Spring 2022 trends from NYFW

The last model has walked off the runway in New York, and the last video has been released. This means we have a whole new set of fabulous trends to covet for the upcoming spring/summer 2022 season. Love!

There are several trends from last year which appear to be continuing into 2022. We are looking at the continuation of the Power Suit, vivid colors, all-white ensembles, exaggerated shoulders, shoulder pads, and wide leg pants.

As we head into 2022, look for more tailoring on clothing in general. Loungewear is taking a backseat, as is urban street-wear. We are looking at getting dressed again. Think skirts, dresses, and powerful pants. Handbags are medium to small, and will hold only the necessities.

The decades of influence include the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. Think late1900s. There will be grown-up florals, groundbreaking right? haha, and solid, all-one-hue ensembles. Orange, baby blue and pink appear to be the favorite hues of New York designers for spring/summer 2022. The orange power suit will be huge, HUGE!!!

We are also looking forward to daytime sequins, one-shoulder looks, blazers over anything, and much more structure than we have seen in recent seasons; even with wider leg pants. Get ready to dress up!

So, if you are looking at what to keep, store, donate, or sell from your closet, keep and store anything structured, or in brighter hues. Keep blazers, one-shoulder looks, and sequins. Donate extra loungewear, you only need some, not a closet full! Same with sweatpants, only keep what you need for the gym or wearing around the house. Next spring, casual days will include jeans with blazers and casual dresses. Sweatpants and flip-flops can stay home. That being said, look for comfort sandals and street sneakers paired with dresses and dress pants in spring 2022. Your feet can stay happy.

Spring 2022 Color Trends from Pantone and NYFW

New York Fashion Week is underway! This means new and fabulous trends to covet for the upcoming spring/summer 2022 season. On the first day of New York Fashion Week every season, Pantone releases their color report which features the top colors from the runways in New York. Of course, they are always fabulous.

The spring 2022 season looks to remain bright, but maybe not as bright, as spring 2021. Designers are favoring vivid hues as well as breezy shades of neutrals. It looks like the perfect season to go pastel one day, and vivid the next! Love!

I am a huge blue fan. These shades of blue are getting me excited for a new wardrobe in the spring season. I will definitely need one! Not only is the stay-at-home thing over, if you have been following along, you know I lost thirty pounds this year. So, a new wardrobe next spring will be in order.

My two favorite colors from the spring/summer 2022 color palette are “Glacier Lake” and Harbor Blue.” Which colors are your favorites?

Thanks for stopping by!

Fall 2021 shoe trends

The fall 2021 shoe trends this year should come as no surprise. We are seeing a huge continuation of ’90’s inspired footwear including lug soles, block heels, loafers, and metal bits. Grunge and post-grunge footwear is hotter than hot season, so if you saved anything from that era, you’re in luck! If you are like me, and you did not, check your closet for these styles from last year or the year before. After you shop your closet, shop the stores to fill in what you need for the season! I recommend having, at a minimum, one pair of lug sole boots, and one pair of loafers with a bit and some sort of heel.

In addition to ’90’s vibes, street sneakers are continuing to be the ultimate go-to shoe for everyday life; and they are proving to be a status symbol beyond just limited edition drop shoes. Any sneakers you find with designer logos are hot this season. Owning a pair of designer sneakers, in any style, is fabulous this fall season. Also look for adidas “Stan Smith” sneakers. This iconic style is already the hottest sneaker style of the fall 2021 shopping season; and they happen to be under $100 per pair. I am investing in two pairs from adidas.

These are really the two main types of shoe styles we all need for the fall 2021 season. Also keep in mind neutral hues are important colors for footwear this fall. Your boots and loafers should be black or a shade of brown. Stay away from bright hues on your leather shoes. Save the bright colors for apparel.

When it comes to sneakers, any color goes! While white with a colored heel are the hottest style of the season, any color which catches your eye is on trend for autumn. Have fun with your sneakers! Snap up a pair of adidas Stan Smith sneakers, and then add a sneaker style from your favorite designer. Your feet will be very happy and comfortable this fall 2021 season! Love!

Also, pay attention to the details. Square toes are still trending, as well as sculpted heels, block heels, lug soles, chunky soles, and metal details such as chains, bits, and studs.
