Get ahead of the style game with key trends for Autumn Winter 2022 that you can actually wear. As summer comes to an end it’s time to start thinking about how you’re going to beat the cold with the latest hot fashion trends. This year it’s all about adaptability, so say farewell to minimalist pieces and say hello to more texture, bold colours, and over-sized clothing. Think about investing in the trends that will suit you and work with your existing wardrobe, to help your money go further and avoid plunging in head-first. Here is our pick of the top winter trends worth knowing about.
Colour up your coats and knitwear for an easy take on this trend. The 2022 catwalks were flooded with hot pinks, magenta, tangerine orange and other colours of the rainbow, so it’s time to get colourful. Another way to do vibrancy is through accessories or to team bright colourways with more understated colours, such as black or grey jeans.
While the puffer coats and jackets were never really out of style, they make a big come back this winter. Think jackets in multiple textures from longline puffers and trench coats to gilets, shorter styles and even quilted leather.
Think preppy meets Y2K! Shorter skirts hit the catwalks in a renewed burst of energy with tweed, pleats and checks to give it a “back to school” feel. Many of us can shy away from shorter hemlines, so team with thicker, high denier tights for a smoother silhouette. When it comes to checks there is a style to suit every taste from dogtooth to Prince of Wales. Monochrome patterns are the most versatile as they can be teamed with a variety of block colours.
Head-to-toe denim was big trend, and let’s face it denim never really goes out of style. It’s a much-loved wardrobe staple which will continue through winter 2022. Play with patchwork styles, texture, range of washes and colourful denim that is anything but dull. We’re loving this pink denim jacket for a twist on the traditional look which can be worn right now.
Animal Inspired Prints
There are many strong prints and patterns coming through in autumn winter 2022, but luxe leopard and subtle zebra were the ones that really stood out for us as part of this maximalist trend. A little will go a long way and is easy to team with everyday denim or leggings.
