2022 might as well be dubbed the year of maximalism! There is no time for dull moments as the world finally opens the gates to a pandemic-free life. Now is the time to go all out in style not matter the occasion – here’s how, with examples from those who are doing it best!

Use Color

Rule number one when dressing the maximalist way: embrace color! The days of wearing just black and grey are over because color is about to become your best friend. Don’t be afraid to mix complementary colours together, Like Nicki Minaj in full lilac Marc Jacobs with pink accents!

Mix Patterns

What makes maximalism one of the funkiest fashion movements is the mix of print and patterns! While it may seem daunting at first, we suggest selecting motifs in the same colour family, and big patterns against smaller prints to start. When done to perfection, you’ll look as fresh as Muni Long styled by Manny Jay!

Add Texture

Experimenting with different textures helps in really keeping things interesting, both to the eye and to the touch! You can achieve this by adding a fur coat or leather jacket for instance. Savannah James wore a full Maison Margiela distressed denim look that took it to the next level!

Be Loud and Proud

To finish things off, confidence really is your best accessory with this one! Wear what you want, when you want, and don’t let it wear you! Teyana Taylor looked poised and comfy in DisneyLand wearing a Marc Jacobs sweats set in maximal style.
