Originally Published:

The best looks from the spring 2022 runways were defined by unexpected twists on classic shapes and techniques. The 1960s received major nods, getting the Mod treatment from Courrèges, Fendi, and Dior, while Rodarte and Marni went the flower power route. Catsuits, a trend seen on nearly every celebrity from Kim Kardashian to Dua Lipa and Hailey Bieber, were rendered in luscious black latex at Saint Laurent and Rastafarian colors at Theophilio. And the pull of the early 2000s remained irresistible, showing up in the form of exposed thongs, super low-rise bottoms, and of course, the micro mini-skirt. Now that spring is in full swing, we’re starting to see wearable interpretations of these themes show up in our favorite stores. Keep track of it all with our shoppable guide to staying on top of the season’s top trends.

This archetype of the 1960s Mod look was everywhere on the runways—Space Age shapes abounded, as did ultra-mini hems. Consider this your go-to party vibe for the season.

Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Candy-colored flower power prints, smiley faces, and peace signs evoke the feeling of a modern, elevated take on Haight/Ashbury archetypes. On the dressier side, it’s the perfect starting point for a beach wedding. More casual pieces make for an effortless weekend look.

Bianca Jagger, Diana Ross, and Donna Summer would covet these shimmering ensembles. Evening wear this season is all about scarves, bodysuits, and draped party dresses.

Halter Skelter

Halter neck dresses ruled the runways, ranging from body-hugging minis to swishy evening looks. In stores, we’re loving the many casual interpretations of the style.

Bohemian Riche

Designers took bohemian shapes, colors and details to new heights by pairing them with glitzy fabrics and body-conscious shapes. If you’re sick of your usual LBD, this is a great way to break out of a formalwear rut.

The Aughts

Our high school wardrobes never looked so chic. Micro mini skirts, exposed midriffs, wide belts, and thongs peeking out of the tops of super low-rise bottoms are everywhere these days—here are a few of the best iterations.

While some designers chose to play with traditional uniform pieces or throwback going-out gear, others opted for a more casual take on a high school wardrobe, from high fashion sportswear to eclectic, thrift-shop-inspired layering.
