If you a lover of style and fashion, then you want to know what is in style every season. We have already covered the first month of January and the fashion gurus can already tell what fashion trends will define 2022.

If you want to be stylish in 2022, here is a list of wardrobe must-haves.

Wide Leg pants

Wide-legged pants were a major hit in the 90s and they have slowly been making a comeback in recent years. This year, wide-legged pants are expected to continue reigning as the choice pants for ladies. Therefore, if you are thinking of getting some skinny jeans, maybe hold off, at least until 2022 is over.

Cardigans

Cardigans are another 90s fashion staple that has been stealthily making their way back into the fashion scene. The versatility of cardigans makes them a wardrobe must-have. Both men and women can use cardigans in the place of jackets and they can be paired with just about anything. Moreover, they help keep the chills away.

Leather

There is a certain sense of power that comes with a leather outfit. Last year, leather featured a lot in most fashion releases by renowned designers like Michael Kors. These days, you can find almost everything in leather; from skirts, dresses, pants and jackets. There is no reason why you should not invest in at least one leather piece.

The power suit

A power suit is nothing unusual for men as it is a must-have for them. However, not so for women. Nevertheless, power suits will most likely take centre stage in women's fashion in 2022. Go ahead and get yourself one. The best thing is that they come in all colours and prints and you have a lot of options to choose from.

Pleats

Pleated skirts were big in 2020 and 2021 and they are not going away anytime soon. Perhaps it's time to jump on this trend.

Bonus tip

In the past, people have shied away from vibrant colours. However, last year, a lot of vibrant hues made it to the runaways and it's just a matter of time before these find their way to the street.

When going for colourful outfits, ensure you know the rules of mixing, matching and blocking to avoid looking like a clown.

Remember...

While these are the fashion staples that are expected to reign in 2022, style is personal and you can come up with your own as long as it works for your body type and gives you confidence. Who says you can't start your own fad?
