Fashion trends come and go. How about the 2022 fashion trends? What is the style that had boom in the past era back as before?
It is undeniable that the COVID-19 pandemic, which has not yet subsided, is still affecting the way we dress. Fashion becomes a kind of escape for us to express the creativity that has been hidden due to social restrictions.
Through fashion, we can reflect moods, ideas or hopes. In the context of COVID-19, clothing with certain designs or colors that represent optimism for a better future is predicted to dominate fashion trends this year.
Talking about the future, it can’t be separated from technology. Recently, a number of fashion brands have started to explore NFT as there is a lot of talk about the metaverse.
The following are predictions of clothes and accessories that are predicted to become fashion trends in 2022:

Of the many designer collections presented as 2022 fashion trends in fashion week last year, subordinate hipster which was popular in the early 2000s dominate.
Term hipster here it does not refer to contemporary young people who have an anti-mainstream sense of style, but to subordinate models (skirts or pants) whose cut starts from the hips (hip).
Hipster bottoms had colored the millennial era fashion trends after a number of celebrities wore them. Paris Hilton, Christina Aguilera to Britney Spears, chose hipster skirts and pants as their mainstay when they wanted to exist.
Now, hipster skirts and bottoms get a new touch from the world’s fashion houses. Versace to Chanel bring back these phenomenal fashion items with contemporary styles. Read more here.
2. Loungewear x lingerie

The loungewear trend is predicted to continue this year. However, according to trend predictions from Pinterest, this time loungewear is different from usual because it is combined with a sexy but elegant lingerie aesthetic.
More luxurious materials like silk or something transparent are key to this trend. Dare to try?

In the range of accessories, anything made of pearls will dominate the 2022 fashion trend. In fact, pearls are one of the classic accessories that are timeless. But this year, we’re going to see a version that’s out of the ordinary, in terms of design, shape, and color.
Not only women, pearl accessories for men will also boom. The emergence of male celebrities with these accessories is the trigger. Call it Harry Styles, A$AP Rocky, and Shawn Mendes.
4. More (bright) color
Some of the world’s color specialist companies predict the dominance of bright colors. As reported by WWD, the color reflects a sense of optimism, warmth, growth and enthusiasm after almost two years of living in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
WSGN, for example, predicts orchid flower as one of the colors that will be booming this year. Derived from the magenta palette, this color is believed to emit a positive aura. The light nuance becomes a kind of ‘escape’ to calm oneself from the uncertain situation in today’s world.
There is also a fairy version, the Pantone version of the 2022 color trend. This color is part of the periwinkle palette, the result of a combination of calming blue and very energetic red. The result resembles a soft pastel purple.
5. Fashion goes NFT
Sales of artwork in the form of Non-Fungible Tokens or NFTs are increasingly rampant. The big players in the fashion world did not want to be left behind.
Dolce & Gabbana first introduced the NFT fashion collection last October, followed by Belenciaga and Karl Lagerfeld. Nike also recently purchased virtual shoemaker RTFKT to prepare for the metaverse era.
It’s good for us to be prepared in the face of this 2022 fashion trend. Understand well what are the advantages and disadvantages of NFT fashion products and how they affect the existence of our lives for a better future in the midst of the metaverse ecosystem.
