Fall 2022 is all about the basics, AKA the simple, everyday pieces that you’ve probably invested in long ago. However, just because white tank tops and balck dress pants are being considered the season’s “It” items doesn’t mean you have to wear them in a toned-down or business casual way. On the contrary, the runways and the fashion girls have shown us that there are are ton of ways to spice up these staples. So, if you’re looking to reinvent your closet and spend $0 on your fun Fall wardrobe, it’s time to try these quick tips, ahead. Fall and winter fashion trends are the ones that true fashion fans get excited about, with a definite back-to-school feel, this is an opportunity for a fresh fashion start. It’s easy to get excited about the new season but when it comes to investing in style to update your wardrobe, think about what trends will suit you and work with your existing wardrobe rather than plunging in head first.
Tank Top/ Sport Luxe
It’s possible you’ve been rocking tank top all summer long and the good news is, the piece is sticking around for fall, too. While it may have felt like fashion stopped for two years, our time away from getting dressed up has impacted on tastes in more ways than one. The best joggers, once reserved for working out or sofa surfing, are now a firm wardrobe favorite for many of us and designers are listening. Bottega Veneta, Chloe, and Prada all sent this classic top down the runway, teaming it with a ton of different bottom options.
Take inspiration from the Fall 2022 fashion trends with a full leather look or statement piece. Bottega Veneta’s catwalk featured trenches, trousers and full skirts with undulating fringing peeking out, while fashion editor favourite Chloé featured a variety of looks including head to toe statement leather and French designer Isabel Marant showed lust-worthy leather dungarees.
The Little Black Dress is a blank canvas and the perfect piece to make all your own. Amp it up with accessories, like a belt, or chunky boots, whatever speaks to your personal style and creativity. Michael Kors, Isabel Marant, and Louis Vuitton are just a few of the major brands who worked one into their collection, whether they produced a leather version or layered it over a shirt.
When in doubt, layer with a blazer, it’s a motto I’ve always lived by and designers seem to agree. At Burberry, a boxy version was paired with a metallic skirt, while Balmain’s moto pants received an elevated twist thanks to a shiny black blazer. If you’re looking for that last piece that will pull your outfit together, a blazer will come to the rescue. No matter which type you choose, you can layer it over everything from sweater dresses to jumpsuits for that final touch of something special.
There’s just something cool about the bomber jacket. Designers are leaning into the fearless vibe a great leather jacket can broadcast, announcing that you can go fly a plane or wear white trousers outside all day in the city on a moment’s notice—shearling optional.
If you thought sequins were just for Christmas, think again shiny paillettes are back and they’re everywhere, literally. The AW 2022 fashion trends emerging from the runways saw Bottega Venetta, Altuzarra and Christian Cowan showcase high shine looks that featured head to toe sequins.
Extreme knitwear is the name of the game as we head into Fall. This season sees the best jumpers, scarves and all manner of knitted pieces go supersized. British designer Molly Goddard teamed her signature tulle dresses and skirts with oversized argyle and fair isle knits while Louis Vuitton showed head to toe wool in a knitted monochrome two-piece suit.
A new coat is a great way to update your winter wardrobe and the runways were full of faux fur, brights and fun patterns in a variety of cuts and silhouettes. Trends come and go, but a statement coat will always prevail. Cue fluffy faux furs and striking prints; throwing on bold outwear will guarantee an uplift to what can be an otherwise minimal outfit with little effort.
Fashion is a game of extremes, while heightened hemlines strode down the runway, at the other end of the style spectrum there were also plenty of designers who chose to go to extreme lengths with maxi dresses and skirts. Floor sweeping styles were seen on the runways at the likes of Molly Goddard, Acne, Louis Vuitton, Missoni and Saint Laurent. The silhouette of the moment is extra long and close to the body, though not uncomfortably so. It’s less about showing every curve and more about creating a long line. After so many seasons of baggy and oversized-only proportions, it feels right on time.
