With summer vibes around the corner we can already smell the salty sea air and suntan oil. The gloom and doom that Covid restrictions brought with it can be packed away together with our coats and boots and we can finally embrace long, lazy, carefree days and look forward to endless, maskless, celebratory mingling; events and parties are finally in the pipeline accompanied by a mishmash of summer trends which this year promise something for everyone, from oversized shirts to micro skirts.

Bold colours, feminine flushes, nostalgic, retro moods and an overall festive look define SS22. Ultra low-slung waists which embraced the ‘00s are back with a bang. Mini minis, cut-outs, mega sheer fabrics and psychedelic prints are sure to bring on optimistic glows this season. This summer we are also bestowed with visible lingerie where underwear is the new outerwear and where crochet and mesh trends mean less is more.

Purple is the name of the game this season with shades of lavender being in pole position, creating a calming and carefree summer look. So much so that purple is Pantone’s colour of the year 2022. Bright colours, neon solids and lime-lemon greens and yellows will also grace our shops this season.

Accessories have taken on a curious twist this year, ranging from chunky platforms to fisherman sandals. Oversized and vibrant bags, bedazzled chokers, body chains and rectangular framed sunglasses have also set the stage for 2022.

Needless to say, partywear has come to light this summer like never before and is the top theme amongst most brands. Most dresses are reminiscent of the sparkly 1960 minute sequin dresses.

High on our summer list are highly functional fabrics whereby Oysho keeps up its combo of athletic and leisurewear while Massimo Dutti is big on its ever breathable linen range. Stradivarius introduces a plethora of colourful trousers suits and all time favourite denims and Bershka is adorned with crochets, bermudas and pleated minis. This summer Pull & Bear is all about cut-out dresses, platform sandals, bells, combats and denims.

There is no better time than to declutter your wardrobes and boost your mood with these joyful spring/summer trends. Enjoy this season’s brightness and be sure to express yourselves effortlessly!
