The new runway collections have made a bold statement about what we can expect in the coming year. Fashion trends for 2023 have already begun to appear in stores. This year’s trends are leaning toward utilitarian and practical clothing, with cargo pants, denim, and wearable silhouettes helping you stick to your capsule wardrobe goals.
Color-wise, 2023 could see the end of the trendy hot pink, making way for new and exciting hues.
Take a look at the six fashion trends that are taking over 2023.
Cargo pants are a wardrobe staple, but they’ve fallen out of favor in recent years. Now, they’re back! They’re everywhere, and not just because utilitarian clothing is in for 2023.
Cargo pants are making a comeback because they are being reinvented as high-quality pieces that are both flattering and stylish. This trend is reflected in tailored silhouettes, interesting pocket placements, elevated fabrics such as silk and organza, and colors other than khaki and olive.
Since the end of the lockdown, “Bare it all” has been the famous adage. 2023 will see the transition of naked dressing from the red carpet- where stars like Cher and Rihanna have been spotted wearing it for years – to street style.
The formerly risqué trend is coming for your weekend wardrobe as well as workwear, from a cellophane-like dress worn over a boldly colored maxi skirt at Tory Burch to a frothy dress revealing undergarments at Victoria Beckham.
The next trend is a classic comeback we’ve all been waiting for.
It’s been a while since we’ve been this excited about denim trends. From double-waisted to carpenter jeans, even the most glamorous runway designers appear to be on board.
We can’t get enough of the denim used for strapless dresses, shirts, and even underwear and shoes. Choose classic silhouettes and cuts that you can wear again and again after their novelty has worn off, regardless of the category you choose.
The amount of glimmer on the 2023 runways would lead you to believe we’ve returned to the Roaring ’20s. While sequins may feel like a thing of the past once the clock strikes midnight on January 31, this year’s designers are arguing for “daytime shine” – wearable separates that can dress up even the basic staples like tank tops and blue jeans.
While this trend is available in all metallic shades (gold, bronze, rose gold, etc.), we prefer the liquid silver look because you can also use it as a neutral.
The next trend of 2023 comes with sweep and flair.
If you thought 2022 was the year of the mini skirt, you should reconsider. The impractical mini skirts of yesterday have been replaced by maxi skirts, which will rule the year.
Expect a lot of low-rise, pocket-adorned silhouettes and floor-grazing denim skirts, as well as styles in various prints and unexpected materials like velvet, in line with cargo and denim trends. Long hemlines are here to stay!
Cobalt blue is the new black. We haven’t seen such a strong color story on the runway in a long time, but this season’s cobalt blue is so unique it feels like a sea mist on a morning day. It’s the deep blue that will excite even the most color-averse.
It’s bright enough to draw a double take but subtle enough to work into everyday wear. What is the most appealing aspect of cobalt blue? It complements Pantone’s Viva Magenta.
