Writing about summer 2022 fashion has had me running to Thesaurus.com to look up all the synonyms of “bold” to describe the trends (my favorites include “audacious,” “gutsy,” “nervy,” and “daring”). Listen, I’ll admit that I’m not much of a risk-taker when it comes to my own wardrobe, but that doesn’t mean I don’t know an excellent head-turning trend when I see one!
Below, I rounded up a trio of the biggest and boldest pieces of the season. They might not be for everyone and that’s totally okay. I, for one, won’t be participating in the sky-high platform shoe trend because I’d feel positively unwieldy with six inches added to my 5’10” frame. But that’s the beauty of fashion: One person’s trash is another person’s treasure. Okay, I probably should have found a prettier metaphor, but you get the idea.
