Trend: Loud and Vibrant Maximalism will Stay in 2022
Let’s say goodbye to mundanity and welcome the rise of maximalism. What’s causing it to amplify? We blame Covid-19 and monotonous fashion statements during that time. Enters maximalism with a philosophy that says, ‘more is more’.
But do we agree to that statement? Hell yes! Especially in gloomy times when you need something bold and beautiful to pop up, a maximalist trend is that knight in shining armour to save us from the dark. When we say maximalism, we’re talking about statement making dresses that can not only appear chic but also helps us boost our mood. After all, the wind blew towards minimalism for so long that the resurgence of wild prints and heavy saturation was bound to happen. The Y2K trend did make an impact when it comes to unearthing love for a little boldness. But this time around, we are going all out, max.
Let’s take a page out of the book of a Calgarian Influencer Ania B. who’s touted for going over the edge with her anti-minimalist dressing. Or how about we ponder upon Barbie Ferriera’s recent outfit post that scored a staggering 1 million likes. Pretty insane right? Several other celebrities have championed the art of carrying maximalist dressing unapologetically. (And FYI, it is gen-z approved.)
Maximalism isn’t only about wearing bigger clothes; it encapsulates the art of layering, mismatching and extra prints that get eyes hooked on. Even if you’re wearing frills and ruffles, your game is still going strong. In short, if you’re amplifying your style statement, you qualify for being a maximalist. Finding it hard to find the perfect pieces to pull off a maximalist look?
