Sneakers are our ride or die. There’s no other shoe that make us look as stylish – and comfortable – as the humble sneaker. With athleisure trends still going strong for 2022, it’s the perfect time to invest in a pair of stylish sneakers for your everyday closet. They’re the shoe that you’ll get the ultimate cost per wear from. Sneakers work for every season and every outfit – from a maxi dress to a pantsuit or a beach coverup.
Sneakers aren’t only for the weekend. We’re finding ourselves reaching for our sneakers now more than ever. The pandemic has made working remotely more popular, meaning most of us aren’t doing our daily commute. Most of us are trying to get out for the day on a so-called ‘rich mom walk’ or a ‘silly little walk’.
Whether you’re running errands, going to work, or taking a stroll, you want your sneakers to be comfortable without compromising on style. We’re sharing some of the most popular sneakers for 2022 that you can expect to see all over your Instagram feed in the coming weeks and months.
Everlane is the ultimate brand for basic – but versatile – pieces that you’ll wear every day. Their signature sneakers are designed to be worn every day. What we love about these sneakers is that they’re made using full-grain leather from a gold-certified tannery, meaning it has the lowest environmental impact of any leather shoe. These shoes are kind to your feet – and our planet.
You can never go wrong with a classic white sneaker. The ‘triple white’ colour is our favourite from Koio and sits at a mid-tier price point that gives you a splurge purchase without breaking the bank. These sneakers are handmade in Marche, Italy and are lined with recycled cotton-terry fabric for extra comfort.
Do you prefer a sneaker with a more activewear look? Check out this unisex style from APL Athletic. Their sleek silhouette and athleisure-inspired look makes them a more classic that will fit seamlessly into any closet. The ‘Streamline’ sneakers are lightweight and ideal for running – whether it’s errands or a 5k.
The sneakers include the brand’s ‘AeroLux’ ripstop for breathability and a chunky ‘FutureFoam’ sole for extra comfort. They also feature an innovative ‘souffle’ sockliner for extra security.
No list of stylish sneakers is complete without mentioning Nike. While the brand is famous for their running shoes, you’ll also find more wearable everyday styles. The ‘waffle racer crater’ are one of the most unique styles launched by the brand in recent years.
These mesh and suede sneakers use repurposed materials to create a sleek profile and a signature sole that gives you a smoother step and guarantees you a spot on the best dress list.
Do you feel like making a splurge purchase? Adidas and Prada are back for their second collaboration with these minimalistic sneakers. They’re inspired by the ‘America’s Cup’ sneakers once produced by Prada – but are made with neoprene and mesh to give them a futuristic look.
These sneakers are the perfect opportunity to get your hands on one of the most exciting footwear collaborations of recent seasons. They’re selling fast though, so grab them while you can!
Veja is one of the most talked about sneaker brands for 2022. If you’re looking for sustainable sneakers, you’ve come to the right place. Veja is committed to manufacturing their sneakers without harming the planet. The ‘Rio Branco’ style is made using their innovative Alveomesh fabric that is made using 100% recycled plastic bottles. The panels of the sneakers are made with water-repellent suede and leather, along with rubber soles that are sourced from the Amazon rainforest.
These sneakers are available in two neutral colour palettes and are part of a collaboration with Net-a-Porter for their ‘net sustain’ campaign.
We couldn’t finish off this list without mentioning a pair of New Balance sneakers. The brand is amongst the most recognisable in the world – and for good reason. The ‘574’ style was first introduced in 1988 and has been given a contemporary upgrade with TENCEL lyocell textile, chrome-free suede, and an EVA foam heel.

The beauty industry has been undergoing a major change in recent years. The pandemic saw us all wave ‘goodbye’ to a full-face of makeup with apps like TikTok becoming leaders in creating – and ending – beauty trends. Spotting trends early can help you see which products to add to your makeup bag and which viral content to look out for.
Fast forward to 2022 and it’s a mixture of low-key ‘natural’ makeup and all-out glittery eyeshadow. Whatever your makeup aesthetic is, you’re guaranteed to find a trend that will catch your eye. The beauty industry in 2022 is all about getting out of your comfort zone, trying something new, and being your most authentic self. It’s also about sticking to makeup trends that you enjoy by putting your self-care and wellness first.
The last year years have been stressful. After all, none of us expected to live through a pandemic. It’s easy to feel anxious, unsettled, and overwhelmed. With the uncertain world that we live in, self-care and wellness have never been more important. These trends are a lifestyle approach that we’re seeing across the industry. Whether it’s our skincare, eating habits, or the podcasts we’re listening to, we’re all trying to find ways to incorporate peace and tranquillity into our day.
Flat shoes are experiencing a major comeback in 2021, whether it’s the Birkenstocks or shearling slippers. Loafers are perhaps the most versatile style that you can add to your closet. They can take you from a day at the office to a trip to the theatre with your friends. If you’ve been scrolling through your Instagram feed over the last free months, you’ll see that influencers and celebrities are about the loafer shoes. They’re a timeless silhouette that works for any outfit.
