Get Ready to See These New Street Style Trends All the Time

If there’s one way to get a read on what we’ll actually want to be wearing next season, it’s by examining the street style trends of the previous fashion month. Yes, what comes down the runways is important, but often, what’s happening outside the shows carries more influence, especially in our day-to-day wardrobes. There’s something about seeing real people styling trends for real life (okay, fashion week) that makes them seem much easier to copy.

The street style set—whether it’s editors, influencers, buyers or celebrities—have, for a while now, been following trends and setting them too. Some looks, we admit, can still be a little out there, but a lot of them are just elevated versions of everyday outfits. It’s often clever styling tricks, unexpected combinations or one hero piece that set off trends we end up wearing for many years to come. 

So what was worth taking note of outside the spring/summer 2022 shows? As the fashion crowd were still emerging from a few online-only seasons, showgoers seemed to either embrace a more casual tone or go all out. Knitted dresses, leather staples and waistcoats slung over loose trousers were at the more relaxed end of the scale, and bold suits, miniskirts and colour-pop bags were at the other. Our favourite spot, though? Probably the clever layering of buttery shades of cream that you can bet we’ll be replicating as soon as the risk of muddy puddles subsides.
