2022 Dress Trends
Do you follow fashion trends? I am always looking ahead to see what will be fashionable in the upcoming season; part of it is my job leading Once ‘n Again but mostly I have always been interested in fashion. Some of the forecasts are reasonable and believable then there are some that we think will never “catch on”. Sometimes we are right about it but occasionally, in the not so distant future, we are wearing a version of the trend we were questioning. We live in the Midwest so we know some of the trends will never make it far enough from the coasts to reach us in their wildest forms. We have more than 1000 dresses in each location so I am going to focus on dresses for now! Here are some of the trends for 2022:
- Saturated Solids, Power Bohemian Florals, Gingham, Chambray, Beachy Stripes, & Denim (yes denim dresses are back).
- Popular Colors: Tangerine, Cerulean, Kelly Green, Hot Pink, Blue, Red, & White
- Very Peri is the Pantone Color of the Year for 2022. Complimentary colors are Paradise Pink and Eggshell Blue.
- Popular styles: maxi dresses, cut out dresses, romantic flowy looks, & mini dresses.
- Popular details: Shirred, Ruched, Smocked, & Pleats
- Shirred—horizontal lines of elastic thread that draws fabric together.
- Ruched—overlay of fabric strips pleated, fluted, or gathered for a ripple like effect.
- Smocked—embroidery technique to gather fabric to add stretch.
- Pleats–fold or doubling of fabric that is pressed, ironed, or creased into place.
Some of you are of an age that you have A LOT of weddings to attend—my daughter was invited to 6 this summer—that’s a lot of dresses. We also have professional dresses, casual dresses, little black dresses, and more. We have the dress for you at a variety of price points to fit anyone’s budget. Please note that we do not sell wedding dresses for the Bride, Mother of the Bride, or Prom Dresses.
Whether laughing or crying about the upcoming trends we have many of the looks you are searching for right now. Stop in and see what is “new” at Once ‘n Again in Fairbury or Pontiac, IL.
