MEN’S FASHION ACCESSORIES

MAKE ACCESSORIES A TREND IN 2023

The magical ability of men’s fashion accessories to enhance class and glamor can never be overemphasized. It is rather distasteful when people ignore these dress accessories, considered to be the essential tools for taking your style from the subpar to the apex of elegance.

Speaking of men’s fashion accessories, there are things you must always consider when making a choice. Some of them include; choosing a perfect color to blend with the cloth in question, opting for the right brand for better satisfaction, getting a good product design that fits well; and above all, you need to know how best to combine everything!

With the right information, you will have better luck elevating your style, which is why we have chosen to offer some insights on making better fashion statements with your fashion accessories. Below, you will find some ideas to help improve your game.

UNDERSTAND THE OCCASION

The first step is your understanding of the atmosphere surrounding the event in play. With so many outfits available, one might think that they could dress in any way they liked for all the events. For example, it’s inappropriate to dress in jeans and a t-shirt to an interview knowing that it’s an office environment and demands formal attire. Every occasion has it’s own peculiar demands, and you have to dress correctly to fit.

EVERY PIECE HAS ITS OWN DEMANDS

One way to create magic is by knowing the type of clothing you have set aside and pairing it with the perfect accessory. A semi-casual dress requires the combination of a pair of sneakers, a jacket, application of body scents, a wristwatch, a neck piece, any haircut of your choice, and, if it works for you, a baseball hat. On the other hand, if it is not casual, you have to pair it with less casual accessories.

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT ACCESSORIES

Often times, you might be faced with an avalanche of options but lack an understanding of how to pick the right piece for your ensemble. You’re expected to make a perfect choice for every piece you choose, and it can be a puzzling thing to do. For events like party hangouts, family gatherings, etc., the style should be casual dressing. And in the light of men’s fashion accessories, the nature and pattern of your clothing will determine the specific variant of your shoes, wristwatch, neck piece, body fragrance, waist belt, fashion glasses, and the colors involved.

An outfit like a blue denim, white T-shirt, and a black or blue denim jacket is perceived to be simple and can be specifically matched with either a pair of brown Danner Bull Run Moc Toe shoes, black Bitflex boots, or any other similar alternative. The aim is to achieve a rugged and refined look while you maintain class and elegance.

While on that, you should also note that picking a random necklace might cause you to deviate from the intended effect. So, it is necessary to look out for beaded necklaces in particular, as they offer a more casual look than what you would get from a silver or gold chain. This necklace could either be in mixed colors or just a plain color, but since the choice of cloth is plain, pairing with a colorful necklace would be a great idea.

Another important item in a man’s fashion accessories is a wrist watch. Wristwatches have a way of making a good impact on your overall appearance. And with so many types and designs of wristwatches in the market space, it can be confusing to categorically try to decipher which one is for the event. Watches come in either analog or digital form. A digital-faced wristwatch uses a screen to display time in numbers, while an analog-faced one appears in the minute hand, hourly hand, and often the seconds hand. We may find them in different designs like leather, rubber, chains, etc. More likely, digital watches come in rubber designs, which are suitable for casual or sports events, while the analog face types mostly appear in chains or leather, which are suitable for business and formal wear.

Fashion glasses offer a great way to improve your appearance. It may not be their loss; slipping on a nice pair of glasses can boost your appearance. It may not be their loss; slipping on a nice pair of glasses can boost your appearance immensely. There are various fashion glasses out there that provide a unique appearance for different occasions. We have sunglasses for people who do not like communicating with their eyes, wish to keep the sun away from their eyes, and for those who enjoy looking stylish. It is best for the summer and is a perfect choice for semi-formal and casual dressing. For a formal occasion, you should consider transparent designer glasses, particularly the rimless pattern. It’ll blend with any corporate outfit of your choice.

You must remember that your dressing is never complete without a body scent. This is where your identity as a fashion enthusiast stands out. Ideally, there are different fragrances for different events. For instance, at a romantic event, the right fragrance to wear as a man is a body cologne. This is because it is on the skin for maximum impact. Perfumes are rather harsh and can be harmful to the skin. If you’re headed to a wedding ceremony, a perfume is the perfect accessory.

Choosing the right men’s fashion accessories can be tricky and confusing, and you’ll  need to draw on your imagination and creative nous. This article is the perfect guide to push you a notch higher in your fashion journey.

FINAL WORDS

The beauty of any outfit lies not only in the fabric or fit involved, but in the entire ensemble. To achieve elegance in a unique style, a dress is considered incomplete without an added fashion accessory. When you dress up and leave your accessories behind, it means you just made a meal without any spice.

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.

Talha Sakrani

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.

Talha Shakir

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

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.

LATEST MEN’S FASHION TRENDS 2022

If you are looking for fashion tips and the latest trends for men, you are on the right blog. I am Talha Sakrani, and I am happy to share the latest fashion trends for 2022 with you. We are right in the middle of the year. The spring/summer 2022 season is almost over. Soon we’ll be seeing the new trends of the fall/winter season on the catwalks.

So far, this year’s men’s fashion trend has been revolutionary, histrionic, and daring. What will the fall and winter season be like? We will find out soon, but first in this ‘Blog’ right here at talhasakrani.com we will review the late fashion men’s 2022. Do not miss this article because I will tell you everything important about how the trends for men are going this year, from jackets, pants, colors, and more. You will find out everything!

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.

Blues About Entertainment Biz

BY TALHA SAKRANI

I thought of TV, movies, music, modeling, or even owning a production house. I started composing music, modeling, and creating my own unique style of editing. I wanted to be there, but I wondered and daydreamed about it. I got even more tempted when my friends and parents said I should do it. It was the genesis of my life, but I was so caught up in multiple things that I could not start my journey. Suddenly, I realized that I should keep my social media accounts public and start tagging when I post. My social platforms became flush with my content, and I started to have followers in less than a month. I received my first offer from a modeling agency in 2022 for an audition in less than a year, but I couldn’t participate due to my work and other responsibilities. I thought to myself, “I wanted to break into the entertainment industry all my life, and when I got an offer, I was not able to.” Otherwise, if I were selected, I would be modeling in TV commercials, magazines, Netflix, and HULU, and most importantly, I would have achieved my dream. I will still achieve my dream, and I do recommend it to everyone. I believe in living freely and in equality, and that’s why we should have the right to know our rights and the freedom to live by them. We should live on our own terms and listen to what we would like to achieve.
