7 Fashion Trends to Get Ahead of in 2023
Oversized suits, wide-leg pants, and cut-outs ruled 2022. But where is 2023 headed as regards fashion? Are we going to see any more of the 2022 styles or we are up for something novel?
Well, it seems we're in for a bit of both. The 2023 fashion trends have started rolling into stores, thanks to the spring/summer 2023 runway collections that marked the end of the last year. From cargo pants and sheer clothing to low-rise waists and body chains, 2023 fashion trends will highlight novelty and fun in its outfits.
And when it comes to color, 2023 won't be boring in any way. Although we may finally wave the hot pink trend goodbye, we may be seeing more exciting hues, like the Viva Magenta.
So, let's get right to it!
1. Denim Everything
Are we going to be seeing denim outfits in ways we've never seen? Absolutely! At least, from what we can see now, the denin trend appears to be making a grand entrance in 2023, with dresses, tops, and even undergarments made of denim material.
2. Sheer Clothing
Cellophane-like and see-through, sheer clothing is making the rounds in recent runways, and hardly would you find a store without a handful of them in 2023.
Of course, celebrities like Rihanna have been donning naked outfits since forever, but it's becoming a trend more than ever. But it's not all over the place yet.
So if you're looking for something new to add to your closet, some sheer bliss might do the trick.
3. Low-Rise Waists
This one is mostly for the street style, biker, and gothic girl aesthetic. But if you're a social media sensation, this trend is right up your alley.
It's nothing entirely new though, seeing that it was a 90s trend as well. You want to pair your low-rise waist pants with a crop top for a full midriff-baring impact.
4. Cargo Pants
Cargo pants have been a sensation for some time now, and the trend is moving into 2023 and possibly beyond. But what's even more trendy about cargo in 2023 is it might not just be limited to pants — it's going to be cargo everything.
From tops to skirts and even dresses, this utilitarian trend will see pockets in several interesting places in beautiful colors beyond the typical khaki.
5. Viva Magenta
The 2023 color of the year predictions will once more be making it to the fashion trend this year. Of all the predictions, Pantone's Viva Magenta stands out.
Viva Magenta, a feminine and rich red-purple hue, is said to evoke prosperity. Looking to subtly exude class and charm during your next public appearance? A Viva Magenta dress is one way to make a statement.
6. Sunset Ombre
The spring/summer runways of last year brought something new to our doorsteps: the romantic soft sunset ombré. We saw colorful displays with red fading into orange and yellow hues — even white — on the same dress. The warm vibe the look creates is quintessential of summer so it won't be surprising to see this trend all over the place in 2023's outdoor season.
7. Body Chains
Silver body chains seem to have become popular among some baddies and social media sensations, and they really can make a simple outfit so much fun. You can layer over a button-down shirt or a neutral tank top.
We've talked about seven fashion trends for 2023, but which of them should you invest in? As a woman of style and substance, certainly not all!
How to Find Trends That Go with Your Style Aesthetic
We talked about style aesthetics in this article and why you need to identify yours. One benefit of identifying your style aesthetic is that it makes it easier for you to handle trends, knowing which to smash and which to pass.
Because, not all will suit your personality, body type, color preferences, and profession.
Say, your style aesthetic is rustic, vintage, or cottage-core, the low-rise and sunset ombré may not be your thing. On the other hand, a Viva Magenta dress will be right up your alley if you're a corporate executive.
Again, no fashion trend is made for everyone as they all fit into varying aesthetics.
In essence, if there are seven fashion trends in 2023, you mustn't jump on them all. You just have to find what color, style, and shape align with your style aesthetic. And if that still feels daunting enough, a style coach could be of immense help.
