Mushroom prints take over style trends in 2022
We know what you might be thinking: why is this a trend? There are so many vegetables and fruits in the world that mushrooms probably seem like a specific choice for fashion designers. However, the trend isn’t as random as you might think, as psychedelic-inspired styles are another big trend of 2022. According to Dazed, trippy, seemingly psychedelic looks have been all over the runways, as many people struggled to escape the countless upsetting and stressful issues that occurred in the world.
For those unfamiliar with the connection between the mushroom print and psychedelic fashion, magic mushrooms, also known as “mushrooms”, are psychedelic drugs that some people use to escape reality. Verywell Mind explained that these drugs “contain psilocybin, a naturally occurring psychoactive and hallucinogenic compound.” Using this medicine can affect you physically and mentally; it can make you feel euphoric, panicky, or nauseous, as well as make you think you’re seeing and hearing things that aren’t really happening, and more. So, with the growing popularity of psychedelic-inspired fashion, it makes perfect sense that mushroom prints have their moment in 2022.
