Suddenly, This Cool Dress Trend Is Popping Up All Over the Place

This is the hottest dress trend of 2022, hands down. 

Animal prints make a comeback every few years, but right now, zebra print is really having a moment.  Over the past few weeks, this pattern has popped up all over our Instagram feeds and the new-in sections of our favourite brands, solidifying its trending status.

Once you’re aware of this, you’ll start noticing that this pattern is currently taking over everything: dresses, accessories, shoes and even jewellery. But the easiest way to add this style to your wardrobe, and make the most of it, is through a brilliant zebra-print dress—and we’ve tracked down a great selection for you to choose from. 

This trend is so easy to style. For daytime, just add a basket bag and sandals. 

Dresses make up the backbone of our editors’ wardrobes, and there’s good reason for it. Ease of styling comes to mind, as a full outfit just requires some shoes and a killer bag. What’s more, there’s plenty of variation in dress designs, from maxi to mini hem lengths, with exaggerated puff sleeves or thin tie straps, in skin-tight forms or billowing oversized shapes. All in all, opting for a dress is an easy and versatile way to take on new trends. 

Zebra print isn’t just a daytime pattern. 

Fashion aficionados will remember the time when everyone and their sister owned that Réalisation leopard-print skirt, or at least an inspired version of it. The 2022 version seems to be a zebra-print dress, and we don’t see it going anywhere anytime soon.
