Japanese Fashion Trends For 2022

By Devy Jan 19, 2022

It’s the Year of The Tiger, and a new energy is already on its way to the world of Japanese fashion! This is the right time to be courageous, fearless, and spunky, and to show it all off through your daily look!

Channeling Fierce Energy in 2022 Japanese Fashion Trends

2022, and Tiger energy, is all about being fierce, daring, and fearless, all with a touch of calm. 

In this article, we have put together some of the best 2022 fashion trends to keep you up to date with the latest fashion in Japan. 

1. Printed Tiger Patterns Will Help You Hype Up the Year of Tiger

The first thing that we have seen most clothing lines give us this year is tiger-print, preparing us with the energy of 2022. 

Combining black and orange with brighter colors like pink can accentuate tiger-print patterns with a bold look.

Once you are in tiger-print, you will catch the attention of people around you and look fierce, standing out from the rest. 

However, if you’re not used to a striking pattern like this, you can try and combine it with something more muted like a basic t-shirt or a plain knitted skirt.

2. Noisy Shirts

One of the Japanese fashion trends for this year is the oversized white shirt with noisy printed images. 

Walking down the street with a loud printed shirt is not only a way to show your respect for a designer or artist’s work but also a great way to catch people’s attention at the same time. 

The best match for these loud shirts is high-rise ripped jeans with ankle-cut Chelsea boots for a fierce and confident look. 

3. Brightly-Colored Tweed Heels

Even though vibrant shoes have already been on trend for years, 2022 is giving you another way of wearing them: covered in tweed! 

You may have already seen many clothing lines selling brightly-colored textured heels, and fashion bloggers have also been promoting this 2022 trend.

Tweed heels reflect elegance and serenity that emits a classy aura. Tweed heels in bright colors are best worn during special occasions and clients’ appointments. 

4. Back to Loafers

Another trend for 2022 is taking back your loafers out from the wardrobe and combining them with other trendy items for a serious but bold look.

Bright-colored satin shirts with trousers and loafers will always be the best combination for the office. However, let’s make it louder with a big pearl or floral pattern! 

Black loafers with large flower decorations are a must-have item this year. Even though they are still hard to find in the market, you will definitely be super trendy with this unique item. 

5. Layered Necklaces

Moving on to accessories. Layered necklaces are one of the best things of 2021 and look like they’ll be making a comeback in 2022. 

One necklace is boring, so it’s time to move on to layering three different types of necklaces!

A combination of a pearl necklace, choker, and chain will become your go-to as they match any type of outfit. Chains and pearl necklaces are the combo of the year. The excellent combination matches a 1950s vibe with a modern chain to create a classy and modern-classic look. 

One of my favorite online marketplaces for buying stacked necklaces in Japan is Shein.com, where you can pick several necklaces that suit you from a wide selection of choices. 

6. Mobile Phone Bag

The next item is the mobile phone bag. The concept of simplicity and uniqueness are the main features of this portable phone bag idea. Famous designers and brands have jumped on the wagon and tried to sell their signature mobile phone bags. 

In 2021, Loewe launched their signature elephant mobile bag, which immediately saw a boom in popularity worldwide. 

Beginning as a cute bag for your phone, the mobile phone bag suddenly became a trend at the end of 2021 and is expected to keep growing in 2022. 

The concept of a mobile phone bag is to carry only phone and credit cards. However, the long strap makes it very easy to match with any of your outfits. Stay stylish but keep it simple! 

7. Wolf Cut

Going with a boyish look, a wolf cut is a must for this year’s hairstyles. 

The concept is to have hair shortened around the front with the back left long. The wolf-cut cut is great for those who want give off a  strong impression and move away from more boring syles. 

A few tips, dye your hair dark to highlight bold fierceness! 

8. New Ways to Style Your Bangs 

In 2022, keeping your bangs aside will be the new move towards making your everyday life more stylish, and this year, people are growing out their bangs and pushing them away from their faces for a fresh, completely new look.

In Japan, it is very common to see people rocking bangs with a wavy brown perm. 

If you have been rocking bangs for a while and would like to try something new, you can also cut your bangs irregularly to give your hair a stylish messy effect that is also in-trend in 2022. 

Are You Ready to For A New Look and To Be Part of 2022’s Japanese Fashion Trends? 

Seeing all of the movements towards the trends for the year ahead, people are more likely to try new things and create a fiercer version of themselves this year in keeping with the Year of the Tiger. 

Be part of the trends in Japan for 2022, and don’t miss the chance to show off a more confident personality along with your best look for the year!
