Who would have thought swishy pants would be making their way into the conversation in 2022, but here we are. This year has seen the return and rise of unexpected fashion pieces, ranging from the obscure to the nostalgic. The mood sort of feels like anything goes right now, which makes getting dressed a bit more fun and experimental. Lately, I’ve been embracing these offbeat and niche trends for some sartorial variety, and I’m happy to say that I haven’t looked back.
Parachute pants—or swishy pants as I like to call them—have almost officially replaced my everyday denim, and 99% of the dresses I’ve been adding to my cart don’t have straps. Long live the tube dress! But it seems like I’m not the only one shifting gears toward these emerging niche trends. Stylish people, from editors to models and fashion creatives, have been incorporating them into their wardrobes too. They’re gaining traction now, but it’s a guarantee they’ll be everywhere soon. As far as I can tell, these trends will be my forever pieces for a minute.
