Fashion is a lifestyle; an ever-evolving lifestyle. This means that a blink is all it takes for new fashion trends to take over. The most surprising aspect of fashion is how even the outdated trends seem to make a comeback after some years. Fashion trends are not linear and so it is best to embrace them when they are currently making waves.
In 2022, we saw a lot of fashion trends die, just as we saw the birth of new ones.

Cold Shoulder Tops
What are experts saying about cold-shoulder tops this year? “While these are still a favorite for many women, this trend has been around awhile and is simply starting to feel a little bit tired,” stylist and model Tara Dupuis tells Insider.
They might have ben the trendy thing few years ago, but currently chunky glasses are now the trendy thing. Mirrored eye glasses are beginning to look not only outdated but a little unoriginal. They also do not go well with a lot of outfits unlike the big framed glasses.
While skater skirts got their name due to their resemblance to a figure skater’s skirt, 2022 is more focused on other sports — namely tennis and golf. “The tennis skirt has been a design classic since the ’60s and has remained just as desirable,” says Alex Eagle, owner and designer of Alex Eagle Sporting Club (via Vogue U.K.).
This one may be kind of a given in 2022, but we feel it should be included on the list because of its importance.

Fast-forward to five years later and other brands have followed suit, making fur a 2022 fashion no-no (via PETA).
