What wild interpretation of clothing will she be wearing this time? A micro mini with dangerously high platforms? Something that flashes her belly button ring or throws it back to a past decade? With a bit of creativity from her stylist, Lorenzo Posocco, and an enviable amount of confidence, Lipa can pull off just about anything. And in 2022, we'd go as far as to say the singer basically invented — or, at least pioneered — 10 fashion trends that later began popping up everywhere. Instagram @dualipa/ Amanda Lauro Ahead, we're rounding up Lipa's best looks of the year. Were some of them slightly outrageous? Sure. But we would raid this girl's closet in a heartbeat? Absolutely. And we can't wait to see what she'll be stepping out in come 2023. Dua Lipa Wore the Going-Out Version of Every It Girl's Favorite Jacket Chainmail Instagram @dualipa Leave it to Lipa to always be ahead of the curve. The style icon started the year in a see-through chainmail skirt, and we're ending it wanting to stock up on this bold trend after seeing it everywhere. Everyday Sheer Getty Images Back in August, Lipa broke a major wedding fashion rule: Wearing white for someone else's big day. We're assuming she got the stamp of approval from fashion designer Simon Porte Jacquemus and his husband, Marco Maestri, who were saying "I do" in Charleval, France. Either way, the look taught us to coordinate our sheer pieces with whatever undergarments we have underneath, helping to keep things sleek, subtle, and elevated enough for whatever we have planned. What to Wear Under Sheer Clothing, According to a Celebrity Stylist Y2K Everything Instagram @dualipa While Lipa could have gone full Regencycore with this lace-up corset, she brought it back to the early '00s instead, pairing it with chap-like pants (hello, Christina Aguilera?!) and a visible belly ring. Quite the pop princess move. 9 Ways to Wear a Corset Top Sexy Athleisure Getty Images Instead of pairing this ruched, neon mini dress with platform heels or thigh-high boots, the Puma partner completed her look with sporty sneakers, showing us that sexy and comfortable aren't mutually exclusive. Denim Footwear Instagram @dualipa Speaking of shoes, Dua doesn't shy away from wearing her fair share of daring designs. While prepping for her show in London, the singer traded basic jeans for denim thigh-high boots, balancing out the look with a slinky slip dress and an oversized jacket. Low-Rise Jeans Instagram @dualipa It can be hard to keep up with ever-changing pants trends, but Lipa has given low-rise styles her stamp of approval on more than one occasion and even let her lacy underwear stand out while wearing them. How to Style Mom Jeans Bejeweled Bralettes Instagram @dualipa We always enjoy how Lipa and her stylist, Posocco, play around with proportion and statement-making items. Case in point: this teeny tiny, bejeweled bralette balanced out a beige maxi skirt, while those intense Marc Jacobs platform heels added a little more flair. The perfect birthday ensemble, if you ask us! Wearing Underwear as Outerwear Is At an All-Time High Prep Sets Instagram @dualipa Matching sets are nothing new, but staying true to her Y2K aesthetic. Lipa opted to break out a polo shirt with coordinating bottoms — both of which were from Lacoste, no less! — then spiced things up with a gold chain belt and green, cateye glasses. Latex Boots Instagram @dualipa Lipa saved one of her sexiest looks for later in the year. In November, the star shared a photo of herself in Japan wearing black, thigh-high latex boots with a beige bodysuit. Although it may seem a bit daring for some, there is one accessible style takeaway here: a large pair of earrings will help amp up almost any outfit. Statement Pants Instagram @dualipa In April of 2022, Lipa shared this controversial outfit, which consisted of a baby tee and a shockingly bright, printed pair of pants. However, she managed to make the combination work, using neutrals to tone down those vibrant bottoms and sticking to a blue color scheme — AKA the color trend that's now beginning to replace Barbiecore.
