As the heat rises, it's time to pull out flowy silhouettes, cotton dresses and a few of our favourite colours. Think pastel hues, vibrant shades and an array of colours; with spring in full swing we know that those winter clothes are safely stowed away. So as bright sunny days begin to take over our life, it's time to take note of the key SS'22 trends and add to your wardrobe a few new trendy pieces. To make the task easier for you, we've curated a list of some must-have summer essentials that are sure to make you command a whole lot of attention!
"Florals for spring? Groundbreaking!" - might be the most used dialogue, but no matter what, each year florals make a reappearance. With a new avatar, florals are now an evergreen summer staple, and a floral dress is more so! Opt for pastel hues, in contemporary and flowy silhouettes, just like this one from Poppi for your summer soiree.
Accessories often work as the finishing touch for any look; and if truth be told, they can instantly transform your OOTD. Take your white dress up a notch, as you pair it with this unique Fendi X Antonio Lopez Peekaboo bag to get heads turning.
Co-ord It Up
Just like sneakers have become an MVP, so have co-ord sets. Be it a pantsuit, skirt suit, or simply a skirt and top, matching top wear and bottom wear is the biggest trans-seasonal trend of the 2020s. So get on board with the trend this summer as you pick up a co-ord set just like this one from Goados that's breathable, comfortable and super chic. Dress it up with statement hoops and a bag for a night affair or keep it minimal with sneakers for the daytime.
The biggest bag trend for summer 2022? Semi-circle bags! While unconventional bag shapes made an appearance back in 2019, Outhouse recently brought them back to the runway as they showcased their collection “OH Dopamine” at the FDCI x Lakmé Fashion Week on the 23rd of March 2022. Be it a day at the beach or in the city, this will see you through all occasions. And all we can say is we are in love!
Nothing says summer like soft, feminine pastel shades. But if you're not a fan of pastel-coloured clothing, why not add summer's favourite colour palette to your footwear style? Let delicate pastels take centre stage as you pick out your favourite heels or flats from Charles & Keith's latest collection Blooming Spring.
Muted colour palettes, baggy silhouettes and comfortable clothing wins over everything in the hot and humid months; and a baggy white shirt is quintessential. Amp your fashion game as your pair Drawn's minimalistic white shirt with your favourite wide-legged denim for a casual-chic look.
Stand out from the crowd this season as you pick out a dress from the all-new Nikhil Thampi X Crimsoune Club collection. Edgy and modern with a grand flair this sartorial shirt dress will make you a true trendsetter. What's more? The subtle fluorescent accents will ensure it commands all the attention.
Dresses are the best option when it comes to dressing formally in the summer. While cotton dressed may seem too casual for a nighttime affair, we recommend trying Kazo's printed silk dress that's sophisticated at once and elegant too! Pair it with heels and sparkling large studs for the best look.
Make your summer sliders luxurious with the MANOLO BLAHNIK X BIRKENSTOCK collaboration. Slip into luxury without compromising on fashion as soon as you enter your room. The rhinestone embellishments make them a great choice even for a day out.
A Pop Of Colour
Green has been the colour of 2021 and is carrying forward even in 2022. While previously one steered clear of the vibrant parrot green hue, today it's flooded on the runway and in all high-street stores. But if you're not experimental enough to wear the colour, try adding it to your look with the help of accessories just like this leather bag from Tiger Marrón X Nitya Arora. The snake print leather makes this a chic and stylish option.
If comfort is a priority, the Lovebirds Spring Summer 2022 collection has you covered. Playing with colours and silhouettes, this easy-breezy skirt and shirt will see you through the bright sunny days.
