Question: if someone were to peek inside your closet, what insights do you think they’d glean? Whether we like it or not, our wardrobes can say a lot about us. Nothing in my mind speaks more to someone’s personality besides astrology than what they choose to wear. Our clothes are putting our values on our sleeves—they can display what we put a monetary value on (whether investing in designer bags or supporting Black-owned brands), what matters most to us. Most importantly, they put our whole personality on display.
You can push a few hangers to the side in anyone’s closet and immediately tell if someone is pragmatic or enigmatic simply by seeing if their closet is filled with neutrals or colors. You can tell if someone values following trends or standing out from the crowd by which printed clothing they wear. Basically, prints can speak long before we’ve opened our mouths. They’re a powerful tool for self-expression, and no one understands that better than designers.
While previous seasons may have been all about color trends or extreme hemlines, Fall/ Winter 2022 collections made it clear that prints (in all forms) were back and louder than ever. To prove that point, I’ve rounded up the 6 biggest print trends to know about this fall. Whether you’re a bit more minimalist or a maximalist to your core, there’s a print in here that will speak to your soul.
