Bomber Jackets & Colour Pops: Five Key A/W 2022 Trends

Bomber Jackets & Colour Pops: Five Key A/W 2022 Trends

With summer almost over it's time to shift our focus to the coming season - Autumn/Winter 2022.

We'll soon be ready to pack away those summer dresses and sandals and get comfortable and cosy with our winter woollies and boots.

If you're keen to know what everyone will be wearing and talking about in the coming weeks, here are five key A/W 2022 trends to watch out for...

1. Tailor made

Green Blazer A/W 2022 Trends


The tailor made trend is all about picking pieces that look like they were made just for you - from tapered trousers to fitted blazers. 

This trend is ideal for mixing up your workwear style by investing in a few key pieces to elevate your 9 to 5 attire.

When it comes to embracing a tailor-made style, double-breasted blazers and classic fitted suits are ideal wardrobe staples.

Check out this blazer from JJXX in this gorgeous green shade to add a twist to your typical suiting style. 

2. Colour Pop

Another key trend of the upcoming Autumn/Winter season is the not-so-subtle art of Colour Pop dressing.

To put it simply, this style is all about adding pops of colour to your look - from bright tights to colourful accessories, or going all-out in a gorgeous brightly-coloured outfit.

The Colour Pop trend centres around 'dopamine dressing' which is about wearing cheerful colours to lift your mood and is ideal for occasion wear dresses or even for jazzing up a work outfit.

Embrace colour with this fabulous dress from Caroline Kilkenny in this gorgeous purple shade which would be ideal for a wedding guest, birthday party or special event.

3. Biker Chic

When we talk about Biker Chic we're not referring to the kind of cycling gear you would see in the Tour de France.

Instead, we're focusing on the leather and bomber jackets styles for men and women that were originally made famous by motorcyclists.

Why is this style back in fashion? You can thank the recent release of the Top Gun sequel for that one.

It would seem that Hollywood star Tom Cruise is as influential as ever as bomber jackets and biker style has taken the catwalk by storm in recent weeks.

You can get the look with this classic casual bomber jacket in sand from Tommy Jeans and for the guys out there, this men's jacket from Carhartt in a rich tobacco brown shade will look great with a variety of outfit options from work day to socialising.

Team your cool jacket with a pair of dark-tinted sunglasses and some classic trainers and you're all set to rock this trend.

4. Valentino Pink

If you've been glued to the pages of fashion magazines and keeping a keen eye on red carpet appearances in recent months you won't be surprised by this trend. Valentino Pink - synonymous with the iconic Italian fashion designer - is all over the runway this season.

This vibrant pink hue has been featured in a variety of styles from dresses to accessories from designer brands right down to the high street.

This bright pink Mario Valentino handbag is a perfect example of how you can incorporate a trend into your look in a subtle way.

You can also embrace this hot pink trend with a gorgeous dress which is ideal for a special occasion, particularly for a Mother of the Bride or Groom or a wedding guest.

Taking inspiration from the famed Valentino pink, we have this stunning dress from Gabriella Sanchez in this eye-catching fuchsia shade to add a touch of glamour to the big day.

5. Unexpected layering

 Jumper Dress

Our final key trend of the Autumn/Winter season of 2022 is a twist on an autumnal staple - unexpected layering. Of course, with the weather likely to take a colder turn in the coming weeks, we'll all be reaching for our jackets and jumpers.

But unexpected layering takes things a step further than your average pull-over outfit so be prepared to see jumpers under dresses and jumpers and cardigans in bright shades paired together this season.

You can jump onboard this cosy and comfortable trend yourself with this fabulous jumper dress from Selected Femme, paired with this relaxed-fit pair of Levis jeans.
