Spring and Summer Fashion Trends

With the arrival of a new season, there has also been an arrival of new styles and trends to be worn on runways and viewed on social media platforms.  Styles ranging from shorter hemlines to classics have been a part of the main trends of Spring 2022.  

“As the weather changes, I also like to change my style,” stated Broderick Harrison, Sophomore.

Prada’s S/S 22 collection included barely-there micro miniskirts paired with ribbed polo tops and pointed slingback high heels.  Other designers such as Alexander McQueen, made a leather jacket a staple in their runway shows.  Fashion models wore a leather jacket with button-up shirts, loose jeans, and loafers.  Miu Miu’s spring 2022 collection included low-rise jeans with a baggy fit paired with pullover sweaters, trench coats, and loafers.  Many other outfits included loose-fit pants such as loose tailoring trousers that were worn with knit tops or oversized button downs.  

“I like reading magazines to know what the next trends are,” stated Emily Leach, Sophomore.

The aesthetic of many of these well-known brands’ spring collections was a preppy look.  Models embodied this aesthetic with a collared bodysuit, short skirt, sky-high platform heels and basic accessories.  There has even been a return of many old trends such as the bomber jacket.  Since 2016 bomber jackets have been an essential fashion piece and been worn by fashion icons such as, Kylie and Kendall Jenner, Hailey Bieber on a regular basis.  Brands like Prada, Versace, and Stella McCartney have included bomber jackets in their 2022 collections.  Bomber jackets have been sytled with leggings, sneakers, racerbacks, and bodysuits.

Fashion influencers use social media platforms such as Youtube, Instagram, and TikTok to show how they style their spring outfits.
