Hemlines may be shrinking with the onset of the micro-miniskirt trend that is already huge for spring as clothing gets skimpier and skimpier, but it turns out something is happening with hemlines on the opposite side of the spectrum as well. Long skirts and dresses were also major on the S/S 22 runways, culminating in the maxi trend that I’m predicting will be big this season, and I want to try it out the moment spring hits.
Brands including Saint Laurent and Peter Do showcased beautiful maxi skirts in their collections, while Loewe and Chanel showcased maxi dress silhouettes. The designs range from breezy and gauzy to more tailored pieces, but the one common denominator is the floor-sweeping hemlines. The maxi trend is already gaining traction among the fashion set and I’m expecting to see more of it as we head into spring. The looks read as luxe and instantly polished, all the while directional and cool. Ahead, more on the maxi trend for spring 2022.
