1. The Chain

It was more than clear on the runway, lockdown is over and we are ready to break free from its shackles! Chains and metal hardware details on bags have been seen on the runways of Balmain, Versace & Valentino. 

Chances that you own a bag that fits this description are highly likely. The trend has been here for a while and it’s staying with us for spring summer 2022. 

2. Paint The Town

This spring summer we’ll be painting the town in every colour of the rainbow. From canary yellow, to absinth green, powerful reds and feminine lilacs, no colour is to bright, no shade to crazy when it comes to bags.  

Although, leather goods is usually a category in which people stick to the basics: black, camel, … Having a brightly coloured bag in your collection is a good investment. It’s a great way to let an outfit pop. 

Not such a fan of colour? Also glitter and metallics are trending in the bag department for spring summer 2022.

3. Pants dressing

This season we got you covered for the not so sunny days with the dress over pants trend. Spotted on the runways of Jacquemus, Alberta Ferretti and Louis Vuitton the dress over pants look is an easy way to wear that beloved summer dress even on the chilly days. 

Important with this trend is to use a dress that either has a zip or buttons on the front that you can play. Opting for a looser fit that you can style with a big belt is also a stylish option.

6. Show some skin

What started as subtle and delicate cut outs in fall winter of 2021 has now become bold and daring. For spring summer 2022 designers such as Olivier Rousteing at Balmain really took the cut out trend to a next level. 

Dust of those cut out looks from last year and let them shine for another season. Or if you’re really brave take it up notch and show that skin. 


7. Give me a Hoop Hoop

Talking about spring summer trends you already own, hoop earrings go as far back as the early 1920! With the discovery of Tutankhamen’s tomb in 1922, gold hoop earrings represented power and high social status. In the sixties they were popularized by the likes of Cher and Diana Ross who were known for wearing notoriously oversized hoop earrings. Although the eighties weren’t very fond of them, the nineties made more than up for that. 

Hoop earrings have been going in and out of fashion for a long time. Therefore it’s likely that you already own this spring summer 2022 trend. If you want to add some to your collection have a look at  the ones from Edge of Ember, which are sustainable made.
