Gorpcore fashion trend for men
A look inspired by hikers and nature enthusiasts, the “gorp” in gorpcore stands for the term commonly used for trail mix: Good Ol’ Raisins and Peanuts. The look focuses on functional clothing that incorporates earth tones, quilted fabrics, beanies and hiking style boots, according to Garcia. These joggers have that outdoor-inspired feel and are all about comfort, but with the polished look of corduroy.
Puffer jackets are another winter fashion statement that happen to be a part of this trend. You can find this style in a range of colors, including navy and olive green, to incorporate into any wardrobe.
Pearl fashion trend for women
These aren’t your grandmother’s pearls! Pearl embellishments are also popping up in the fashion world and this sweater is another piece that combines style and function. You can find it in black or white and pair it with everything from skirts to pants.
Sherpa and flannel trend for kids
The sherpa that once lined your snow boots is now a full-on fashion statement. This fuzzy hoodie is made from 30% recycled polyester for all of the cozy feels.
Leggings aren’t going anywhere in 2022. For girls, they continue to act as a versatile pair of bottoms that can be styled in ways beyond lounging or working out.
Fringe fashion trend for women
Fringe is also making a comeback this year. Incorporating it into your outfits can be as simple as a statement skirt like this one, or a jacket with fringe detailing.
