Fashion is ever-changing. What’s in now may be out in a few months (or vice-versa). If you want to be at the top of the style game, then here are the top 9 fashion trends you should watch out for in 2023.
1. Bold Prints Fashion Trends
Bold prints have always been trendy, and 2023 is no exception. Designers love their loud, attention-grabbing styles, and wearers love their vacation-ready aura.
Bold prints suit all seasons (and years too.) A short, bold dress is perfect for beating the summer heat, while a striking long-sleeved top or trousers work great for colder seasons.
In case you don’t want to make much of a splash, you can always channel this trend by donning a printed bag or classic shoes with your muted attire.
2. Tailored Pieces
If you have a lot of tailored pieces in your closet, then you’ll be glad to know that they’ll remain chic this 2023. Like bold prints, this trend is a true classic for both men and women.
While it may be too hot to wear tailored blazers this summer, men and women could opt for tailored vests in the meantime. But once autumn or winter hits, feel free to go all out with your tailored suit, structured pants, and bespoke accessories.
Saying denim is a timeless trend is an understatement. After all, it has been clothing people in style since its invention in the 17th century.
For 2023, the denim trend goes beyond the usual pants, though.
This summer, denim sleeveless tops and crop tops are top choices for most. The same goes for denim shorts or miniskirts.
The good thing about denim is you can mix and match them with any of the fashion trends in this list. For example, you can pair your denim crop top with a bold-print skirt or tailored shorts. Why not rock most of 2023’s classic fashion trends if you can?
Metallics is a top choice for those looking for formal wear and for good reason. This chic trend screams elegance at every turn.
In 2023, metallics are leaning more toward cool, silvery tones. From Chanel’s shiny dresses to Valentino’s blinding outerwear, metallics are no longer limited to nighttime events. For example, you can pair your metallic top with tailored pants or denim if you plan on going casual.
5. Sheer Trend
Apart from drinking lots of water, one of the best ways to keep yourself fashionably comfortable this summer is to try the sheer trend.
As the name suggests, the sheer trend is all about airy, almost-transparent pieces. You can go for a sheer top or a sheer bottom and layer them with ‘solid’ articles for balance.
Then again, you can always wear sheer everything and fully embrace this trend. It’s sweltering outside, anyway!
Fringe is a trend that comes and goes, and it’s considered one of the hottest this year. In fact, fringe-everything has been spotted on the runways of popular designers, including Versace to Victoria Beckham.
While fringe pieces are usually worn on casual romps, they may be donned on formal occasions, as well. For example, you can wear a long, fringed skirt with a classic tailored top. Not only will this make you look impeccable, but this will let you rock two 2023 trends simultaneously!
With these record-breaking heat indices, it’s not surprising that most of 2023’s trends are all about keeping cool.
This trend speaks for itselfーstylish pieces with strategic holes and openings. They show skin while concealing some at the same time.
The best thing about cutouts is they can help you flaunt your best areas and hide your not-so-good ones. For example, if you have great shoulders but want to hide your tummy, you don’t necessarily need shapewear. For sure, there’s a cutout fashionable top or dress that will expose your top area while hiding your midsection.
Thanks to the Little Mermaid movie, Mermaidcore has become one of the more popular trends in 2023. Seen on the runways of Valentino and Elie Saab, it’s all about striking embellishments, shiny fabrics, and fishtail silhouettes.
Without a doubt, mermaidcore is one of the best styles to wear on formal night outs. Pair them with customized jewelry, and you’ll definitely be the belle of the ball.
9. Costume Pieces
While the sheer and mermaidcore trends are all about refined, delicate pieces, the costume trend is the total opposite. It’s all about going big with puff sleeves, balloon silhouettes, and commanding capes.
This fancy style is the perfect choice for days when you want to stand out from the rest. That said, you can always dress this trend down with tailored, sheer, or denim pieces. Remember: fashion is all about balance.
From classic tailored pieces and denim to sheer apparel and cutouts, there are so many trends to watch out for this 2023. As always, feel free to mix and match them up for a unique, personalized style. It’s what fashion is all about, after all!
