Three trends that we think will be a great hit this year, all according to MFW Fall 2022.
A fun game I like to play whenever fashion month rolls in is figuring out which trends will trickle down to the gen pop. Sometimes, a designer’s idea is too out there that it is almost impossible to see it on a regular body. For the most part, however, designers are good at hinting at which items have a high chance of becoming a commercial success. It might take a season or two before these trends start to show up to your local boutique, but it couldn’t hurt to stay ahead of the game. Below are three trends we think will be a great hit this year, all according to MFW.
White Tank Tops
Crisp, white tank tops that looked like they came straight out of a three-pack Hanes bundle were not only in one but two runway shows this season. Prada and Bottega Veneta casually dressed their models in the basic top. Prada styled theirs with a sheer midi skirt which at first seemed questionable (if you base it on High Fashion Twitter’s point-of-view), but when you look closely, it’s actually very Miuccia Prada. Bottega Veneta on the other hand styled theirs casually with not-so-casual bottoms— a pair of leather pants that looked like denim (yes, those “jeans” are actually leather).
Denim of All Kinds—Yes, low-waist style included
Speaking of denim, designers seem to have had their fun in recreating every denim style imaginable. Diesel alone showed us everything we can expect to come in the denim category. Low-waist, frayed waistlines, cargo pants slash boots combo and mini skirts that are the size of belts are only some of the few styles we need to look out for. Trussardi also had a couple of looks with low-waist jeans, which only confirms that low-waist jeans are coming back to the rotation. As you’re reading this, a prayer circle for the victims of the early 2000s low-waist jeans era has begun. Send thoughts and prayers.
Gloves, because why not?
Fashion has acquired a weird obsession with covering as much skin as possible. First, it was the balaclavas, now it’s gloves. Fendi, Max Mara and MM6 Maison Margiela are among the few who featured gloves on the runway. Think of this as a sign to buy gloves in preparation for next winter. The more dramatic, the better.
