This year's spring/summer trends look to introduce bold displays of color and light. Many of these bright trends find their roots in African clothing and African women. From vibrant colors to the iconic statement prints, African inspiration has been everywhere. In this article, we will go through all of the hottest looks of the Spring Summer 2022 runways and the African designers that can help you keep on trend this season.

Back to the office look

In a post-pandemic world, we are now moving away from at-home working. The days of zoom calls in sweats will soon be a distant memory. This has meant there has been a huge focus on fashionable workwear for the unified return to the workplace of recent months.

If we have taken one thing from working at home, it is that we want to be comfortable while working. But this doesn't mean we can't be fashionable. In the height of summer fashion, staying cool is vital. Spring Summer 2022 trends have seen a return to modern tailoring.

The Kitou trousers are perfect additions to any workplace outfit, defining smart casual and the new back-to-work style. Crafted in navy, minimal style ensures they remain a classic staple in your work wardrobe.

Pair them with the Eliza silk blouse for a pop of bright colour and nod to African style. The Eliza multi-colored African print blouse is made unique with the addition of a pussy-bow that finishes off the perfect office outfit. For another bright blouse option, add the Adeline blouse to your wardrobe. This blouse incorporates tones of green and yellow, with another fashionable tie detail at the neck.

Sometimes trousers can feel restrictive and hot during peak summer. In this case, you could opt for a smart skirt, the Mariam skirtis a timeless investment that will be your go-to accompaniment to countless outfits in the years to come.

Versatile African dresses

No spring-summer trend would be complete without dresses. You will never go wrong with Sika'a African dresses that offer practical pieces that are suitable for every occasion.

They will take you from meetings at the office to after-work dinner with friends. Dresses are one of the most comfortable outfits for hot weather. They allow the breathability that is key to any summer outfit.

Bold, bright colours were hot on the runway this SS. There was never more reason to tap into a vibrant, African wardrobe. For ultimate summer comfort opt for the Esme maxi dress. This beautiful and flowy dress is the only outfit needed for outdoor summer parties or days spent lounging in the garden.

The blue and white paisley print is a timeless addition to your summer wardrobe. For more fitted summer dresses, look no further than the Nabelung dress.

Fitted dresses are more suited to formal occasions or evenings out. The Nabelung African print dress is washed with bold tones of yellow and red that contrast beautifully. Another option would be the Serita African print dress. The pop of bright yellow you get from this dress is sure to illuminate any room on those dinners out with friends.

When the sun goes down a night, things can get pretty chilly. You need an on-trend outfit that carries through cold nights and remains bright and vibrant. The perfect outfit for any night out is a statement dress to make you stand out from the crowd. The Vinyago cape dressadds an element of class and sophistication not typically found with dresses.

Keep up with the bold statements trend with the Sika'a Imani silk shirt dress and the bright and beautiful Buea African print dress. If dresses just aren't your thing, a jumpsuit is a great alternative. The Sika'a Sakinah jumpsuitand its colourful statement design will have you the talk of any party.

An array of African colours

This spring and summer 2022 colour trends season will allow you to dive headfirst into the African paint pallet. Vibrant, statement colours have graced nearly every designer SS22 runway. Fashion is awash with flashes of tangerines, turquoise, plum and fuchsia. These bright colours are not only cheerful but mirror the colours produced within nature in the spring and summer months.

You will never find a range of clothing as vibrant and in touch with African style as Sika'a. Our shirt dresses are perfect for a hot summer day, and all come with statement designs and bright patterns. The Kaziah African print dress mimics the colours of a beautiful sunset and is ideal for any summer occasion. Our Rikiatou African Print dress takes a brighter, fresher approach.

This dress is the perfect outfit to add a splash of colour to daytimes events. Continue to brighten up the world around you with African prints in the Azariah African dress. This is another dress that will make those special occasions even more special.

For a dress alternative, you can't go wrong with a playsuit. Playsuits are less formal than jumpsuits and also less restrictive. They are ideal for casual daytime spring and summer events with friends and family. The Sika'a African print Tatue playsuit is the ultimate statement outfit. With bold, African printing washed with tones of Fuschia, everyone will be asking where you got your outfit from.

African shirts

A classic button-up shirt is the ultimate spring and summer ally. Shirts allow for a cool, classic style that is practical (and fashionable) on hot days.

They can be styled on their own, or worn as a jacket hybrid for days that are chillier. This is a great option for evening events when you don't want to carry heavy coats. African shirts with their loud, statement style are a go-to classic. They add life to any outfit and can be styled endlessly for all and every occasion.

Sika'a offers the only range of African shirts you need. No matter what your occasion, we have you covered with the ultimate outfit. Style our Saadah shirt for a meal with friends. The bright poppy print makes this shirt pop when paired with any trousers or skirt.

For a more minimal approach, our Mariam shirt is a must. This cropped, navy shirt is perfect for those office days that turn into evenings out. Nothing will give you a more put-together and stylish look.

If you really want to make a statement, you have to pick up the Elanaga African print tie shirt. This shirt defines bright and bold African fashion. This short-sleeved, tie-waist shirt is covered in statement green and purple print that will catch everyone's eye. There is no party or event where the Elanaga shirt won't steal the show.

If spring summer 2022 trends have taught us one thing, it's that African style truly never goes out of fashion. The vibrant and bold clothing at the very heart of African fashion is the only style you need to get you through summer and spring this year.
