As you go about your day you will notice, most people no longer want to kill themselves in tight clothing or high fashion outfits, right now it’s all about comfort and we are absolutely loving it.

The pandemic had people lounging in pajamas, staying indoors with little to no runway shows and with the high of fashion declining came the grand entrance of loungewear fashion.

With the mantra comfort first, the fashion scene has since evolved making way for trends that can resonate with most people.

And with that, here are some fashion trends you are going to see this year:

Puffer jackets

They may seem huge but trust me all worth the buzz in town. As you see people walk around in their laid back outfits, puffer jackets are to blame or thank?

They are warm and cosy and the best part is they come in a variety of colours making it easy to blend your outfits. Also an added advantage is that they are unisex, meaning you can always steal you’re your boyfriends jacket and get away with it.

Tractor trek-sole boots

These shoes are as heavy as they sound but all worth it. One, you can pair them with almost anything in your closet from sweatpants, jeans to skirts and they will automatically give your outfit the high fashion vibe.

Another plus to this trend is that they are unisex as well no heel to the boot, meaning you can simply buy a pair and share.

Sweater vests

Call our generation old-fashioned but our dads couldn’t be more proud of us right now. Vests or chests if you like are currently painting the town red and we are loving it.

These sweaters are easy, colourful and truly an all-weather wardrobe piece. As you expected, these sweaters are unisex, so steal that shirt and rock this look.

Voluminous shoulder sleeves

I don’t know anything else that speaks high fashion than these extra unmissable puffed sleeves blouses and dresses.

They are not only gorgeous but equally feminine and the best part is you can rock this look to any event. And even though the buzz may have gained momentum towards the end of the year, these sleeves are definitely making their way into 2022 runways.

This might just be my favourite trend this year and ladies are killing it on the streets. From reputable fashion brands, custom made ones to knitted bralettes we can’t get enough of this trend.

It pairs well with sweats, jeans and palazzo pants, let’s hope bralettes endure the test of fashion time.

Oversized blazers

Oversized blazers were hot in 2019 before the pandemic hit, still growing strong and is likely to spill over into 2022.

The best part about this blazer style is you can literally pair it with anything you want from your closet and also a bonus tip is they are unisex!

Wide leg pants

This vintage trend is back with rage and is unlikely to go away any time soon but who’s complaining?

Have you noticed how they come in a variety of colours and ladies are just soaking it in. Paired with some voluminous puffed sleeves, high fashion will have nothing on you.

Amina Muaddi heels

If there is a pair of heels ladies are currently obsessed with then the Amina Muaddi heels have it! They come in all forms and colours from clear, strappy, bold to shiny.

For obvious reasons they are comfortable, feminine and you won’t end up walking like a calf all day. However, considering how much they have populated the market, this trend may die down soon.
