Howdy, this is Talha Sakrani from talhasakrani.com, The Men’s and Women’s Fashion Blog. I’m writing about the Women’s Top 8 Trending Colors of this year, 2022.
Each new year, the fashion industry features select colors that end up defining the trends to follow. Certain color pallets typically accompany each of the seasons and correlate to the seasonal collections that are released. Warmer seasons like spring and summer will feature brighter, more vibrant colors, while cooler months like fall and winter feature moodier, darker colors. An interesting phenomenon has emerged with these colors as well. Luxury designers are beginning a new kind of color trend: Claiming colors as their own. Top designers like Louboutin, Hermes, Bottega Veneta, and many others are honing in on one specific shade to become associated with their brand. These colors are unsurprisingly topping the charts for color trends of the year. Below are our findings for the highest trending colors for the year 2022.
The top trending color of the year gives a bright and dramatic pop to runway outfits seen by designers like Alexander McQueen and Versace: hot pink, specifically fuchsia. This vibrant color called the attention of fashion critics, who in turn placed this highest on the list of color trends for 2022. And it makes sense, seeing as we are witnessing the comeback of trends reminiscent of the 2000s. Bright colors are one of the most recognizable aspects of this earlier time period, and as a result, we are seeing the same pallets reemerge but in a nuanced way. Similarly, the world of fashion was in need of a happy-inducing color pallet to break through the gloomier two years of the pandemic. Fuchsia provides exactly this with its bubbly, energetic influence.
Although periwinkle didn’t end up being the top color of the year as it was originally predicted to be, it did make the list of the most popular colors featured in fashion this year. Designers like Fendi and Valentino were the first to feature this calming color in their collections for the year. Periwinkle has been featured in a variety of pieces such as matching sets, coats, and skirts. More mainstream and affordable brands are featuring color on pieces like tank tops, heels, and hair accessories. This unique shade can be seen on both men and women, making it a versatile and relatable color to wear.
The brand Bottega Veneta has done an incredible job snagging this vibrant color and associating it with their brand. When fashion followers see this shade, it becomes almost immediately associated with their designer purses that have taken the industry by storm this year. Kelly Green is a shade that represents youthfulness and elegance, which is a unique and challenging-to-acquire combination. The shade prominently stands out and is most often seen in shoes, handbags, and coats. Although it is obviously seen in high fashion, it has also made its way to mid-level designers. Some particular brands showcasing this color are Banana Republic, Anthropology, and Alo.
This loud shade has burst its way onto the high fashion scene in a big way. Bright orange is known for its dramatic, vibrant, and eye-catching features. Designers like Michael Kors, Yves Saint Laurent, and Dior included this color in their recent collections. Not only did they include the color, but they also made it the focal point of their pieces. This means entirely bright orange ensembles that demand attention. This can be a difficult color to adorn due to its lack of compatibility with many other shades, but paired with white, cream, or black, it can easily elevate the most simple of outfits.
Purple is a color that is reminiscent of royalty. It provides the illusion of class, sophistication, and pure elegance. Because of this, it is easily understood why a shade of purple made its way to the top trending colors of the year. Lilac, specifically, is a shade that blends easily with more dramatic colors or neutrals. Its versatility makes it an obvious choice for A-list celebrities and high fashion designers. Seen in collections by Miu Mui, Gucci, and Stella McCartney, this stunning color is paving the way for a long-lasting spot on the color trend list.
Representing a rebirth, it should come as no surprise that crisp white is topping the charts for trending shades in 2022. Following the previous two years of the pandemic, the reopening of countries and the ability to attend in-person functions such as runway fashion shows call for a clean, neutral, and elegant shade. Designers like Chanel, Christian Dior, and Yves Saint Laurent keep this shade in their collections year after year. This year, a large host of top designers have made crisp white a focus point of their collections. As a result, we are seeing white infiltrate all areas of fashion, and we don’t expect it to go anywhere anytime soon.
Yellow tends to be an elusive color that typically misses the top of the charts for fashion trends. It is often considered a spring color, thanks in part to its association with the Easter holiday. This year, soft yellow has joined the powerful colors on the trending list and has made a name for itself with designers like Bottega Veneta and Chanel. One of the traits of this shade that makes it versatile is its ability to err on the neutral side. A very soft yellow can pair easily with denim, brown, or black. It allows for dynamic choices in both handbags and accessories while maintaining a muted tone that doesn’t draw much attention. For these reasons, soft yellow can be considered a staple choice for 2022.
Louis Vuitton has done an incredible job at making brown a recognizable color for their brand. Although this luxury designer is easily considered timeless, they have emerged at the top of the desired trends for 2022. And as a result, chocolate brown has infiltrated the fashion scene in handbags, accessories, and apparel. This rich color is perfect for a fall evening but can also be warmed up by adding a colorful piece to tailor to spring weather. Because of its versatility, we expect chocolate brown to stick around through 2023 as well.
