According to experts and professionals within the fashion and style industry who spoke to Insider, an online magazine and newspaper, these are the top trends to stay abreast of if you want to make sure you’re looking like one of the cool kids.

The 1990s bucket-hats Are Here To Stay

Sahra Schukraft Brandt is the founder of Shop the City. Brandt reminds us of the returning trends of the 1990s that have graced the street-style scenes of the new 20s. She says those reclaimed looks are here to stay, with the bucket-hat being the number one piece that you’re sure to see.

Power suits will Be Worn

Jasie Style is a  fashion and wardrobe stylist for the wealthy. Style says there’s one outfit that is sure to be a favorite in 2022 for many, and that is the power suit.

“These power suits are colorful, beautiful fabrics, and bold designs,” Style told Insider. “More modern women have stepped into the leadership space since the pandemic and are focusing on expanding their business endeavors and looking professional while doing such.”

Say Goodbye To Skinny Jeans

Maria Juvakka is a fashion influencer at Chic Pursuit. Juvakka says you should expect to see baggier denim continue to rise in popularity.

Sustainable wear is Gaining in Popularity

Kat Eves, a stylist to the stars, says that sustainable and ethical fashion is making an impact.

“I expect 2022 is going to be all about ethical and sustainable fashion… So expect to see more and more celebrities and trendsetters rewearing items or gowns or choosing more and more vintage gowns — just as Zendaya did in her recent vintage Roberto Cavalli gown, styled by Law Roach.”

Bold Accessories Are perfect for Black Tie Events

The Scandinavian jewelry designer, Fie Isolde, says that the oversized chains we saw popularized in 2021 are still a staple.

“Bold-link chains along with cocktail rings will set the tone for your outfit in 2022… People want to leave a mark and make a statement.”
