New year, new fashion trends.
Would you like to be inspired or simply want to know which pieces are still wearable this year? In this article, Edith Beauty will show you which trends in sunglasses, headgear, bags, shoes, and more will be popular in 2022. We also give you practical tips for buying accessories.
Sunglasses: big, bigger, oversized
If sunglasses were originally invented to protect the eyes from excessive sunlight, they have long since become a statement accessory for many people. There is hardly a utensil that allows you to express your own mood better. What does that mean for 2022? A dramatic performance.
The big labels are opting for oversized glasses this year. While the French fashion house Celine is only slightly oversized, Sportmax has created a range of XXL sunglasses that look futuristic. Also the labels
- Acne Studios
- Max Mara and
- Nanushka has picked up on this trend & launched sunglasses with huge lenses. These range from modern to avant-garde touches. So this is the exclusive time for everyone who has left their favorite 70s-inspired glasses in the closet for the past few years.
Sunglasses shouldn’t just look good.
However, with all the focus on design, make sure that your eyes are well-protected. Experts recommend UV protection of 400. Depending on the manufacturer, you can also tell this by the “100 percent UV protection” label. In addition, the glasses should offer infrared protection if you spend a lot of time in places with particularly high solar radiation.
Tip: An indication of a protection factor according to EU law is the CE mark. In this case, the models have at least UV protection up to 380 nanometers.
Fake fur hats: cozy and warm
This year it remains cuddly on the head – but the material has changed. While bucket hats with a teddy bear or imitation lambskin were popular in 2021, 2022 will be all about headgear with faux fur. The so-called fake fur hats are still offered as a classic hat or cap with a faux fur border. The eye-catching parts can be optimally combined with leggings in flared style and a leather jacket.
Hairbands and headscarves: practical not only on bad hair days
Once the cool temperatures are finally over and it’s too warm for fake fur hats, fashion experts are opting for headscarves and hairbands this year. This means that the retro vibes trend from the 70s is continuing. The babushka style is not only incredibly practical when driving a convertible but also helps you if you tend to statically charge hair due to the modern synthetic fibers. A trend from the 2000s is making a comeback with hair bands.
The good thing about both trends: The parts are colorful but also available in one color. You either spice up your basic look with accessories or round off a flashy outfit.
Belts: big and flashy vs. small and elegant
In the belt category, the fashion labels are at odds this year. While labels like Dior and Nanushka are celebrating the comeback of wide waist belts, other fashion houses are opting for subtle chain belts.
Both trends have their advantages:
- wide waist belts conjure up a wonderful hourglass figure and skilfully draw attention to your waist
- subtle chain belts go perfectly with midi dresses and make them look classier
- both waist belts and chain belts go well with plain-colored looks
Pay attention to the information in the product description.
No matter which variant you choose: pay attention to the quality of the materials. Details such as “color: gold/silver” or “in gold/silver” indicates that the belt buckles are fake. The consequences are not only unsightly discolorations on the material but possibly also allergic reactions.
Watches: practical and sustainable
While the accessories used to be rather large and conspicuous, things are now becoming simpler on the wrist: the days of bling-bling, garish colors, and wide models are over for the time being. Most watch manufacturers rely on an elegant two-tone look for their products in 2022.
Not only classic precious metals are used as material, but also marble and wood are possible. This should now also address the topic of sustainability in the watch world. The goal of many manufacturers is that watches are something special again; they may even become an investment. This is a counter-movement to fast fashion.
This can also be seen in the movements: while digital watches have dominated in recent years, more and more manufacturers are relying on mechanical movements and displays. Of course, that doesn’t mean that you have to do without the progress of recent years – many models combine a retro look and technical sophistication.
Shoes: it’s going to be chunky
This year, shoe designers swear by chunky soles. Therefore, this year you will find them in many online stores and stores.
- Trekking sandals
- Chunky loafers and
- dad sneakers
Find. Depending on the material of the shoes, the shoes can be combined well with denim and leather looks. If you like it more elegant, you might be happy about the trend toward “square toe shoes.” The square toe cap has the great advantage that narrow toe caps are finally a thing of the past. In 2022, shoes should be comfortable above all.
Of course, you should always pay attention to the origin of the materials when it comes to shoes. More and more manufacturers rely on fair trade organic cotton and eco-leather. The latter is considered more sustainable because it’s not usually tanned with chrome but with a substance like acacia extract. This not only increases your wearing comfort and the lifespan of the shoes. It also allows them to be 100 percent recycled again.
Lanyard, mobile phone chain, and co. as practical everyday helpers
Are you also constantly looking for keys, mobile phones, glasses, or other utensils? There will finally be solutions for this in 2022: accessories to hang around your neck. Even coffee mugs or gloves are redesigned so that they can no longer be lost. The chains and ribbons used are not only practical but can often be used directly as necklaces.
Handbags: elegant and small
Since we can now wear more and more accessories, handbags are getting smaller again. The main trends this year are:
- Chain Bags (handbags with chain handles)
- Curve Bags (handbags with a round shape)
- Mini Bags (handbags in mini format)
- Volume Bags (puffed or quilted clutches)
One exception is Market Bags. The web pockets are reminiscent of the classic shopping companions of our parents and great-grandparents – but were reinterpreted. Meanwhile, the shopping networks adorn logos of large labels like Burberry, Longchamp, and even Prada.
Hair Jewelry: Hair clips become accessory
If so-called Bobby pins and other hair clips in recent years are a priority practically, hair clips are now becoming a real eye-catcher. More and more labels offer models with eye-catching logo prints, beads, and rhinestones.
The great thing about this trend: If your wardrobe accommodates primarily basic pieces, you can transfer your loved parts and enhance your outfit with eye-catching bands. Especially Low Buns (a Dutt, which is carried deep in the neck) you can spice up.
