2022 has arrived and with it a lot of fashion forecasting from the world’s top editors, designers and magazines. Here’s our round up of some of the popular trends we’re predicting we’ll be seeing a lot more of this year and also styles that we are excited to play with ourselves. Remember the trick with trends is to only add the pieces that appeal to you and feel natural! Just because it’s trending doesn’t mean you need to overhaul your wardrobe. Have fun and start off small with a new trend and if you’re still unsure – come in and see our team that can help you get experimental without losing your own personal style.

Loungerie will be the New Activewear

Not too long ago it wasn’t acceptable to wear leggings or sweats outside the gym or home and now it’s one of the biggest trends in fashion. According to editors and the latest looks on the catwalks, loungerie is set to be the new activewear. It’s been a staple in French Girl Style (and also here at Calexico). In fact, we’ve long been fans of showing a peek of a bra under an unbuttoned blouse or sheer top – and it looks like we’re going to be seeing more of our underwear incorporated into our outside the bedroom looks. Think silk blouses, slips paired with sneakers, camis paired with jeans, and for the extra adventurous bralettes under a blazer - no shirt needed.

Pearl Jewellery, Actually Pearl Everything Will Be Big

Although timeless and elegant, pearls were formerly considered old-fashioned but designers have incorporated them in fresh (pun intended) new ways that can be worn by anyone and at any age. And we’re not just talking in the jewellery department, pearls are appearing as embellishments in ready to wear, lingerie, and shoes.

Mood Boosting Brights

It’s being called the year of colour by many fashion gurus with basically every colour of the rainbow being celebrated. In particular block colours and neons are making strong appearances such as electric blues, oranges and fuschia and expected to be in high demand even over winter months. As fashion is all about making a statement in a way that makes you feel good, finding bold colours that complement your skin is a great way to bring in this trend.

Matchy Matchy But Make It Elegant

Coordinates may take you back to childhood but matching sets have come a long way and the latest take on matching sets is true elegance. We love these sets in silk and satin from Alexis and Forte Forte that have a glamorous 70s vibe and are a timeless investment. Looking for something more casual but still elevated? We have a tonne of summer print shirts and short sets from The Sei as well as ALC and Isabel Marant. You can even mix and match them with other wardrobe pieces to add extra outfits into your rotation.
