What are the trends going to be in 2022?
We asked ourselves this question and when doing this research we looked at beauty + fashion trends, home decor trends, trends according to Pinterest, and more to pull together a list of trends that are predicted to make an appearance this year.
Let us know what trends you hope to see and what new themes you want to see from ScreenKit this year.
Aesthetic Trends as Predicted for 2022:
Alt Tumblr Revival- There is some anticipation that there will be a revival of what many consider to be alt tumblr. Think Arctic Monkeys, denim, angsty scrapbook vibes, and tons of memes. Gen Z is said to be the main driving force behind bringing back alt tumblr as an aesthetic. Interested in themes that have this aesthetic? Check out our Retro themes!
Space, but with a Modern Twist- We have already seen some space elements hit the runway, and with the increasing talks of space travel, this 60s aesthetic is set to make a comeback. All of these takes will have a way more modern appeal. It’ll be interesting to see how this aesthetic makes a comeback! Interested in themes that have this aesthetic?

Muted Colors + Softness- We have seen a resurgence of bright and bold colors and in 2022, muted colors accompanied with softness are both expected to make a comeback. Think balletcore, Bridgerton, Downton Abbey, cottagecore, all in one. Interested in themes that have this aesthetic? Check out our Pastel and Solid Color themes!
Ironic Fashion + Maximalism- With such a focus on minimalism the last few years, ironic fashion and maximalism are both making a comeback. Ironic fashion is a little more cheugy than maximalism might be, but both make a loud statement aesthetically. Statement pieces and things that pull your attention are going to be big for this aesthetic. Interested in themes that have this aesthetic? Check out our Scrapbook and Retro themes!
Embracing Nostalgia- There has been a comeback of all things 90s and from our childhoods and it is because more and more of us are embracing nostalgia. This will be an ever bigger aesthetic this year with more and more things making a comeback. Interested in themes that have this aesthetic?

Travel Inspiration- Travel inspo is making its way back into a lot of aesthetics especially in our homes and on our devices. With many of us being limited in our travels the last few years, we love having travel inspiration around us. Interested in themes that have this aesthetic? Check out our Photo themes!
Wellbeing- As many of us continue to adapt to a new normal around us, we are becoming more and more in tune with our own wellbeing. Our wellbeing is going to be considered with all aspects of aesthetics heading into 2022. Interested in themes that have this aesthetic? Check out our Neutral + Minimalist themes!
Celebration + Food- Similar to travel inspo, celebrations are something that many of us have had to look forward to over the last couple years and there is an anticipated focus on celebrations, food, and that aesthetic for 2022.
