The fresh start of the new year brings a fresh load of styles to work into our wardrobes. Unluckily for some, there is not a lot of loungewear insight, instead, these styles are bold and body-empowering pieces. 

Ahead, are predictions to some 2022 trends that may already be sitting in your closet, along with some tips for how to wear them right now: 

Cutouts 

Yes, the cutout trend will stay thriving. Cutouts are proving to be far more of a long-term look than any of us initially gave them credit for. The flashes of skin that can be seen in almost every type of clothing piece will only continue to grow in popularity as we head into 2022. 

Additionally, spring will bring a lot more asymmetrical cuts with intricate layering. 

Clothing with cutout pieces can be styled up or down, making them an ideal piece to have in your closet. 

Color blocking combinations

Instagram feeds and the runways have convinced us that maybe a combination of saturated hues isn’t such a bad idea. 

The key 2022 hues are a yellowish orange, calming blue, plant-based green, creamy shade of butter, and an electrifying pink. The beginning of the year is all about in-your-face color combos that are right on the verge of clashing. 

It is best to stick to solid hues for a custom color-blocked outfit.

Knitwear

As we saw the 2021 summer brightened up by groovy knitwear, the new season will continue celebrating knitted garments in comfy yet flattering silhouettes. Try out skirts, dresses, coats, and more for a cozy look that will keep you warm without too many layers. Even better, it’s a great way to add a bit of texture to a simpler styling pair. 

These are just a few of the many styles we can look forward to styling in the new year.
