TRENDING: LESS IS MORE

We’re calling it – this year is the summer of skin. From Cara Delevingne’s risqué look on the Met Gala red carpet to the Miu Miu mini skirt that sparked a movement, the fashion world has gone wild for flesh-flashing, barely-there styles. Hemlines are shorter than ever, tops are tiny (if at all in existence) and trousers are making a return to the low-slung levels of the ‘00s. Want to get in on the trend? Go for cut-out dresses, barely-there bra tops and ultra-minis. From Magda Butrym to Prada, these brands are proving that in 2022, less is definitely more.

THE BRA TOP

A firm favourite of the fash pack, Prada’s barely-there bra top is a must-have for SS22. Fresh from its light denim outing in 2021, this year it’s been updated with the brand’s signature nylon. For day, double up nylon with their Re-Nylon joggers, and for night pair with their cult Drape Mini Skirt.

This is the year of the mini. Spotted on everyone from A-listers to the streetstyle set, it’s fast become one of the year’s defining trends. And Saint Laurent have gone hard with their take: iridescent, leather and shorter than short. Really, it’s the ultra-mini’s world, we’re just living in it.

This summer, we’re going low. Y2K style is owning 2022 denim, and Alexander Wang’s Hip Strap Jeans are the ultimate offering. The bejewelled logo straps hang on the hips, making them the perfect pair for your next night out. Just add heels, jewels and a baguette (bag).

We don’t like to pick favourites but when it comes to nailing the less is more trend, a cut-out dress is top of our list. And Johnathan Simkhai’s Aulora Mini is what dreams are made of. Reworking the classic shirt dress, the addition of a deep neckline and cut-outs keep things fresh, while the pop of orange feeds into fashion’s current trend for all things bright.

Showstopping, sunshine style? Jacquemus have you covered. In a delicious shade of hot pink, this mini dress features an exposed back, impossibly high leg slit and a draped fabric designed to cling to every part of the body. Think Carrie Bradshaw’s O.G. naked dress, levelled up for 2022.
