2022 Spring Trends

Updated: Mar 22

I'm not sure that I've ever considered myself as "trendy". In fact, for years I have chosen timeless and classic pieces - whether for my home or with my clothing. I've favored items that are always in style from season to season and year to year. When I have selected more trendy or bolder pieces, they usually are in the form of accessories. My outfit formula was always to keep it pretty simple with a classic top & bottom and then accentuate the outfit with something fun such as a colorful handbag or animal print shoes. What about you? Do you consider yourself trendy or fashion-forward?


Don't get me wrong, I've always been super interested in fashion and knowing what was trending. I loved pouring over fashion magazines in my teens and 20's. But for some reason, I was always too nervous to try and wear super trendy items for fear that I couldn't pull them off. After a while, I stopped paying close attention to what was trending and just stuck to what I knew. But, ever since meeting Shari Braendel of Fashion Meets Faith/Style by Color in the fall of 2020 and training under her, I find myself once again looking forward to discovering the season's trends - whether with colors, clothing styles, or accessories.


This past fall & winter season I decided I was ready to step out and try sporting some of the trends. My seasonal color palette of black, red, and soft white was something I was totally comfortable building my capsule wardrobe with. And I was excited to add one of the pattern trends, houndstooth, to my wardrobe. A classic pattern that one was not out of my comfort zone. One of the things that was out of my comfort zone though is chunky soled shoes & boots. Something I swore I would never wear. I have always like sleek, sophisticated pumps and classic flats. Chunky, lug-soled boots - no way! In fact, they had been trending for a while but I thought to myself that was one trend I was not interested in. However, as the fall turned colder, I started thinking maybe some lug-soled boots could be a warmer option and maybe, just maybe I could give them a shot. I started off by buying a pair of combat boots. Perfect to pull on with some leggings, a flannel, and my leather jacket. I wore this outfit to the movies one rainy Sunday. After wearing the boots for about a month or so, I was shopping one day and saw some lug-soled chelsea boots which I decided to pick up on a whim. They are now my favorite and most worn shoe of the entire winter. And as winter draws to a close and spring is upon us, I cannot wait to try some of 2022's trends.
