Spring is officially just under two weeks away. It may not feel like it, given the low temperatures and (mostly) grey skies we've been, er, enjoying recently. One way of distracting yourself from grim weather, though, is to look ahead to the new season, which will be here before you know it. Luckily, the biggest trends for spring/summer 2022 include pieces you can start wearing right now.
While it feels exciting to embrace new trends and switch up your style for a new season, obviously the idea of a whole new wardrobe is neither financially viable nor sustainable. So, what if you could find all of the major spring pieces you might want for both less money and less environmental impact?
Welcome eBay's Brand Outlet. It's the place to find all of your favourite brands, including Zara, M&S, French Connection, H&M, Tommy Hilfiger and Adidas, for less than you'd usually pay.
So, what should you be looking for this spring? Hemlines are still on the shorter side – everyone from Miu Miu to Chanel to Dior sent mini skirts down their catwalks, while when it comes to colour, the brighter the better. Valentino, Halpern, Balenciaga, Christian Siriano and Roksanda all ensured vivid hues were the order of the day, so don't be afraid to wear fuchsia, emerald, daffodil yellow or electric blue.
Biker jackets, too, are having something of a comeback. Supriya Lele, Miu Miu, Acne, Prada, Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen and Simone Rocha all showed their take on leather jackets for spring, featuring everything from puff sleeves (Rocha) to denim overlays (McQueen).
The other beauty of finding all of your spring essentials at eBay's Outlet is that you can do so from the comfort of your sofa/desk/even bed. No trawling through endless rails of discounted clothes and accessories – your new season bargains are just a click away.

It's true that the mini skirt is having a moment but that doesn't mean midi dresses are on the out. On the contrary, Balenciaga included a polka dot mini dress as part of its SS22 collection, so you can't really argue with that.
Denim is still big news for spring/summer and these wide leg jeans will work wondered with chunky knits while the temperatures are still on the chilly side.
You can never go wrong with florals for spring and this dress also combines the new season's penchant for bright, zesty colours.
Leather is big news right now – see Julia Fox and Kim Kardashian as proof. Their signature brand of super-tight trousers, however, is not the most wearable option. Instead, pair these wide leg strides with tucked-in blouses and heeled boots.
A bouclé jacket will never go out of style – team yours with a matching skirt à la Chanel's catwalk or wear with jeans for a polished take on weekend style.
There's not one style of biker jacket you should be wearing this season – really, anything goes. This leather cover-up from Diesel is giving late '90s vibes, ticking off two trends in one.
Espadrilles have been a spring/summer classic for decades and this denim pair will look particularly good with cropped jeans.
