We finished Fashion Month, and it’s time to discover what trends will dominate next season. Here’s a rundown of what we’ll be wearing in Fall 22.

Like the seasons, our wardrobe changes every four months. In recent weeks, we saw the new collections from some of the most important fashion brands in the world. After thousands of outfits, hundreds of shows, and visits to the four different fashion capitals around the world, we can finally pick out the strongest trends of the Fall 22 season.

Artsy, psychedelic, animal, or floral prints to neutral tones like beige, black and white. Mini- or XL -kirts, fitted silhouettes, and oversized garments. Leather and lace. Futuristic and avant-garde outfits. The Fall 22 collections embodied a range of aesthetics, resulting in endless possibilities that suit any style. Here are eight of the strongest trends we saw at the Fall 22 shows, from New York to Paris, from London to Milan.

Second skin

During the Fall 22 runway shows, one thing was clear: leather–or vegan alternatives– will be the season’s most popular material, whether in coats, jackets, shirts, skirts, and pants. The versatility of these garments is incredible. You can opt for total look in leather or just a garment that gives an edgy touch to your outfit. Go for that rebellious aesthetic or a more sexy, feminine look. The options are endless.
