Perhaps one of the most surprising trends for 2022 is print patterns. Designers from London to New York have all showcased a vast selection of prints from leopard and cheetah to checks and stripes. Prints are a great way to update your existing wardrobe. You can match checkered pants with your favorite white T-shirt or go all-out with a geometric dress inspired by the ’60s and your classic black flats. Here, we give you a rundown of five key prints for 2022.
From colorful Scottish tartan to simple monochrome houndstooth, checks come in all colors and fabrics in 2022. Wear a yellow and red checkered pant with a classic staple like a neutral T-shirt or white blouse. Or, wear all checks with a pinafore dress or a playsuit when the weather gets warmer.
Geometric patterns never seem to age, and it’s a look fashion designers can’t get enough of. The good news is it’s easy to add this style to your wardrobe and even easier to wear it. The latest 2022 fashion trends for women show you can choose a column dress that falls to the knee in optical swirls in acid-bright colors or a monochrome print. You can then match your dress with a pair of classic patent Mary Jane shoes or flats.

Fashion editors will always tell you that animal prints never go out of style. A great way to wear animal print is to incorporate the print into your accessories. You can update a simple look of jeans and a T-shirt with a long scarf in cheetah or leopard print or add a touch of zebra print with a printed sneaker or shoe.
Whether wide or skinny, stripes are enjoying their moment this year in the fashion world. Printed stripes are a look you can really go to town with. You can mix and match your stripes with a vertical stripe top and a horizontal stripe pant. For a look that is flattering, you can also opt for a vertical stripe dress with stripes about an inch wide. Try to accessorize your stripes with matching colors for a style that’s on-trend right now.
Bold Polka Dots
We have seen a slew of celebrities sporting polka-dot dresses this season, and fashion designers are following the trend. The polka-dot print isn’t necessarily as bold as you might think. The way to wear the look is to buy tiny dot prints in chiffon and other lighter fabrics. Think frills and billowing sleeves when going for this look. Go for a classic black-on-white spot or white-on-black spot and complete the look with some black sandals and a dash of red lipstick.
With the major fashion lines awash with prints, you can easily look contemporary with a print this year. Choose to accessorize with a printed scarf or wear your print with a fashion-forward dress in a selection of colors. Say yes to prints this season.
