Comfort remains key in spring summer ’22, but the season’s looser silhouettes make a statement elsewhere with dramatic shapes, rich textures and elements of carefully curated destruction. Music to the ears of anyone who likes to marry high fashion with everyday practicality or those who prefer punchier denim over the more subtle designs of early ‘21. To stay ahead of the pack, opt for wide, slouchy or barrel-legged jeans from the likes of Levi's and Diesel, choosing light-wash dyes ready for longer days and shorter nights. Expanding the look further, ripped knees, acid-wash and frayed hems are in, offering a fresh take on ‘90s grunge.
Where high-waisted jeans dominated the fall winter runways, this season sees an overall more 80s aesthetic. The hips are inside and designers are embracing a lower look and a wider, hugging silhouette. Bright, breezy, nostalgic and perfect for warmer climates. Watch Gas and Replay which have casual comfort down to an art. The delicate fringed and faded indigo shades work wonders when paired with a punchy summer palette of teal pinks, yellows, and blues. The brighter, the better.
