What Your Wardrobe Is Missing For 2022

Fashion has been taken on a whirlwind of a journey throughout the last two years. Trends including comfy and fashionable loungewear became all the rage, and on the opposite end of the spectrum vivid colours and patterns were ultra popular as a reflection of the overall feeling of optimism post lockdowns.

With so many colours, textures and styles to choose from - it can be a bit overwhelming knowing what this year of fashion will bring and how you can get your wardrobe ready!

So how can you kick start the new year in style? Some out with the old and in with the new? We’ve put together a list of our favourite essential items you are missing from your wardrobe which we expect will be bigger and more popular than ever in 2022.

Easy Breezy Linen Dresses

While it’s still hot get yourself that perfect casual throw on! Linen frocks are a great option that allows for comfortable, casual yet fashionable outfit. Most importantly, breathable and long lasting. The perfect solution if you quickly have to duck to the shops, head for brunch or go to the beach of course.

Be sure to check out our Elk Colino Dress online and come in store to try on!

Flowy Maxi

The maxi skirt is a modern wardrobe staple and is expected to be popular all year for 2022. This timeless clothing piece is perfect to have on hand for any occasion. Wear with a t-shirt for a casual paired down look, some boots and a jacket for dinner. Perfect to even dress up with a blouse and flats for a more thoughtful workpiece. Maxi skirts are so versatile and available in so many options - style potential is limitless.

Interested in maxi skirts with colour? Some of our current favourites and latest arrivals available in store are the yellow Floral Maxi Skirt and the Others Sunray Pleat Skirt. These brighter than life yellow skirts are the perfect option for a splash of colour.


Checkered Patterned Tops and Dresses

Checkers are continuing to be revisited in design and remain a favourite print. This vintage inspired box pattern style is the perfect option for that casual look around the house or to the local cafe.

What we love about this style is it’s nostalgia old-school plaid meets summer-ready chic. Because who doesn’t love the best of bringing old styles and trends back to life! While some trends fade fast, rest assured checkers will never be out of fashion!

Basic Neutrals

Adding neutral pieces is the best way to creating a versatile wardrobe. You simply cannot go wrong!

What we love about basics is you can create just about any look and feel comfortable doing so. From easy casual to stylish elegance, neutrals are the best place to start. They allow you the opportunity to dress up or down in class.

Invest in high quality basics by shopping for the right brands. Little Cactus have a variety of womens clothing labels - be sure to check out our womens tops with brands including Eb & Ive, Elk and more.

The Fitted Blazer

This one is for the modern women! Nothing says put together like a fitted blazer. Blazers have been added to the list of wardrobe essentials for 2022. With the increasing move back into the office this staple piece is a must have.

Blazers offer the opportunity to dress up or feel more put together without having to go overboard. They are the perfect chic option for the working woman or female entrepreneur; just tying in a stylish yet business appropriate outfit perfectly together. If you don’t like overdoing it a blazer with a pair of jeans and a tshirt is the perfect casual but smart style.

The Others Fitted Blazer is an absolute favourite of ours. It’s our get the job done but look cute doing it jacket.

Casual Slides

They’re funky, they’re comfy and they do the job!

Casual slides have become a wardrobe must have and for good reason. Slides are ultra trendy. They’re the shoe you can’t wait to slip right into after a long day in heels, a hard day in boots or a sore day in too squishy ballet flats.

What we love about them is they’re a non fuss, straight to the point footwear option for those people who love when convenience meets comfort. They’re also super popular with celebrities often rocking the sock and slide look...who would’ve thought!

Our Moses Slides are especially popular at the moment - perfect for any casual occasion and oh so comfortable.
