Gen-Z has always stood out for being the generation to break away from the traditional norms and keep individuality at the centre. This philosophy is also reflected in their fashion choices. With Gen-Z style icons such as Jaden Smith and Billie Eilish shaping up future trends, in 2022, Gen-Z is sure to step out in some of the most unique fashion trends we expect to rise.

Bindiya Bhatt, Director - Category, at Myntra, shares some of the most promising trends that we expect Gen Z to flaunt in 2022.


Experiments in Color: Gen-Z is more open to experimentation with the colours that they pair. They aren't afraid of mixing and matching colours that aren't conventionally worn together to create a unique ensemble that is fashionable and comfortable. Want to don a pair of pink trousers with a bright orange cardigan? Gen-Z wouldn't shy away from that, and neither should you!

Turning back to the 90s: Fashion trends come in strong, disappear and then resurface again, and right now, Gen-Z is experiencing all the 90s fashion trends that Millenials swore they would leave behind. With the revival of cut-outs, asymmetric slits, sparkly butterfly clips, tinted sunglasses and skinny baguette bags taking centre stage, Gen-Z is living out the 90s fashion dream, of course, made popular by their unique way popular global trend-setters.

Going Fluid: Gen-Z has a more fluid approach to gender than the previous generations, as cultural norms shift and gender fluidity becomes a more recognised concept. Hence this cohort never shies away from flaunting fashion in any way they see fit. Gender-neutral clothing has been gaining popularity over the past few months, and we expect to see significantly more of this trend in 2022. With global brands already hopping onto the gender-neutral wagon, we can expect more brands to join the gender-neutral hype train in the coming year.

Being the Punk Academic: Punk Academia is one of the newer trends that fashion enthusiasts never imagined Gen-Z would bring about; however, with popular celebrities the signature punk academic looks, it is no surprise that it is a hit among the Gen-Z. From tartan miniskirts and oversized mohair sweaters to fitted corsets and bodycon tops, this trend surely is a good mix of two opposite worlds.

The Comfy Way: Gen-Z has a strong preference for comfortable clothing, especially with work from home culture and post-pandemic norms. What's ruling the trend and have become the standard uniform in every Gen-Z's closet are silhouettes, comfort sleepsuits, stay at home looks, and athleisure, for being super comfortable yet stylish and chic. From leggings and bike shorts to oversized jumpers and track pants, Gen Z has found these particular pieces of clothing acceptable for just about any occasion.

Gen-Z is all about self-expression and individuality. Their shopping habits, especially on a platform like Myntra, with a dedicated section for them, called 'Style Cast', catering to their specific needs, reflect this in many ways. With a generation that thrives on the idea of acceptance and self-expression, there is no doubt that their fashion trends will keep evolving and changing to be more inclusive, unique and bold in every way.

Not only has the Queen of England long been a visitor to the racing at Ascot but she's also had the honour of having a winner of her own at the meeting.

Now we're into 2022, the anticipation for a new racing season is hotting up even more.

By the time the world focuses its gaze on Ascot in mid-June, records will have been broken, and new winners will have been celebrated in the other meetings such as the Grand National. However, there's nothing quite like the Royal Ascot meeting and the historic Ascot Gold Cup race, which has been running since 1807. The race is the first leg of the triple crown of thoroughbred racing in the UK, making it one of the most important on the racing calendar.

The meeting is held at the course, which is just 28 miles west of London and only a few miles from the residence of the British Royal Family, Windsor Castle. It's also been an event that the monarchy of Britain has often visited and had a personal interest in. Not only has the Queen of England long been a visitor to the racing at Ascot but she's also had the honour of having a winner of her own at the meeting as noted by Town & Country. Will there be another Royal victory this year? Let's look at some of the favourites for the headline race, the Gold Cup.

Trueshan

The six-year-old gelding's pedigree means he's a real threat to all his other riders at Ascot this year. Trueshan has previous experience of winning the course; he won in 2020 at the British Champions Long Distance Cup, with his jockey Hollie Doyle commenting, 'he went through the ground like a tractor, he loved it.' Going into 2021, he was much fancied after looking strong in the lead up to the meeting but was pulled when his trainer Alan King deemed the ground to be too firm. He had a successful season, winning the Goodwood Cup and the Prix Du Cadran in France in October. So he's in fine fettle going into 2022, does that mean it's finally his year to taste Gold Cup success?


Stradivarius

The Irish thoroughbred has become a name synonymous with Royal Ascot over the past few years with a record that's the envy of many a trainer, and this year, the target is to equal a record set by one of the greats of racing. Ridden by Frankie Dettori, Stradivarius has won three of the last four Gold Cups and is already second favourite in the Coral Gold Cup markets for a fourth. Four wins at the Gold Cup is a feat that has only been achieved once before by Yeats, a fellow Irish thoroughbred. Although last year wasn't to end with the record-equalling run he was aiming for; he's keen to be back this year as his owner, Bjorn Nielsen, says he can't wait: "He's as enthusiastic as ever, which is quite amazing."

Subjectivist

Last year's winner of the Ascot Gold Cup is again in the frame for a win; last year, with veteran jockey Joe Fanning in charge, Subjectivist ran the perfect race, by first maintaining pace with the leading pack going into the final corner before striding majestically to a win, leaving the likes of Stradivarius in his wake, and adding to his win in the Dubai Gold Cup earlier in the year. Fanning wasn't surprised by the success as the four-year-old got on with the job at hand. "I just find he's a horse you don't complicate things with; if there's something in front, let him go," he said.

Eating seasonal food decreases the demand of out-of-season produce, increases the consumption of local farming

By IANSlife

To meet our dietary needs, nutritionists throughout the country have begun looking at substances accessible in India. They're looking at ancient wisdom and seasonal local possibilities, which is unsurprising. These solutions are not only environmentally friendly, but they also help the local economy!

"Each season offers an array of gorgeous fresh vegetables, each rich in nutrients, antioxidants, and phytonutrients in their own way," explains Dr. Rajyalakshmi Devi of Lovlife Hospital. Furthermore, the climate provided by each season makes seasonal produce easily edible and absorbable by our bodies."
