Special summer: What are the trends dresses summer 2022? 

Spotted many times in the spring-summer 2022 collections, the cut out dress rises to the top of the key trends

of the summer, as well as the transparent dress, already adopted by Emily Ratajkowski or Rihanna. And because

the style of the 2000’s is in the forefront of the fashion scene, we are also witnessing the reappearance of

the naked dress – with clean lines and minimalist cuts – in our wardrobes.
