Sustainable Fall Fashion 2022
I finally succumbed to Covid this week. Yesterday was brutal. I really thought I was going to die. But thanks to cold medicine, pain killers, and lots of prayer, I am feeling a lot better today. With all this “free” time on my hands, it seemed like a good idea to share some of my fall fashion trend inspiration for 2022.
A few trends are sticking out to me this season:
- Y2K/early 2000s everything
- cowboy boots
- flare legs
- baggy jeans
- bright, warm colors
- low rise pants
- crop tops
Some of these I’m thrilled about. Others, not so much.
Though I love that the styles of my childhood are back in fashion, there is no way I am going to return to low rise jeans. They’re uncomfortable and unflattering on my mid-30s figure. However, I can get behind flare legs and baggy jeans, both staples of my preteen and teen years.
I would wear crop tops, but they’re not suitable to my profession as a clergy person. As a newly minted Texan, I’m slightly amused that cowboy boots are in again. I was already planning on buying a pair, so this is ideal.
And, finally, I’m glad that bright warm tones are joining cool tones this season. Lime green looks terrible on me, but I love warm oranges, pinks, and greens.
Here’s what’s on my list…
My Picks for Fall 2022
Sustainability, for me, encompasses both the ethics and environmental impact of production AND the usefulness of the product. I will shop from conventional brands when the style, fit, and fabric is more suitable to me. I do this because it keeps me from over-shopping and returning lots of things, which will likely end up in the landfill.

3 | Super Wide Leg Jeans
These Madewell super wide leg jeans remind me of my favorite jeans in the 4th grade. Very 1999. To get the look right, they really must be full length. I will likely wait to purchase until Madewell comes out with a curvy fit in this style (fingers crossed). Madewell uses Better Cotton Initiative cotton.
5 | Ballet Flats
Another staple of the aughts, ballet flats are in for fall. I had a different pair of Everlane flats in my cart for more than a year, but it seems that they’ve sold out. This more classic pair comes in a warm, avocado green that would work wonderfully with my clothing colors.
My style has skewed much more toward interesting pants and shoes lately, because I wear a clergy shirt and collar most days of the week. I also like dresses and less-fitted tops to wear over my clergy shirt. It’s weird trying to adjust personal style to a uniform. But it’s also kind of fun.
It has definitely reduced my “need” to shop.
What trends and styles are you looking forward to this fall?
