To say that we’re excited about spring would be a gargantuan understatement. With weddings back on the agenda (the sort that bears a striking resemblance to those held prior to 2020), holidays on the horizon, and the general enthusiasm that comes with brighter, warmer days, spring is all we can talk about right now. And with it, a large portion of our conversations centre around what we’ll be wearing this spring.
Like anyone else, each of our editors has their own unique aesthetic, honed by the things which they, of course, like, but also defined by the things they don’t. What you choose not to wear says just as much about you as the things you do, and our editors are no exception to this rule.
Curious to find out what they’ll actually be wearing this spring, I asked my colleagues to share the spring fashion trends they’ll be backing in 2022 and, just as importantly, the trends they won’t be wearing. Please, however, don’t take it to heart if one of our editors is bypassing the trend you subscribe to most—this is all personal preference, and the last thing we want to do is take away from yours. Honestly? Even I was surprised at some of the trends my teammates have decided to skip, but then again, life would be pretty dull if we all dressed the same, wouldn’t it?
Scroll on to see the seven spring trends our editors are skipping, balanced out by the seven they’ll be wearing instead.
