Spring 2022 street sneakers are here! For the spring 2022 season, street sneakers are back, and this season, they are more individual, special, and downright funky.

Gone are the days of the simple white sneaker, or the understated street sneaker. For the spring 2022 season, we are looking at bright colors, mixed colors, avant-garde designs, platforms, and unique sneakers other people are not wearing. Instead of season-long styles we can think about for a couple of months and then purchase, many sneaker brands, such as Nike and adidas, are releasing limited inventory which sells out within seconds of being released. While this is nothing new in the sneaker world, it has gone mainstream for spring 2022, everyone wants sneakers other people don’t have.

Of course, with scarcity, comes… well, scarcity! If you cannot get your hands on a pair of limited-edition sneakers, you will reach for the next best thing, which is what is on trend. The hottest trends in sneakers for spring 2022 are the platform. If you already invested in the Gucci platforms, you’re golden! If not, the converse platforms are also hot this season. Seriously, they might be the IT sneaker of the season, and they happen to be affordable. Love that!

The black pair featured above, is the current IT sneaker of the season. My daughter is rocking them on an almost-daily basis, in addition to her Nike Dunks, which were of course, limited edition. That’s what’s hot!

I am loving my Gucci platforms and switching things up with the funky Nike’s pictured above. In addition, I love a classic boat shoe with shorts on warmer days. This is a good sneaker wardrobe for the spring season, and also moving into the summer. I recommend investing in one platform shoe, one funky pair which could be limited edition if you can snag a pair of Dunk’s, Air Jordan’s, or Air Force One’s, and also a classic pair of boat shoes or canvas sneakers you can pair with shorts on warmer days.

Spring is here! This means we all need to make sure we have the hottest handbags front and center in our closets. Luckily, a lot of the spring 2022 handbag trends might already be in our closets, and we just need to move them forward. Love that!

There are five hot spring 2022 handbag trends to covet this warm weather season, and hopefully you already own a handbag in at least one category. So, without further ado, here are the five hottest handbag trends for the spring 2022 season.

  1. The Small Square Tote: Small, square totes are hotter than hot this season. They offer a square silhouette, small size, and often will be found with an alternate cross body strap to make day-to-day life easy. You can snap an investment version from Dior, or you can find a more affordable version from Coach. Either way, you will look fabulous.
  2. The Small Top Handle Bag: Thankfully you don’t have to go micro-mini or nano in this trend, unless you really want to. You can rock the small top handle bag trend, or Lady Bag trend, with a small bag which still fits your wallet and phone. These handbags also tend to come with a cross body strap, making them easy to wear everyday. Love!
  3. The Hobo Bag: This trend started last year, and it is continuing into 2022. You can rock it with a structured version, or a soft version. There are also moon shaped bags and shoulder bags which offer a hobo look. If you haven’t already found your hobo bag for 2022, there is one out there for you.
  4. The Bucket Bag: This trend was hot a few years ago, and it’s back! You can go with a traditional cinch bucket such as the classic one pictured above, or one fashioned after a flower pot silhouette, or cylinder. You will find a lot of versions of the bucket on store shelves. Pick the one that speaks to you. Or, you can be like me and stick with the classic that has been hot since 2014. Your choice.
  5. The Pouch: Lastly, let’s talk about the pouch. This handbag style has been popular for a few years now. I own a few in different sizes as well as one with a funky chain strap. This is a great style to wear casual or dressy. If you own a pouch, keep rocking it! If you have been eyeing this trend for awhile, snap one up now.

Well, there you have it! The five hottest spring 2022 handbag trends to wear now. Which trend is your favorite?

Power suit spring 2022

Power suit spring 2022 from left: sunglasses / golden drop earrings / vintage scarf (also love this one) / blue double-breasted blazer / white layering tee / spring nail polish / golden ring / black top handle bag / blue trousers / pointed toe slingbacks / black single-breasted blazer / blue mini tote bag / black trousers /

The power suit is back, and it’s the most versatile set you can own. A classic blazer and a classic pair of trousers can turn into multiple outfits and take you through an entire week in the office, or an entire week of lunch, dinner, shopping excursions, the theater, and more! This is the best trend to reemerge from the last century, and I am here for it!

Of course, the power suit can be worn alone and evokes a sense of self-confidence, chic-ness, and power. In addition, the blazer and trousers and can easily be paired with other items in your closet, making multiple outfits for the season. If you can only buy two items for spring, buy a power suit!

Let’s start with the blazer. It can be worn with jeans, a denim skirt, shorts (huge trend for summer-more on that later), and a prairie skirt for a structured vs. unstructured look, which will also be hot later this year. The blazer can also be worn over a dress. It’s a great way to instantly update an entire closet. Bright colors are on trend for spring 2022, but if a bright suit isn’t your thing, look for classic black; you can never go wrong with black.

The trousers are so amazing! You can dress down trousers with a top and street sneakers, or pair them with heels and satin top for a night on the town. Looking for a daytime look? Try a blouse, puff sleeve tee, or satin top with trousers and flats, you will look chic and sophisticated. Love that!

Do you work in a conservative office environment? You may already own a classic black suit, why not add one fun and colorful suit for the year?! Bright blue, orange, yellow, and green are the hottest hues in suiting this spring 2022 season. Orange is actually the trendiest color if you want to be cutting edge. I chose blue because, well, I love blue!

Casual Friday outfits can benefit from your power suit too! I am not a fan of jeans on casual Friday, I think they are too casual. A pair of trousers with a nice blouse, slim sweater, or top is an ideal casual Friday look. If it’s chilly, you can add a tweed blazer or tweed jacket to finish off the look.

Simple necklines are hot for spring 2022. When accessorizing your power suit for spring 2022, keep your neckline simple. I have a hard time with that, so I like to add a vintage scarf or a necklace with a pendant. It’s still simple but adds a little somethin’ somethin’.
