current looks can be described as ‘adding petals to the metal’ as designers and stylists are no longer interested in rose prints.

Instead, florals are taking over Goth clothing brands and other digitally born aesthetic clothing trends like cottagecore, darker academia, light academia, and e-girl styles.


EDITOR’S NOTE

Avoid wilting roses and choose twisted fantasy florals. Blend sunny yellows and fresh greens with raging hues of red and gothic black.

BRANDS

Marie France Van Damme, Valentino, Aspinal of London, Etro, Bernadette, PDN London, Peony

4. Sweet Pastels

Latest Pastel fashion trends 2022

Pastel outfits – The VOU.

Subvert the saccharine; pastels are a perennial spring favorite, but this year’s styles balance delicate with daring.

Frothy ruffles and sheer tulle add romance to short lengths, making longer styles more risqué.

In times when everyone wears loungewear with wolf-cut hairstyles, sherbet lemon chiffon is a radical statement.

Apparis Karine Ombre Organic-Cotton Sweatshirt
Recycled Oversized Zip Through Hoodie

Very popular in the past on pajamas and loungewear, contemporary pastel looks will elevate your 1990s Barbie girl to a controversial fashion powerhouse that crushes everything on its way.

Yes, matching sets and sweatsuits can still be worn around the house, but the style works best for unconventional social settings.


EDITOR’S NOTE

Amp up this look with a chunky pair of white boots, a blazer or a long jacket, layered necklaces, or a peek-a-boo turtleneck.

BRANDS

Stella McCartney, Sophia Webster, WESTERNAFFAIR, Jenny Packham, Olivia Rubin, Prada.






5. Punk Style Boots

Tractor trek-sole boots fashion trends

Tractor Trek-Sole Boots – The VOU

Following a massive surge in popularity, every designer and retailer from Balenciaga to Zara takes cues from the fancy Punk style boots.

Characterized by a rounded toe and a thick, rugged, tractor-style sole, this style is among this year’s most wanted footwear fashion trends.

Monolith Leather & Nylon Lug-Sole Combat Boots
Black Tab Lace Up Chunky Ankle Boots

Daggy dad runners or chunky street kicks are the modern interpretation of the platform sneaker look.

With all the chunk and less of the sporty cheek, the look has owned both runways and street style for the past two years.

Think Doc Martens on steroids, the aesthetic opposite of the stretch neoprene flats and kitten heels seen on Miuccia Prada’s eponymous SS22 catwalk past September.

My fav is Balenciaga’s reinterpretation of Chelsea’s classic silhouette but with a chunky grooved-rubbed trek sole.


EDITOR’S NOTE

Pair your tractor boots with slouchy sweatpants or leggings for a practical or slant-to-laid-back look.

BRANDS

Jil Sander, Rick Owens, Proenza Schouler, Salvatore Ferragamo, Premiata, Acne Studios, Le Silla

6. Chunky Loafers

Chunky loafers fashion trends of 2022

Chunky Loafers – The VOU

Too early for boots, cold for fancy shoes, and not in the mood for high heels? I’ve got you covered with chunky loafers.

With an overall classic look, these shoes stand out from the mainstream.

Sneakers and boots were the most popular flat style over the past few years, with loafers, ballet styles, and babydoll shoes.

P.A.R.O.S.H. Koba Chunky Loafers
Chunky Loafers

However, the current fashion trend puts chunky loafers at the top of the flat style.

In particular, when paired with longer-length socks for a ‘Schoolcore’ aesthetic.

Check out Prada’s chunky loafers, leading a grunge aesthetic trend that’s only growing now.


EDITOR’S NOTE

Match your patent leather loafers with a crocodile-effect vegan leather bag to create another dimension of a modern rock’n’roll star.

BRANDS

Givenchy, Miu Miu, Alexander McQueen, Gucci, Stuart Weitzman, Gianvito Rossi






7. Boho Style Dresses

Maxies fashion trends for 2021

Maxie dresses and skirts for a trendy bohemian look – The VOU

The Bohemian style has always had some of the most relaxed, versatile dresses a woman can wear.

Are they headed out on a summer night? – Throw it on with sandals and go.

Are you going to a wedding? – Dress it up with jewels and heels.

Maxi dresses are trending again, thanks to TikTok’s Cottagecore aesthetic trend.

Clube Bossa Bourgen Maxi Dress
White Crinkle Cami Ruffled Maxi Dress

Cottagecore is a new fashion trend led by boho brands like Free People or stores like Anthropologie and will continue to grow this year.

Dubbed by many as ‘blanket dresses’ – as they are great while chilling on the couch, the maxis are brighter and shinier now.

More extensive and bolder is better, as clashing prints with wide tulle make everything seem sunnier.

Some of our favourite influencer and celebrity outfits utilize the colour-blocking trend; many shades pair perfectly together.


EDITOR’S NOTE

Sneak in that little extra pop, like a bold shoe or hat, to spice up the neutrals.

BRANDS

Dolce and Gabbana, Ashish, Halpern, Molly Goddard, Tom Ford, Nina Ricci, and Valentino

8. Vests & Shests

Vest fashion trends of 2021

Vests and Shests – The VOU

Vests have long held an essential sartorial role both for practical purposes and as part of suiting.

However, vests didn’t become a standard part of womenswear until the 1970s, when they entered the mainstream as casual work attire.

By the late 1990s, it became fashionable for women to wear vests as part of their everyday style, which became one of the popular trends of the 2000s fashion.

Balmain Embellished-logo Sweater Vest
Pink Knit Vest Top

The rest is history, as vests have taken over the runway and the streets since then.

Don’t own a vest? DIY an old sweater by cutting off the sleeves or layering a muscle tee over a long-sleeved shirt to create a similar look.


EDITOR’S NOTE

Try the contemporary fashion trend of ‘Shest’ – a vest and a shirt together – for an extra stylistic boost.

BRANDS

Brunello Cucinelli, Dolce & Gabbana, Balmain, Miu Miu, Jill Sander, Emilio Pucci, KNWLS






9. Tops with Oversized Shoulders

Puffy shoulders current fashion trends

Voluminous sleeves and shoulders – The VOU.

Unmissable sleeves – with their ruffles, puffs, and frills – are ballooning across the catwalk and the high street, and there’s no sign of the trend deflating.

Stuffed with social and logistical questions, oversized sleeves and shoulders shouldn’t be a viable trend – such as: is it possible to hug those you love while wearing a top that resembles giant armbands?

Marni Puffed Sleeves Denim Blouse
Extreme Puff Sleeve Mini Dress

This year, voluminous dresses emerge, creating the perfect ‘one-and-done’ look (ideal for video calls).

And yet, the ‘Sleevification’ of fashion is in full swing, poised to take over in 2024 and rock the runways of fashion capitals.


EDITOR’S NOTE

Things can quickly go stylistically wrong with garments with oversized shoulders, so match them carefully, ideally with high-waisted pants in a similar color palette.

BRANDS

Eskandar, Loewe, Lanvin, Dvf Diane Von Furstenberg, Roksanda, Ganni

10. Sash Belts

Sash belt latest fashion trends

Sash Belt-Dress – The VOU

Far from being purely utilitarian, belts can add that final sartorial touch and complete your look.

Adding a belt can be the equivalent of adding a period to the end of a sentence.

In the past, sash belts were created to be worn with bridal dresses, but in 2024, sash belts will be used beyond the bridal landscape.

Gina Sash-Waist Pleated Short
30 Current Fashion Trends from Leading Brands and Style Experts

Next year, sash belts will be a fashion-forward statement piece you can tie around your waist (like a sash) and look like a style goddess.


EDITOR’S NOTE

Wear the Sash as Obi, tied with a bow, as part of the pants play combo, or as a bow at the back to create a cinched waist that makes you look good while walking away.

BRANDS

Isabel Sanchis, RED(V), Sara Roka, Forte Forte, Jonathan Simkhai, Zimmermann, Elisabetta Franchi






11. Bralettes

Bralettes 2022 fashion trend

Bralettes under oversized jackets – The VOU.

The main difference between a bra and a bralette is that bralettes are softer, more lightweight, and usually made without wiring.

As a result, bralettes give lighter support than regular bras.

In the past, this comfortable bra alternative was layered under baggy shirts for an extra print or pop of color.

Versace Lace-Trim Silk Bralette Top
Premium Lace Cupped Bralet

However, the wire-free style comes this year in all colors, fabrics, and designs so that you can wear it as a top.

Moreover, you can now wear bralettes under blazers and cardigans, and you do not have to match them with your top layer.

The possibilities are endless: match it with a co-ord set, under a blazer, with denim Bermuda shorts, under a mesh top, a vacation shirt and high-waisted skirt, under a sheer ensemble, and so on.


EDITOR’S NOTE

Brallets look stunning under a slip dress or a boiler suit with a plunging neckline, so try it.

BRANDS

Karl Lagerfeld, Laneus, SIR., Emporio Armani, Alanui, Nuè, Seen Users






12. 90s Bucket Hats

Bucket hat fashion trends 2022

Bucket Hats – The VOU

The bucket hat is back, as searches have increased by 56% since last year (according to Lyst) and a 55% increase in searches on eBay.

While more recently spotted on Billie Eilish, Diplo, and shows of Bode, Kate Spade, and Anna Sui, bucket hats never faded.

This type of hat is the ideal lockdown wear, great for hiding a headful of curls untouched by the hand of a hairdresser.

Karl Lagerfeld Logo-Patch Bucket Hat
Blue Basic Bucket Hat

It is also a hat that screams, ‘It’s summer!’ while giving you a Madeline moment.

The shape – charming and silly – evokes a smile and a fizz of memories.

This seeming duality has given the hat longevity that somehow transcends trends.

So, swap your baseball cap for a bucket hat and sport one of many current trends initiated by Rihanna and Bella Hadid.


EDITOR’S NOTE

“Denim bucket hats look great with a killer trench coat layered over a matching denim trucker jacket.”

BRANDS

Craig Green, Loewe, Moncler, Kenzo, Missoni, Heron Preston, A-Cold-Wall

13. Academia Vibe

Matching sets fashion trends of 2021 and 2022

Academic look – The VOU.

Academic-infused styles – including dark academia and light academia – got a massive boost and are expected to remain relevant across all of 2024.

Driven by social media nostalgia for school and fashion, this fashion style emphasizes education, learning, reading, and writing, hence the ‘academic’ touch.

The style can be split into three substyles: dark, light, and grey academia.

Alexander McQueen Button-Front Blazer
Plus Dogtooth Prince Of Wales Check Blazer

While each academic substyle has characteristics, most draw aesthetics from Preppy and goth styles.

You can go with the dark academia style by choosing heavy knitwear in dark tones inspired by ancient Hogwarts-worthy libraries.

Or, light academia for a ‘lighter’ twist on its goth-leaning counterpart and create an aesthetic that carries an air of refreshing positivity.


EDITOR’S NOTE

The most common Academia styles recourse to monochrome blazers, peek-a-boo turtlenecks, chunky boots, and layered necklaces. But which Academia style are you talking about?…

BRANDS

Maison Margiela, Bottega Veneta, Mugler, Gucci, Johanna Ortiz, Lemaire, Versace, Kika Vargas






14. The Goth Look

Goth latest fashion trends

Goth outfit – The VOU.

When considering alternative fashion, the Gothic style is always at the top of any list.

In the early alternative subculture, gothic clothes are a cornerstone of the scene, with ‘the blackest of the black and the darkest of the dark’ at heart.

Simone Rocha Frilled Shoulders Puff-Sleeves Dress
Dark In Love Adrienne Gothic Velvet Dress

However, you do not have to be the ‘baddest witch in the coven’ or in love with the prince of darkness to wear hot goth apparel.

Moreover, you’re entitled to be decadent and sulky in your gothic slip dresses, bringing darker vibes to your daywear outfits.


EDITOR’S NOTE

Avoid Halloween comes early or distressed hems and focus on daring cut-outs and sexy fabrics (you are a hot goth, after all).

BRANDS

La Perla, Alexander Mcqueen, Haculla, Comme Des Garçons, Jordan, Gucci

15. Y2K Revival

Candy-colored sweatpants trends 2021 and 2022

Y2K fashion – The VOU.

Y2K fashion brings back bubblegum pink everything: Metallic jackets, wide-leg denim trousers, bedazzled logos, teeny-tiny bags, denim on denim, and lots of Juicy Couture.

Somehow related to couch clothing (pastel sweatpants and hoodies everywhere), Y2K style (particularly 2000s Emo outfits) will continue in 2024.

Blame it on the idea that once we felt comfortable going outside again, our commitment to comfort didn’t waver.

Moschino Logo-Print Track Pants
Bratz License Print Oversized Hoodie

For example, Y2K sweatpants are reaching a jeans-like status, as almost anything can go with a pair of simple sweats.

The secret to pulling off a Y2K style is not to look frumpy or too formal.

Go for candy-colored sweatpants – the fastest and cheapest way to make you look (and feel) like a fashion icon.


EDITOR’S NOTE

There’s never been a better time to wear candy-colored sweatpants, metallic jackets, and denim on denim.

BRANDS

Simone Rocha, Giambattista Valli, Olivie Theyskens, Balenciaga, Noi Kei Ninomiya, Loewe, Paco Rabanne and Marine Serre






16. Mesh Shirts

Mesh Tops latest fashion trends of 2022

Mesh Shirts – The VOU

Mesh tops took the fashion world by storm last year, and the trend continues in 2024.

Known as the ‘second-skin’ trend, this style grazes on your body so that it might as well be a second layer of skin.

While that may not sound particularly appealing, the number of celebrities rocking mesh shirts – think Marine Serre’s moon-print stretch-jersey top – such as Beyoncé, Adele, Kylie Jenner, and Dua Lipa, is nothing short of stellar.

Dsquared2 Knitted Mesh Top
Plus Dobby Mesh Shirred Smock Top

The fashion trend is a perfect wardrobe go-to, no matter the season, with many ways to fashion sheer blouses, shirts, and underlays.

You can quickly go with our fave mesh long-sleeve top & lace bra combo, but there are other ways to combine and wear sheer tops with your wardrobe faves creatively.

Whether you dress it up or down or layer it up for those chilly evenings, second-skin tops will be your best friend this spring.


EDITOR’S NOTE

Mesh shirts have a super edgy look when layered over a bralette and paired with an oversized leather jacket for a chilly summer night.

BRANDS

Pleats Please Issey Miyake, David Koma, Bottega Veneta, Just Cavalli, Amir Slama, Dolce & Gabbana






17. Knee-High Boots

White Knee-High Boots fashion trends

White Knee-High Boots – The VOU

Swing it back to the ’60s fashion with the classic gogo dancers-inspired item of footwear – white knee-high boots.

Taking its inspiration from the Youth Revolution in the mid-century, this Nancy Sinatra-approved look is a chic way to elevate your outfit.

Paris Texas Pointed Knee-Length Boots
Simmi London Flat Chunky Knee Boot

White knee-high boots are great for a particular reason – they easily match many looks in this or that style and can be worn everywhere, from work to parties.


EDITOR’S NOTE

Wear your boots with a sweater dress, a blazer dress, or a mini skirt to show them off.

BRANDS

Khaite, Isabel Marant, Guidi, Alexander McQueen, AMI Paris, P.A.R.O.S.H.

18. Wide-leg Denim

Oversized pants new trends 2022

Wide Leg Pants – The VOU

For the last ten years, if you had asked a woman to wear pants that weren’t skin-tight, she would have rolled her eyes in disgust.

Last year, we gave skinny jeans and leggings undivided attention, but 2024 will save us from another year of uncomfortably tight jeans.

Marques'Almeida MA BOYFRIEND JNS WD LG HGH RS
Vintage Wash Wide Leg Jeans

Leg-wide, baggy, or puddle-type oversized jeans are finally here.

It wasn’t until this year that wide-leg trousers started popping up on the streets of New York, London, and Paris.


EDITOR’S NOTE

Wide-leg pants are back in fashion with a vengeance. You can wear them slouchy, loose, extra-long, and even baggy if you balance them with a cropped or slim-fitting top.

BRANDS

Comme Des Garçons, Dsquared2, Barrie, Natasha Zinko, colville, Off-White, The Attico






19. Shackets

 Shackets current fashion trends of 2022

Shackets – The VOU.

‘Shackets’ are by far one of my favorite winter outfits!

If you’re new to this trend or spotted it plastered all over your Instagram feed, you may wonder, ‘What is a shacket?’

A ‘shacket’ is pretty much what the name suggests – stylish outdoor clothing that crosses between a shirt and a jacket.

Woolrich Patchwork Check Shacket
Tonal Check Trucker Jacket

Yep, two of your favorite wardrobe pieces combined into one…how great is that?

Imagine a shirt likened to a jacket made of thicker fabrics, has pockets, and can be worn layered up or on its own as outerwear.

With different fabrics, finishes, and details, brushed plaid shackets are among the current fashion trends that can be worn anywhere.

They’re heavier than a flannel shirt but not as bulky as a full coat and perfect if you need to run out.


EDITOR’S NOTE

Shackets look great with most things you’re already wearing, from sweatpants to turtlenecks.

BRANDS

Laura Biagiotti, Maison Margiela, Bottega Veneta, Mugler, Gucci, Versace, Kika Vargas

20. Pastel Suits

Bubblegum Pink fashion trend 2022

Cute bubblegum pink outfits – The VOU.

The bubblegum pink trend was first spotted on the S/S 21 runways and has since entered the fashion must-have pieces.

In 2017, you couldn’t walk into a shop without seeing ‘millennial pink’ outfits everywhere.

It was the color to invest in, loved by style celebrities, sticking around until late last year from clothes to homeware.

Alexander McQueen Single-Breasted Wool Blazer
Oversized Boxy Woven Blazer

However, the upcoming season was already signaling a new pink shade in town: bubblegum pink.

Imagine the Hubba Bubba gum wheel you used to get from the local corner shop, as that’s the hue you’re looking for.

Brighter than the soft, millennial color, it’s punchy, bold, and vibrant – precisely what your wardrobe calls for after what feels like a lifetime in loungewear through multiple lockdowns.

It’s a departure from the neutrals commanding our closets for the past few seasons, but I’m ready to welcome fun into my wardrobe.


EDITOR’S NOTE

Blend your bubblegum pieces with neutral colors, or you risk looking like a Barbie girl doll.

BRANDS

DKNY, Alexander Wang, Paule Ka, BARROW, Christian Dior, Valentino Garavani, Prada, Apparis






21. Tiger Prints

Tiger prints fashion trends of 2022

Tiger Prints – The VOU.

Tiger prints are an update on last year’s pervasive Leopard print pattern.

This year, tiger stripes are showing up on everything from cozy knit sweaters and boxy overcoats to prim blouses and dresses in case you need a break from your sweatshirts and elastic waists.

Once worn by our parents – and our grandparents before them – tiger print is more relevant than ever.

Dolce & Gabbana Tiger Print Sheer Dress
Tiger Print Puff Sleeve Mini Dress

For reference, check out Balenciaga’s SS22, which shows leopard prints in masculine and oversized coats with poppin’ padded shoulders, yellow tights, and large earrings.

Also, Pearlcore, a.k .a. the modern version of ‘ropes and ropes of pearls,’ is going strong with this style.

White Baroque Freshwater Pearl Necklace
White Baroque Freshwater Pearl Necklace

This season, round pearls are taking a break from the limelight in favor of sculptural, almost architectural, statement pearls.

Oversized, off-round, Keshi and Baroque pearls are everywhere.

Opt for a layered look featuring a Baroque pearl strand and a pearl pendant for a cool, urban-chic alternative to the timeless classics.


EDITOR’S NOTE

Match tiger print with a sustainable fashion denim combo, vegan artsy corset, or a multi-colored, eco-friendly gingham suit.

BRANDS

Balmain, Chanel, Chloé, Dolce & Gabbana, Erdem, Molly Goddard, Prada, and Giambattista Valli

22. Disco Ball Look

disco dress fashion trends 2022

Sequins Disco outfits – The VOU.

Whoever said disco was dead has never seen the disco ball fashion style.

The iconic disco ball symbolizing 70s fashion has left its mark on more than just movies and dance moves.

If you long for Studio 54 good old days, packed with the quirkiest breed of celebrities, you will love these disco ball fashion features.

Paco Rabanne Sequin Chain-Disc Mini Dress
Boutique Sequin Skirt 2 in 1 Bodycon Dress

A disco ball may not be very versatile, but it looks right at home on everything from shoes to swimsuits.

As the temperature climbs, so does the number of statement silvery styles for the upcoming season.

The category is mercury rising, with textures in the form of sequins and oversized metallic paillettes, as well as ‘touch me’ ruffles and lurex that shine even brighter when the sun’s out.


EDITOR’S NOTE

Time to pull out all the lurex, glitter, and metallics you didn’t get a chance to don on New Year’s Eve.

BRANDS

Balmain, Burberry, Isabel Marant, Louis Vuitton, Paco Rabanne and Sacai






23. Crochet Ensembles

Crochet Set new fashion trends 2023

Crochet Set Trends – The VOU

Pumped up by Harry Styles and his pop-culture phenomenon ‘Watermelon Sugar video, the 70s fashion style crochet sets are a blowing fashion trend.

The clip features Styles and a group of revelers on the beach, eating fruits while clad in an extensive array of brightly colored crochets, vintage-printed swim, and resort wear.

Since the video launch, the popularity of crochet has continued to rise.

Alanui Multicolour Crochet-design Sleeveless Dress
FarmRio Rainbow Crochet Squares Sweater

According to the fashion search engine Lyst, searches for crochet clothing have risen by 85% since the end of last year, particularly for crochet dresses and sets.

And thanks to Lucy Williams, Bettina Looney, and Chrissy Rutherford, crochet sets are the style of choice for beachside holidays and summer staycations.


EDITOR’S NOTE

Sported by Lucy Williams to Bettina Looney and Chrissy Rutherford, crochet sets have been the style of choice for beachside holidays and summer staycations.

BRANDS

Dolce and Gabbana, Alexander McQueen, Anna Kosturova, Helen Rodel, Katie Jones Knit, Lisa Maree, Alanui, Dion Lee






24. Hoodies under Blazers

Hoodie under blazer latest fashion trend 2023

Hoodies under Blazers – The VOU.

The ever-so-cozy hoodie is one of the most popular styles rocking current fashion trends.

Wearing a blazer with a hoodie is no longer just another street-style cut but a mainstream look transcending generations.

Wearing a quarantine staple-piece hoodie under a blazer adds a stylistic layer to your overall look.

Off-white Oversized Blazer
Everlane The Oversized Blazer

Look for a slim, tapered hoody — preferably a darker, solid hue without too much embroidery or graphics.

Pair it with a dark, solid blazer. Slacks or denim are up to you — either will work, depending on the occasion.


EDITOR’S NOTE

While ‘hoodies under blazers’ combo works wonders with oversized and boxy blazers, if you get a thinner hoodie, you can match it with tailored blazers for a more polished look.

BRANDS

Off White, Gucci, Stussy, Noah NYC, Awake NY, Palace






25. Bomber Jackets

Oversized bomber jacket fashion trends 2022

Oversized Bomber Jackets – The VOU.

Bomber jackets should always rest loosely on your hip – unless you’ve opted for a slightly cropped style.

The clingy cuffs shouldn’t go past or above your wrists, no matter the fit.

Fashion trends: Bomber Jacket
Fashion trends: Bomber Jacket

The cuffs should be tight, so try a smaller size if it hangs over your hand loosely.

In this case, the hues are almost always neutral, empowering the underneath attire for an effortlessly chic aesthetic.


EDITOR’S NOTE

Match it with high-rise socks and trending women’s sneakers, like Air Jordans, for a super-casual London look.

BRANDS

Off White, Stussy, Noah NYC, Awake NY, Palace

26. Cropped Cardigans

Cropped Cardigans new fashion trends 2022

Cropped Cardigans – The VOU.

Popular in the 90s fashion, there’s nothing more trend-defining in contemporary fashion than the humble cropped cardigan.

A vintage-inspired trend kicked off by high brands like Alessandra Rich and LoveShackFancy, quickly copied by Zara and Forever 21, and other fast fashion brands.

Regardless, if putting together a cute outfit seems too much to handle, a skinny knit with a trending style of jeans is the perfect answer.

Fashion trends: Cropped V-neck Cardigan
Fashion trends: White Rib Cardigan Top

Styles range from basic button-ups to embroidered, embellished, or printed knits, so there’s something for everyone.

You can wear these shrunken knits with slip skirts and a leather jacket, especially if you need another layer of protection.

Of course, jeans and boots also complement a cropped cardigan.

However you style it, be it Fairy Grunge or e-Girl, ensure you’ll be comfortable all day long.


EDITOR’S NOTE

Mix your cropped cardigans with lounge-ish sweatpants or a midi skirt for a cute look.

BRANDS

Bethany Williams, Gucci, Faith Connexion, Maison Mihara Yasuhiro, Prada






27. Boiler Suits

Boiler suits fashion trends 2022

Boiler Suit streetwear look – The VOU.

This one-and-done hero piece has cropped up everywhere this year, from the runway to your favorite affordable stores.

It’s easy and cool, and it takes the stress out of picking pants and a shirt – because we all have enough to think about right now.

Traditionally made from heavy canvas or denim, the one-zip wonder was one of many game-changing inventions from the Industrial Revolution.

Fashion trends: Stella McCartney Buttoned Panel Boiler Suit
Tall Denim Pocket Boilersuit

With men’s overalls, comfort and practicality are high on the list.

Also, boiler suites are popular amongst extended sizes, offered by fantastic plus-size and petite clothing brands.

Beloved by celebrities such as Giambattista, the Hadid sisters, Rosie Huntington-Whitely, and Irina Shayk, this versatile all-in-one is your swiftest route to utility chic.


EDITOR’S NOTE

An essential garment if you want to look like a supermodel – add a matching belt to enhance your curves and a designer handbag.

BRANDS

Off White, Stussy, Noah NYC, Awake NY, Palace

28. Puff Sleeves

Puff sleeves current fashion trends 2022

Puff sleeves with torn jeans – The VOU.

Most fashion trends begin as reinterpreted ways of dressing created by celebrities, social, sports, and political events, with the masses reviewing clothes and styles from the past as forms of protest.

However, some fashion trends have staying power, proving to be more than fleeting – and the puff-sleeve style is the perfect example.

The larger-than-life sleeve has been showcased in many variations: the balloon, the Juliet, the leg-of-mutton, and so on.

Marques'Almeida Puff-sleeve Cotton Shirt
White Puff Sleeve Milkmaid Crop Top

However, the puff sleeve trend cracked the fashion veneer in 2018, when the ’80s fashion looks raved the world’s runways.

Fast-forward to this year when supersized sleeves are more popular than ever.

With balloon sleeves on sweaters at Fendi, billowing sleeves attached to pleated shirtdresses at McQueen, perfectly puffed gowns at Rodarte, and double-breasted winter coats at JW Anderson.


EDITOR’S NOTE

Match it with a scarf to create that fresh look on your grocery store run or occasional (and safe!) outdoor dinner.

BRANDS

Philosophy Di Lorenzo Serafini, Gianluca Capannolo, Kenzo, Alpha Industries, Christopher Kane, Maison Margiela






29. Neon Preppy

Color blocking fashion trends 2022

Mixing neon colors to create a “color clash” – The VOU.

Revive your classic Preppy style jackets and romantic ruffles by mixing punch-packing bubblegum pink colors with vivid greens.

Color clashing is a great way to revive your wardrobe and make a fashion statement at no cost.

Tagliatore Jamy Fitted Blazer
Pink Balloon Sleeve Trench Coat

It pairs neon with contrasting colors – or colors you wouldn’t put together – to create unique focal points.

The secret to pulling it off is sticking to simple shapes.

Think classic shifts, maxis, and pencil skirts.

Also, choose shades that are the direct opposites on the color wheel.


EDITOR’S NOTE

Clash pink with yellow, orange with blue, or green with black to create some of the most (effective) visual effects.

BRANDS

Laura Biagiotti, Tod’s, Molly Goddard, Hermes, Fendi, Stella McCartney, and Versace

30. Monochromes

Monochrome Matrix fashion trends of 2022

The “Monochrome Matrix” style – The VOU.

The black-and-white color combo is a no-brainer.

Choose black and white when in doubt, as there’s no pairing as classic as a white button-down and black pants.

However, as the latest fashion trends reveal, it does not mean that if it’s black and white, you can’t experiment.

Whether textural and layered, like Prada’s circle cut-out knits, or classic color-blocking at Louis Vuitton, there’s a monochromatic style trick for everyone – choose which one.


EDITOR’S NOTE

Layer a white shirt under a black mini dress, and combine it with monochrome scarves, belts, and other similar accessories.
