Spring 2022 brought back baker’s boy hat, a rancher hat, and a hat with a veil.

HATS YOU WILL WEAR ON A GOOD HAIR DAY, TOO

Indeed, the crochet trend is big for summer hats 2022. Everyone is wearing a crochet hat now – when they are not wearing 1920s swim cap, or a baseball cap, obviously.

It won’t be long until the next big event, where we can finally re-emerge looking our very best. Let us bring some glamour back! Every once in a while, we need a transformative moment and a one-of-a-kind pieces to steal the spotlight.

Oversized checks will be very fashionable for fall winter 2022/23, too.

Stylish short cardigans are perfect for those chilly spring mornings.

Embrace throwback elegance with a collared cardigan or a cardigan with pearls that is perfect for a casual dinner date or a night out, too.

Something knitted is not essential only for spring 2022 but for summer 2022, also.

SUMMER KNITS TO ADD TO YOUR SUMMER CAPSULE WARDROBE IMMEDIATELY

For summer 2022 fill your closet with a cropped cardigancardigan sethalterneck knit topshort sleeve sweaterknitted polo shirtfront tie rib cardigancropped knit tank topfuzzy knit crop top, and crochet swimwear.

Surely you can find fashionable knitwear that matches your style. I’m adding these knitted pieces.

CO-ORD SETS

Prepare for the season ahead by snapping up hey pieces that will mix and match seamlessly with what you already own. Double down on a co-ord set that looks great together or styled solo.

I bought myself this chic tweed skirtsuit. And I plan to buy this yellow pantsuit next.

JACKETS AND OUTWEAR

Thinking about how to stay warm as the weather stays cold? Spring layering is all about layering up without sacrificing style.

Try this padded jacket or a diamond-quilted jacket, or fall for the irresistible charm of this season’s most fashionable jacket – oversized bomber jacket.

TRENCH COAT IS A MUST ADD TO YOUR CAPSULE WARDROBE

On the other hand, a trench coat will never lead you astray. A trench coat is a wardrobe staple worthy of investing in.

I have this chic taffeta trench coat. You might want the same taffeta trench coat, too, to keep the look modern.

THE MOST FASHIONABLE SPRING JACKETS

An instant pick-me-up, a beautiful jacket is the one item that really pulls an outfit together. I plan to buy this stunning tweed jacket from Sandro and this trendy cropped leather jacket for more casual spring ensembles.

I already have this denim jacket, but I also need a chic moto jacket (this one, too), a leather jacket with fringes, a color-block zip-up track jacket, and this wind jacket for rainy spring days.

Ps. Get a stylish windbreaker to do away with dull rainy day styles that don’t excite.

BLAZERS THAT SHOULDN’T MISS IN YOUR CAPSULE WARDROBE

As you manage a full day’s schedule, you will need some stylish blazers that are equally hard-working.

I already have an oversized double-breasted blazer; therefore I will only shop for this tweed blazerthis houndstooth blazer and a new boyfriend blazer – all from Sandro Paris.

For summer 2022, I plan to buy this oversized single-breasted blazerthis yellow blazer, and this white blazer – all from Pinko.

Why only from Sandro and Pinko? Because Pinko and Sandro Paris make the most fashionable and quality blazers. Their blazers don’t wrinkle, don’t look outworn the moment you take them out of the box. Plus, they are easy to style all season long.

SUMMER JACKETS TO WEAR OVER A CROP TOP

For not so warm summer nights, I will get cropped fine tweed jacket and a neon leather jacket that goes seamlessly well on my new skirt.

SKIRTS

Summer 2022 brings infinite possibilities for what lies ahead. Get excited for mini lengths and new skirt trends.

Get a mini fitted skirt, a mini skirt with slit cutouts, a mini belted skirt, a mini leather skirt, a mini tweed skirtwaist cutout skirtwrap skirtruched mini skirttowelling mini skirt, a mini black skirtmini skirt with feather trim, a crochet mini skirt, and the No.1 most fashionable skirt of the season – low waist mini skirt.

SOME OF THE TRENDY SKIRTS I’VE ALREADY BOUGHT AND FASHIONABLE SKIRTS I STILL HAVE TO BUY FOR SS22

Live life to the fullest with vibrant splashes of colour. Mini orange skirt exudes a fiery passion, while a pink mini knit skirt (I have that one, too) will colour your mood in anticipation of spring.

Worry not; if you are not into the mini lengths, you can shop for a long 90s skirt, a long fringe skirt, or hi-low skirt, instead. The long 90s skirt is the second skirt trend you can follow in summer 2022.

PANTS

If you prefer pants over skirts, shop for low rise pantslow rise straight pantslow rise cargo pantsY2K low rise cargo pantswide-leg utility pantssilver pantspatent leather leggingsstraight leather pantswide leg trouserbermudasequin shorts, or tweed hotpants – I just bought these.

Embrace the versatility of denim as you wear it with everything from pretty cardigans and simple shirts to going out tops.

Get a pair of trendy dark navy jeans; you will reach for those on a daily. I sure do.

For summer 2022 shop for low rise straight jeanslight blue jeansbaggy jeansdistressed jeansembellished jeansoversized jeans, and white boyfriend jeans. Oh yes, we wear denim in summer, too.

Bring some denim into the summer mix with bermuda jeans, and frayed denim shorts, too. They are both on trend for summer 2022.

SPRING SUMMER TOPS AND BLOUSES

Optimize your spring summer wardrobe by investing in items that will never disappoint. Look for signature silhouettes like white T-shirtsilk slip top and classic fabrications like a silk blouse (buY the way, I recently bought this shell button-down silk shirt and I just purchased this chic bow-tie silk blouse) for tried and tested styles destined to become mainstays you reach for time and time again.

SWIMWEAR

We are all dying to feel the warmth of the sun and sea. If you are already planning your well-deserved summer break, make sure you don’t forget to take fashionable swimwear with you.

Pack a trendy Tarzan bikinistring bikini, strapping swimsuit, a tube bikini top, a cutout swimsuitfloss tie bikini,  orange swimwearhigh-leg cut swimsuitcrochet bikiniscarf tie swimsuit, or a square neckline swimsuit that doubles up as a bodysuit for the city.

If you are reminiscing about halcyon days of vintage glamour, try fashionable cutout gathered recycled halterneck swimsuithalterneck bikinihalterneck swimsuitcrisscross halterneck bikini, or monokini, this summer.

Or perhaps bikini with waist jewellery, and swimwear with O-ring. You will love those details that add a fashion forward element to a typical beach look.

There is something irresistibly chic about wearing print on the beach, too. Everyone stylish will wear swimwear in cheetah print this summer.

On the other hand, a fashionable plunging V-neck swimsuit with 90s style skirt, a square neckline bikini top with shorts, or swimwear set with matching loose pants is the perfect bridge as we transition from lounging on the sand to lunch in the shade.

CATSUIT

Playsuit? No, we wear a catsuit this season. In fact, the catsuit trend is the only trend you need to follow if you want to be fashionable for summer 2022. All you need is a pair of fashionable shoes to match the catsuit and you are ready to go.

SUMMER SHOES AND SANDALS

Step into spring in the most fashionable shoes of the season. I hope you are not afraid of the heights because 2022 brought back high pointy stilettos and platforms.

Worry not; the platforms and extremely high pointy heels are not the only spring summer 2022 shoe trends trending for spring summer 2022. Nevertheless, once you see all those stunning platforms I bought/will buy for myself, you will immediately forget about other shoe trends.

So, what platforms will I buy for spring summer 2022? These Versace platform pumps – they are first on my list, platform loafersthese woven platform slidersthese platform Mary Janes, and these Aquazzura platform sandals. Ps. I have actually just purchased those stunning platform sandals.

For the beach, get these padded thong sandalsclogs or puffy slides.

SUMMER SHOES FOR WORK

While sandals are not business formal, you can wear squishy sandals for work, too. Although I bet, you will want to seize the chance and wear your Valentino Garavani Rockstud leather pumps to work this summer. They are back in fashion! Just like second skin ballet flats.

Oh yes, ballet flats are fashionable again. I bought these buckled ballerinas for summer 2022. They go great on my new wide-leg pants. Surely, I will walk around in trendy pointy flats during the heatwave, but having at least one pair of summer-rain shoes is somehow a must.

For early spring rain, invest in trendy silver bootswedge bootsneon pointy toe bootsthigh-high bootslace-up military boots, or combat boots. By the way, doc Martens are very popular for spring 2022. I will get these pretty pink combat Dr Martens boots for myself.
