Published On: March 9, 2022

Finally, it’s starting to really warm up. While we hate to say goodbye to fall and spring fashion trends, it’s time for summer to do its thing. That’s right; summer fashion trends are already well on their way to becoming some of the most iconic yet.

Whether it’s a retro fashion line or a classic sundress, it’s time to spice up your wardrobe. Grab your fashion mood board and get inspired by these dominant looks this season.

Let’s examine some of the most notable summer fashion trends and how exactly to capitalize on them with clothing manufacturing.

2022 Summer Fashion Trends

Bright Colors: Forging a More Positive Path

Far from an avant-garde fashion trend, one of the season’s most powerful items is sometimes the most simple.

Bright colors are going to make a huge statement. Simple as that. Whether it’s a bold green dress or a stunning orange skirt, something as simple as solid colors are going to be outfit staples this summer.

In 2021, fashion startups like Cuyana and La Ligne banked on bright colors, coming into play after a dismal year for fashion in 2020. Partly due to struggles with the pandemic and staffing.

After a down year for fashion, startups like these are experiencing unprecedented orders for bright colors.

These are styles that make a statement. Customers were actively seeking more bright colors. Colors are associated with positive ideas and pieces with a flair for fun.

For summer 2022, a fashion trend like this is the perfect way to literally and figuratively brighten up your wardrobe and bring a joie de vivre back to your wardrobe.

And when entering the slow fashion world where people create their own fashion, it’s a great starting point for starting your own clothing line.

In short, when you wear a bold color or pattern, you’re forging a positive path forward.

Platform Shoes

Another summer fashion trend for 2022 is the rise of platform shoes.

Since 2020, people have fawned over platform shoes. And it’s easy to see why. Platforms are making a big statement wherever they pop up. It could be a dazzling part of a pop star’s outfit or a stylish part of a summer wardrobe when vacationing.

They fit right in with some of spring’s most popular looks, namely the emphasis on years gone by. Now that the bygone era of Y2K is screaming onto the scene in a big way, platforms have even more exposure and chances to become a fashion staple not only this season but for the entire decade. Only time will tell, but we’re optimistic.

Regardless, these stylish shoes make a statement, and it’s no different this season.

We love platform shoes because they act as a fantastic accessory to these other styles and are bold fashion statements all their own. In short, platforms will be a powerful piece in your fashion collection.

Maxi Skirts

Maxi skirts, or long skirts that go below the knee and above the ankle, constantly show up in lists of the hottest trends. It’s no different for summer 2022 fashion trends.

The great thing about maxi skirts is that they are highly versatile. They’re often paired with jackets, and simple blouses, too. They’re a fantastic yet uncomplicated evolution of the midi skirt, taking the foundations and making them truly couture.

They reside in the middle of the road. They are neutral enough to avoid avant-garde sensibilities (if that’s not your thing) but creative and versatile enough to instantly have a high fashion vibe. And yes, they are reminiscent of the resurgence of Y2K, too. What items and styles aren’t these days?
