The topic of fashion aesthetics is my favourite to cover here at Who What Wear, as it lets me dive into little style worlds that I may not take a look at regularly. It seems like a new term to describe one's style pops up on the internet every month, and while the looks behind each aesthetic aren't revolutionary, coining a term can help others navigate each and pinpoint what works best for their own personal style. Narrowing the looks down to individual pieces can be overwhelming for some, so seeing them stylized for particular lifestyles can make them more accessible, especially for people who have trouble putting outfits together.
I made my share of predictions for the aesthetics that would rule in 2022, and to my excitement, almost every one has come true. From the Regency-era princesscore look (thanks, Bridgerton) to the outfits that let you channel your inner grandma by the shore, the options this summer are endless. I rounded up outfits for each aesthetic, so whether you want to experiment with each or find your summer match, you can keep on scrolling.

A bucket hat and a lightweight matching set are the ideal coastal uniform.
