This season, Sika'a presents a rainbow of evocative African prints in high vibration summer colours for every imaginable mood. Fashion colour trends 2022 are dominated by six major players; Very Peri, Canary Yellow, Hot Pink, Salted Caramel, Sky Blue and Scarlet. Our spring fashion collection captures the current mood with a luxe sense of nature-nourishing shades and dopamine-boosting brights. Celebrate the universal language of colour with Sika'a and pepper your wardrobe with these rich and vibrant hues.

Very Peri

Swiftly setting the trend forecast for runway-ready fashion, the colour of the year from Pantone is Very Peri. A red/violet hue with cool blue undertones, Pantone 2022 Very Peri exudes confidence and creativity. As we emerge from the pandemic and start rewriting our lives, this quixotic shade matches spring’s dynamic mood. At Sika’a, our African spring fashion collection features subtle hints of this versatile violet shade.

Playing well with the Very Peri 2022 colour trend, watercolour floral motifs dance across the Makenene Poppies-Print Stand Collar Crepe De Chine Midi Dress. The softest nod to periwinkle, this dreamy abstract print is inspired by African wildflowers and its swish-worthy skirt offers beautiful movement as you walk.

Vivid violet hues peek through the patterns of the Bamena Floral African Print Draped Bustier Top for a sophisticated spin on Very Peri. Pair it with form-fitting leggings for summer soirées and straight fit jeans for those carefree and colourful events.

Canary Yellow

Dress like the sunshine in canary yellow and embrace one of the hottest colours for spring. In Africa, this zingy shade symbolises optimism and rebirth. At Sika'a, it's easy to get summer colour ready with our contemporary take on luscious lemon tones.

The Sakinah Jumpsuit is what fashion fairytales are made of. Loose and unstructured, what appears to be a beautiful flowing dress is actually a chic jumpsuit. Pair its pops of yellow with violet heels for a striking look that nails the colour trends for 2022.

Want to create multiple spring outfits with impeccably cut separates? Our Bisi Silk Blouse and Ayoola Wide Leg Trousers come in the same African print as the Sakinah Jumpsuit. A fun and frothy dream team, you can slip into the silk trousers with a white tank top, team the blouse with ecru jeans or wear the set together for an effortless spring co-ord.

The Serita Dress, cut from breathable African soft cotton, reflects the freshness of summer with intensely saturated colours. Sika’a’s rich and vibrant African print dresses are a joy to wear and nothing transports you faster to the African continent than Serita’s tangy chartreuse shades. Style yours with heels for a sassy vibe.

Hot Pink

Forget blush, rose and pale pastels, this year it's hot pink that is shaking up the SS22 catwalks. Naomi Campbell sashayed down the runway in an electrifying hot pink suit whilst Anok Yai stole the show at May’s Met Gala in a flush of fuchsia. Irresistibly frivolous, hot pink looks magical paired with crisp whites and magnetic teamed with navy.

Get the look with the Enitan Maxi Skirt in an exotic shade of hot pink. With an ultra-feminine, voluminous skirt and tummy-toning high waist, Enitan embodies the spirit of African print fashion. Wear it with a form-fitting white shirt for far-flung destination weddings or with a navy tank top for captivating holiday style.

Move confidently and comfortably into the spring season with the hot pink Tatue Playsuit. Unequivocally kittenish, Tatue taps into all the colours of the season, seamlessly blending them together for an exuberant take on African fashion.

Salted Caramel

Spring fashion trends are seeing beige tones getting a richer and deeper update. Salted caramel, a deliciously warm toffee hue, is fast becoming the new neutral.

In buttery shades inspired by the desert, the Careme Maxi Dress instantly gives you that salted caramel vibe. African blooms and a mermaid-style cut are made for those rising temperatures. Wedge heels in emerald green will dial up the glamour whilst gold sandals and an arm cuff keep the look daytime fresh.

Sky Blue

Inspired by Africa’s azure waters and endless cerulean horizons, sky blue is set to be the summer colour of choice. It’s these lighter shades of blue that feel refreshing, spiritual and cool.

A combination of sky blue and subtropical green, the Buea Dress captures all the beauty of summer. In a luxe African wax print, the breezy sleeves and free-flowing skirt of this wow-factor piece will take you from sun-kissed lunch dates to weekend city escapes.

Embrace the eclectic spirit of African pattern with the Kamila Kaftan. Step away from the ordinary with nuances of sky blue, admiral blue and zesty lime. Cut from breathable cotton, the body-skimming Kamila is designed to keep you feeling crisp and cool. Throw over a blazer for stand-out workwear. Accessorise with a raffia bag for vacation-ready style. Or amp up the glamour with sky-high heels.


Scene-stealing scarlet is poised to make spring outfits stand out. A wonderfully wearable colour, ravishing rouge speaks to Africa with its bold character and warm glow.

Modern maximalism calls for our Sika'a African Print Floral Detail Sleeveless Maxi Dress. In a stunning shade of scarlet, it's ready to transport you to the dreamy depths of the jungle with a sensual silhouette and adventurous floral print. Reach for this stunning dress when you want to capture all the elements of joy, fantasy and escapism through fashion.

Prefer a gentle dip into the scarlet trend? The sunset hues of our Kaziah Shirt Dress artfully celebrate the energy of Africa. A universally flattering fit, Kaziah has you looking polished in a pinch. Its rusty tones are the all-in-one answer to bold and beautiful 2022 fashion colour trends.

Our focus at Sika'a is to always offer African fashion that's infused with extraordinary colour. Combining the hottest colours in fashion with spectacular African prints, this season is all about wanderlust-worthy style.
