For those who love experimenting with contrasting aesthetics, summer 2022 is the season for you. It feels like a million trends have suddenly converged in these past few months, reaching peak popularity across the fashion scene. There's the "clean girl" bunch on Tik Tok and the Y2K blitz raging on Instagram, and of course, Parisian elegance is always present. The above aesthetics are just a sampling of the many styles pervading right now, and it can be daunting to sort through them all, which is why we always like when a store can provide all of the most relevant trends in one place.

Urban Outfitters is that sort of haven, where you can bet that pretty much anything you choose is on-trend. It pays to keep a close eye on its new arrivals, as you can expect a wave of cool and fresh pieces to hit the site at any given moment. We've decided to cut to the chase and break down the trends that are really shaping the summer, and all of them are at Urban Outfitters of course. Keep reading ahead to shop our favorites.

Maxi Lengths


The opposite extreme of the micro-mini obsession is one of the most pervading trends of 2022—maxi skirts. You can try a cargo version if you lay on the edgy side of things or a flirty sheer skirt if you love your clothes on the romantic side.

Parachute Pants

Baggy, baggier, and baggiest—parachute pants are the cool-girl answer to wearing pants in the summer. They should be so long that they're almost puddling on the ground and in an airy material that keeps the flowy silhouette. This trend is still a bit early, but luckily, Urban Outfitters has a ton of options for a great price.

The idea of wearing lingerie outside is nothing new, but this season, the look feels a bit more intentional with lacy corsets and bodiced minidresses.

The '90s have come knocking with vigor, and this time, it has bestowed upon 2022 the tube dress. Minimal yet statement making, it's an easy wardrobe solution for anything from date night to an evening of drinks with friends. If you really like to be on the go, shop the bodysuit version, which is convenient for running errands.

Sporty Sneakers

Okay, white tanks were never "out," but they're definitely at fever pitch. While designer iterations are a thing among fashion people, a regular brandless one is just as chic and effortless. Honestly, save your money and stock up on the affordable ones below. Style them with baggy denim, loose trousers, or a miniskirt.
