Go big with your colour choices, or go home.
According to WWD, the biggest colour trends of 2022 are “rooted in optimism, warmth, growth and excitement”. All good if you ask us. Two years of loungewear and alternating between day and night pyjamas means that we’re more than ready for fashion to be fun again… especially as we take those tentative first steps back towards normality.
Dressing for the outside is somewhat of a novelty still. I’m sure the monotony of having to pick out a new outfit to wear every single day will seep back in at some point, but for now, we’re revelling in the freedom that an almost post-Covid world allows. Don’t get us wrong – coordinating tracksuits, silk robes and soft-as-a-cloud slippers will still all have a place in our wardrobe, we’ll just be opting for bright hues over muted tones going forward.
So, what colours look set to be big? Trend forecasters such as Pantone, WSGN and Etsy started releasing their colour predictions in early December last year, and they all agreed that fashion will be dominated by statement pieces that demand attention. Think varying shades of pink, orange, green, yellow and blue; basically anything vibrant that draws the eye.
As Irish people, we went straight to green (it is our national colour, after all) and we scoured the internet for inspiration so you don’t have to. Shop our edit below.
