Bold Colors / Sporty aesthetics
While black and white are always classic winter colors, don’t be afraid to experiment with small amount of bold hues this year. Bright pinks, deep greens, and even neon yellows are all popular choices for winter 2022. You can also use these colors to add color to any outfit.
The idea to add elements of bold colors was originally inspired by sportswear, but if sporty is not your aesthetic, fear not. The trend works with Y2K and boho as well.
