All the July 2022 Magazine Covers We Loved and Hated
Summer is admittedly a slow time in the fashion universe. Sure, you have the menswear and haute couture shows. Not to mention all those seasonal trends to shop. But the next couple of months will be pretty low-key. Even when it comes to magazine covers. Many publications are putting out double issues for June/July or July/August. So the list of July 2022 magazine covers is relatively small compared to other months. That doesn’t mean they’re not something to behold, though.
Finally, we feel like it’s summer. And no, we’re not just talking about the soaring temps. The styling on most covers has us dreaming of beach vacations and lounging poolside. Naturally that means swimsuits galore. Even if some of them aren’t really swim-friendly.
On the complete opposite side of the sartorial spectrum, we’re treated to a catsuit, a long-sleeve dress and even a shearling-lined coat. At least the beauty stays true to the season. We’re talking sun-kissed, fresh-faced looks that prove less can sometimes be much more.
There is some diversity. Beyoncé, Imaan Hammam, Penélope Cruz and Hikaru Utada all make appearances. We just wish there was size, age and gender representation, too.
Here are the July 2022 magazine covers we adore and the ones that miss the mark.
Not our favorite Beyoncé cover.
Harper's Bazaar UK
The angle makes it interesting.
Marie Claire France
Not feeling the side-eye.
A truly captivating cover.
A black catsuit isn’t exactly summer-appropriate.
The head tilt is a tad awkward, but at least it allows those earrings to really shine.
Marie Claire Australia
The styling and composition are off.
Vogue Hong Kong
The fact that Sydney Sweeney’s head blocks part of the masthead is off-putting.
Imaan Hammam can do no wrong.
Harper's Bazaar Greece
An almost perfect summer cover.
We kinda like this…
