The new year is here, and so is pre-fall fashion. 2022 has lots coming our way when it comes to style - from nostalgic pieces with a new twist to completely fresh trends. We've looked at fashion powerhouses' pre-fall collections and rounded up some of the top trends coming our way. From denim-filled looks to cut-out madness, here's everything you need to know.

If you thought the denim revolution was already here, think again - the pre-fall collections are bringing us more denim, and it's better and bigger than ever, literally. From Diesel to Balenciaga, fashion houses are loving the oversized denim look right now. Other brands are using different fabrics to create a denim-inspired look with a comfortable twist. The point is: keep those Canadian tuxedos out because the trend is far from gone this pre-fall season. Another trend coming in hot - and one of our favorite on this list - is the cut-out look. The little black dress gets a glow-up this year with slashed-up designs, with celebs like Dua Lipa absolutely rocking this trend.

And dresses aren't the only thing getting cut up for a sexier and more firey feel; cut-out jumpsuits are set to be all the rage, as well. And, naturally, 2022 will also bring us lots of fun textures. The fuzzy, fluffy, and feathery trend is only getting hotter: from furry jackets to velvet pants and feathery jackets, the latest collections will have us feeling absolutely fabulous. We're talking funky glam - no color or texture is off-limits. And we're not talking fun colors only when the texture is unique - bright colors are a go-to no matter the outfit this pre-fall.

Thanks to the pandemic, the past two years have been tough on all of us, and that might be why fashion collections are gravitating toward bright colors more than ever. This aesthetic elevates our moods and keeps us looking fearlessly cool. From the always-colorful Moschino to Tory Burch, plenty of brands are jumping on the rainbow-filled bandwagon.

Basically, we have plenty of groovy trends coming our way, so there's never been a better time for some retail therapy.
