Timeless and Chic: The 7 Trends You'll Never Regret Buying, Period

While we love a fun and trendy item here at Who What Wear, there's nothing we love more than a trend that has longevity. Fashion is fast-paced, and things are always coming and going, but some trends tend to stick around for the long haul. In other words, they transform from trends into timeless wardrobe staples, and who wouldn't want that? We went through and listed all the 2022 trends that we are confident will age well and continue to be our favorites this year and beyond.

Below, you'll find seven 2022 trends that not only are sure to become timeless staples but that will also enhance your wardrobe for the better. The items ahead are anything but fleeting. Keep scrolling to find the trend you'll want to add to your 2022 mood board.

If we're being honest, we'll never get sick of '90s fashion. The era was filled with luxe-looking pieces and the "relaxed minimalism" style, which is easy to wear and will always look chic. There was a surge of '90s-inspired handbags on the 2022 runways, and we're on board.

Breezy Button-Downs

Button-downs are a classic item, but the fashion set has been wearing them nonstop this past year. Whether it's clean white or a pop of color, it's something that'll get so much wear.

Maxi Hemlines

Maxi hemlines may be at their trendiest now, but they're something that'll just always look chic. Even if you pair a maxi skirt with just a plain white tank, it'll look put-together.

Woven Bags

French girls love this handbag trend, and it seems to come around every summer without fail. Channel your inner Jane Birkin with a woven handbag this year. It'll serve you well, from brunch to the beach. 

Big Leather Jackets

While leather jackets are a classic item, the 2022 mantra is the bigger, the better. Celebrities such as Hailey Bieber have championed the looser jacket trend, and we can confirm it'll add the "cool-girl" vibe to any outfit.

Say goodbye to teeny-tiny handbags and hello to more practical and oversize options. With this trend, you won't have to worry about all your essentials not fitting into your purse.

Baggy Pants

Loose tailoring is an editor favorite thanks to the comfort and versatility of the trend. While there are many variations of baggy pants, menswear-style trousers are our top pick.

After interning at Who What Wear in 2019, she found her way to the team after graduating from LIM College in 2022 with a fashion media degree. She's also spent time writing and working for publications such as Fashionista, Coveteur, and Nylon, but she always knew that Who What Wear was where she was meant to be. When she's on the job, she's perusing runway shows, analyzing the latest thing fellow Gen Zers are up to on the internet, and sharing what she can about the modest-fashion market. You can also catch her dabbling in entertainment, talking about the costume choices of the latest Netflix series or diving deeper into how the plotline affects the viewers in a myriad of ways. Lastly, she likes to create content for Who What Wear's TikTok. Her personal time is spent doing similar but also different things—deep diving into almost every new TV show (Bridgerton, Gilmore Girls, and Stranger Things are favorites), planning her next local getaway (whenever that may be), and reading the latest Emily Henry or Sally Rooney novel in one sitting.
