2022 year in review

Goodbye 2022 and Hello 2023

Where did 2022 go? This year flew by! That being said, it was an eventful year. Let’s ditch the trends from 2022, which are starting to look dated, and let’s welcome in the new year of trends to embrace and rock. So, without further ado, here are the trends we are saying goodbye to, and the ones we are welcoming in the new year!

Goodbye 2022

Very Peri: Goodbye beautiful periwinkle hue! Despite being so last year, I am still in love with you. Until we meet again. . .

Balenciaga: Ew

Oversized slouchy bags: Stop trying to make garbage bag sized bags happen, they are not going to happen.

Fast fashion: Consumers are waking up to the wasteful world of fast fashion. Stop spending your hard earned dollars at retailers who exploit their workers and destroy the environment.

“Look rich” handbags: handbags that people wear to look rich are so over. Sell them on consignment to an unsuspecting soul, or store them for Halloween. You know the ones I am talking about. They’re done.

Skinny jeans: RIP everyone’s favorite pair of jeans. We must store them for now.

Logo belts: Ditch the logo belt. All they do is shout to the world that you paid too much for your belt. Attempting to look rich is out. Sell the logo belt or store it, just don’t be caught wearing it.

Hello 2023

Viva Magenta: Hello party hue! This fun and bold hue is everything in the new year. Be sure to add it to your wardrobe, your interior design, and life in general. Viva Magenta!

Clean brands: Look at designers and brands with clean advertising campaigns such as Tory Burch, Kate Spade, Ralph Lauren, and more. Keep it clean in the new year.

Mini top handle bags: Mini bags are back. Apparently no-one was able to part with them. Look for mini bags in all forms and watch for the explosion of mini lady bags. The single top handle satchel in a shrunken size is all the rage in the new year.

Investment dressing: There is a return to classic pieces which can be worn year after year. Look for high quality pieces which create a wardrobe and transcend trends. Also, look for brands and designers who are more conscious of the environment and treat their workers well. This can be tricky, there is a learning curve we are all trying to absorb. We can work on this together.

Anonymous handbags: The hottest handbags are the ones people have to ask you about. Look for emerging designers or designers who don’t splash their label all over the bag. Think Mansur Gavriel, Demellier, Polene, and any clean looking bag. Only those who know, know.

Wide leg and flare jeans: Wide leg and flare jeans are where it’s at in the new year! Think 1970s chic.

Unidentifiable belt buckles: Look for high-quality, long-lasting belts with buckles that don’t give away the brand or designer too easily. The triangle from Bottega Veneta is OK, but you don’t want obvious logos on your buckle.
