Fashion month has officially arrived and along with it one of my favorite parts: street style. Seeing what editors, buyers, and fashion insiders are wearing to the shows, I always find so much inspiration. The trends really come alive on the street style scene and I’ve missed its absence over the last year and a half. Now that it’s back in full swing, which street style trends can we expect to see during the S/S 22 season?
Curious to get the perspective of the most in-the-know experts, I asked them to weigh in. Here, they’re sharing their fashion predictions with the 5 street style trends they think will be huge during fashion month. The best part is that each of these trends is very wearable, so you can add them to your wardrobe no matter what you’re getting dressed for. Prepare for some great new-season shopping picks ahead. The trend: Waistcoats
"We predict the waistcoat is going to make a big return to street style this fashion month. Paired with a relaxed, white wide leg pant for those warmer days and layered with a shirt or rollneck underneath for when temperatures are cooler, it’s the ultimate street style look. Look to The Row, Giuliva Heritage, and Racil, who all have impeccable iterations." —Libby Jane Page, senior market editor, Net-a-Porter Shop the trend:
The trend: ’90s
"The trends of the nineties and noughties have come back around and stuck. I’m sure a lot of us feel like lockdown life has aged us a bit and the youthful, experimental spirit of Y2K fashion is a welcome counteract. Balenciaga showcased an obvious nod to rave culture within the F/W 21 collection. Prada has resurrected the ’90s-synonymous Cleo bag that has us millennials feeling very sentimental. And Gwyneth Paltrow’s iconic green matching set look from Great Expectations has been updated and reinterpreted by brands like Jacquemus, Christopher Esber, and Mach & Mach for fall. It takes three to make a trend, but with the volume of enthusiasm behind this one, it feels more like a street-style phenomenon." —Jana Hofheimer, buyer, Moda Operandi
