We may transition to warmer temperatures and are starting to look for lighter clothes, but our sweatshirts remain our must have piece. Elevate your look and make it couture in your daily life.

Slip on your cozy maxi dress and style it for every occasion. This type of dress style has always been versatile; going to a wedding? Dress it up with jewellery and heels. Going at the office?

Summer is approaching and we can’t stop thinking of which outfits to get for that perfect summer vacation. Think no more: the bermuda shorts are your solution. This classic piece is making its comeback for SS22 in all types of colors and patterns.

Pair it with your favorite « cozy » piece, the sweatshirt, and make a statement with your footwear, for instance white running sneakers with tube socks. If you can’t wait until summer to wear this look, throw on your favorite leather jacket and you have the perfect spring look!
5. Cinch It with Neon
One picture two trends. This spring summer 2022 season it’s all about creating shape on the body. And which best accessory to do that with? The belt of course. Whether you’re all about a simple monochrome belt or a statement heavy metal belt, this season it’s time to get them out of your wardrobe and elevate your look.
Styling tip? Pair them with neon.
Neon might not be the easiest color to pull off, but if you get it right it can really work. Team up neon separates, a skirt, a shirt, a jacket etc., with your basics, for instance a white sweatshirt and you will have created a mesmerizing look.
6. Oversized Outerwear
Slouchy overcoats, boxy puffer jackets and lengthly parkas have been popular for some years now and will continue in the next seasons too. The reason why we love this trend so much and keep wearing it, is that it gives us the ability to layer.
Styling tip? Get creative with your pieces underneath.
Style it with your luxe loungewear and some jeans and add the must‑have shoe trend: the commando boot, an elegant and low profile boot option. For a more fashion forward look, if you are too daring, complete this look with a statement belt bag piece, and you’ll have the coolest outfit.
7. Statement Chokers
Statement jewellery is obviously not a new trend. Jewellery is timeless, whether it’s a new piece trending now or pieces passed on for generations, all jewellery trends are bound to stay. This spring 2022 there is an evolution in chains and hoops entering the oversized universe.
Styling tip? Bigger may be better.
One way to make a statement with your jewellery is to combine it with one of your basic outfits, for instance a monochrome sweatshirt. With the right chunky necklace your outfit will look even more stylish. For the ones who dare, look for extravagant necklaces to wear with your sweatshirt, because it seems that for this season the motto is go big or go home.
8. The Bomber Jacket
Over the last five years the bomber and puffer jacket have become a wardrobe staple. You can now find these jackets in every color, style and pattern, and style them for almost any occasion. Wear it over your sweatshirt to keep warm and don’t be afraid to try different sizes. Depending on your look choose the cropped or the oversized version.
Styling tip? Expand your horizon this season.
Be amazed by the spectrum of bags that dominated this season’s runways, from suitcases to duffles, to backpacks, cross bodies and totes. Be daring and opt for an all‑purpose tote bag to complete your look. This look can be worn by both women and men.
9. Outerwear Lingerie
In 2020 we saw all sorts of lingerie pieces work their way into the collections of many designers. We started loving fancy bra tops under our blazers and slip dresses for our summer evenings. Corsets and bustiers were also anticipated until the pandemic hit and we all fell in love with loungewear. While sweatshirts and joggers are the must‑have pieces of the moment, corsets and bustiers also raised to the top trends of SS22.
Some will consider these two trends complete opposites and just pick one. But we love them both and choose to combine them.
Styling tip? Show it, don’t hide it.
You want a look that will make you feel straight out of a runway? Wear your favorite tracksuit set, add a corset on top, some heeled sandals and finish your look with your fanciest belt bag that will give you that extra spice.
10. The Convertible Belt Bag
This season pockets are over; now you can store everything you need in one place and be very fashionable. Belt bags or cross body bags are a practical and trendy option for every man and woman. Worn around your waist, over the shoulder or across your torso, this design can be worn for every occasion.

11. Statement Trousers
We can all agree by now that sweatshirts and joggers have become our favorite fashion pieces for these WFH days. Now, we are all starting to think what to wear next. Of course sweatshirts and joggers have taken up a big space into our hearts and wardrobes but it’s time to create bolder and trendier looks.
