Six months into the year, you might be tempted to overlook 2022's biggest fashion trends in favor of a 24/7 sweatpants existence. Lucky for you, soft clothes are a piece of the 2022 style puzzle. That said, they’re not the only items on deck. 
Nostalgia is the name of the game.
With Y2K fashion peaking higher than ever, the summer and remainder of the year have plenty of fun trends in store. Spotlight-stealing attire with a joyous mood is taking over, from vivid colors and prints to bold silhouettes like bubble dresses, volume tops, cutouts galore, and ultra-low rises on pants and skirts.
Accessories are in on the fun, too. Think: chunky-AF platforms, rainbow-bright bags, and a more-is-more jewelry aesthetic combining beads, pearls, and rhinestone-decked baubles. Oh, and if your 2022 resolution was to adopt a new signature color, you better make it purple — it’s the 2022 hue in all tints, from Pantone’s Very Peri color of the year to saturated violet and lavender shades. 
Ahead, a deeper dive into 2022's biggest fashion trends. Naturally, with an edit to shop.
