Trend Report: 4 Styles to Try Today!
Let’s face it, the last couple of years have been steeped in contradictions, fashion-wise. It’s a love-hate relationship – we love our loose-fitting loungewear and snug sweatpants, but we also yearn for a sense of normalcy. The desire for stability has manifested into bolder and more drastic shifts in fashion choices – according to Instagram’s first-ever annual trend report. The younger generation are “using fashion as a vehicle for joy, optimism and self-expression”.
Maximalist fashion is the next big thing. Less is more? Nope, more is more. Let’s quench the insatiable thirst for being ~extra~ this year with these tips from YISHION.

Nothing screams “flamboyance” and a hint of Y2K more than the classic denim-on-denim trend. Ask any millennials, this head-to-toe style isn’t anything new. Remember Justin and Britney’s infamous red-carpet moment?
Well, move aside Justin and Britney, it's time for us to reclaim this look.
Throw on this jacquard print jacket and trousers as a co-ord – they’re great as individual pieces, but even better together. The pattern is bold, and also adds a fun twist to the usual double-denim look we’re used to. Opt for an inner wear, such as a tube top, to break up the denim-frenzy.
Did we mention, they’re both made with cotton material so you definitely won’t have to worry about comfort.
Pick unique denim pieces that comes with:
- Mixed Fabrics
- Contrast Stitch
These details help to create a more interesting denim-on-denim look!

Sexy and empowering silhouettes for 2022? We’re here for it. It’s cutouts galore and we all know who made it trendy – channel your inner Regina George and think bold, think rebellious.
Cutouts come in so many different (and fun!) variations, meaning there's definitely a suitable style for everyone interested in trying it out. They aren't just limited to the omission of materials, but can also include anything that creates negative space i.e. slits and tie-string details.
Just incorporating this element into your ‘fit elevates it tremendously – so you can keep the rest of your outfit pretty simple!
Basic String Bandeau Top
Scoop Neck Top with Ruched Detail
These wrap-tie detailing are a cool way to show some skin. Aside from that, they effectively draw the eyes to whichever body part you want to accentuate (usually the ribs/hips area), leading to a slimming effect.
These strings can also be tied in an array of ways – so be creative with them!
Long Sleeve V-Neck Cropped Shirt
This simple white cropped shirt is a basic way to bring the string-detail trend to your everyday wardrobe – tie a knot or wrap it around your torso, totally your choice!
We love some sexy slit-moments here at YISHION. This floral piece is a must-have in your ‘drobe – dress it up for a date with some heels and baguette bag, or dress it down with some ‘sneaks for a casual day out.
3. Pop of Colours
The brighter, the better.
Yup, highlighter hues are back in 2022, adding a refreshing zest to your wardrobe. Think loud – hot pink, lime green, bright purple, cobalt blues, and marigold are your go-to choices. These celebratory colours are bright and cheery, guaranteed to put you in a good mood!
If you prefer softer pastel hues to the former, you'll be glad to know that spring/summer 2022 also has an alternative on-trend colour to add to your wardrobe: warm, buttery yellow. Our “SMILE” series in this shade will definitely put a grin on your face.
Riding on the Y2K nostalgia wave are mini-skirts, more specifically, the micro low-waisted minis. Of course, the under-the-belly-button waistlines aren’t to everyone’s taste – many of us sworn to never go back, we’re all high-waisted gals afterall.
An effortless way to make a denim skirt feel fresh is to choose one with interesting details – such as a contrast pocket. For styling-wise, consider pairing it with your favourite top (in matching shades!) and knee-high boots. Then, add on some accessories — like sunnies and a colourful handbag.
Use a belt to get the micro-mini look without actually having to fully commit to the low-waisted bottoms!
