As a VIP stylist at Nordstrom, Sandy Koszarek spends her days helping her clients build out their wardrobes. Often, she'll recommend new trends for her clients to consider that could help get their closets "up to speed" so that they will feel current and of the moment. Koszarek actually decided to share her list of must-try trends with us below in case you're looking for a bit of styling and shopping inspiration for the season.
If you keep scrolling, you'll uncover a range of highly wearable 2022 trends, including statement-making finds (ahem, bold colors and cutouts) and stylish, elevated basics like forward denim and tailoring silhouettes. Go on for further insights as well as a smattering of product suggestions if you, too, want to add one of Koszarek's must-haves into your own offering.
1. Maxi Dresses
"I recommend adding a maxi dress to your wardrobe. From casual to dressy, there is a perfect style for everyone. Try wearing with sneakers or platform sandals for a relaxed cool-girl vibe, or wear with strappy sandals for an after-five look."
2. Wide-Leg Jeans
"We love our denim! Update your denim wardrobe by adding high-waisted, wide-leg jeans. This denim is versatile and easy to style."
3. Relaxed Blazers
"Update your wardrobe by adding a relaxed-style blazer. This trendy blazer will complete every look and take you from day to evening. Try wearing it with matching wide-leg trousers, shorts, or your favorite denim."
"Cutouts provide a fun, unexpected element of style and glamour. I recommend wearing cutouts at the shoulder, waist, or back. Plus, a little goes a long way."
5. Bold Colors
"Incorporate trendy colors like bright green, orange, pink, red, and yellow to brighten your wardrobe. Wear one color or combine several, whichever suits your personality and style."
6. White Jeans
"White and ecru jeans are trending this time of year and are a must-have to get your closet up to speed for summer. Try adding a relaxed fit like a straight-leg, bootcut, or flare option."
