With the new year approaching, it's time to say goodbye to last season's items and start shopping for 2022. While some pieces from 2021 have definitely become staples in our closet (ahem, black leather jacket), we cant wait to see what the new year has in store for us. Here are the fashion trend predictions that we think will be all the rage.

Corset Tops: not only are can they range from making you look cute to sexy, but they also make you look snatched! A win-win situation. Pair with a cute black skirt or leather jeans, or even on top of a dress, and all eyes are sure to be on you. While many have started rocking corsets this year, we predict this trend is here to stay. So hurry up and get shopping! Some corset tops can be found at Urban Outfitters, Acne Studios, and ASOS.

Up next, we have catsuits! Yup, you heard that right. Why waste so much time staring at your closet, deciding what matches with what, when instead you can just throw on a catsuit? It's like a dress - so easy to style - but because of its bodycon aspect, it takes your outfit to a whole new level. The catsuit comes in various options, long or short sleeves, long pants, or biker shorts. Throw on a good jacket, and the outfit is complete.

Tiny handbags have already been a trend, but we're guessing bright, colorful ones are joining in on the fun come 2022. They can add a pop of color to any plain fit. While we're on the subject of accessories, chandelier earrings are back in style. Move on over gold hoop earrings because this year, we'll be wearing dangly chains on our ears.

Picture this: you just bought a new cute top (maybe a corset...) and are ready to hit the town when you realize you have no idea how to style it! Don't worry, because we know exactly what you need to get: mini skirts. Yes, the Y2K fashion trends continue to make a comeback. Shop at Zara, Pretty Little Thing, or Revolve.

How these pieces are styled will vary from person to person, but these items are predicted to be big this year. Happy shopping and happy new year!
