Brits move away from mini skirts, low-rise jeans and double-breasted jeans as the classic rises in 2022

BRITS will wear mini skirts, low rise jeans and twin jeans in 2022 as the classic rises.

The ‘noughties’ look has caught fire in 2021, according to the annual ASOS Trends report, and will continue to define the style for the next 12 months.

Double jeans are expected to return in 2022

Demand will also continue for ’90s-inspired clothing – baggy jeans, long pants and bright, bold colors – that surged in 2021.

As the online clothing giant stated:

  • Party heels sell at a rate of a pair every 13 seconds
  • Wise green was the favorite color of bridesmaids’ dresses
  • ‘Back to the Office’ spurt in black pants sales – the second half of the year saw a 30 per cent increase in black pants sales
  • The halter neck, which covers the shoulders, is expected to become a fashion staple in 2022, following a 37,437 percent increase in searches for this item in the ASOS market.

In a separate ASOS survey of 2,000 adults, 40 percent of people between the ages of 18 and 35 said they spent more on clothing in 2021 than they did in 2020.

While 40 per cent also said they had bought fashion or cosmetics to celebrate the easing of lockdown again in July.

And it looks like shoppers can’t wait to get their new look together – 67 per cent of 18-35-year-olds plan to make Boxing Day sales, spending an average of £119 each.

Gen Zs and Millennials are the biggest bargain hunters, with three in five (67 percent) saying they are spending in sales this year and jeans (45 percent), coats (36 percent) and trainers (36 percent) ranking high on their wish list.

A quarter (24 percent) of 18-35-year-olds say they will wear oversized, loose-fitting clothing in 2022 and a fifth (20 percent) will choose big, bold colors.

This is a continuation from 2021 where plus-size styles made up 60 percent of men’s jersey sales and there was a 135 percent increase in women’s flares sold.

The bridal and wedding dress segment was huge in 2021 – after a series of shutdowns and wedding cancellations – as customers bought more than 1.5 million brides and bridesmaids dresses, and the long-sleeved Iris maxi wedding dress was the number one choice for brides.

Grooms and guests were well-fitting and well-dressed, with sales of more than 100,000 full suits and demand for formal shoes rising 80 percent.

The Love Island effect also worked its magic – after watching winner Millie Court in a tie-dye format, it sold out within a week.

But she got money from Jackson Marche’s Department of Sex Education, which led to the sale of 34,000 jackets during the fall/winter season.

“The ’90s trends are still very popular with fashionistas, especially their twenties, who haven’t experienced flares and crop tops last time,” said Vanessa Spence, ASOS Commercial and Visual Design Director.

“We’ll also see a revival of 2000s trends next year, so expect low-rise jeans, double-breasted jeans and mini skirts to come in a lot of mods.

“If you need inspiration after lockdown with muted colours, bright colors were seen on all the catwalks at recent shows, so it’s going to be huge in 2022.”
