If there’s one thing I’ve learned from my days as a fashion editor, it’s how to track down micro-trends before anyone else catches wind of them. The official announcement may not have been released for many of these trends that are currently having their moment, but that hasn’t stopped them from slowly but surely taking over my Instagram feed.
It’s crazy how fast these trends often pop up, once I noticed the under-$15 flower hair clip, it was like every It girl seemed to already have it in her repertoire. My roundup of summer 2022 micro-trends could have gone on and on but I had to narrow it down to the best of the best. Below, you’ll find the seven micro-trends I insist everyone knows about before summer fully kicks off.
