When we were planning the Spring 2022 Issue of The Turquoise Iris Journal, our founder Dionne Woods knew she wanted to contribute one crucial feature: her hand-painted tulle skirts. She’d been experimenting with them since December of 2021 and fell in love with the challenge and creativity that comes from painting on such a nebulous material. Even better? This art is wearable! It’s been just over a month since we released our spring issue and, SURPRISE, tulle skirts are making a huge comeback! What can we say? Our fearless leader has always been a trendsetter and here are her favorite trends in summer outfits for 2022!
Did you guess that Dionne would put tulle skirts at the top of the “summer outfits for 2022” inspiration list? You’re right! Tulle skirts have been popping up everywhere from runways to retreats answer love the fun and femininity they bring to any outfit!
Pair them with a sleek top and heels for a night out or dress them down with a graphic tee and your favorite sneakers for brunch with your best friends.
Personalized & DIY Accessories
Dionne also predicts a big increase in personalized and DIY accessories. For example, Dionne’s line of hand-painted hats sells out every time she drops a new collection! People love one-of-a-kind items.
Another reason this trend will be huge? It’s an easy way for anyone to get the feel of a limited-edition designer piece without the price tag. Plus, the only thing cooler than saying, “Thanks, it’s one-of-a-kind!” when someone compliments your outfit is the opportunity to respond with, “Thanks, I made it myself!” Talk about a 2-for-1!
Dopamine dressing is really hitting its stride! The neons that carried us through winter and spring will soften into softer, sunny shades that show up in surprising places.
We’ll even be featuring an exclusive look at the process behind her hand-painted wedding dress & bridal party pieces!!!!
