As the temperature rises and flowers start to bloom, it's time to update your wardrobe with the latest fashion trends for Spring/Summer 2023. This season is all about embracing bold and playful styles that are perfect for making a statement. From denim on denim to mermaid-core, ruffles and sheer to metallics, there's something for everyone to enjoy. Get ready to dive into the fashion trends for the SS'23 season!
From the tiny micro skirt trend of last year, this season is all about practicality. Sprinkled throughout the Spring 2023 runways, the maxi was revived, thus becoming the item worth investing in this season. Invest in a maxi denim skirt (or five) in different washes and textures, and be sure this will be your next favorite piece of the season. From maxi cargo skirts to denim, linen, and satin ones, there is plenty to opt for!
If you're looking to add a touch of whimsy and fantasy to your wardrobe, then mermaidcore is the trend for you. Inspired by the mystical world of mermaids, this trend features iridescent fabrics, pearl accents, and ocean-inspired colors like aquamarine, seafoam green, and lavender. Embrace the magic of the sea with mermaidcore dresses, skirts, tops, and accessories. You can also experiment with holographic or sequin fabrics to achieve that ethereal and otherworldly look. From Molly Goddard’s diaphanous skirts to Giambattista Valli’s embellished minis, it’s time to step into the world of the living doll, a candy-coloured world of ribbons, ruffles and plenty of drama, as the fresh, new season opens with childlike joie de vivre.
Get ready to turn heads with the metallic trend for Spring/Summer 2023. Metallic fabrics in gold, silver, and bronze are taking center stage on the runway and in street style. From metallic dresses and skirts to metallic accessories like shoes and bags, these shiny pieces can add a touch of glamour and sophistication to your wardrobe. Experiment with different metallic textures like sequins, foil, and lamé for a high-shine look that's perfect for a night out or a special occasion.
Embrace the Botanical Garden! Florals are a perennial favorite for spring and summer, but this season it's all about bigger and bolder blooms. From oversized floral prints on dresses and skirts to large floral appliques on tops and jackets, bigger florals are making a statement in fashion. Play with different color combinations and floral patterns to create a fresh and vibrant look. You can also mix and match floral pieces with other prints to achieve the perfect spring look.
Fashion likes to work in extremes; typically, you have the overtly oversized and the impossibly teeny tiny, (and everything in between is something of a footnote). For the past few seasons, we've seen the latter proportion dominate—Fendi created a microscopic version of its iconic Baguette, while Jacquemus's infamous Le Chiquito has handles bigger than its main compartment. No doubt about it, these bags are fun, but if you're more practically wired, then you too will laud the return of the jumbo tote, as seen at Loewe, Bottega Veneta, Chloé and a slew of other designer heavyweights known for their arm candy.
Denim has always been a wardrobe staple, but this season it's all about doubling up on denim. From denim jackets paired with denim jeans to denim maxi skirts and waistcoats, the denim on denim trend is making a comeback in a big way. Mix and match different washes and textures of denim for a chic and effortless look. You can also experiment with denim accessories like hats, bags, and shoes to complete your denim-on-denim ensemble.
