Like clockwork, it’s time to mark your calendars for another fashion month, the biannual multi-day gathering of runways in New York, London, Milan and Paris, where next season’s biggest trends finally find their place. beginning . The upcoming shows, of course, raise the question of which fashion trends will be set to dominate next spring, and some of the rising trends may already be a strong indication. In recent seasons, fashion has embraced the ultra bling and logomania of the early 2000s, as well as the almost dystopian Balenciaga core that a number of brands have quickly picked up on. Then it looks like the designers meet somewhere in the middle.
While it’s true that the trend cycle shows no signs of slowing down, most trends actually evolve into updated versions of themselves season after season rather than hitting a full pendulum swing at once. . So, ultimately, you can imagine that spring 2023 fashion may look like an advanced version of the trends you see today. For example, while fashion’s obsession with Y2K apparel has, until recently, harked back to the mcbling era and adjacent styles (think the answer to “What would Destiny’s Child wear on the red carpet, circa 2002?”), recent developments in the trend point to a grunge-inspired shift on the way. That’s not to say we won’t see polar opposite trends emerge, as all signs (like the return of the Canadian tuxedo) point to a renewed celebration of elevated basics after an increased period of maximalism.
A few Spring 2023 collections, like Mowolola’s debut at Paris Fashion Week, have already made the runway, but the rest, and ultimately the bulk of trend proof, is yet to come. Till then, we have left some thoughts on the spring 2023 fashion trends you can expect.
denim on denim
What it lacks in novelty, the denim-on-denim trend (on its way to becoming the next It-combo), makes up for it in versatility. No longer just the Canadian tuxedo (standard jeans and a jacket), the future of denim-on-denim is a little different – think denim bralettes and corsets at the top, and mini or maxi skirts at the bottom (and we can’t guarantee you won’t see a denim bikini either.) For spring, steer clear of blue denim and try the color trend with green, yellow or orange.
Goodbye Jorts, hello Lorts
Jorts have unexpectedly become a defining summer 2022 trend (we’re talking ultra-long jorts, especially baggy ones), with fashion girls dressing up grandad style with tube tops and heels. Before writing it off as one of the many short-lived microtrends of the moment, it’s worth considering its potential to evolve into something a bit more versatile, like slimmer longline shorts in various fabrics, colors and prints. which you can enter if the dress code is sneakers or business casual.
grunge from the past
If you’ve been secretly trying to chase the collective nostalgia of 2000s fashion, better luck later in the year. While there’s no sign of the Y2K skin getting the boot anytime soon, Spring 2023 may come with an aesthetic overhaul (and you may already find a few trend setters on board) – Consider Swapping the Barbiecore and bedazzled jeans for bolder jeans and more sulfurous counterparts of the era.
Dresses over pants
If there’s a running theme in fashion trends these days, it’s that anything goes. The discussion around sartorial self-expression seems more important than ever, and with it comes more eclectic mainstream trends – some with unexpected layering combinations, such as dresses over pants. Not to be smitten until you’ve tried it on, the wide variety of dresses and pants to choose from on the market makes this pairing look completely different every time, whether it’s style a mesh dress over a bralette and jeans, or pair a long tunic dress with pants.
Maximalism has been taking center stage for a few seasons now, but if recent styles that have been hitting the catwalks and exploding on social media are any indicator, we’re getting back to basics. However, a staple boom never comes without a few twists to the norm – think jeans with standout details like cargo pockets or contrast stitching, taking styles like cargo pants into dressier territory and basic tops with deconstructed or asymmetrical necklines.
When fashion is in the midst of a dramatic pendulum swing as it has been since the start of the pandemic, it’s not uncommon to see two trends coexist that seem to be the antithesis of each other. . If you’re looking to move away from bold leather and hardware as Y2K takes on a more grungy personality, try opting for a combination of lighter hues and airy fabrics with garments such as light, sheer buttonholes and a dress instead. long fluid with ultra-feminine and elastic details.
see through dresses
See-through dresses have taken on a new purpose in fashion, rising beyond their designated beach cover-up role until now, a style you’ll find on any fashion girl’s radar, especially in this when it comes to their going out wardrobes. We can expect the progression of the trend in 2023 to bring more creativity and risk-taking when styling the look (consider taking the bikini-style layering beyond the beach or adding a vest per above), as well as designers who refresh the classic sheer dress with additions like deconstructed elements, statement silhouettes and embellishments.
