Key Fashion Trends Seen at AAFW 22
Colourful Off Duty Suiting
The seductive appeal of chiffon, lace and mesh comes back in the form of slip dresses, tops and tunics. Another invitation to unleash what was hidden after months of isolation, sheer fabrics are relevant and chic if you carry them tastefully .
Sass & Bide
As I mentioned before we’ve been observing a collision of proposals aimed to celebrate the body, netting is a very revealing way to do so, but even if you are on the modest and conservative side of fashion, netting can be an interesting layering element when paired with tops, shirts, and dresses, without showing any skin at all.
One Shoulder tops and dresses
One shoulder garments never go out of style, in fact bringing this asymmetric element can be quite flattering and work in our favour, but for what is worth, they are quite relevant this season, being spotted in several runways such as Torannce, Matteau and Gyre.
Sartorial Maxi Coats
The perfect excuse to update our staples repertoire, a perfectly tailored maxi coat can elevate our style with simplicity and sophistication – the tip to keep these garments evergreen is compromising on a neutral palette that’s always easy to mix and match.
Against all odds, the Cut-outs trend is proving its longevity and with multiple ways to display this trend in a garment, it shows no signs of a slow-down; seen in a variety of styles one chic way to sport cut-outs is via oblique cut out blazers and dresses just as this Rummer number; a more audacious approach was spotted during the Aaizel show with diagonal cut tops, while Sass and bide proposed a more seductive take with silky gowns exposing the torso
Regencycore Inspired garments
Blame it on Bridgerton! We’ll be seeing certain opulence, romanticism and a more gilded aesthetic via puff sleeves, volume, bows, head pieces, and even opera gloves. While is not a practical aesthetic to carry these days – with the exception of certain occasions- there are ways to incorporate and reinterpret it with a more contemporary approach, your imagination is the limit!
Sass & Bide
Silk/ Sateen slip dresses
A 90’s revival with timeless factor, to call it a trend is an understatement since its versatility makes it quite a wardrobe staple. We’ve seen a surge of sleep dresses in several collections around the world and is easy to see why, -its simplicity makes it a smart and appropriate garment for many scenarios.
