Psychedelic Fashion in 2022. The 70’s are all about Psychedelic Swirls
As Teeanime moves through 2022, it’s possible that everything feels a little bit 2020. Which is maybe not surprising given that the last two years have been spent primarily indoors and dressed in unremarkable swaddling, stretchy products. But for those who are ready to fully embrace it, there is joy on the horizon in the form of psychedelic swirls, which have recently swirled their way onto every manner of clothing.
The now-viral pale green Hockney dress by London label House of Sunny showcases 70s-inspired swirls that don’t sacrifice comfort. For Baltic weather, wear twirly dresses, jumpers, and coats.
This pattern is serious. If you’re worried about wearing a psychedelic swirled garment, opt for a retro-inspired throw-on-and-go dress. Combine with your favorite denim and cowboy boots for a global-twirling appearance.
1. Kai Collective Gaia long-sleeved top
What Kai Collective doesn’t know about second skin-style clothing isn’t worth knowing, to be honest. For a very cool twirly spin on the trend, wear this jewel-toned garment with black high-waisted jeans and a pair of blindingly fresh sneakers.
2. Never Fully Dressed Happy Place midi dress
A wrap dress solves a plethora of stylistic problems. Pair with knee-high boots for a day-to-night look, and platform espadrilles for when the weather finally decides to warm up.
3. Kitri Anika malachite print trousers
Kitri’s emerald-toned pair of swirly trousers are perfect for anybody looking to add a touch of sartorial jazz hands to their transitional outfits. Wear with a jumper by day and a fitted T-shirt by night.
4. Urban Outfitters Audre psychedelic swirl dress
Easy-peasy slip dresses don’t come any easier than this swirling Urban Outfitters retro-inspired slip dress, which can be worn over a T-shirt to dress it down, or with a micro mule to dress it up.
5. House of Sunny Land Cruise Hockney dress
House of Sunny’s viral Hockney dress has been reimagined into a long-sleeved knitted iteration of its former self. Choose from lime green or bold blue in the new interpretations of the twirling dress.
6. The Elder Statesman swirl cashmere jumper
The Elder Statesman makes some of the best knitwear in the game, and this pink and green jumper is proof. Keep it slightly oversized and clash with even slouchier jeans for a decidedly en vogue off-duty look.
7. Monki patterned faux fur coat
Monki’s green statement-making coat has been spotted on all of the key players in the street style set, and the appeal is clear: it’s bright, bold and seriously cool.
8. River Island black psychedelic dress
Throw a chunky jumper to make this dress work for daytime, or wear with a minimal mule for evening time, but either way: this swirly dress is a real winner.
9. Warehouse abstract psychedelic dress
With a floaty silhouette, Warehouse’s abstract psychedelic dress is the perfect entrée to the trend for anybody looking to try it.
