With the start of a fresh new year comes fresh new fashion! Although we love cutting edge contemporary styles, we are also showing appreciation for some fan favorite trends. Out with the old, and in with the new age vintage classics.
In 2021 many designers such as Prada, Dior, and Louis Vuitton have taken their most popular styles of the 1990’s and early 2000’s and updated their bags to fit today’s fashion. A perfect example is the Prada Re-Edition bag, Dior Saddle Bag, and Louis Vuitton Pochette Bag. In 2022 we predict seeing more beloved styles from past eras, especially the 2000’s re-emerge in the fashion scene.
Large Statement Bags
After two years of micro bags and mini bags sweeping street style, runways, and social media, we are happy to see larger bags and tote bags come back into style in 2022. Some of the bags we are loving now include the Mulberry Bayswater Tote, Chloe Vermillon Red Hobo Bag, and the Tod's Red Patent Leather Tote Bag.
Oversized 70’s Inspired Sunglasses
Do you need another reason to wear oversized sunglasses? They are a statement piece that will never go out of style. You can find our favorite oversized sunglasses on our website and linked here. Shop the Celine Zoe Wayfarer Sunglasses, Alexander McQueen Cat Eye Sunglasses, and the Dior Gold Enigme Sunglasses.
The Return of Ballet Flats
Our favorite trend from the 2000’s is coming back in style! Remember last year when ballet flats were deemed cheugy? Well you’re in luck if you held onto your favorite flats from 2015. These versatile and practical shoes are back in style, and we are thrilled. Shop the Chanel Brown Cap Toe Ballet Flats, Chanel Silver Glitter Cap Toe Ballet Flats, and the Roger Vivier Gommette Black Patent Leather Ballet Flats
Sleep Wear Inspired Clothing
Sleepwear inspired clothing is a fan favorite trend from 2021 that is here to stay. This trend is a true win for minimalists and fashionistas alike. Minimal effort is required to ace the look, and the end result is totally chic. Shop the Valentino Black Button Up Blouse, The Row Silk Cream Camo Pants, and the Vince Bray Pink Velvet Loafers.
Beachwear Inspired Clothing
This trend can be seen in the Chanel Spring 2022 runway show, highlighting beachwear such as cover ups, sleeveless maxi dresses, and sarongs, as well as their traditional swimwear. Here in New Jersey we are huge fans of this trend coming back into style, we will be living vicariously through this fashion statement, hoping for warm weather. Shop the Tess Giberson Multi-Color Silk Dress in store & online.
Bright colored knitwear is the fad of the season. Another hot Spring runway trend that is predicted to be popular among Gen Z. The trend can be seen in the Missoni, Jonathan Simkhai, and Bevza Spring 2022 shows. Shop the St. John Mandarin Knit Cardigan in-store and online.
