Summer 2022 fashion forecast

Although the weather has felt more like fall than summer, the season is inevitably coming. As soon as the temperature reaches 75 degrees and the sun is shining, leggings and long sleeves will be ditched. It’s time to stock up on some new wardrobe staples coming this summer.

The 2022 summer fashion forecast calls for deconstructed, low rise and bright colors with a chance of a few matching sets here and there. Now is the time to feel ultra-sexy and channel your utmost confidence. This summer forecast will not let you hide in boring patterns and colors. Here are six predictions as to what you’ll be seeing this season, so you can get a jump start with your summer shopping:

Mini anything

Pretty anything ‘mini’ will be in this summer. A mini top with some baggier pants or a mini skirt with a longer top is a great way to show off what you love most about your body. You can even wear a mini top and mini bottoms for a night out on the town. Wearing smaller pieces of clothing can help to highlight your accessories, too, so make sure to stock up on jewelry and sunglasses.

Bright, neon colors

Wearing bright colors is a repeated trend from past summer’s fashion. However, extend the trend by picking up a pair of neon shoes and bright-colored jewelry. If you’re gonna go big, go home. The chunky plastic neon shoes will be around the next few months and should always be paired with at least one other neon clothing item or accessory. Don’t forget to have fun with it and step outside your comfort zone.

Low-waisted bottoms

Low-waisted pants and skirts are coming back to the spotlight, and now is the time to give the trend a try. You can pair low-waisted jeans with a fitted graphic tee to run some errands or wear a low mini skirt to go out with some friends. Either way, you’re going to look fabulous. The best part is many of these items can be found at your local thrift store.

Matching sets

These have been trendy for quite some time now, but they truly never tire. Wearing a matching set is quick and easy to throw on while looking put together and fashionable. You can find sets for nearly any occasion and they come in many different styles.

Strappy tops

The more complicated the top is to get on, the better. Strappy tops are extremely flattering and dress up nearly any outfit. Many different styles are appropriate for different occasions, too. The thicker straps are great for going out to dinner or for a stroll on the beach, while the thinner and smaller straps look amazing paired with a mini skirt for a night out.


Similar to last summer, dresses and other pieces of clothing with cutouts will be seen this year. No matter how big or how many there are, cutouts spice up any shirt, skirt, dress or pants. If you have an old tank top or skirt, grab a pair of scissors and make your own design. Overall, these clothing items look amazing on any body type and accentuate your every curve.
