Whether they're oversized or cropped, cardigans are making their way back into everyone's wardrobes. The perfect styling sees them paired with loose-fitting jeans and a pair of sneakers or if you're going for a more sophisticated look, throw on a floral dress and grab a pair of strappy sandals.

Slip dresses.

Up next we have this silky garment that has re-ignited the '90s across the board. Whether you're going for a modest look or a sultry evening statement, a slip dress always manages to fit the occasion perfectly.

Square-toed sandals.

Now, I remember a time throughout the 2010s when people were too afraid to put their toes out on display, but square-toed sandals are just too hard to resist. Everyone's got a pair. If you haven't, what are you waiting for? It's time to invest!

Knee-high socks.

For some people these never went out of fashion, but for a lot of us, they're a painful memory of high school uniforms. However, they're back and they've re-invented themselves to provide a cute spin on what would otherwise be a tragically boring outfit.

If you're feeling extra spicy, make them sheer knee-highs.

Acid/Tye dye Print.

We're not here to talk about the washed-out jeans, we're here for the bad b****, bold print that's taken the influencer world by storm. Bodycon dresses and matching co-ords, we just can't get enough!

Thick headbands.


Whether its pearls, velvet, or ruffles, thick headbands are the accessory of the year.

Animal backpacks.

While the '90s were a place for cute and fluffy statement pieces, 2021 has taken the trend and bedazzled it. Who knew something could be so cute and glamorous at the same time?


This fashion piece is always in and out of the spotlight, stemming all the way back to the Victorian-era when every woman owned a few. These days they're being paired with mom jeans and reeboks for that effortless casual-but-totally-not-casual TikTok influencer look.

Claw Clips.

They're back and they're just as good as ever. Say goodbye to thin-ass hair ties and say hello to a one-step claw clip. It's the perfect way to keep your hair up without that headache at the end of the day.


That's the trend. Butterflies. Phone cases, jewelry, crop tops, butterflies are the most trendy insect right now.

Sheer lipgloss.

Long gone are the bold, matte lips. Now it's all about overlined lips with pretty pink gloss.

Sweater vests.

Oversized sweater vests with white shirts and platform boots have become a staple in 2021 and you know what? I'm not even mad about it because it looks amazing.

Chunky sandals.

Chunky sandals are the perfect summer piece for this year so I'd suggest you get yourself a pair before the hype dies down.

Cycling shorts.


Remember when Princess Diana gave us this iconic look? Yeah? Well, Gen Z clearly recognizes style because they've made one of the biggest comebacks over the past year or so and I have a feeling they're here to stay.

Bucket hats.


The bucket hat craze started a few years ago, but now it's sitting comfortably at the top of the trend list as more and more people invest in the headpiece.

Pastel shades.

Nowadays you can buy everything in a pastel shade. Everything. My personal favorite is the light, sage green, but I hear lilac is the top dog for a lot of people too.

Corduroy trousers.

High-waisted, of course. A generous 10/10 from me.

Cat-eye sunglasses.

Another trend I can totally get down with. Cat-eye sunglasses are the perfect way to add that extra bit of faux celebrity spice to your outfit.

Oversized puffer jackets.

If you're not drowning in it, it's too small.


Does anyone even have long hair these days? A slinky bob-cut with a parted fringe has quickly become a fan favorite in the world of fashion and there's a good reason why... It brings a level of chic to anyone's vibe and who wouldn't want that?

Plaid co-ords.

By this, I mean full on Alicia Silverstone in Clueless. What a look. And paired with a pair of chunky sandals and knee-high socks? You're onto a winner there.

White sneakers.

Do you remember the days when everyone would wear a full black outfit and then chuck on a pair of Paris red or Nicki-Minaj pink heels? If you do, I'm sorry you had to witness such a historic fashion atrocity. Now all people seem to wear is white sneakers. Calm, casual, it's a yes from me.

Socks and heels.

No, I don't mean a pair of kitten heels and black socks. I mean a glamorous pair of velvet sandals and sheer socks. Simply amazing. And if you've got a pair of gloves to match, get them on and show the world you're that b****.

Leather blazers.

Shoulder pads and all, leather blazers have grown to become everyone's most daring piece yet. And yes, even more daring than the corsets! It takes a brave woman, or man, but mainly woman, to pull off such a hit-or-miss item of clothing. Check out Kendall Jenner rocking the look here.

'90s Blowout.


And finally, we have the queen of all hairstyles, the iconic '90s blowout.

I'm talking straight Cindy Crawford meets Jennifer Aniston.


And we're totally living for it here at 22 Words.

And so is everyone else, apparently...

It's all about the bouncy layers, the thickness, and the volume in every strand of hair...

Yes. Just yes.

So the next time you're down at the salon, do yourself a favor and ask for long and light bangs with round layers and just thank me later.

You know I got you, girl!
