Summer Styles People Are Already Loving | Trend Report
Summer fashion trends 2022 are very similar to the Spring fashion trends so no need to do a complete wardrobe overhaul and your platforms can stay in rotation. Summer trends still have that 90s and Y2K influence such as lots of minis and platforms, as well as flatforms and gladiator sandals. Think summer styles with lots of color, along with glam and retro styles inspired by the Spring Summer 2022 runway shows by Chanel, Versace, Balmain, Fendi, etc. Such as periwinkle blue, green, yellow, pink and lavender.
Ultra femme, business appropriate outfits that were big last year and that are also great for post work cocktails e.g. bralettes and suits are still a big Summer 2022 fashion trend. Except we’re swapping out our tailored suits for wide leg pant suits or a mini skirt suit.
These Summer styles for 2022 are gorgeous, playful and made to be super wearable.

Bralettes & Crop Tops
A trend that was big last year and is still going strong for summer fashion 2022. If bralettes aren’t motivation to tone up I don’t know what is. With midriffs more on show it’s either be brave or put in some extra gym time and get juicing. There are so many pretty styles from Versace prints to soft black lace to sports bras you can find a style that’s yours.
My Versace crop top is actually part of a vintage Versace skirt set.
How to style a bralette in 2022
The beauty of bralettes is that they’re so versatile. Some bralette styling ideas include:
- Under a blazer
- With a mini skirt suit
- With wide leg pants
- Styled with shorts
- Layered under a sheer top for that 90’s/Y2K look
Wide leg trousers
Wide leg trousers are one of the pant styles I always love seeing come back as they’re so comfy but also smart. Dress them up or down to fit into your lifestyle, combine with the bralette trend or style with a crips white t-shirt and blazer.
I’ve linked some gorgeous white Cult Gaia and Max Mara wide leg pants as well as some more affordable options from ASOS.
Of course Heidi Klum nails this look styled with a crisp white, wide leg pant suit. Thanks to the Bridgerton Netflix series, expect lots more regency era fashion like corsets and feminine maxi dresses to be seen this Summer.
Prepare for statement dressing in 2022 with the brightest and boldest colors. For the most on looks, seek style inspiration from Versace’s colorful 2022 runway looks.
Summer Fashion Trends 2022 | Cut Outs
Cut outs replace last years flossing trend. This trend was seen all over the Spring Summer 2022 runways and is easier to pull off than you think. If having your entire midriff out doesn’t appeal, look for side and back cut outs inside. Equally sexy but a lot easier to wear to dinner.
The great thing about this Summer 2022 fashion trend is that it’s easy to dress up or down with different shoes and accessories. From beachy casual to evening glam.
Mini skirts and dresses
Mini skirts and dresses are back for Summer fashion 2022. Styled with platform heels to give us impossibly long looking legs. This is a styling hack I absolutely love as I’ll take all of the help I can get to look taller. If mini skirts aren’t in your comfort zone, swap them out for skorts or rompers that look like mini dresses like this one from Amanda Uprichard that’s selling out fast (sizing runs true to size).
Platforms and flatforms
One of the comfiest heels I’m so glad to see again as they’re so good for cheating longer legs. Plus they tend to be so much more comfortable than stiletto heels.
