AW22 Trend Guide

Big shapes, preppy vibes and timeless nostalgia define the must-have trends from this season’s hottest runways and luxury brands.




The way that brands such as Versace and Chanel are using checks this season has got us very excited for the heritage pattern. From grungy tartans to sophisticated tweeds, there’s nothing plain about plaid. When it comes to shopping sustainably, timeless check tailoring is one of the best investments you can make. For day, keep the palette toned down and classic with blazers by Sandro and Banana Republic, and pair them with a loose-fitting check shirt by Boss or a vintage dress that you can style with white sneakers and a cute bag by Tory Burch. By night, let the wilder check tones loose. A bold houndstooth mini-dress paired with bright coloured heels is sure to be a show-stopper.

The Canadian tuxedo, aka head-to-toe denim was once a fashion faux pas but now it’s one of the strongest looks of the season. A casual trucker jacket and jeans is tough to beat, especially when you throw in some distressed details to give it a grungy edge. Great denim is hard to kill, so think about finding vintage pieces to mix with more contemporary styles. A denim shirt by Levi's or Mavi Jeans looks super cool styled with a denim midi skirt by the likes of Aritzia and a pair of denim heels. If you just want to dip your toe into the trend, then a midi-dress with chunky shoes and a neutral tone bag will still bring out the best in blue.

Calvin Klein

The North Face

Some trends require effort, whereas others are a single knock-out garment that can transform your wardrobe. This season’s puffer jacket is most definitely in the latter category as brands such as Mackage, Versace and Moose Knuckles pumped up their silhouettes with larger-than-life puffer jackets. From oversized cropped jackets to long-line coats by Calvin Klein and Aritzia, puffers keep the cold out and the compliments coming in. Dodge patterns and let block colours do the talking by keeping the rest of your look tonal and by playing with different textures such as wool and leather. Chunky puffers require chunky boots to balance out the volume so reach for black or tonal styles by AllSaints or sign off the look with chunky sneakers instead.

If there’s a garment to make a statement with this season, make it a faux fur coat. Voluminous, sexy, and tactile, faux fur coats were all over the runways at Saint Laurent and Bottega Veneta to name a few. So what’s the furry vibe? Think big silhouettes: we’re transfixed by the oversized long-line coats by the likes of Ted Baker. Look for styles with exaggerated shawl collars or belted options that feel like you’re being hugged by a bear. Keep the tones seasonal with brown, grey and black, or use bolder blues, lilac and gold for more of instant impact. The beauty of these beasts is you can layer them on top of anything and look instantly glamorous.
