– FASHION TRNDZ –

talhasakrani.com

Most fashion brands have already released their ready to wear SS23 collections, and fashion lovers everywhere have some pieces already added to cart. Gucci, Balenciaga, Chanel, Chloe, Isabel Marant, and many other designers have showcased their exceptional SS23 collections, and here are the spring/summer 2023 fashion trends to watch out for.

Top spring/summer 2023 fashion trends from the runways

As top fashion brands release their ready to wear SS23 collections, there are many notable themes recurring throughout these collections. In the last few seasons, we have seen numerous fashion lovers embracing the bling and logo frenzy of the early 2000s as well as apocalyptic avant-garde styles with Balenciaga right in the middle.

Most trends usually evolve into better versions from season to season, so for SS23, what trends will be progressing? Recently, we have been on a MC-bling era, with the return of low-rise jeans and bagettes. As fashion continues to evolve, there might be a shift/update to a more grunge Y2K version. Here are some trends you might see more of in SS23.

1.  Grunge

The 90s were the peak of grunge fashion. The Y2K trend might be here for a while, but you should expect to see a shift in aesthetic with more moody, dark colors, and grunge inspired makeup.

2. Back to basics

Maximalism has taken the spotlight for a while now, with people embracing chunky jewelry, over the top accessories, and bold colors. For instance, from the Isabel Marant runway, the SS23 collection is bringing back the staples, but with a twist in design. Expect to see contrasts in stitching, asymmetric necklines, and deconstructed tops.

3. Sheer dresses

Sheer dresses are being elevated from beach cover ups to every-day outfits, especially for girls who like risqué fashion. While most may think sheer dresses are risky, there is a creative aspect that comes in when styling the sheer dress without fear of wardrobe mishaps. They can be worn over sexy lingerie or as statement silhouettes and embellishments.

4. Dress over pants

Unexpected layering combinations are about to take over the fashion pages. There is a large amount of dresses to choose from. Based on your aesthetic, you can come up with a completely different look multiple times. Whether it’s pairing a long tunic dress with trousers or wearing a bralette and denim under a netted dress, you have numerous styling options.

The SS23 trends are exciting, but the most exciting part will be seeing how people play around with their wardrobe and the mini-trends that will come as a result of this creativity. For SS23, we’re hoping to see a lot of repair and reparations, with a more fashionable and sustainable fashion crowd.

What's your style for SS23? Let me know in the comments below.

BELLA HADID MAKES TRENDY HEADLINES

Bella Hadid has trended the talk of Paris Fashion Week 2022. After having a “magical” white garment spray-painted on her while walking the runway.

Following their appearance at the Coperni fashion show on Friday, The 25-year-old supermodel and her DIY latex garment gained notoriety on September 30th.

FASHION DESIGNERS

METAVERSE AGE

If a fashion designer desires to be “experimental” in 2022, they might show a collection in the metaverse. Allow NFT purchases to access their most recent accessory release, or print a QR code on a show invitation that gives you cryptocurrency. You can use it to buy a digital shoe for your avatar somewhere.

1990s

Back in the 1990s, when a performance was referred to as “experimental,” it appeared to be Alexander McQueen spinning a flailing Shalom Harlow on a wooden turntable. Two spray-painting robots painted her multilayered, white-as-paper dress with neon-yellow and black paint while it was fastened to her chest with a belt. Everyone who was present remembers the audience at that spring 1999 show. They all noticed him pushing forward and gaping in shock when Harlow came with black paint dripping from her collarbones.

TRENDING Bella had a dress spray-painted

BELLA’S EVENT

It was one of the most famous fashion moments in history, and everyone was talking about it in Paris. Not because Shalom Harlow is having a runway renaissance, though she is, by the way! Bella wore an outfit on her body with Fabrican. A substance from a can that solidifies into wearable fabric, to close the Coperni Spring 2022 fashion presentation. The event honored “women of this world.” In the show notes, designers Sébastien Meyer and Arnaud Vaillan wrote, “To you, women who transcend your body and never lower your gaze before the barbed wire of morality.”

Bella’s dress was not ready until the middle of the show, when audience members got to see the dress being made in front of their very own eyes using a special spray.

The great idea to mix fashion and contemporary technology to create history. At this year’s Paris Fashion Week 2022 came from the creators of the Coperni fashion business. This is the first time in fashion show history that such an idea has been used.

Manel Torres, PhD, the creator of the spray-on fabric, and the other experts surrounded Hadid as the fashion show was held in the Salle des Textiles at the Musée des Arts et Métiers in Paris. Bella was standing on the runway in nothing, but her lingerie and high heels when specialists started snow-spraying her.

Designer Arnaud Vaillant gave a statement to fashion magazine in which he said: “We wanted to dedicate this moment to Dr. Torres because we greatly admire what he does. We thought it was essential that he direct the performance since, in our opinion, it adds to the magic.”

BELLA HEADLINES IN 2022

When Bella Hadid walked out of the runway wearing a tight, asymmetrical white dress, the audience members’ mouths were undoubtedly open. It was difficult to see anyone’s face behind their phone in classic 2022 fashion. Moreover, the event was more of a spectacle than a statement on anything. Within seconds, the image had spread across Twitter, TikTok, and Instagram.

Bella Hadid is the chosen model at this time. And now, fashionistas have a brand new moment to iterate over.

HOW TO STYLE TRENDY IN YOUR ESSENTIALS HOODIE FALL 2022

Hoodies are a must-have for your fall 2022 look book. The ESSENTIALS hoodie and all of its many trendy styles will be the focus of this second article this week.

Your comfy clothing has endless styling possibilities. As we move away from the day-to-day pandemic outfits, it’s time to upgrade to more refined styling. The Fear of God Essentials by Jerry Lorenzo pieces are the perfect combination of elegance and style. The brand made its debut in 2018, and since then, it has continued to offer frequent drops at more reasonable prices to fashion enthusiasts. The ESSENTIALS hoodie is simple, with a relaxed fit that is focused on comfort. The ESSENTIALS branding enriches this hoodie, and the styling options are endless.

For fall 2022, fans of Fear of God are being drawn to ESSENTIALS by their largest collection since their debut. Streetwear lovers are still drawn to it because of its neutral color scheme, distinctive branding, and generous cuts. If you are seeking something more premium than fast fashion, the first ESSENTIALS collection for fall 2022 dropped on August 24, and the second drop was on September 28. You can dig into the seasonal fits for your fall 2022 look book with the ESSENTIALS hoodie.

Styling the ESSENTIALS hoodie

The ESSENTIALS hoodie is simple, and it comes in muted tones, making it incredibly versatile. To style the ESSENTIALS hoodie, you can easily play around with pieces that you already have in your wardrobe.

1. Layer your ESSENTIALS hoodie for fall

The ESSENTIALS hoodie is a great layering piece for a day out. It elevates the cozy look while keeping you warm at the same time. Wear the hoodie over a simple tank or t-shirt, and then add an overcoat or jacket over the hoodie. Pair it with slim-fit jeans and a pair of your favorite trainers to complete the look.

2. Athleisure

With athleisure, comfort and cool go hand in hand. With the right tips, you can wear your ESSENTIALS hoodie without running the risk of looking like you were too lazy to change out of your gym gear. The ESSENTIALS hoodie has a softer and heavier fabric, which makes the fit sharper and cleaner. For a full athleisure look, pair your ESSENTIALS hoodie with fitted joggers and complete the look with leather joggers.

3. Bring out your leather jacket

The leather jacket elevates your ESSENTIALS hoodie for a stylish off-duty look. A black leather jacket with well-fitted jeans combined with suede Chelsea boots will smarten this look. You can experiment with different colors depending on your aesthetic.

4. Tailored suit

Rip up traditional look books by wearing your ESSENTIALS hoodie under an unstructured suit. This sports-meets-suit look works if you opt for lace-up sneakers instead of formal footwear. For a slightly less committed way to style your ESSENTIALS hoodie with smart pieces, try pairing the hoodie with tailored trousers and luxe sports sneakers.

Generally, the Essentials hoodie has a versatile design, and it comes in neutral colors that will complement most pieces that you already own.

HOW DO MEN’S JEANS SIZES WORK?

Thank you for visiting talhasakrani.com, Talha Sakrani's Men's and Women's Fashion Blog.

In this blog, I will explain how men’s jeans sizes work!

Long gone are the days when people frequented the mall to get their fashion fix. The shoppers of today utilize the convenience and versatility of e-commerce to buy all their fashion essentials. In fact, the eCommerce industry for clothing and apparel is projected to reach a value of $1 trillion by 2025. Yup, that’s trillion, with a T.

A big reason for this popularity is because online fashion retailers offer lenient return and exchange policies. So, you can buy with the confidence that your product will be exchanged in case you’re not satisfied with its fit.

Exchange policies are a literal godsend when it comes to men’s fashion jeans. You see, it’s
easy to get shirts, outerwear, and footwear online- what with their simple small, medium, and large sizing protocols. But buying jeans from an eCommerce store is where things get a little tough.

We can all agree that men’s jeans sizes are more complicated than they need to be, right? In fact, I’ve rarely ever seen the men’s fashion jeans of two different brands being sized the same. And, what’s up with the two numbers on the size tag? Why can’t it be as simple as shirt sizing?

Well, today, I’ll take you through a comprehensive guide to how men’s jeans sizes work and
how you can save yourself from the hassle of sending your jeans for an exchange just because you didn’t like their fit.

So, without any further ado, let’s jump right in!

How Does Men’s Jeans Sizes Work?

The size tag on men’s jeans gives you two numbers that are separated by an x. The number
before the x signifies the waist for which the jeans are made. The number after the x tells you the inseam length of the jeans. So, for example, a pair of jeans with the size 32 x 30 means they are designed for 32-inch waists and are 30-inch long at the inseam.

Two important things are of note here. Firstly, notice how I said the first number determines the waist for which the pants are made. You see, this is not the actual measurement of the jean’s waistband.

In fact, the difference between the first number and the actual length of the jean’s waistband can be up to 3 inches, depending on the fit and brand. Jeans are worn below the person’s natural waistline. Here, the body normally gets wider. So, jeans manufacturers design a longer waistband for that specific waist size.

If you’re unsure what your natural waist length is, here is a detailed guide on how you can
measure it.

The second thing of note here is the second number is a measurement of the pant’s inseam. This is the technical term for the distance between the jean’s crotch area and its bottom opening. In contemporary fashion, men wear jeans that reach just above their ankles. So, you can determine your ideal inseam length by measuring the distance between your upper thigh and your ankles. If you’re planning to do a cuff fold on your jeans, make sure you add 2 inches to the inseam. You see, cuffed jeans should never go above the ankle and a 2-inch cuff looks super.

If you’re planning to buy jeans from Europe, simply add 16 to your waist size to convert your US men’s jeans size to European men’s jeans size.

What are the Different Types of Jeans Fits for Men?

While the size tag of your jeans will tell you about its waist and length, you’ll need to check its fit guide to get a better idea of how well it’ll hug your hips and thighs. Men’s jeans sizes usually boast six types of fits:

Talha Shakir Sakrani

Skinny Fit

Unless a brand has a super-skinny fit, these will be the narrowest fitted jeans. Skinny jeans
will be like a second skin and hug both your thighs and legs.

Talha Sakrani

Tapered Fit

A tapered fit is also known as a carrot fit. This is because just like a carrot, the jeans are
wide at the top and narrow at the bottom. You can expect about 1-2 inches of breathing
space towards the hips, while the jeans will tightly hug your calves and ankles.

Slim Fit

Slim-fit jeans offer the best of both worlds. They’re neither too tight nor too baggy. Offering a super smart fit, slim-fit jeans offer 1-2 inches of extra space throughout.

Regular Fit

Also known as a straight or classic fit, regular fit jeans are a little towards the baggy side of
things. They’ll normally offer 3-4 inches of room throughout the pant’s length.

Bootcut Fit

Bootcut fit jeans boast a smart fit towards the seat and they start to widen as you go down
the jean’s length. Their ankle is usually flared up to give that cowboy-like look.

Relaxed Fit

Finally, come relaxed-fit jeans. These are the baggiest jeans of any brand. Loose throughout, they almost look oversized. Make sure you wear an oversized tee or shirt over such pants to complement the look.

Final Thoughts

Getting jeans online can be tough. Their sizing is a lot more complicated than other types of
apparel and almost all brands make different types of jeans. Brands try to alleviate this
situation by offering generous return and exchange policies, but it still can be a hassle to get your jeans shipped out and wait for the return parcel. So, I hope my guide to men’s jeans sizes helps in this regard.

Thank you for reading this brief till the end. I would love to hear any misadventures you may have had regarding jeans sizes and getting the wrong size. See you in the comments

BOOTS FOR MEN ESSENTIAL IN 2022!

Hi! Thanks for visiting my site; Talha Sakrani essential boots for men.

 I am Talha Sakrani and on this occasion, we will start to say hello to the autumn-winter season and begin to say goodbye to the spring-summer season. Don’t worry, we still have sunny days to enjoy, but as the cold months approach (at least on the north side of the earth) it’s time to think about our wardrobe, and of course, I think it’s never too early to be in trend. So this time we will talk about men’s trends footwear for this new season, and of course, which boots formen are essential for this year 2022.

In this article, I will talk about the boots that cannot be missing this season in your wardrobe. I will give you some outfit tips so you can combine your boots according to the occasion and I will tell you which are my top 5 favorite boot for men brands.

Keep reading and discover the latest trend in men’s boots 2022!

Styles and types of boots

Mountain boots

Mountain boots have managed to overcome their main market (campers and climbers) and immerse themselves in the world of fashion.

Undoubtedly, these types of boots are very comfortable and protective, which is why they began to be used outside of mountain activities.

Although his strong point is undoubtedly the casual outfit. The best thing about this type of boots is that they are very flexible to combine. They go perfect with shorts, Bermudas or denim pants, and they are practical for almost any occasion since they keep you comfortable and warm. Let’s say the hiking boots are winter tennis.

Tips for choosing the best hiking boots:
  • There is nothing better than investing in quality shoes.
  • Look for thick soles.
  • Heavy-duty ankle straps.
  • Padded linings and soles.

If you decide to add these boots to your wardrobe, I assure you that they will be great allies, so don’t skimp on buying ones that will have a long life.

Brogue boots

Surely you know this type of boots, but perhaps what you do not know is its origin. Brogue boots, characterized by holes in the front, were invented by farmers looking for a practical way to drain marshy water from their shoes while out in the fields.

Today, neither the materials with which they are made nor the holes in their appearance fulfil this function, on the contrary, they are totally decorative. This style of boot is excellent for a smart casual style, such as going to the office, or to dinner with friends.

Tips for wearing Brogue Boots:
  • Use them with the same clothes with which you use your brogue shoes.
  • To go to work, you can combine them with a suit or a shirt and give it a more formal look.
  • These types of boots look great with rocker chinos and a cable knit sweater.
  • If you are looking for a more casual and trendy style, rolled-up jeans, a white t-shirt and a leather jacket is the option.

As an extra fact, in this type of boots it is considered that the more holes it has, the more informal it is, and on the contrary, the few holes are the most elegant Brogue style.

You can find this type of boot in different shades, with dark brown and black being the most elegant, while light ones go better with casual styles.

Work boots

Hiking boots are not the only ones of this style that have passed from the world of sports and hard work to the world of fashion.

The practical and durable style of work boots has earned them a place in the wardrobe of many.

Today we can find work style boots with more aesthetic than work characteristics. For example, boots of this style but without the steel cap that is essential in a work setting.

However, some of its features are preserved, such as padded ankles, abundant padding, grippy soles and waterproof finishes.

It is precisely these characteristics that make them a great option for our winter outfits.

Undoubtedly the brand that has managed to revolutionize the use of these boots is Timberland. Their Yellow Boots have been making their way into the market for years and have already conquered several catwalks.

Tips to use:
  • Consider that you have to maintain a balance in your outfit when you use these boots, a style with joggers and a hoodie works well, but do not make it look too sporty.

Chelsea Boots

If I had to choose some essential boots for this year, without a doubt I would choose Chelsea boots. These types of boots have the advantage of looking spectacular in different styles.

They look smart in a suit and casual in skinny jeans and a leather jacket. The most difficult thing when choosing your Chelsea boots will be choosing the color.

If you are a lover of the classic, the black ones are the perfect option. But if you want to prioritize matching more of your outfits, browns and tans are great.

Tips:
  • Suede Chelsea boots are beautiful, but you can only wear them in the fall, or if you live somewhere where it doesn’t rain or snow.
  • If you plan to make these types of shoes the stars of your wardrobe, rubber soles and elastic sides are the most comfortable.
  • You can find Chelsea boots with a pointed or round toe. The round one is of a much more casual style.

Top 5 best brands of Boots for men

What are the best boot brands? I get asked this question quite often. So after thinking about it, this is my TOP 5.

As I told you above, buying poor-quality shoes is the worst thing you can do. In the end, you will end up spending more money buying boots that will last you only a few months, than paying for quality boots for men that can last you years.

For the same reason, I always recommend choosing the footwear carefully. A good purchase is one that will last you and will not quickly go out of style.

So that you have a reference, these are some of my favorite brands, although, of course, they are not the only ones that have good quality and aesthetics.

  • Grenson
  • Timberland
  • of the church
  • UGG
  • Glutton

Which boots for men are you going to choose for this season?

Boots Smelling Fresh - Talha Sakrani Fashion Blog for Men's Fashion and Women's Fashion

HOW TO KEEP BOOTS SMELLING FRESH?

Hey there, I would like to thank all my visitors for supporting talhasakrani.com, Talha Sakrani Men’s and Women’s Fashion Blog. Today, I’ll be giving you some tips on how to keep the boots smelling fresh. I thought that this topic is very essential for each one of us since our feet are always in our shoes most of the day.

Let me just tell you that equal parts Practical and fashionable, boots have taken over the global footwear industry like a storm. Although elevating your style with the help of this footwear is the easy part, taking proper care of your boots isn’t exactly so simple. So, unless you want a stinky situation on your hands each time you take out your favorite boots, make sure you give this guide a read. In it, I’ll be taking you through everything you’ll need to know to take care of your boots and keep them smelling fresh.

So, without any further ado, let’s dive right in!

How to Get Rid of Boot Smell?

In case you’ve already got a pair of boots that reek, here are two ways you can get rid of the
bad odor in them:

The DIY Method

In the mood for some stink-smashing DIY?

Well, here are some at-home remedies to keep the boots smelling fresh:

Leave it to the UV Rays

Do you know UV rays are great at killing any fungi, bacteria, and odors? Now, before you go
about popping your boots in the sun, make sure you apply some UV protection to them. You
see, UV rays from the sun can actually damage leather and fade it. On the other hand, the
rays from a UVC lamp don’t cause any such damage. So, you can also use this device if
you’ve got one lying around the house.

Make Your Spray Bottle Your Best Friend

A single spray bottle should be filled with 40% water and 50% alcohol. Add a few drops of authentic essential oil, such lavender or lime, and thoroughly combine. Spray the mixture in both the shoe and the spot where you keep your footwear whenever you take them off.

The Wonder of Baking Soda

Baking soda is yet another household product that is great at thoroughly eliminating foul
odors. The way to go here is to fill up a sock with baking soda and leave it inside your stinky
boots overnight. Adding the sock into the mix here isn’t necessary. However, it’ll help slash
your clean-up time since getting rid of powder from your shoe’s insoles isn’t exactly a child’s
play.

Go Commercial

If you’d rather just stick to commercial solutions to removing the bad odor from your boots, here are two things you can do:

Boot Cleaning Products

Although pricey, boot deodorizers are a sure-fire way of eliminating any sort of foul odor from your boots. They suck out any moisture buildup from the shoe and kill all those stinky bacteria. Most of them boast signature fragrances that leave your shoes smelling all fruity once you’re done spraying them. Just make sure you follow the instructional manual to the letter when using them. This will ensure you don’t end up ruining your expensive fashion boots.

New Insoles

If nothing’s really working in your quest of freshening up your old boots, consider getting new insoles. My advice here is to buy one from the manufacturer of your boots. But you can also opt for a third-party store if the original insoles cost quite a bit. In such a case, make sure you properly measure the insole to ensure the correct fit.

Tips to Keep Your Boots Smelling Fresh

Now that you know all about eliminating bad odors from your boots, here are five tips to
prevent your boots from stinking up in the first place:

Clean Feet are a Must

There’s a very high chance your dirty feet might end up stinking up your boots. So, make sure you properly wash them every day with soap. This will ensure any dead skin cells and odor-causing bacteria are killed.

Wear the Right Kind of Socks

While everyone knows that socks are essential when wearing any sort of footwear, you
should also think about the type of socks you wear. Anything made from cotton or synthetic
materials will probably absorb sweat instead of letting it evaporate. On the other hand, wool
and bamboo are great at wicking away moisture. So, consider socks made from these
materials when adorning a pair of boots.
Ditch the waterproof boots.

Unless you’re getting a pair of hiking boots, you’ll probably be better off getting non-waterproof boots. You see, waterproof shoes are all about preventing the transfer of moisture. This becomes a problem when you’re wearing everyday boots since your sweat will have no place to escape. As a result, odor-causing bacteria will start to grow inside your shoe and from there on out, it’s just stomach-churning stench.

Consider a Boot Dryer

An electronic gadget that dissipates heat to dry out boots does sound pretty amazing, no?

Well, that’s just what a boot dryer is. They come in pretty handy when you’d like your boots to be all dry for the next day. Also, did I mention how these dryers can be used to dry off your gloves, socks, and even hats? Yeah, pretty versatile, I know. So, it goes without saying that a boot dryer is a must have for any fashion boot enthusiast.

Say Yes to Non-Metallic Toe Caps

Boots with metallic toe caps tend to overheat. This extra heat will cause your feet to sweat
up. Simple physics really. Well, you can stave off such a dilemma by only getting boots with
non-metallic toe caps.

Final Thoughts

From helping you dress better to assisting you in taking care of your apparel and footwear, my goal is to provide a one-stop destination for fashion enthusiasts. This guide took you through a complete 101 of keeping your boots smelling fresh. I hope it proved to be an insightful read. Thank you for sticking till the end. Can’t wait to hear your thoughts in the comments section. Cheers!

WOMEN TOP 8 TRENDING COLORS OF 2022

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.

Fuchsia

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.

Periwinkle

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.

Kelly Green

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.

Bright Orange

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.

Lilac

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.

Crisp White

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.

Soft Yellow

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.

Chocolate Brown

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.

Jackets

In this blog we love jackets, so we start here. The spring/summer catwalks of the top designers such as Rhude Hermès, Louis Vuitton, Dior among others, once again rectify the street style this season. This time the Varsity Jacket is the coat that cannot be missing in your closet.

As for something lighter, cardigans or knitted sweaters are today’s trend. Yes, I know, it seems that more than today`s trend, it seems to be the trend for the time of our parents and grandparents. But you already know that fashion is a wheel of fortune that turns and turns. So don’t be shy and dust off that drawer of clothes from your grandparents, you will surely find something to wear before the end of the summer.

Top Parts

It seems like every summer is hotter than the last, and designers know it. For this spring summer season, the fashion trend for men in terms of shirts can be defined with two words, freshness and spaciousness. The oversize cut is on all the catwalks with classic cuts and mostly striped prints. Of course, the most important thing is that it is somewhat loose. How many? As much as possible!

To complement the perfect outfit, knitted vests are still in trend. We have seen them since last summer and it seems that they will not go away so easily. If last summer they had their debut on the catwalks, this summer they have been the favorite accessory of brands like Courreges and Giorgio Armani. The difference? This year has been characterized by showing off skin, so the sleeveless shirts + knitted vest is a great combination.

Pants

We come to the daring part of this season, the lower part. Let’s start with the pants. The seventies flared pants continued to gain ground, and this time they flooded the men’s catwalks.

On the other hand, in the spring-summer seasons, Bermudas are never lacking, and this occasion is no exception. Like pants and shirts, the wider the better. The length on this occasion was kept within the classic parameters reaching from the knee to below it.

For the most daring and those who like to break with schemes and parameters, short skirts have arrived on the men’s catwalks. Fashion is betting more and more on queer or genderless designs that break with the male-female dichotomy.

And on this occasion, the flag of this fashion is carried by men. Again, the amplitude is the characteristic feature; the more the better. Would you dare wear this outfit?

For Important Occasions

If something has changed very quickly in recent years in terms of men’s fashion, it is the concept of elegant and formal. Each season the narrowness and rigidity of the suits and outfits for work are more relaxed. So go saying goodbye to your old suits and ties because it seems that they are gone never to return (In good time!).

This of course does not mean that elegance is dead, on the contrary, it is becoming easier to look elegant on any occasion.

As you may be guessing, this spring-summer 2022 season, baggy suits were a hit on all the catwalks. Probably the increase in the home office since the pandemic made visible how important it is to be comfortable to work. So for our good luck now we can wear formal and elegant suits that are comfortable at the same time. At least that will make the return to the office a little better.

The suit jacket, although not in their entirety, are almost being left off the catwalks to be replaced by matching sets of shirts and pants. Take a look at the new collections from Louis Vuitton, Lanvin, Wales Bonner, Giorgio Armani or Dries, Paul Smith or Wooyoungmi to understand the new concept of formal.

Colors: from the sublime to the eccentric

Well now you know what cuts and styles to use before this spring-summer season ends. Now let’s move on to something no less important, what colors are the protagonists of the fashion trend 2022?

This season the trend is marked by a very interesting combination of colors. Opposites have come together and the catwalks have combined the sobriety of black with the eccentricity of bright and varied colors.

The total black look has triumphed since the spring-summer season of 2021, and this time it returned with more force. Leather is the new element in total black, and it seems that this trend will continue, so it is not a bad idea to invest in a black leather jacket.

On the other hand and on the total extreme, bright tousled colors have lit up the catwalks this season. Pinks, greens, and yellows dominate the scene, whether combined in total looks. The total pink look has gained more strength than the others, especially in social networks and aesthetic trends.

POP MUSIC AND ITS INFLUENCE ON FASHION

Talha Shakir Sakrani
Futuristic Fashion – Listing to Music

In this blog I will explain about Pop Music and Its Influence on Fashion. Fashion and music are ever-changing industries with much more in common than some may think. Both considered forms of self-expression, these art forms commingle in many ways. Pop Music and Its Influence on cultural trends, including fashion, can be witnessed consistently throughout history. As styles of music have shifted through the years, fashion trends have acted as a mirror reflecting these changes. Current trends are a reflection of the most famous artists and their unique styles. Pop music, specifically, has had a massive impact on how fashion has evolved and continues to evolve today.

Think of your favorite pop artist and you’re likely to be able to envision them easily. You can see their face, hair, and style, all of which make them uniquely recognizable. This is no coincidence. Music artists work hard to portray a specific representation that ties directly to their music. Because of this, fans of their music are likely to emulate the parts
of their style that they enjoy most.

A great example of this is Lady Gaga and her eclectic yet relatable style. Her wardrobe consists of loud and vibrant pieces that leave the media talking about her more often than not. Her incorporation of accessories that accentuate her outfits has brought back trends like oversized sunglasses, brightly colored purses, and even gloves. The ability to have widespread influence on fashion trends is just one way in which pop music artists contribute to today’s culture.

Lady Gaga is just one example of a pop artist that has altered fashion trends in the current decade. Here are some more vivid examples of pop music’s influence on the industry today:

Hats

Headwear trends are one of the most frequently changing areas of fashion and are heavily influenced by music videos, paparazzi photos, and interviews. Trends have even shifted towards a seemingly anti-hat movement, in which we have gone months at a time without seeing any artists rocking hats of any style. Currently, artists like Dua Lipa and Justin Bieber have not only brought back hats but have been spotted wearing them on red carpets as well. One example of this is Justin Bieber and his neon pink beanie at the 2022 Grammys. Dua Lipa, on the other hand, has been spotted wearing a bucket hat on many occasions, which originated in the 90s era. These bold choices did not go unnoticed and further fueled the retro-inspired trends that have been making their way back onto the scene.

Purses

Designer brand purses have always been a go-to for successful music artists because
of their ability to influence. Brands like Louis Vuitton, Prada, Dior, and others offer their
bags to celebs due to their ability to be photographed with them. Because of this, designer purses are almost always on-trend. Right now, trends are shifting toward vintage designer bags thanks to the influence of artists like Beyonce and Taylor Swift. A heavy focus on sustainability (thanks in part to climate change) has prompted music artists to reduce, reuse, and recycle. This means seeking out vintage purses that are no longer made. In addition to the sustainability aspect, these purses are also highly desirable due to their exclusivity. Bags that are no longer made are valued much higher than ones being mass-produced right now. This trend is especially beneficial for the planet, which makes it likely to last for quite a while. Technology is one of the few areas likely to suffer from trends such as this. The invention of devices that can rapidly produce mass amounts of products is in increasingly lower demand as A-list music artists preach the importance of sustainability. Even so, it’s likely technology will pivot and find a way to join in on this planet-conscious movement.

Sunglasses

Artists like J-Lo have a knack for bringing back trends that were once big during their prime in the 90s and 2000s. Current trends are geared toward a modern-influenced yet retro vibe, which means oval-shaped, boldly colored, and futuristic styles are what we’re seeing. Styles like aviators and wayfarers are back and better than ever with jazzed-up elements that make them nostalgic yet unique. One of J-Lo’s most popular music videos, Jenny From The Block, shows her in oversized glasses with a thick frame. She was spotted out recently wearing similar glasses, even though this music video was released in 2002. This “style recycle” influences fans of hers from this earlier time period, as well as now, to bring out their older sunglasses which catapults into a full-blown trend.

Dresses

In contrast to recent years, when simplicity and minimalism were the goals for red carpet dresses, bold and daring statement pieces have become the new trend. Artists like Billie Eilish and Lizzo have wowed onlookers at recent events with their unique and frankly eccentric dress choices. Billie showcased a vintage 1920s-inspired look featuring a corset-style bodice at the Met Gala this year, while Lizzo sported a purple see-through mesh dress that wowed. As a result, fashion trends have shifted in this direction as well. You will see far more daring choices being marketed on fashion websites like Revolve, FRWD, and even Nordstrom. This fearless expression of personality from artists has paved the way for the rest of the population to take some bolder fashion risks as well.

As pop music continues to evolve, the fashion industry is sure to follow closely behind. Although this genre consistently offers upbeat, relatable, and energetic tunes, it continues to shift in ways that introduce us to new ideas and imagery. As a result, these two entities work hand-in-hand in shaping the cultural trends we know and love.

THE FUTURE OF FASHION: ROOTED IN THE PAST?

Fashion is easily one of the most fast paced and difficult to anticipate industries, with its trends constantly evolving on us. Gurus all over the world work tirelessly to project what will soon be trendy, what is going out of style, and how to be on top of these ever-evolving changes. What’s “in” is purely a reflection of current times. Whether that be politics, social media influences, worldwide and cultural changes, and of course technology. Ironically enough, the future of fashion trends emerging as of late have not only been seen before but were popular not long ago. The 1990s and Y2K styles that so many of us grew up with have made a reappearance, and much sooner than expected.

Icons like Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Paris Hilton, and Christina Aguilera all offered some unique and at times cringe-inducing looks. Fortunately, the trends that are resurfacing lately take the best of this era and add a bit of modern flair. The influence of technology has allowed the future of fashion industry to level up even the most simple accessories to incorporate ultimate functionality. A few examples of these spruced-up trends are fanny packs, sneakers, denim jackets, plaid flannel shirts, scrunchies, and so much more. Below, we will dive into some of these top 90s and Y2K trends that are back and bigger than ever.

Fanny Packs

While they first emerged in the 1980s, fanny packs kept up their domination in the industry well into the 90s. Neon color combinations made these ‘waist purses’ stand out in the crowd. Now, we are seeing far fewer eye-catching colors and much more neutral tones. Lululemon has created a fashion trend of their own with the emergence of their ‘belt bags’. In essence, these are just fanny packs remarketed and shown with multiple different ways of wearing them. They’ve even gone viral on the app TikTok because of their incredible popularity. Fanny packs, in general, provide both fashion and functionality all in one, making them a great accessory option for people on the go. Back in the 90s, cell phones were not widely used, and even if they were, they were far too large to squeeze into a fanny pack. Now, these packs are perfect to throw your iPhone or Android into while you move around. Multiple pockets allow you to also throw in your AirPods, keys, chapstick, and whatever else you may need when you are on the go.

Denim Jackets

A staple in the 90s and now, denim jackets haven’t changed as drastically as other trends over the years. Although Canadian tuxedos are yet to become socially acceptable again (and thank goodness for that), denim in the form of pants and jackets can be considered timeless for many. The cuts of these jackets are the element that has in fact shifted, and we are now seeing far more cropped and fitted styles as opposed to the more boxy cuts in the 90s. Customizing these fall and winter staples is easy, with a huge variety of washes and styles. A white denim jacket is perfect for a summer evening whereas a dark blue denim jacket can be popped on for a fall stroll. Ultimately, it is a pretty safe bet that denim jackets will be sticking around for the long haul.

Plaid Flannel Shirts

Revisit any iconic movie for the 90s and you can be guaranteed to spot a plaid flannel shirt at some point. These shirts were absolutely everywhere during this era and have made their way back to the top of the fashion trend list for 2022. Muted neutral tones with minimal pops of reds, greens, and blues are the most often seen color schemes for classic flannels. Even the aspect of tying them around your waist has been brought back, which feels like a true ode to the 90s era. This contributes to one of the perks of plaid flannels, which is the ability to throw them on during chillier weather and then tie it around the waist when it heats up.

Bright Watches

Chunky, brightly colored, and minimalistic were the most commonly seen attributes when it came to watches in past decades. Especially in the year 2000, a general rule of thumb was “the brighter the better”. As a result, we saw some gaudy and large wrist accessories. Now, due to the increase in available technology, we can see smartwatches taking the industry by storm. The Apple watch maintains its place as the number one selling smartwatch, and for good reason. Apple has allowed for what seems like infinite possibilities when it comes to watch bands. As a result, there is an option for quite literally every style out there. The ability to match your watch to your outfit each day is a unique ability that previously only existed for those wealthy enough to own hundreds of watches.

One thing is for certain, fashion trends are sure to be recycled at some point in some capacity. If one of your favorite styles is currently on the outs, you may just be in luck in the next few years. As technology, politics, and cultural changes continue to evolve, we will continue to see future of fashion trends fluctuate and shift in order to reflect current times. As they say, the future of fashion industry is like a mirror that reflects the current state of the world. It is truly anybody’s guess as to what will be the next popular trend of 2022.
