Following a month of international Fashion Weeks — from New York to London; Milan to Paris — runway enthusiasts may start thinking of the warm-weather trends that will define their wardrobe come spring. Frankly, it’s hard not to; the fashion parading down the runway at shows like Coach, Kate Spade, and Christian Siriano takes optimistic spring dressing to a whole new level. In fact, the spring 2022 trends were so good, you’re probably ready to incorporate some looks into your wardrobe now. The good news? That isn’t as hard as you may think.
A ton of trends emerged at Fashion Week that you easily can mix into your wardrobe, stat. And although they span decades of influence, they have one singular thing in common: Each and every one is about wearable fashion that makes a bold statement. They’re reminders to the world that there is a life to be enjoyed outside of the confines of stay-at-home orders.
From the 2000s, Spring will bring us feather trim (which celebs like Hailey Bieber have already started wearing). Sixties-era mod mini suiting is here, and classic trenches from Old Hollywood times are back for another spin — just to name a few. Consider getting a head start on the spring 2022 trends below with all the styles you can shop right now.

Mini Skirt Suiting
Mod is back when it comes to your suiting this spring, and it’s a trend that you can jump on right now. Draw inspiration from shows like Carolina Herrera and shop for matching sets of minis and blazers to wear all year long.
The early aughts are returning with the most voluminous trend of all. The antithesis to ’90s minimalism, ’00s bubble-hem skirts and dresses are back for another trip around the sun, starting with the collections of Khaite, Jason Wu, and more.
According to designers like Staud and Brandon Maxwell, it’s time to add some whimsy to your wardrobe by way of feathered trim. Just like you used to in the late 2000s — and like celebrities à la Hailey Bieber do today — take that fun-loving, blowing-in-the-breeze texture and add it to everything from skirt to sweaters. No piece of clothing is off limits.
Go for a picnic-inspired look this season: It was all over the spring runways at shows like Prabal Gurung, in silhouettes that ranged from swimwear to midi skirts.
Keep it classic with a trench this season — and all year long. Hitting it big on the spring runways of Carolina Herrera and 3.1 Phillip Lim, it’s a classic trend that’ll never go out of style. Layer it over heavy knits now and wispy cotton tanks later.
Garden florals from Ulla Johnson, Altuzarra, and more are an obvious choice for spring, but the muted tones and ditsy, blurred patterns work for fall as well. Opt for midi skirts, bustier dresses, and camisoles to layer under heavier tweed jackets, and style them with ’70s-inspired denim trends.
