When seeing trends strutted down fashion week’s runways sometimes, they can seem a bit OTT and not wearable in our everyday looks.

But Style By Bella is here with her expert fashion knowledge to show us how to get these trends straight from the catwalk into our wardrobes.

Winter 2022 fashion trends are all about everything bold, bright and beige. There’s definitely nothing boring about these winter fashion trends, they are here to brighten up these dark chilly days.

From pink and green that should never be seen (until now) to leathers that’ll bring a contemporary edge to any look, Bella tells us everything we need to know about how to style the latest fashion trends this winter.

 

PINK AND GREEN 

One of the biggest trends we are seeing everywhere is the pop of colours. There are two specific colours that are taking over – pink and green. Imagine fuschia hot pink and bright vivid green – dopamine dressing is going nowhere this year.

These colours were spotted strutted down the runway by some of the biggest fashion brands in the world including the likes of Valentino, Chanel and Dior’s models dressed head-to-toe in green or pink.

TOP TIPS TO GET THE TREND

  1. If you are feeling brave, wear a coat or blazer in a pop of colour that you can wear over any winter look.
  2. Bright pink and green go great with either navy, black or white. If you’re wearing these vibrant colours near your face you‘ll instantly feel a lift.
  3. If you want to go all out, you can combine pink and green, for example by wearing a green jumper, a pair of trousers or jeans and layer with a hot pink coat or jacket.
  4. Wear a jacket in a pop of colour or an accent accessory like a bag or pair of shoes if you want to play it safe.
  5. If you’re feeling adventurous why not combine two trends into one by wearing pink and green animal print.
  6. If you’re wanting an edgy look (as seen on Bella herself bottom left) style a green/pink midi dress with a pair of cowboy boots.

LEATHER

I’m loving this timeless leather trend that never goes out of fashion. It doesn’t have to be real leather it can also be vegan-friendly leather. Think jackets, blazers, trousers, leggings, shirts, skirts, boots and bags.
There’s also a lot of coloured leather in the shops as the 90s trend is back. Have a rummage through your wardrobe and I’m sure you will find something leather/PU leather that you can wear this season.

TOP TIPS TO GET THE TREND

  1. If you already have a biker leather jacket or leather blazer, make sure you bring it out this season. We’re also seeing leather trousers and leggings all back again. Consider the leather pants/leggings a wardrobe staple that you can wear year after year.
  2. You’ll will also see plenty of tops, shackets and dresses in leather/PU leather this season. If you are a lover of colour, you can also wear coloured leather pieces.
  3. Style leather with any type of fabric, for a casual look wear it with denim, jersey or knitwear and for a dressier look wear it with luxurious silky fabrics or sequins.
  4. Since leather is quite harsh and edgy, add soft elements and details to balance out your outfit.
  5. When it comes to footwear you will see plenty of flat chunky boots, lace-up or Chelsea boots on the high street (the chunkier the better).

NEUTRAL LAYERING

It’s about the neutrals this winter. If you’re not into the colourful trend, you will find love layering of neutral tones that creates a luxurious look. Imagine, creams, beiges, taupes and browns all worn together.

The main character Nora in the Netflix series “The Watcher” was wearing neutral outfits throughout the whole series.

TOP TIPS TO GET THE TREND

  1. When you’re styling an outfit with neutrals, I usually add three shades, for example, beige, camel and brown. I chose three because if you add two neutrals it might look like a mismatch, but if you add a third one it will look intentional.
  2. Add an extra luxurious touch by adding jewellery, necklaces, earrings, bracelets or rings. As your neutral outfit should be minimal you can go crazy with jewellery for this look.
  3. Think head to toe, as the colours are so soft and light, don’t finish the look with a pair of black boots or coloured trainers, go for neutral footwear as well to create a streamlined outfit.
